I’ve done a timetable for the week showing what classes and activities the girls are up to.
I’ve updated our family diary with what and where we’re supposed to be (for some reason my electronic diary isn’t working… need the IT Help Husband to get onto that, the prospect of nasty clashes is in direct proportion to the ability to have a diary with the right information on to hand).
And that leaves me with food – I hate wasting food and I feel as if we’ve got into a bit of a food rut, that we’re eating the same boring things each week.
In an ideal world I’d like to get to a place where I have a few weeks of menus planned and then all I have to do is tailor them to changes in who is around and where we are and order the groceries to be delivered. Trouble is that I have sat down to try and list out all the things we eat and I like to cook and that I know people won’t be too fussy about and its not a very long (or even very exciting) list.
And I’m totally lacking inspiration. Not helped by the whole having to keep things dairy free – yes I know I can tweak receipes but I’ve lost imagination and it seems like everything needs to include cheese, or cream, or something on the banned list.
So please can you share with me your menu plans, your fabulous easy to cook recipes and please can you inspire me.
I need a new set of recipes that are easy to throw together and that the girls and fussy Mr Muddling will enjoy. I’m happy to try and adapt new things to be dairy free (or even to have nice dairy including things for Mr and me).
Can you help?
