It’s been a funny ole week this week with this virus going around hasn’t it? Hope you are all keeping safe and well.
We have had a few good meals this week and I can’t wait to share with you.
Monday 9th March
Breakfast was the usual poached eggs on toast followed by soup and mini broughies for lunch.
Now tea time was so bloody good Ste and I both had seconds!!!
We had chicken and mushroom tagliatelle. The recipe for this is at the end of the blog!!! If you try it make sure you tag me on Instagram or Facebook.
Tuesday 10th March
Simple food day yet I flippin loved it!!!
Sweet omlette for breakfast (if you have a sweet tooth this is just perfect for breakfast!)
Chicken and bacon sandwich for lunch with fruit on the side. I really love sandwiches and every now and then I really miss them. So I swap my favourite poached eggs on toast for something else so I can have this!)
For tea we had grilled chicken with couscous and roasted veg. Ste wasn’t a fan due to lack of flavors but me and Alfie loved it!!
Wednesday 11th March
I had a cheeky midweek fry up to start my day off today which included homemade syn free hashbrowns!
Lunch was something that impressed me if I do say so myself which was pizza on toast! With three slices for a healthy b on the kingsmill crustless this was an absolute must to have again!
Alfie has his swimming lessons on a Wednesday so it always has to be a quick tea. So for today we had quorn nuggets (seriously these are yummy), chips (homemade) and a bit of salad.
Thursday 12th March
Weigh in day!! I didn’t do great but I didn’t do terrible. Maintain this week which was actually better than what I expected so I’ll take that.
My absolute favourite on the go breakfast is white choc and raspberry muffins. Found the recipe from someone else on Instagram and it’s delicious!!! The rest of the day went downhill as I had a really bad FND flare up and ended up with a packet of pasta that hubby made me. Not what I had planned but it was fine. Tea was a very yummy burger chips and salad. Something we don’t have often but still very nice. Tell me what your favourite type of burger is? What do you like to pop on your burger? Veggie burger? Beef burger? Tell me.
Moving on to weekend…….
Friday 13th March
Eggs Benedict for breakfast. Recipe from @becs.bites on Instagram so go check her out. This was really tasty and only 1 syn. Couscous and roasted veg for lunch followed by a curry for tea!! I will share this recipe on my blog this time next week.
Saturday 14th March
Another breakfast favourite which was breakfast hash. Then lunch was very uninspiring with another pasta packet again for lunch.Follwed by stuffed pasta for tea which you can find on a previous weeks blog!
Finally the end of the week. Sunday 15th March.
This morning I decided to start the day with a bit of a fry up.
Lunch was leftovers while tea was much the same and whilst it was nice it was a wing it job as we didn’t know what else to have. So we had gnocchi bake with cheesy garlic bread.
I would love to know what meals you enjoyed this week.
So let’s get cracking on this chicken and mushroom tagliatelle eh?
For this you will need;
Fat free soft cheese
Chicken stock – about ½ pint
Start off by frying the chicken off so it’s browned. Once browned set it to one side.
Then add to the pan your onion and chopped mushrooms with a little bit of your chicken stock.
Also you need to get your pasta cooking now, probably should have mentioned that!!!
After that mix the tub of soft cheese into the stock and add to the pan of mushrooms and add the chicken back in.
Cook for a further 8-10 minutes. Once that’s done and the pasta is done mix the pasta in with the sauce and serve, adding a garnish of fresh parsley if you are feeling fancy!!!
We had second helpings of this and it was honestly really really tasty. If you do try it make sure you tag me on Instagram!!!!
