On the menu today we have:
Bacon and Egg on toast ( the same as Monday hence the copied photo)
and the ever present cup of tea 🙂
Tuna with pasta, beans and tomato
Chicken, pasta and vege in soup sauce
Today’s cooking prep was easy. While my breakfast was cooking I boiled up a cup of pasta ready for lunch at work. Once cooked, I put the pasta in a microwave container along with the second half of my tuna, the last 1/3 of can of bean mix and 1/3 can of tomatoes. It all got “nuked” at lunchtime.
Start with a drumstick cut off the bone and cut into bite size pieces.
In a pan over medium heat, brown the meat off in a bit of butter.
Once browned,take the chicken pieces out of the ban and keep aside
Add 1.5 cups of water and a sachet of soup mix to the pan along with a cup of mixed vege and a cup of dried pasta.
Gently scrape up any chicken bits that are stuck to the pan.
Simmer gently until the pasta is cooked and the soup reduces to a nice thick sauce.
Add the chicken pieces back to the pan and heat through well.
People have been asking if I am hungry.
The answer is NO. If anything I feel a bit bloated. I put this down to the amount of bread and pasta. ( I am not going to be able to eat all the pasta)
The menu plan for next week (which I will post on Friday after I shop ) has a lot less pasta and more variety of meals.
