    We do this too! Sometimes we just buy loadsa little nibble/snack things just cos we don't know what we fancy!
    I'm wondering what we can have tonight, didn't take any meat out the freezer cos I just don't know what I fancy! We normally eat lots of pasta, spag bol & lasag and could be bothered having that again.......fancy something diff but just don't know what?

    Owww, now you've got me thinking!?

    i adore proper food, mince n dumplings, toad in the hole, roasts, etc. Don't have them very often though. Been making a tomato and mozzarella salad alot recently, cause it's something I've found I can make without much help

    I am bored with what we eat day in/day out so have been trying to make something new one night each week.

    No way could I go shopping without a list, my trolley would be full of food that wouldn't make any meals!

    We are the same too seems to be same old same old every week, occasionally do something different but not often. Normally when i try something totally different theres always someone who doesn't like it *sighs*

    Maybe we should all post the meals we jhave each week over a set no of weeks and then we can nick each others recipes.

    I'm with Lucy - I can't go shopping without my list. But we do seem to eat the same things month in month out - sunday roast, spag bol, shepherd pie
    I need a new recipe:hissy:
