What i'm loving...


We have found over the past months and years that when we don't meal plan we buy a load of veg and meat that goes unused. We get rotting parsnips and arm-growing potatoes, and no one likes to see that!!

I hate trying to think of what to cook in the morning and i hate doing the same thing week in week out. So we decided to meal plan. Joe picks a few, i pick a few, and Harvey picks spaghetti bolognaise. We only buy what we need and we end up saving a small fortune. I also love knowing the weeks meals in advance and it's one less thing to think about in the morning rush.

So i thought i would share with you the past 10 days meals, for inspiration for anyone who is reading and if feedback is good i don't mind making it a weekly/fortnightly post :)

Chilli chips & cheese - I don't do it very spicey because of the boys but this is always a winner.

Toad in the hole - A great BLW meal, she looves yorkshire pudding!

Chicken curry - Again, mild but also a good BLW meal. Loaded spoons with rice is a big hit.

Pizza - Got to have a frozen meal somewhere!!

Macaroni cheese - Easy, and bloomin' tasty! Jazz it up a bit with bacon if you're feeling adventurous!

Pie and home made wedges - I normally make home made pie with the day befores gammon or something but bought pie is fiiine! Home made wedges are REALLY easy and scrummy. I don't even peel my potatoes, just them into wedges, splash of oil and herbs and in the oven for 40 minutes or so. Scrum!!

Baked salmon with new potatoes - M&S do a lush lemon and garlic marinade, smother a few salmon fillets and wrap them in a foil parcel. Oven for 20 minutes and YUM. I often to leeks in white sauce with it or it can be a bit dry

Roast chicken - Nothing else needs to be said!

I like to do a slow cooker meal once a fortnight (atleast), check out my pork recipe. DIVINE.

Joe likes to cook once a week too and his speciality is spaghetti brocolli bake. I'm not normally a "no meat" kinda girl but its delicious and i will put the recipe up in the next week!

Hope this has helped someone plan a few meals and please do comment if you liked!!
