What’s cooking this week #2

Here’s what we’ve been eating this week:

Chilli con carne
Salmon fishcakes
Vegetable balti
Fishfingers and chips – Nick’s choice!
Quick and easy tortelloni
Lemon roast chicken with new potatoes and salad


The salmon fishcakes a la Jamie Oliver were a disaster. Note to self: don’t be lazy, make your own mash for fishcakes, supermarket stuff is too watery.
