Ok, trying to balance a fussy toddler, with a husband who works long unsocial hours (and can't reheat fish at work without a mass protest) oh and all on a budget. So menu swaps it is. I'm using the book for some of this. Anybody got any good all rounder suggestions? So far I'm going for the slow roast lamb on Sunday and some soups to swap out the offending meals..... It is a massive balancing act trying to keep everybody happy.

Hi Izzy, love the planning! Try to cook in batches and freeze things this is very cost effective - so things like chickpea curries, the beef stew and stir fries, then you always have something in hand ready to be heated up for the family! 😘

The turkey meatballs in tomato sauce is amazing - I swop the turkey for pork as I can never find turkey! Xx

Thanks Jay, I spotted the butternut and coconut and so will be giving it a go. Gonna have a big batch cook Sunday and fill the freezer. 😘

The Mexican mince is a winner! Butternut squash and coconut soup too :-)

Good tip Emma especially as I have some beetroot leftover from missing the risotto this week. Sweet potato is about the only thing she will eat 🙈

Amazon Autiefilpper. Look for shopping lists by organised mum. It is a total life saver when trying to organise everyone.

The Mexican lettuce wraps work out very cost effective if bulked up with brown rice. As does the beef and apricots. Xx
