Meal Planning Monday 22 April



Well - things are getting easier in this family of six and I've progressed to roasting a chicken weekly again. In the next few weeks I'll reintroduce 'proper' cooking again and I'll even be scheduling new things to try. Small successes are already coming through - on Saturday, I threw together a banana breakfast loaf (literally, all the ingredients go in one bowl at the same time!) On Sunday, 2nd & 3rdSister helped make Rocky Road with leftover Easter chocolate, which provided an ├╝ber-pudding after our pork roast (with new potatoes, roast potatoes, cabbage, sweetcorn, yorkshire puddings, apple sauce and gravy). Now I just need to remember to take and upload photos as I think this blog would benefit hugely from that!

Meat Free Monday - Greek Meze with pitta, falafel, salad, cous cous olives & Abel & Cole's amazing tzatziki

Tuesday - Wholewheat pasta with roast chicken pieces and pesto

Wednesday - (Supermarket) curry , basmati rice & chapati

Thursday - Roast chicken and chips

Friday - Pink peppered mackerel salad

Saturday - Pizza Night

Sunday - Sausages, mash, yorkshire puddings, gravy, veg and chocolate gateau for pudding!

    1. Thanks Kim - although we haven't had the pink peppered mackerel yet, had to have an emergency cheap & cheerful meal out on the way back from taking 1stSister to Brownie Pack Holiday. Thankfully it keeps for a while :-)

    1. We always enjoy our Greek nights - sadly we only had Greek yogurt for dessert and not Baklava....

    1. Maybe you could sneak it in there without them noticing - we do pasta in tomato sauce quite often, or margherita pizza!
