Monday meal ideas: Mum food

This week I am going it alone. Rob is away until Saturday so that means that come dinner time I can cook whatever I want! For me that’s LOTS of veggies. Things I can whip up quickly just for one and eat on my lap on the couch in front of whatever TV I want!

Do you cook differently when it’s just you at home? Toast and breakfast for dinner feature highly on the menu? Me too!

Hope you all have a great week 🙂


  1. YES. Toast and eggs for me because it can be made in about three minutes. Or salad if I am feeling particularly adventurous… Or I may roll he boat out completely and defrost some soup. I do better when cooking for the whole family.

  2. I make harvest bowls. From cans! It’s about to be a Pinterest sensation any minute now …

  3. that is dinner sorted, thanks…try grated raw brussel sprouts,grated carrot and apple, and kewpie mayo, soooooo good x

  4. Oh yeah. Breakfast for dinner. I am a big believer.
    I eat all the stuff Mr Unprepared doesn’t like, when he’s away. It’s bliss.

  5. Oh yes i hear you! I love having a bowl of cereal for dinner if it’s just me, sitting on the lounge watching MY tv shows.:)

  6. Lisa Mckenzie says

    Yes indeed I love Mum dinners,easy and lots of things he don’t like like scrambled eggs,boiled eggs and salads and veggies!Enjoy Beth xx

  7. Faux Fuchsia says

    I cook 3 different meals every night so if I am on my own with the kid I make only 2. Blessed relief.

  8. If the Mr isn’t eating I make my nan’s savoury mince with mashed potatoes, which he absolutely hates. I love it & so does my daughter.

  9. I am with you. I rejoice when the hubs is out for the night or away. No, not because I don’t like him, but because I can have a flat bread pizza or my best ever – JAFFLES. Don’t forget the pineapple and ham and the most disgusting (read: delicious) of all – creamed corn, spring onion and camembert!!! Kids happy to partake also. Easy peasy.

  10. Dinner when alone for me is usually leftovers or toast with butter, tomatoes and salt. And a glass or three of red wine.
