For breakfast, I’m going to cook an omelet with mushrooms and spinach.  I’ll cook it the night before and will heat it up in the microwave at work the next day.  The recipe is here.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday’s lunch is pulled pork made in the Thermomix.  I’m going to wrap it up in mountain bread and serve it with the beetroot salad from the Thermomix Everyday Cookbook.  The recipe can be found here.

Monday and Tuesday’s dinner is a chicken stir-fry with Asian greens, snow peas and baby corn.  The simple stir-fry recipe is here.

Wednesday’s dinner and Thursday’s lunch is sausages with a cauliflower and white bean purée and peas – all made in the Thermomix.  The new draft recipe is below.
