Fri Irish Stew & Mash
   
8am Overnight Fruit, Yogurt & Oats
1pm Vegetable Broth, Home-made
 This weeks menu is more expensive than usual all because I started the week with a hankering after a good quality Beef Curry. If I'd have swapped to chicken, and dropped the fresh ginger and garlic it would have saved about £3.00 . However once I get an idea in my mind I cant be swayed. The photo doesnt do the curry real justice, it was much better than most I've had for a long time, so a big tick in the box for me. It made enough for 3 portions, so I even have a spare currin in the freezer to stop the urge next time it comes along.
