This week’s menu includes the most popular recipe on the site with over 1,900 views(!)  – pulled pork.  I’ve posted last week’s cottage pie recipe and I’ve also drafted a recipe for chilli con carne; which I’ll try later on in the week.  Quick and easy is the name of the game for the rest of the week – with crispy skin salmon and a chicken stir-fry.

For breakfast this week, I’m going to make an omelet with one egg and some milk and put that on an English muffin with sliced tomato.

Lunch on Monday and Tuesday will be the pulled pork and I’ll serve this with a salad of cos lettuce, corn and cherry tomatoes.  The pulled pork recipe can be found here.

Monday’s dinner will be with the crispy skin salmon cooked in the Varoma and then panfried to crisp up the skin.  I’ll serve this with steamed peas and broccoli.  Use this recipe for instructions on cooking the salmon

Tuesday’s dinner and Wednesday’s lunch will be a chicken stir-fry with Asian greens, snow peas and baby corn cuts.  The simple stir-fry recipe can be found here.

Wednesday dinner and Thursday’s lunch will be a new recipe – I’m going to try my first chilli con carne.  I’ll serve it with cauliflower rice using this recipe from the Super Kitchen Machine website.  The draft recipe for the chilli can be found below.
