Lucy’s List – May (week 1)

Well it’s all looking a bit bleak today, isn’t it. I don’t like getting political here because my blog is my happy space, so I’ll keep it brief and simply attempt to distract us from our post-election slump with some pretty photos of food…


MONDAY: cheeky roast chicken, mash, roasted carrots and parsnips, proper gravy, and bread sauce


TUESDAY: beany veggie slow cooker lasagne

WEDNESDAY: slow cooker beef stew with peas


THURSDAY: shamelessly fed the kids freezer food before ordering takeaway (not even sorry!)


FRIDAY: pizza

SATURDAY: oven baked salmon and vine tomatoes, with veggie couscous and coleslaw


SUNDAY: ribeye steak (still mooing), garlic potato wedges, and green beans



PS I am particularly aware today that not everyone will be eating as well as my family in the coming years. So maybe we could all add a tin or two to the food bank collection box next time we’re at the supermarket. I have a feeling they’ll be needing it more than ever.

    excellent advice – I am not suggesting that everyone do this but one month when i was feeling a but flush i bought everything on the food bank list – it cost me under a tenner – everything was basics range except the radox bubble bath – if you can people – do it once in a while

    Thanks Lucy and Mandy for reminding us about the importance of food banks. There is a place near us that I have contributed to (in Westerham no less) but I do not have their list copied down. It is just suggestions I think.

    Your blog is a happy place. Great advice about the food banks. We have boxes in our grocery stores here as well. Love your list this week.

      Thank you. It’s shocking that food banks exist at all in our supposedly wealthy countries.

    Oh my, Lucy, we have an incredible homeless problem here. There are people with signs begging food (mostly they want money) on numerous corners in the town where I work. Sad.
