I know I say this often but I seriously don’t know where last week went. Having said that, I was glad to see the back of it. I didn’t feel well at all and my mood was pretty low. I kept getting migraines and I felt really sick. I don’t know if it was a bug or if my migraines are returning with a vengeance (hopefully not.)
I had planned to do some baking, but I was feeling so rotten I had to sleep when Hamish went down for his morning/afternoon naps. They can vary in length from 20 minutes to 2 hours, so you can never tell how long you’re going to get!
Surprisingly, I actually stuck to the meal plan except for one night when I felt so ill my husband picked up a ready meal for us and pizza for the boys. The highlight of the week was the chicken parmigana from the new Hairy Biker’s book chicken and egg. I didn’t follow the recipe to the letter, but it was really enjoyed by everyone.
So here’s this week’s meal planner…..
Monday – chicken goujons and salad
Tuesday – Busy night with the boys having different things on after school so I’m making a super quick version of tomato and chorizo pasta
Wednesday – cornmeal fried pork chops with smashed potatoes (from the Smitten Kitchen website)
Thursday – Sage and onion chicken and sausage traybake from Nigella. I’ve been making this recipe for years and love it!
Friday – Minced beef canelloni
