Meal Planning Monday 24th February


Ok, I know it’s not Monday! I had planned to blog this yesterday but I was busy running around getting organised for my son’s Birthday today..then it was home from school, dinner, homework, baths and The Walking Dead. Everything in our house stops for The Walking Dead! I love it.

So this is my attempt at some sort of a menu plan, lately I’ve been been finding myself in a recurring situation… scouring the Co-op at 4.30pm wondering what on earth to make for dinner. This often leads to me picking not-so-healthy choices, like chilled pizzas or *embarrassed to admit* takeaway. That’s fine on the weekend when you aren’t in the mood to cook, but certainly not ideal on a week night. We simply can not afford to keep going on like this. And since I own well over 100 cookbooks and countless food magazines, I really have no excuse for my laziness. I’ve lost my cooking mojo lately and I need to get it back!

So in an attempt to clear out my storecupboard and use up half packets,here is my first weekly menu plan!

We are waiting for the Birthday boy to decide what he would like! He can’t make his mind up.

Beef Rendang, rice & flatbreads

Creamy chicken with Orzo

I work on a Friday evening so it always has to be something quick and easy. I’m thinking sausages, mash & onion gravy.

Not quite sure what’s happening Saturday yet, Birthday boy might be having a sleepover so I may do home made pizza.

Roast chicken Dinner

Nigella’s brownie bowls with ice cream. It will be a perfect excuse to use my new Wilton pudding bowl tin, I bought it in TK Maxx for only £4! Bargain!

    1. I’m going to give it my best shot and see how I get on, I’m not happy with the way I’ve been eating rubbish food lately – I need to get back on track. I really miss proper cooking! Hopefully a few food blog posts will come out of this 🙂


  1. Good luck with the meal planning – I’ve been doing it for a year now, and find it works best if you have a pretty good idea of what you are doing but allow yourself some flexibility so you don’t get upset if you stray off-plan. If you try to be too rigid it ends up like being on a diet – one unplanned mouthful and you say “**** this, I’m going to eat anything I want to!”
