WWALW #3 // Lazy dinners, rice krispie chicken and BBQ Sundays.

This past week feels like it passed in a blur. Work had been insanely busy, coupled with a headache that would not shift over a couple of days meant that my motivation by the time dinner time came around was lacking.

Monday // I started off the week with great plans and ideas - and made a dinner for the boys. They love chicken nuggets and instead of freezer diving for once I grabbed some chicken tenders, and coated them in flour, egg and rice krispie style cereal before baking in the oven. These were particularly yummy! Me and the big fella finished them off alongside a little roast chicken, new potatoes and tender stem broccoli.

Tuesday // I was feeding just myself this evening as the husband spent some time with his brother on his birthday. I had a little leftover chicken tenders from yesterday which I stir fried with honey, some ginger and soy sauce with a whole pepper. Piled on top of freshly steamed rice was a comforting and lazy dinner

Wednesday // My mother in law had made a huge batch of curry. I love the curry so much. Soft melt in your moth meat, gently seasoned. When I was pregnant with the little one this was my craving... and i picked the boys up from their house and left with an ice cream tub filled to the brim!!

Thursday // I had picked up from Asda a ready to cook back of Bourbon burnt ends. Super simple - heat in oven. At the same time I made some sweet potato wedges and steamed some green beans. The beef end were really tasty and would buy them again.

Friday // Ultimate in laziness. I had after school taken the boys straight to a open air cinema viewing of Trolls. I had picked up snacky bits and ate chips with them while sitting on a picnic blanket in  a field. The husband had had a large late lunch. Which meant our "dinner" was plantain crisps, thin dark chocolate digestive biscuits and a glass of wine. Pushing the boat out!

Saturday // A little more civilized but just as lazy. A out of a jar sauce of macaroni cheese (with added bacon) and garlic bread for 3 out of 4 of us. My eldest is strongly opposed to all types of pasta. He opted for a fish finger sandwich.

Sunday // Was a little BBQ at the in-laws with burgers, chicken skewer kebabs and sausages. Followed my ice cold melon and ice cream.

It was a keep it simple, keep it quick kind of week last week. This week is gearing up to be the same (as I sit at the dinning table with two poorly boys today) Summer colds suck.
