Meal Plan - Monday 17th August 2015

Not having fun writing meal plans as feeling very stuffed after every meal and busy with the boys, so finding a good moment to think about food is rare. But here we go

Monday - Large chicken samosas, the below is with Turkey but we have some cooked chicken, I am going to try the boys with a simple version of this, not sure how it will go down.

Tuesday - a lentil and onion soup from Rachel Allens Easy Cookbook, have to laugh as it's rather a winters evening food but it's not BBQ weather. Boys will have cheesy pasta with broccoli on the side

Wednesday - My lovely sister and family are coming to see us, we need a quick and easy dinner lets  do jackets with tuna mayo for all of us

Thursday - A lovely cannelloni idea from slimming world I found, please I am not trying to loose weight I am just going for healthy ideas making food lighter. I again am going to try the boys on this

Friday - a spicy but light meal, we will have tortillas instead of the egg base. Should be a clean but tasty Friday meal. Boys will have Friday night fav fish and chips with peas

Saturday - I have to be honest I am shattered by the weekend and we have SALT and shoe shopping so something pre cooked for us.

Sunday - Roast chicken with the trimmings though if the MIL is coming over we may pop to the farm shop and get a treat roast of pork or beef

Meal plan catch up - Monday 3rd August to Sunday 16th August 2015

I promise I have been doing our meal plans but with school holidays, the baby bump and not knowing were Mr MC&W was going to be based for work I seem to have lost track of writing it up. So here is a little update from the last couple of weeks....

Monday - A ready meal we had left over from holiday as it was catch upon all housework and Mr MC&W was in London

Tuesday - From the Madhouse Cookbook by Jo Pratt - Mushroom, Broccoli and Gnocchi we all had this but no mushrooms for the boys.

Wednesday - One my Mum always made us Milanese style sauce with spaghetti. This is a family recipe which we love, we all had this one.

Thursday - Homemade frying pan pizza, always a family favourite

Friday - Chicken Curry- I must admit I do buy the sauce, it will be Korma as they boys have got into curry

Saturday - Mr MC&W was on his brothers stag do so the boys and I had Jackets, Beans and Cheese as I had no idea how long it would take to get the boys down to sleep.

Sunday - Ready Meal - As hubby would be back late and shattered I decided it was simple to get in a meal I could pop in the oven and not think about

Monday - Hot Dogs with onions and salad - trying the new Tesco Finest ones

Tuesday - Jackets with Chili beans with added courgette, mushrooms and peppers. Boys had beans, cheese and egg again.

Wednesday - Baked Mushroom Risotto. The boys had a tomato risotto.
