What's for dinner today ladies?

We're having gammon joint (quorn sausages and mushrooms for Shaun as he's vegetarian), potato and sweet potato mash, carrots and broccoli.

Daniel's having pizza and garlic bread with a couple of carrots, a couple of broccoli tops, and a small amount of gammon cut up small lol. He's very rigid about his diet but improving, and we're trying to re-introduce varied and healthy foods without completely putting him off.

Michaela has some of the potato mash mixed with water to try as well as her milk. See I can be a domestic goddess SOME days.

We are having sausage casserole with mash potatoes tonight. It's quick and easy to prepare and I can just leave it in the oven to cook for an hour. It's one of the kids favourite meals.

didnt really use quantities as i just threw it all together but basically...

half a butternut squash, cubed ( about 1")
an onion diced
about 125g risotto rice
White wine ( about 100ml)
veggie stock ( 600ml ish)
Thyme
Salt and pepper / season all
bit of butter

put stock in saucepan and heat

in a different pan...


Melt butter in pan ( i use a wok like pan)
throw in onion and squash, stir until softened
throw in risotto rice and add wine..keep stirring until wine has all been absorbed
start adding stock ..pour in a bit to cover rice and keep stirring until absorbed..keep repeating until rice ( and squash) is cooked and liquid is gone

throw in thyme ( about a 1/2 -1 teaspn) and season according to taste


serve with rocket with small beetroot chopped into slices..drizzle over dressing

( balsamic vinegar, olive oil, tiny bit of wholegrain mustard and seasoning

We had sausage caserole last night.
We're having hotdogs tonight. Mia is poorly so I doubt it would be worth me doing a 'proper' meal.
