Meal Planning Monday: 9th May 2016
It's been a few weeks since I last published a meal plan - we've all had variations on a sinusitis-y type bug and it hit me much harder than I'm used to. However, I'm back on form so am enjoying the cool of the early morning and tapping away whilst drinking tea.
And yes, you read that right - I can now tolerate tiny quantities of dairy. It seems I'm not producing enough lactase to manage some higher lactose products, but I've successfully got about halfway up the lactose ladder. I'm mainly still dairy free, save for those splashes of milk in my tea but am infinitely less concerned than I was about accidental consumption.
This week is a busy one for us (when isn't?)
Breakfasts: Overnight oats made with almond milk and fruit
Lunches: Coucous salad
Monday: I roasted a chicken yesterday, so we'll be having roast chicken, baked potatoes and lots of veggies
Tuesday: Leftover roast chicken and broad bean risotto
Wednesday: Leftover leftovers of the risotto
Thursday: I'm out for a ladies dinner at Church so M is having pizza
Friday: We have a pescatarian friend coming to stay - and M has requested courgetti spaghetti - I must remember to get the veggie version of parmesan in this week's shop.
Saturday: Baked fish, salad, and the Halloumi and sweet potato bake from the lovely BakingQueen74
Sunday: I haven't made fishcakes for Harry and I for ages - so I think I'll do those with potato wedges and lots of veggies/ salad
Baking wise - there's cake to be made for one of the ladies at my Friday class whose birthday it was yesterday, and I'd like to try making some low sugar, dairy and egg free gingerbread/ cinnamon biscuits for Harry.
Have a lovely week - hopefully at least some of the sunshine will stick with us. As always don't forget to hop on over to At Home with Mrs M to see what the other planners are all up to.
