Its one week before pay day. I don’t want to spend any more money this month, so food wise I have to make do with what I’ve got.
- 2 Kg baby potatoes
- 3 kg chicken breasts and a small packet of salmon.
- 1 packet of mushrooms
- 1 yellow pepper
- 1 Onion
- 1 packet of penne pasta
- Baby tomatoes.
- Wheat flour, chicken stock, eggs and various spices, oils and butter .
Chicken pie (serves 2)
I cooked the 2 chicken breasts and 5 small potatoes. Sautéed the mushrooms and onion in some garlic. Added half a block of chicken stock and mixed it into the mushroom mix
I then Peeled the potatoes, cut up the chicken and potatoes into smaller pieces and added everything together. I added some thyme and black pepper
I then made the crust with flour, butter, salt, eggs and water. I poured it on top of the Chicken mixture and baked it in the oven until the crust was golden brown.
I was a little lazy, I was planning on making potato quiche but I ate the eggs for breakfast
I made baked potato, fried mushrooms (sautéed with garlic) and salmon.
Pasta (serves 2)
I made half a packet of pasta the usual way but added some chicken stock to the water. I then fried half an onion and the yellow pepper. I made a white sauce and added everything together. I then topped it off with some fresh tomatoes because it looked kind of dull.
