Meal Planning Monday - an easy week
I've had a few weeks off meal planning on the blog, it feels like 10 months of sleep deprication caught up with me and I metaphorically hit a wall. I felt like I could have slept for a 100 years, and was walking through treacle just trying to keep going. Last week, something shifted and that fog started to lift. I'm sure the weather helped. Anyway - back to meal planning. Some things don't change - money is still tight, and we're shopping carefully, making use of special offers.
Breakfasts - I'm having overnight oats, and piles of fruit. Harry has porridge, toast and a banana. Seriously, that baby can eat for England at breakfastime.
Lunches - Last week we had Syn free tabbouleh with salmon - Harry had his mixed up with a little olive oil, houmous or warm tomato puree to help it stick together. The weather isn't quite what it was, so I'm going to make minestrone this week...
Monday: Mum very kindly gave us a bowl of beef casserole for supper last night. I had it with brocolli, M with pasta.
Tuesday: Leftover bacon and butternut squash pasta, the recipe for this is going up on the blog this week as it's awesome.
Wednesday: Schnitzel, homemade Slimming World friendly chips and veggies
Thursday: Roast chicken, roast potatoes and veggies
Friday: Leftover chicken, baked potatoes and veggies
Saturday: Stir fried chicken, brocooli and mushrooms with rice for M and more veggies for me.
Sunday: A fresh batch of Butternut squash and bacon pasta
So that's it, another week, planned late but planned nonetheless. Be sure to pop on over to At home with Mrs M and see what the other planners are up to.
