What we have eaten, so far this Year

On Tuesday afternoon we sit down for a millisecond and write the Menu/Shopping list for the following week. Hubby kindly does the shopping for me on a Wednesday and our local Supermarket catalogues also starts on a Wednesday and go through to the following Tuesday, so we always look out for any good catalogue specials. Our menu feeds three Adults, one of those being a family member who lives next door, is very unwell and eats like a sparrow. On the other hand my Husband eats enough for two, so really the quantities we buy and cook are for three to four average Adults. Our family member, next door, insists on shouting one meal as a take away. This is usually a Chicken and Artichoke Pizza from 8 slices Pizza Bar. They use quality ingredients and the amount of toppings is very generous. This pizza is not on their menu, but they are happy to make it for us.
