A quick and easy meal for 4 people.
2 × 350g packs of Ready to Wok medium noodles. Empty into large pan and pour boiling water from kettle over them, stir to loosen them up and cover with lid. Do not heat pot.
Get a medium sized microwavable bowl and add the following ingredients:

Add some leftover cooked meat if you wish. Heat in the microwave for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove and add 1 chicken stock cube and cover with boiling water from the kettle stir well to dissolve the cube. Add a good splash of sesame oil and a chopped raw spring onion. Drain noodles then return to pot add soup mixture to noodles and stir. Serve in soup bowls and enjoy.

Next week we shall be making fishcakes. This is so simple but a little time consuming so quite a good one to make in advance, say at the weekend to hold over for Monday night’s dinner.
For this you shall need, 1 pkt of frozen smoked haddock or cod, your choice, fresh parsley, 8-10 medium sized potatoes and breadcrumbs, I keep leftover home made bread for my breadcrumbs.
