And if Im up for it I will make a friday night a pizza night, where I make all the bases and the kids make their own pizzas and we watch movies and eat pizza.

If you want any recipes let me know.

I have more but I think that's enough. lol

Wow, looking at that I do have a few more meals than I thought! I was getting into a bit of a meal rut but I think I was just cooking up the easiest meals, I might have to copy this list to remind myself of what I can make.

Everything is from scratch, I get rotten headaches from packet mixes and tin soup, I wish I didn't because it would make things a lot quicker when I'm in a hurry!
I haven't written mine yet but i will give you some of the meals that we make on a regular basis.

Chicken schnitzels with either gravy, parmy or bacon sweet chili and cheese topping. Served with mash and veg or chips and salad.
Crumbed fish with sweet potato mash and veg or salad and baked potatoes.
Steak with mushroom sauce, sweet potato mash and broccolini.
Chicken pasta bake.
Roast pork chops with roast potatos and veg.
Spag bol
Apricot chicken with rice and veg.
Devilled sausages.
Crumbed chops with potato bake, and veg or salad and chips.
Marinated chicken with hassleback poatatoes.
Napolitana pasta,,,, pasta with bacon cherry tomatoes, rocket and parmesan,,,, Fettucine with roast pumpkin, bacon, feta and rocket,,,, macaroni cheese with bacon and spinach.
Zuchinni slice.
Homemade pizzes.

We are trying to save money as we have at least one night a week that consists of toasties, eggs, baked beans etc.
