Meal Planning Monday




Even though I've been absent from Meal Planning Monday for two weeks I've been keeping up with the planning but I just haven't had the time to put it on the blog. There's been loads to do on the house (we've been extending the kitchen and giving the whole of the back of the house an overhaul) but now that Toddler is safely at pre-school and Baby is happy on the playmat I can get on with my entry for this week...Except that this week I haven't done my usual look through my cookbooks and come up with my plan from them. I sort of formulated a plan as I walked up and down the aisles of the supermarket yesterday. So here goes...

Monday: Spaghetti Bolognese (I bought some unusual and multicoloured pasta shapes so hopefully Toddler will think that's great.)

Tuesday: Casserole

Wednesday: Butcher bought burgers, homemade chips and beans

Thursday: Something with chicken-I'm at a loss as I type-Any ideas gratefully received!

Friday: Lemon Sole parcels

Saturday: Whatever my mother-in-law serves up for my youngest sister-in-law's 18th

Sunday: Rotisserie chicken, new potatoes and salad

So that's it. I wonder what Saturday will bring?

  1. I've seen Sticky Chicken earlier in the meal plans at Mrs M which sounds nice. Or I'm doing butter chicken on Saturday.

  2. The butcher bought burgers will be lovely! Hmmmm chicken recipes. As BNM says the sticky chicken sounds lovely. I also like chicken dhansak - http://bigeejit.blogspot.com/2011/03/chicken-dhansak.html or slow cooker cashew chicken - http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2011/10/slow-cooker-cashew-chicken.html.

    Hope you get some inspiration!

  3. Maybe use the chicken for fajitas or try hunters chicken (wrapped in cheese and bacon with bbq sauce) - they are our favs!

    The sole parcels sound fab. Hope the party is fun for you guys :)

    1. Cheese, bacon and bbq sauce-How have I not heard of this before!?! Sounds wonderful. Thanks for the ideas.

  4. My simple chicken dish is to just throw the chicken, whatever veg I have in, some chopped chorizo and a tin of tomatoes in a casserole dish, top with grated cheese and in the oven for about 30 mins.
    Loving the sound of lemon sole parcels, I really need to start including more fish.
