Carrot Lentil and Salmon Patties

Carrot Lentil and salmon patties feature

Some weeks the whole meal planning notion goes right out the window, as much as my life and brain function so much better when I plan and organise, some weeks the wheels fall off.

Last week was one of those weeks, where if it didn’t rain busy it poured busy…….birthday celebrations, parent teacher interviews, scout adventures, extra work commitments, Father’s day celebrations, not that I’m complaining I just wish things could space themselves out sometimes (in a perfect world Dannielle!).

One of my sweet thoughtful friends said to me ‘I know sometimes it’s hard to see how the week will work, but just take it day by day, hopefully it will be over before you know it’. And what do you know here I am tonight writing about it and we somehow made it out the other side.

The good news is I’m starting to get some routine back (well sort of, I still have 3 loads of unfolded clean washing on my bedroom floor).

Last week was definitely a ‘wheels falling off’ kind of week in the meal planning and washing maintenance department.

Friday night I managed a quick grab (non-planned) grocery shop, Sunday for Father’s Day I made sure Zadada got one of his favourite home cooked meals (lamb cutlets, gravy and veggies, he’s not hard to please) but didn’t get to do any major meal planning for the coming week, this week (my brain just didn’t have the space) so it’s kind of been a make-the-most-of-what’s-already-at-home kind of week.

I thought you might like to know what I made for dinner last night (Tuesday night). Tuesday was a home day (I love home days!) around lunchtime I started thinking about what I should make for dinner, so did a quick scout between the pantry and fridge and come up with …….Carrot, Lentil and Salmon Patties served with a side of my Easy Fried Rice and some steamed green beans.

I haven’t made a batch of salmon patties in ages in fact I think the last time was a post I did almost 2 years ago ( I did say ages). Looking at that 2-year-old post I figured a bit of a revamp was in order.

These Carrot, Lentil and Salmon Patties are perfect for a make-the-most-of-what’s-already-at-home kind of meal. Keep a big tin or 2 of salmon and lentils in the pantry as staples, some veggies in the fridge or freezer and you’ll have a quick and easy go to healthy balanced family meal. For the record my fried rice had a few substitutions (you may notice the broccoli) I didn’t hear any complaints though and I avoided having to make a special trip to the supermarket.

      They hit the spot and saved me a trip to the supermarket that’s for sure Malinda. Next week is going to be fun! xx

  2. I love recipes like this – we have a standby tuna pasta dinner that we magic up in the Thermomix when we’re caught short in the meal planning department. We always have lentils but I’m going to add a tin of salmon to next week’s grocery shop – because this is a most delicious just-in-case!

      You are too sweet Sammie.
      Tuna in the Thermomix sounds delicious to me.
      The lentils add that little bit more volume to the mix without carbing it up too much ????

  3. I think my boyfriend is going to love these! I always have tinned chickpeas lying around (vegetarians do that…) and we always have rice, pasta sauce, and plenty of GF pasta. A quick weeknight, by-the-seat-of-my-pants dinner is usually stir-fry or a ton of roasted veggies with our individual proteins of choice. A great one for cleaning out the veggie drawer :)

      Yay I hope he gives to a big warm hug when you make them for him. Stir-fries and veggies are always so yummy. If there’s fresh produce around you’re set. Love dishes that clean out the veggie drawer. Have a gorgeous weekend xx

  4. Hahaha yes I had one of those weeks last week too! We were lucky to have toast for dinner lol! These sound great – I’m not the best person when it comes to eating enough fish so this is definitely going to have to happen!! Thanks for linking up with our Fabulous Foodie Fridays party xx

      Glad weren’t the only ones. There’s nothing wrong with toast provided it’s oozing with Nutella!! Kidding (not really) I love sour dough toast with s good spread of butter and either honey or Nutella.
      I hope you’re able to get your fish on soon.
      Have a gorgeous weekend xx

  6. I’m glad you linked this up hun, it’s so worth it!
    I have these things in my cupboard too and would be perfect on this weeks meal plan. Seeming just like you the past 2 weeks have been fly by my pants, school holiday crazy and some times lazy and just zapped of energy.
    I blog at least 4 times a week, but this week I’ve done 2… I just haven’t got it at the moment. theres lots to do and I’m hoping that next week when schools back in full swing I’ll be back to my usual organised routine.
    So thank you, these babies are going on my ‘Meal Plan’ this week… as I’ll actually write it this time!!! lol
