ACTUALLY, MAKE DINNER 
… ARGUES DUBAI BASED FOOD BLOGGER, MARK SETCHFIELD

“Payday can seem a long way off once the bills and brunches are paid for. So my trick for the last week of every month is a five-day meal plan. Buy one big organic chicken – quality meat goes a long way, so check out Ripe Market at Zabeel Park or Market on the Terrace in Downtown. Spend around AED50 (£10) on the chicken. Buy fresh vegs from the markets as they will last longer and taste better. I’ll take care of the rest. .. ”

MEAL ONE
A roast dinner
“The roast is on! Simply cook the chicken and serve with roast potatoes and veg. Serve the lighter breast meat and remove the rest to separate into light and dark meat. This will keep in the fridge for four days. Don’t throw any leftovers away. Fill a pan with water, add the chicken skin and bones and boil on a low heat for an hour to make stock. Stick the veg in the fridge.”

MEAL TWO
Caesar salad
“Take some white chicken pieces and layer with lettuce in a bowl. Toast some bread and cut into cubes for croutons, add some Parmesan shavings and anchovies if you have any tins at home. Drizzle on some dressing.”

MEAL FOUR
Veggie omelette
“Cut up the leftover roasties and veg into small cubes, dice an onion and saute them all in a little oil. Next, beat six free-range eggs and add to the pan and cook for a few minutes. Top with some cheese, grill until the cheese melts and serve. Yum!”

MEAL FIVE
Chicken stir fry
“Fry up an onion, garlic and grated ginger in some oil, add a chopped pepper, the rest of the chicken, some cooked rice and some coriander. Buy dried herbs, rice and tinned food like sweet corn and pulses when you get paid to prepare for the dawn of February!”
