Meal Plan Monday 14th September 2015

I am sat here as ever doing a last moment meal plan, honestly I have no idea where the time goes. The weather is wet and cold making every meal I want to cook be in the slow cooker or involve comfort in the form of cheese or red meat not the healthiest week.

Again Mr MC&W is away Monday night to Friday night so all meals are for myself and the boys.

Monday - sausage casserole with jacket potatoes for us all, this tends to be a mass use up of half tons of beans and chopped tomatoes or veggies that can be eaten up.

Tuesday - left over lamb Ragu I always search online and make a mix of three or four different receipts I find

Wednesday - Tuna Pasta Bake this is ultimate comfort food for me and contains lots of veggies like Peppers, mushrooms, sweet corn and anything else I have in the fridge.

Thursday - stuffed peppers using quorn mince, rice, carrots all mixed together and then finished off in the oven with Parmesan on top and sErvec with salad.

Friday - Fish and Chips with peas

Saturday - chicken Fajitas I get the box from Aldi and it's really good the boys will have chicken curry

Sunday - roast sausages, potatoes and red onions in a whole grain mustard and honey sauce with lots of green veggies. Boys will have chicken, roast pots and veggies

Meal Plan Monday 7th September 2015

We are a bit crazy in the Mud Cakes and Wine household, a few reasons, school and pre school are back, Mr MC&W is on a new work assignment he will be away from home Sunday night and returning late Friday night we only found this out late last week and it's for the next 8 weeks lastly we have a wonderful family wedding to get ready for.

Food has to be easy this week and that can keep warm either in the slow cooker or normal cooker so I do not eat too late

Monday - Jackets with baked beans and cheese for the three of us

Tuesday - a simple pasta and broccoli gratin I can prepare earlier and buy in a cheese sauce then pop mine in a low oven ready for when the boys are down. The boys love broccoli, pasta and cheese sauce so I hope a winner.

Wednesday - courgettes Mediterranean style this is one my mum made for us at home it's courgettes, haricot beans, chopped tomatoes all cooked and served with rice I will get pre cooked rice and pop the sauce in the slow cooker. The boys will have spag Bol from the freezer

Thursday - sausages, mash, beans and peas again this will be for all of us and will be a lot of simple warming things up for me. Ultimate cheat I am buying in mash. Think I need to be honest on these plans.

Friday - Puff Pastry Pizza or homemade pizza with salad I can pre make the tomato sauce and mine will take 20 mins to cook so not too bad

Saturday - PARTY time at the wedding all very exciting as my brother in law is marrying the most wonderful girl 

Sunday - We have invited my mother in law over as your aware she lost her husband only a few moths ago so Mr MC&W will bring her over on Sunday we will have roast lamb and all the trimmings and a good catch up about the wedding. I always get our lamb from our local farm shop it's amazing and truly yummy. I will do this with roast pots, roasted mixed veggies and lots of gravy.
