I'm skating in by the skin of my teeth today - only writing our meal plan, after our weekly Aldi trip at half eight at night. This weekend was our annual Brownie holiday and my first time as QM for the Brownies. Harry and I returned home late yesterday afternoon - my two sole requests being that I didn't cook and that we didn't eat sausages, but let's not dwell on that. Today's been a bit of a slow one as I've tried to locate my get up and go... it does seem to have been left in the Brownie holiday house.
As it's half term - Harry and I are a bit up in the air, lost of our baby groups are on half-term break so we're going to be hoping for some sunny days where we can wrap up and go to the park.
Breakfasts: I've been a bit porridge-d out this last week so have bought some puffed wheat cereal to try with almond milk and chopped bananas.
Lunches: I'm going to make a root veg soup tomorrow - possibly in the slow cooker so I can have something hot.
Monday - Gammon, chips, peas and sweetcorn (a quick and easy tea for our post shop evening)
Tuesday - Butternut squash and bacon pasta
Wednesday - Leftovers
Thursday - Chilli con carne - which I'll be doing with cauliflower rice
Friday - Leftover chilli as a burrito for M, and with a baked potato for me
Saturday - Sausage hotpot
Sunday - Leftover sausage hotpot
That's our week - lots of winter warmers, easy nights with leftovers and things that can go in the slow cooker. Winners all around.
As Saturday is Halloween - we'll be making sure we're prepared with our Teal Pumpkin, and some non foodie treats for any trick or treaters with allergies. Will you be joining me? Why not have a look at some of the details of the Teal Pumpkin Project here.
Baking this week is taking a back seat after making a ridiculous amount of sugar cookies, fairy cakes, and flapjacks with the Brownies I'm all baked out!
I'm popping off over to At Home with Mrs M, and I'm an Organising Junkie to link up with their Meal Planning Mondays. Why don't you head that way too to see what everyone else is up to.
