What's Cooking At The Madhouse ? menu plan week 4

Well, as I always say, the menu plan is there as just a rough idea, so that I know what I can cook with what's in the cupboards and fridge. Last week, I did the plan BEFORE going shopping, then I gave Sophie my bank card and sent her off to do the shopping while I was at work. She came up with various things to cook that weren't on the plan (and cooked them, so no arguments from me !), then at the end of the week, Juliette headed off (after school on Friday until Sunday morning) to stay with Sophie in Lille to visit the further education day. With just me and Pierre to cook for, we ended up going completely off plan too ! I could therefore just re-use last week's plan, as 75% of it didn't get made, but I've already been shopping this week so I'll be working with what's in the fridge. Phew, I need to get back on plan !


lunch- canteen for me, fridge diving for those at home 

dinner - meatballs in tomato sauce with pasta

lunch - another national strike day (against the government's decision to raise pension ages) and I don't think there will be buses this week so I'll probably walk home after work. Leftovers or a sandwich.
