What we are eating for dinner

Dinner planning, every week I struggle to think of new things to eat. This week I decided we needed some meat free days.  What we are eating for dinner this week is mostly veggie. It will be kicked off in style tonight at our local veggie supper club night. It is the harvest feast tonight and I am very much looking forward to it.

Plans for this week:

Saturday – Out for dinner

Sunday - Aubergine bake – layers of potato, aubergine, courgette, peppers and tomato sauce topped with mozzarella. Sides of garlic bread and a green salad.

Monday - Pizza – not home made, but the new pizza express range from Iceland. Will update after to say if they are worth buying.

Tuesday - Veggie fajitas – Roasted peppers, refried beans, corn and courgette salad. Plus guacamole, tomato salsa, sour cream and mixed salad leaves.

Wednesday - Black bean burgers with sweet potato wedges

Thursday - Aloo gobi, Makhani dal and a mushroom rice. With pickles, raita, poppadoms and naan bread.

Friday - Chilli – first meat dish of the week. I will be bulking it out with loads of peppers and a mixture of beans. Served with either rice or baked potatoes.

Other eats..

I’m attempting to make lunches and breakfasts more interesting. We seem to have the same old things week in week out and it does get boring.

For breakfasts: Waffles with fruit and yogurt, scrambled eggs on toast, Avocado on rye with poached eggs, omelettes, roasted tomatoes on toast, shakshouka, buckwheat pancakes with beans and cheese.

For lunch:  Sandwiches – trying to vary the fillings and the breads as 9/10 we seem to have ham or egg mayo. Pasta salad, potato salad, burrito wraps, quiche.

I’m constantly trying to think up new things for breakfasts or lunches. If you have any suggestions let me know in comments. Better still if you have pinterest boards dedicated to food, point me at them.  Hopefully this lighter, less meat week will raise our energy levels and I will feel more like running.  Who knows, I might even enjoy it !
