Meal Planning Monday 24/09/18

The nights are really drawing in now, and it’s dark before I know it.  When it’s cold and miserable I want nothing more than warm hearty meals like casseroles and stews and as all it seems to have done recently is rain it seemed like a perfect time to crack the slow cooker out and make some meals in it.  This is the last meal plan for the month of September too.

This week I will be cooking:

Sausage casserole and cheesy mash

Spaghetti bolognese and garlic bread

Chicken in red wine sauce with rice

Cottage pie, veg & gravy

Beef stew with dumplings

Burgers & Chips

Roast dinner with all the trimmings

I do need to go food shopping again so this week we are living out the freezer and having:

Chili beef Burritos and salad

Jacket Potatoes, Tuna Mayo and rice

Chicken & Bacon puffs with Chips

Sausages, cheesy mash, veg and gravy

Chicken & Bacon Tagliatelle with cheese sauce

Well today is the first day in my new old job, basically I used to work here before I left for maternity and then got made redundant whilst on maternity leave and now they are slowly asking for people back.  I have tried to be organised for the week ahead and did a huge food shop on Saturday afternoon spending over £90, the most I have spent in ages but that should see us through for a couple of weeks.

This week we are eating:

Lasagna with homemade garlic bread

Cheese & Bacon potato skins with rice & salad

Enchiladas with chips

Katsu chicken curry with Rice and poppadom

Shepherds pie with Veg and gravy

Omelette & Salad

Roast Dinner with all the trimmings

Meal Planning Monday 16/7/18

Another busy week at work it has been, but we had a lovely weekend as we had a family photoshoot on Saturday in Lutterworth with a guy called John Jenkins, Sunday we decided to get up early and go to Weston Super Mare to enjoy the weather while we can. It was a lovely day out, and it was only Freddie’s second time on a beach.

I also had an interview this morning in Warwick for a potential Accounts Payable Clerk/Supervisor.  Fingers crossed!

I don’t know about anyone else but I hate cooking when it’s hot, I’m hot enough without adding even more heat in the mix.

This week consists of 

Quiche & Salad 

Paprika chicken, beef rice & Salad

Breaded cod, minted new potatoes & Salad 

Steak & homemade chips 

Lasagne & homemade wedges 

Chicken Tagliatelle, with bacon & cheese sauce
