Lockdown is continuing and this week has been the first where I’ve got a bit ‘meh’ about cooking again. The OH moaned one day (which I knew he would), but given I’m the one cooking it’s my choice, unless he makes a request. He never does.
I need to order another produce box this week, and some meat from the butcher too. My freezer was defrosting quite nicely as we emptied it out quite well, but now there’s spare bread back in there, it’s getting fuller again.
We’ve had meat back from the slaughterhouse this week, so we’ve got plenty of beef to eat on the farm. I’m just short of pork, gammon, bacon and sausages, hence the butchers order.
We’re back rotating recipes now – I’ve seen some really nice ones I want to try, but I don’t think the OH will eat them. So it’s hard to find new things.

My keto diet has gone to pots for nearly 2 weeks. There are too many nice foods in the house and I’ve been a bit piggy. So I need to get back to it. I’ve included where I’ve made keto options – with the best success being a keto sausage roll. I’ll add the recipe in another post – I’m a bit behind with adding all the recipes I wanted to.
Our meal plan for the last 3 weeks
Week 7 meal plan
Sunday – roast chicken, cauliflower cheese, roast potatoes and veg

Thursday – Beef burritos
Friday – pizza, chips and salad. Keto pizza
Saturday – Chicken in mustard and honey sauce

Saturday – homemade sausage plait, wedges, beans. Keto sausage roll with fat head dough, celeriac chips, peas
Week 9 meals
Sunday – Roast chicken, cauliflower cheese, roast potatoes and veg
Monday – leftover chicken and leek pie
Tuesday – cottage pie
Wednesday – turkey meatballs with pasta
Thursday – bacon, egg and chips

Hopefully I can find some new recipes rather than having to repeat too many. I want to also use my slow cooker more, as well as doing more summery recipes. I love salads, but I need to have more substantial items for the OH.
If you have any family favourites not already on my meal plans, please do let me know.
