Meal Planning Monday - what goes here?

So yep, Meal Planning Monday. I've not meal planned or blogged for a while and wanted to get back on track. 

I don't know if I've mentioned *ahem* but I had my wisdom teeth out last week - I'd been having pretty much monthly infections so my dentist decided that enough was enough and I was popped on the list to have them out. I deliberately didn't google beforehand but am now beginning to wish I had as OMG the pain.Today (Friday) has been my first day back with tea in my life and dear God I'm so British, I missed it more than I missed eating solids!

I'm back at work next week so need a meal plan to keep my head on track. 

Breakfasts: I'm all about the summer porridge at the moment. I've pulled the recipe from various places on line, so make mine with:

1/4 cup oats
1/3 cup skimmed milk
1/4 cup Total Greek 0%
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp maca powder
1 tsp honey/ maple syrup

I then add pretty much whatever fruit I've got in - bananas, blueberries... anything really. I tried peanut butter but couldn't get it to mix in well.  

Lunches: I'm not sure yet - my go-to preference of crudites and houmous or houmous type things is a bit too difficult to crunch at the moment. Maybe I'll make some flatbreads and have them with the leftover chicken instead... did I mention my River Cottage Bread course? Watch this space!


Monday: Roast chicken, new potatoes and vegetables/ salad

Tuesday: Leftover roast chicken with baked potatoes and salad

Wednesday: Chicken and broad bean risotto

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday: M's night... 

Saturday: We're at a working day for our campsite all day so I'm going to go off budget and suggest takeaway, maybe pizza

Sunday: We're going out for a belated anniversary dinner as this week it's been ruled out owing to the necessity I have for soft foods. 

Baking - I've just made vegan chocolate courgette brownies (with very un-vegan icing) as a belated birthday cake for M. Post should be up later this week. 

That's it for me, don't forget to pop on over to At Home with Mrs M to see what everyone else is up to.
