personally what i would do is ...

1-bung it all in the fridge
2- ready steady phone a takeaway !!

but then my cooking skills go as far as pouring water on a pot noodle!

What did you have?

I would have made sweet potato chips with a cheesy cauli and broccoli bake with the chicken grilled - keep the kale for tomorrow and serve with some crispy bacon on the baked potato with a salad of rockett, strawberrys, blackberrys and raspberrys with a balsamic dressing!

Just a thought...

In fact keep the strawberrys - marinate them in balsamic and serve with a bit of marscapone and shortbread for dessert!

Ditch the sweet pots, dice everything else cook off add the stock then put in the blender for a nice thick warming soup.....

Serve with a nice crusty roll......

yes Pammie I was watching - I watch every week. I find even I can manage Simon's recipes. The Magic Pudding last week was yummy but I didn't like to think how many calories ;-)

I love big sweet potato chips - they are the best! Slice them and roast in olive oil - just fab!

The kale's great as a side veg if you treat it simply. Chop it into broad strips and microwave in a lidded casserole and a half glass of water for 2 or 3 mins. Maybe add some chopped garlic before you cook it.
Next time add chopped toms instead of water.

Sweet potato (great idea) and other potato: Hotels would do a mixed sautee of all the veg, I CBA with all that grease.
I think I'd go for sweet potato boiled then diced big or is it diced big then boiled? Ordinary potato boiled in a separate pan - the timing will be different. If you end up heading to mash, then add a large spoon of seedy mustard and a knob of butter to help it.

The chicken. Any chance of marinating it before you grill it on a kebab? Half an hour would do, but overnight is better. Try plain yoghurt and ground cumin, or soy sauce and olive oil marinades. I'm assuming you don't happen to have buttermilk, no I thought not.

Which gives us 6 eggs to make a pudding.
If they are as fresh as fresh can be, then chocolate moosse (help I can't spell!) in individual ramekins.

If they are a bit "yesterday", then we'll cook with them. Chocolate souffles? Bread and butter pudding? Poor Knights of Windsor? Microwaved steamed pudding with custard? A million cake recipes? You can make, cook, and be eating a Victoria Sandwich in 30 to 40 minutes. What about pancakes or crepes suzette?

Oooooh I'm hungry now....

Even better idea for pudding.

Individual baked Alaska.
But you'll need a bit of cake for the base layer, a good slice of proper ice cream, and a topping of whipped up meringue. A super hot oven just to crisp off the meringue peaks and WOW.
