OUR FAMILY MEAL PLAN FOR WEEK OF 05/11/18

Tuesday, 6 November 2018

Sorry for the lack of Meal Plans.  I've been busy getting our citizenship process done, which is thankfully sorted now because it very nearly broke me.  I also had a really bad head cold and cough for a couple of weeks that took ages to shake off. 

It's GCSE mock exam time for us so this week and next so that will be a challenge.  Add in a couple of school trips this week, one that leaves at 4am, and you get an idea of the 'fun' times in our household at the moment. 

Breakfasts will be porridge as it's a filling breakfast to see will set us up for the day.  On the weekend we'll have pancakes and homemade crumpets.

Packed lunches will be Wholemeal Savoury Swirls with crudites, a piece of fruit and a baked treat for afters.  Weekend lunches will be soups from the freezer.  I cooked three large batches of soup using the vegetables from a couple of yellow sticker Wonky Vegetable Boxes.  I was able to buy 6 kg of mixed vegetables for £1.  The soup was frozen in silicone muffin cases then put into containers so we can use however much or little we need.  The rest of the vegetables are being used in dinners this week.

Dinners 






Fish and Chips

Slow Cooker Bolognese

There's no shopping list this week as I went to the supermarket with my friend. Due to an online shopping issue I couldn't use my usual method of grocery shopping.  I'll be back with another Meal Plan, complete with shopping list next week.  

Reverse Advent Calendar #FoodbankAdvent

Sunday, 4 November 2018
We're one of the millions of JAM (just about managing) families in the UK.  There's not a lot to spare each month and we have to be really careful with our money.  There's been times in the past when we've relied on the Food Bank.  My husband lost his job and had to retrain when our eldest was 6 weeks old, we were without regular income for a year and the Food Bank was a godsend.  We also turned to the Food Bank when my husband had a brain haemorrhage 7 days before our youngest daughter was born and was off work for 5 months. 

I make sure that we regularly donate items to our local food bank, even when times are tight for us.  They were brilliant when we needed help so I donate a few items each week.  We increase our contributions this time of year because there's so much extra demand. 

To encourage our children to get involved, and make our contribution more festive, we've been taking part in the Reverse Advent campaign for several years.  During November we put one item per day into large reusable grocery bags, then donate the items to our local Food Bank in early December.

With a normal Advent Calendar, you take something out each day, with a Reverse Advent Calendar you put something in each day.  Our children really enjoy picking out items to put in and we make sure to include non food items such as toiletries, etc.


Why regularly donate to the foodbank? Because over 90% of the food that foodbanks provide is donated by the public.  The Trussell Trust Foodbank network provided 1,332,952 three day food supplies to people in crisis between 1st April 2017 and 31st March 2018, a 13% increase from the previous year. And the Trussell Trust typically sees a 45% spike in referrals for the three-day emergency food parcels in the two weeks before Christmas.

There are many reasons for the increase in demand for Food Bank parcels at this time of year such as higher energy bills as temperatures drop, the cost of extra meals when the kids aren’t at school during Half Term and the Christmas holidays, and November is a 5 week month which means wages are stretched further than usual.  For many families there's just not enough money coming in to cope with the cost of living let alone Christmas.


We gather our items in November so that the Food Bank has time to process them in early December before peak demand hits.  If you want to take part in the campaign contact your local Food Bank to see which items are most needed, and also if they are making up Christmas hampers comprised of a specific list of items.


As well as canned and dried food, consider donating toiletries, nappies, baby milk, baby food, sanitary products, and pet food.  Our local Food Bank prefers 500g packs and 1 litre cartons, and currently has a list of urgently needed items. as well as asking people to register to fill a Christmas Hamper with specific items. 

If a whole Reverse Advent Calendar seems daunting, put a couple of items in the donation trolley at your local supermarket when you do your shopping. Every donation helps, for the cost of a takeaway coffee you could purchase items which will really help those in need.

No automatic alt text available.

I hope you'll join in the #FoodbankAdvent campaign and help make Christmas a bit more bearable for those in need.  Start a new family tradition, get workmates involved, give what you can because it all makes a difference.

 

Baghrir - Moroccan Pancakes

Friday, 19 October 2018
I recently purchased the "Together" cookbook, proceeds from the sales of the book go to help the Hubb Community Kitchen which serves those affected by the Grenfell tower fire.  It is a beautiful book, with delicious recipes, a mouthwatering photo of each recipe, and lots of information about each dish.  I totally love this cookbook, and would thoroughly recommend buying a copy.


When I first read through the cookbook I wanted to cook everything.  I've been slowly working my way through the recipes, and each one has worked brilliantly and tasted delicious.  We decided to try making some Baghrir, Moroccan Pancakes, for breakfast one Saturday morning. They are kind of a cross between a pancake and a really thin crumpet.  Very easy to make, and delicious with honey/golden syrup, chocolate spread, or jam.  I made a double batch to freeze some for later in the week.  The pancakes are dairy free, egg free, and vegan.



Baghrir - Moroccan Pancakes

Recipe from the Together Cookbook

150g fine semolina
75g self raising flour
3.5g fast action yeast (half a 7g pack)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp caster sugar
pinch of salt
375g warm water

Put all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix until a smooth batter forms.  Leave to sit, covered with clingfilm for around 45 minutes.  The batter should have risen and plenty of bubbles should be visible in the batter. 

Heat a non-stick frying pan over a low-medium heat and add about 1/4 cup of batter to the pan.  Cook for 3 - 4 minutes, until the surface has lots of bubbles and has dried.  Don't flip the pancake.  Transfer to kitchen towel and continue making the other pancakes, this batter should make around 12.

Let the pancakes cool for a few minutes before you stack them up, otherwise they will stick together.  Serve warm.



Nana's Fruit Loaf Cake

Thursday, 18 October 2018
My Nana used to bake this if she knew we were coming to visit, and I bake it often for my family for after school snacks.  It's nice to be able to serve them something that I used to enjoy when I was their age.  This loaf cake is so quick and easy to make, filling because of added Weetabix, and delicious with a cuppa.



Nana's Fruit Loaf Cake

150g/1 cup dried fruit, I use either chopped dates or mixture of chopped dried apricots and raisins
215g/1 cup white sugar
50g butter or baking spread, melted
80g/4 Weetabix/wheat biscuit cereal, crushed finely
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)
1 tsp cinnamon/vanilla bean paste (optional)
250ml/1 cup freshly boiled water
1 large free range egg
160g/1 cup plain flour

Preheat your oven to 18-C/160C Fan/350F/Gas Mark 4.  Grease and line a loaf tin, mine was a 900g/2lb loaf tin.  

Put the first 8 ingredients into a large bowl, give it a good stir to combine, then leave for 5 minutes.  

Once the mixture has cooled slightly sift in the flour and add the beaten egg.  Stir gently to until completely incorporated.  

Pour into greased and lined loaf tin then bake for 35 - 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out free from crumbs.  I usually cook the loaf for 35 minutes then check it every 5 minutes after that.  

Leave to cool in the tin for around 15 minutes before turning out on to a wire rack to cool completely.  


Honey, Lemon, and Ginger Drink, natural cold/flu soother

Tuesday, 16 October 2018
It's that time of year again, lots of colds and sniffles about, tickly sore throats too.  Having four children at three different schools, and a husband who travels to and from work on the bus, there's lots of potential for us all to catch the latest cold/flu/cough that is doing the rounds.

I've been making this drink for my family for years, so simple and tasty, yet so soothing for those with the lurgy.

You can chill the drink and have it cold, or drink it warm, whichever you prefer.  Don't pay for special cold/flu relief drinks, this mug of goodness costs pennies and contains only natural ingredients..



Honey, Lemon, and Ginger Drink

Makes 2 generous mugs

Juice of 1 lemon, or 4 Tblsp lemon juice
2 pinches of ground cinnamon (optional)
2 pinches of ground turmeric
1cm piece ginger, very thinly sliced or grated
2 Tblsp honey, or more to taste (substitute for vegan alternative, if necessary)
Boiling water, cooled for 5 minutes
A few fresh mint leaves (optional)

Divide the ingredients between two mugs, add enough hot water to fill each mug, then sip slowly to soothe. Alternatively leave the mixture to cool, chill in the fridge and drink chilled.

OUR FAMILY MEAL PLAN FOR WEEK OF 08/10/18 - £70

Monday, 8 October 2018

I struggled to write our meal plan this week.  Inspiration didn't strike me, and when I asked my family, they weren't really bothered what we had as long as it was tasty.  I've had a mooch about on the internet and found some new recipes to try with my lot along with some of my own recipes.   

Breakfasts will probably be more Pumpkin Spiced Granola as that went down well with everyone and it's not quite cold enough for porridge just yet.  Weekend breakfasts will probably be pancakes one morning and crumpets the other.  I'll make a double batch of crumpets so I can stash some in the freezer for later.

Packed lunches will be falafel wraps or mini frittatas with crudites, a piece of fruit and a baked treat for after.  Weekend lunches will be homemade pizzas and we're going out for lunch on Sunday.


Dinners

Meatfree Monday Red Lentil and Aubergine Moussaka served with steamed mixed vegetables and greens

Macaroni Cheese with mixed vegetables

Jollof Rice with Chicken served with steamed mixed vegetables and greens

1/2 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp ground cinnamon or 2 cinnamon sticks
6 Tblsp tomato puree
400ml water
2 Tblsp garam masala

Puree the onion, garlic, ginger, spices and chilli in a food processor or hand blender.  Stir through the beef mince and put everything into the slow cooker.  Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the garam masala.  Stir well and cook on low for 6 hours on high or 7 - 8 hours on low.  About an hour before you want to serve the curry, remove the slow cooker lid and stir through the garam masala.  Replace the lid then cook for the final hour.  Serve with cooked rice and/or Naan bread, steamed vegetables and greens.
