Meal Planning

I’m back on budget (way under, actually!) for this week’s menu – it’s amazing how much of a difference it makes when you do something as simple as check what meats are on special at the supermarket before planning your meals.

Roasted vegetable and feta tartSunday: Roast chicken with all the trimmings – Tiny ate all his chicken and a few veges, Pickle ate all his roasted vegetables and half of mine, so it was a mixed success, as always

Monday: Lasagne – my guaranteed meal for getting a load of vegetables into my boys. Tiny loves lasagne, and Pickle likes the pasta, but like many toddlers, is going through an anti-meat phase

Tuesday: teriyaki beef stir-fry with hokkien noodles

Wednesday: Butter chicken (my only Chelsea Winter recipe this week – amazing!)

Thursday: Spaghetti carbonara

Friday: Vegetable soup with garlic bread

Last week’s meals were mostly successful; the roasted vege tart was a bit bland, and due to running out of gas, I had to oven cook the steak for the sarnies (but the paprika mayo was very tasty)…the meal of the week, however, was the mushroom soup which was ah-maaaaaaazing. The recipe was supposed to serve 3-4, but Tall and I hoovered it down and basically licked our bowls clean, for a Friday date-night-in dinner.
