Meal Planning Monday: demob happy

Well, as anyone who follows me on facebook or twitter will know, Friday was my last day at work. In three weeks I start at a new organisation, specialising in working with people with Learning Disabilities. It's an exciting time for me, contrarily to my normal attitude to change I'm embracing this, closing my eyes and leaping into the new. Please keep your fingers firmly crossed for me, I'm really hoping that I'll enjoy the new role, that working closer to home will help with my wellbeing, volunteering, and naturally blogging.

This week is my first week off - today I've baked banana bread, started a sponge to turn into Scottish Morning rolls quite appropriately tomorrow morning. I'll blog about those later in the week.  Thursday is also going to be my day to do the cooking for holiday - we're off to Skye next week, and I'm already excited about the break.

This week will naturally be a busy one - my aim is to do all those things I've been trying to do since moving and just haven't had the time or the inclination to get around to.

Monday: Leftover sausages and spicy lentils

Tuesday: Courgetti spaghetti

Wednesday: Chilli con carne I think... it's a bit weather & veg box dependent at the moment. But if the forecast is to be believed, chilli with guacamole, soured cream and grated cheese.

Thursday: Something quick and easy - takeaway or leftovers maybe?

Friday: We'll be in Scotland... not quite at Skye but nonetheless, something holidayish

So that's my week - I'm leaving the weekend free but am planning on taking some bread, cake and a ham in coca cola (for sandwiches) up with us.

So, there we have it, my meal plan for the week - be sure to head over to At Home with Mrs M for some other inspiration.

Love the idea of courgeti spaghetti - I almost want to swap my spaghetti tofunaise for it as the name has more of a ring.

I sort of wish I did meal plan, but I work round what is in my co-op produce bags and what I find reduced or pluck from the freezer.

The courgetti spaghetti is brilliant - I think it sounds fancier than it is though. Spaghetti tofunaise sounds interesting though - I shall investigate!

Helen it is tricky, because I meal plan on Sunday and don't get my veg box till Tuesday so it does tend to go a bit awry if I get something really exciting - but *touch wood* it's going OK and helping me keep to budget.

Best of luck with the new job!

Mmmm, the courgetti spaghetti sounds gorgeous - and a fab moniker.
