Meal Planning Monday 29/07/19

How are we at the end of July already? This week has been crazy and has flown by.

Last weeks meal plan went good again, I finally went food shopping after not going properly for a few weeks due to various things.  We had a bit of a heatwave and a huge thunderstorm last Tuesday so we didn’t get much sleep.

The last few meals I have made the husband has moaned he is going off part or all of it so I have been struggling for meals to do, so this week I asked him to write down what he wanted so I could shop accordingly and the below is what he has chosen.  Do you ask your partner what they want to eat?

Lasagna (His favourite all time meal)

Tuna Pasta Bake

Enchiladas

Shepherds Pie

Southern Fried Chicken wraps & Salad

Meatballs

Burgers (No chips)

Does your partner decided on meals or do you decide all?

Have a great week all

Mum’s 65th Birthday Party #MySundaySnapshot

I’ve been so rubbish keeping up to date with doing this linky.  I try and do it the same time as I do my meal planning Mondays for the week but seem to be failing miserable.

Anyways, a couple of weeks ago it was my mum’s 65th Birthday, she didn’t want to do anything but we weren’t going to let it pass without.  Me & dad arranged a surprise gathering at their house with her closest family & friends.  Dad took her out for a late lunch and when they arrived home we were all in the garden.

Meal Planning Monday 22/07/19

So last week was OK but our meal plans didn’t go as straight forward as I thought. Wednesday’s meal we had Thursday night as Wednesday I had my nephews school leavers play from 6pm and didn’t get home till gone 8pm so I ended up ordering a MacDonald for my tea.  Then Sunday we ended up going out for tea with friends which was lovely.

It’s the start of the 6 weeks holidays I believe too for most of you so I hope you all have some great plans made for the summer.

All is quiet now for us no more birthday’s or party’s to be organised.  It my parents wedding anniversary this week but that’s it.

Hope you all have a great week.

Meal Planning Monday 15/07/19

Last weeks meal plan went well too, I think we pretty much stuck to the exact meals which was good going.

The weekend was a huge success for my Mum’s 65th Birthday surprise gathering.  She didn’t guess a thing.  My dad took her out for lunch and then arrived back and we were all waiting for her in the garden and she did get a little teary.

Monday’s now are my working from home days so I’m hoping to be more productive and innovative with meals and try making things in the slow cooker too, so any recipes feel free to pass my way.

Have a great week!

Sausage pasta bake

Homemade chicken fajitas & chips

Party Time #MySundaySnapshot

Last Saturday was our Son’s 2nd Birthday party BBQ with family and friends.  Despite the weather been a little dull we didn’t let that dampen our celebrations.  We had a lovely time and he has been truly spoilt.

Look how happy he was with his Raa Raa cake.
