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 

Roast dinner with all the trimmings

Bakerdays Letterbox cake review

I have reviewed these cakes previously so when the opportunity came up again I couldn’t resist.

I decided on ordering it for my friend’s 30th back in April as you can’t have a birthday without a birthday cake, right! I know my friend loves Flowers and butterfly’s so I chose the “any age floral number cake” priced at £14.99 for the letterbox cake

I was able to order it and set the delivery date that I wanted it to arrive so it wasn’t ordered to early or too late and missed my friend’s birthday. You could even have it delivered straight to their door as a surprise if you wanteda1.

The processing of the cake was so easy, choose your design, the flavour of sponge you want and then it gets delivered straight through your letterbox hassle free

I would be sure to buy any upcoming friends or family’s birthday cakes from this company as they are perfect for any occasion.

So we have decided to book our 2019 holiday with our friends and their little girl, there is 6 weeks between her & Freddie so perfect ages for them to play off together.  We haven’t even booked anything for this year yet but it gives us something to look forward to next year.

This week is going to be a little different as we have both decided to start on the slim fast diet and see how we get on, as we would both like to lose a bit of weight, so we will be having the shakes, snack bars and one meal.

If anyone has got any meal choice for slimming world or slim fast that I can make please leave them in the comment box below or a link to your posts.

We will let you know each week how we are getting on.
