This week I have 0 meals planned. I have so much on I haven’t even had a chance to think. I know, I know, surely with such a busy week it would have made it easier to plan ahead and organise but to be honest I’ve totally forgotten. For that reason this week will be a combination of packed lunches, school meals and work canteen food, none of which is cheap or particularly appetising!
I thought I would share the recipe for the chilli & prawn linguini I made last week as it is simple, fast and easy to prepare for a mid week meal. I’m lucky my kids love prawns too.
I use 3/4 pack of linguini cooked to packet instructions. Whilst that’s cooking I crush 3-4 garlic cloves and finely chop 2 red chillies, seeds removed. #topcheat save time by using sainsburys frozen chilli and garlic portions. I fry the chilli and garlic in olive oil and add in 2 packs of king prawns. I turn the heat down and simmer stirring regularly. I then drain the pasta and toss with the prawn mixture and a glug of olive oil. I serve with grated Parmesan.
Last weekend I was working on Saturday, my friend came round in the evening with a bottle of Pimms and luckily I had apples, strawberries and cucumber in, to mix a lovely jug for us. She was laughing at the fact I managed to produce a huge jug and cocktail spoon from the back of the cupboard not to mention fresh mint from the garden. ‘Twas lush!
Today has been absolutely scorchio and we spent the day with lots of friends and a picnic at Linlithgow Marches, it was lovely.
Tomorrow we are having an afternoon tea at work and I picked up some of these delicious goodies from The Armadale Cheesecake Experience. I can’t wait to try them!
