Meal Planning Monday: the quickfire edition
Quickfire mainly because I'm writing this on the train using the blogger app in a hitherto unheard of fit of last-minute organisation as despite the meal plan being written on Friday, there's just been no time to sit and compose a post.
I'm going to do a couple of posts this week about making your food go further with Sainsburys, so on Saturday we treated ourselves to a brisket and pot roasted that to this recipe This has meant that we had leftovers with baked potatoes last night, and tonight and tomorrow there's cottage pie on the menu - taking a 2lb joint of brisket that cost £8 down to a cost per serving of 66p. Score!
Monday: Cottage pie with beans or kale
Tuesday: Leftover cottage pie with beans or kale
Thursday: Pasta bake - loosely based on Pantry pasta with added mushrooms
Friday: Leftovers of pasta bake if possible, or similar from the freezer
Saturday: We're out for my Christmas present of a trip to see Book of Mormon so we'll be treating ourselves to something lovely while we're out and about.
Sunday: Roast chicken I think, mainly to set us up for another week of leftovers.
As I said, a bit of a whistlestop one from me today, but be sure to pop on by At Home with Mrs M and see what the people not doing this on a train are up to.
