Midweek Simple Supper

Midweek again – even though I write meal plans, I sometimes slip up and forget to buy something, or simple don’t fancy what I had planned.

Decided not to use the tinned toms.

I have been shopping, and have a pack of Aldi Chicken Thighs, a couple of packs of Asparagus and randomly a tin of new potatoes – I got chatting to a lady in Aldi and she asked me to pass her a tin of potatoes whilst I was grabbing some tin tomatoes and I asked her what they were like, she raved about them, so for 19p I thought I’d try them.


In a baking tray, I sprinkled olive oil, the drained tinned potato’s,


a load of cherry tomatoes and 2 packs of Asparagus. I sprinkled over more olive oil, salt and pepper, a dusting of dried oregano and a shake of balsamic.


I then boned and trimmed the chicken thighs and popped them on top of the veg.


Into a hot oven (180) for 40 minutes and serve.

The potatoes were fine, I wouldn’t rave about them, but in this type of dish, a stew or a potato curry they would be great and that cheap… brill 🤗

Happy Wednesday – all downhill to the weekend from here 😇

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
