Meal Planning Monday
I thought Spring had sprung last week - I divested myself of my winter coat, donned my sunnies and ballet flats, happily enjoying the sunshine. My thoughts turned to warmer days, lighter evenings and lots of time in the park with Harry. Then of course the weather caught up with me and it turned freezing again, and once again my attention was taken by baked potatoes, casserole and comfort food.
Harry and I are pretty much in our stride for our weeks, between Playgroup, Rhyme time, and Hartbeeps we have a busy time of it. Sometimes fitting in naps and meals mean things go slightly awry, but it's a learning curve. This week we have all of those things and Harry's weigh in at the Health Visitor clinic. It's a nervous time. Almost as nerve-wracking as mine, but for the opposite reason.
Breakfasts - porridge and fruit for me, Harry's having porridge or pancakes or toast at the moment as we're off eggs.
Lunches - I've got minestrone soup that I made at the weekend. Syn free and delicious. I really do like it.
Monday: Leftover ham and veggies with baked potatoes
Tuesday: Ham, egg and potato wedges
Wednesday: Ham, egg and mushroom omlettes
Thursday: Root veg dhaal (will blog this week) with rice
Friday: Leftover dhaal with roti
Saturday: Freezer surprise
Sunday: It's our first wedding anniversary and to celebrate, we're treating ourselves to a Dine in deal from M&S.
Baking wise I made Cherry and almond buns (post up next) at the weekend and those, plus some wonderful dairy free Welshcakes from Mark's mum will probably mean that I don't lose any weight this week!
Here's holding on for more sunshine next week - as always, don't forget to hop on over to At Home with Mrs M to see what everyone else is up to.
