Our favorite promotion is when Marks & Spencer has a Dine For 2 promotion that runs fortnightly (that's every two weeks). We can get a main course meat, vegetable side, dessert, and a bottle of wine for £10 ($16). It is meant to feed two people, but I can stretch it for all four of us. It's quite a deal.
While that's a wonderful convenience, there are days when I actually feel like making a meal for the family from scratch. I've made some new meals that we really like, and I bet you will like them too. The two meals I linked below are from Mel's Kitchen Cafe. I've made many things from this blog, but these are two of our favorites. You should make them soon.
Sweet & Sour Chicken - This dish is amazing. I doubled the recipe the first time , but I did not double the sugar for the sauce; I used one and a half of the recommended sugar. My kids inhaled it. Oldest Kiddo said with a mouthful, "You know mom, this is really good." I don't think I can ask for a better testament.
Crispy Southwest Wraps - A superb dish to have on a Monday or Tuesday to use up the leftover roast or chicken from Sunday dinner. It's a very flexible dish that for the most part accommodates what you have in the pantry. The recipe as listed makes a lot of filling. I bet you could freeze some if you have extras. I gave our extras to the handyman that came to fix a few things to avoid another expat faux pas.
