Meal Planning Monday 15/04/19

We have got quite a few birthday’s this month so busy times ahead. We all got struck down with colds over the weekend too so felt a bit sorry for ourselves, but we’re on the mend now.  I still need to go food shopping too so are living out the freezer.

Meal planning seems to be getting harder again with trying to find more new meals to try.  Freddie comes home every night and eats us out of house and home, so we are also trying to find new ideas for him too.

This week I am cooking:

Beef and broccoli with rice

Sausage & vegetable bake

Fish, Chips & Beans

Chicken chow mein

Treat Takeaway

Chilli Burgers & chips

Roast Dinner with all the trimmings

What are you planning on cooking this week?

Lamb shanks in red wine sauce, roast potatoes and vegetables

Tex mex chicken with garlic bread

Playdates # MySundaySnapshot

Every so often we try and arrange a playdate with our friends and their little girl Isabelle, they only live round the corner to us and there is only 6 weeks between them so they get on really well and love playing together.

We were invited round to our friends and here they both are having a break and reading books together.

It’s great for the kids and for us parents.

Spring Flowers #MySundaySnapshot

Spring has certainly felt like it has been making an appearance over the last week or so with these cold misty morning then the gorgeous warm sunny afternoons.  Then suddenly it has taken a turn for the worst again this week with horrendous wind & rain.

What better way to feel even more spring like with a gorgeous bunch of daffodils.  I brought my mum some at the weekend and she brought me some at the same time – great minds.
