During the summer holiday’s my sister-in-law (Aunty M) has been staying with us. Her parents are renovating their house and there isn’t a great deal of space for her, so we’ve had an extra mouth to feed. The extra mouth is also vegetarian! So while I’m normally meal planning like a pro it has taken me a little while to get used to thinking about what we can have that’s easily adaptable or a yummy vegetarian dish.
Venison shoulder steaks (picked up in the reduced bit in Tesco) served with roasted baby potatoes (extras from our potato salad from yesterdays BBQ), spinach, peas and broad beans combo and cauliflower cheese. Aunty M will have Mexican Bean Burgers instead of the Venison.
Lasagne, I picked up a veggie lasagne ready meal in tesco reduced section so Aunty M will have that. I’ll make the meat sauce on Monday so that I can just assemble and make the white sauce on Tuesday
Veggie curry with tarka dal, rice and poppadoms. Mango chutney on the side, I like Sharwoods, but R and M like Greta’s.
Sausages, Yorkshire pudding, veggies and mash. We have Cauldron Lincolnshire sausages for Aunty M.
Paella – I’ll make the rice veggie then throw some cooked chicken in at last minute.
Stir Fry with noodles – lots of veggies. Again, I can throw some chicken in at last minute.
We are off to see Uncle T to visit Cousin T and Cousin H; Cousin H’s birthday is next week (on the same day as mine!) so Oliver and I are going with my in laws as R is at work.
After this week we only have one more week of Aunty M staying with us until she goes off to Uni. We’ve absolutely loved having her here and I hope that her being here has pushed us to eat more vegetarian foods than we normally would.
