Meal Planning Monday: Autumn's knocking at the door

Unsurprisingly after a damp summer, August didn't even get to end before the weather started to turn.  Autumn came a-knocking on Thursday night, the first night in many that the windows were shut. On Friday evening full length pyjamas came back out of the drawer, and now on Sunday slippers are on, roast chicken is in the oven and after a small baking session we're ready and prepped for the week ahead. 

I should say Good Luck to everyone (especially my Guides) who starts a new school this week, and for everyone big or small going back to school for the start of the new term. 

It's one of my much beloved weeks at home, so we have a proper meal plan, not meals for one for M, with me despairing of Table Table's ability to cook something, anything without a microwave or deep fat fryer.

So we're having roast chicken with all the trimmings tonight, which naturally makes this week: One chicken many ways 

Breakfasts: A stand off in Tesco meant that I couldn't actually get to my 0% fat Greek yoghurt, so I'm having natural yoghurt instead (I don't like it as much, owing to the natural sourness). Fruit and grape nuts with it too.

Lunches: Salad with cold roast chicken for me, M will have ham sandwiches, crisps, cake, cereal bars and a drink. 


Monday: Leftover roast chicken, baked potatoes, salad/ veg

Monday night is going to herald the chicken being stripped and making stock with the carcass

Tuesday: Chicken and mushroom risotto, using the stock and the leftover chicken.

Wednesday: Leftover risotto for M, I'm out for dinner with the other Guide guiders to plan next term's activities

Thursday: M will be at pinging so something fishy for me

Friday: Baked pasta and meatballs, Lots of parmesan and mozzarella to make this truly diet unfriendly and amazingly tasty. 

So that's our week, mainly poultry orientated but yummy fodder to start our transit in to autumn. Don't forget to head on over to At Home with Mrs M to see what all the other Meal Planners are up to.
