According to this Daily Mail article the average British household lives on the same nine dishes.

I find this statistic very sad.  No wonder why there are so many fussy eaters; they have not been exposed to different foods. This is exactly why I love Menu Monday, I felt I was getting into a rut with my cooking.  I still rely on old favourites but I am trying expand my repertoire. The other shocking statistic in the article, was that “The average mother cooks just three meals from scratch, a week.” How can you justify the cost of convenience food?

And nine most relied-upon are…

1. Spaghetti Bolognese (meat sauce)
2. Roast dinner
3. Shepherds Pie/Cottage Pie
4. Pasta dish
5. Meat and two veg
6. Pizza
7. Casserole/stew
8. Sausages and chips/mash
9. Indian/Curry

Look at all the carbs, no wonder people are getting bigger.

Rant over, now on the matter at heart, my Menu Monday.

Monday – Unplanned working late so I will make do with hot chocolate and a biscuit.  I got home at 10:45pm.

Tuesday  – my favourite Nigella’s two minute steak with mashed white beans.

Wednesday – Lemon and garlic roast chicken with couscous and fine green beans.

Thursday – Pork steak with mashed sweet potatoes and broccoli.

Friday – Stir fry with any leftover chicken, lots of vegetables and Udon noodles.

Saturday – Going out so I will need a fast meal – Mexican Scrambled Eggs

Sunday – Pork Roast with pears
