Meal Planning Monday - 1st October 2012

I'm back! Kind of...

This is my first meal planning post for a while, my first in my new home and my first as a singleton. Phew. I'm keeping it extremely simple and with lots of nursery food options on there (see Thursday and Sunday!) to get me back in the swing and to soothe my troubles away - while remaining on track. Where a dish won't freeze particularly well I shall just eat it over two nights. I know - contentious (but frugal).

• Monday and Tuesday - cheese and tomato bread pudding with salad in honey mustard dressing.

• Wednesday - out having a crying on the shoulder session with my lovely friend A. Going straight from work so will have an Innocent veg pot before leaving the office.

• Thursday - fish fingers, mash, peas, carrots and oodles of ketchup.

• Friday - tuna pasta bake using the Homepride sauce that lovely Jenny has recommended previously.

• Saturday - a slow cooker chilli using beef brisket and chorizo, from a Thomasina Miers recipe which can be found here.

• Sunday - back to the nursery for
potato waffles, baked beans and a poached egg. To be taken in front of Downton - if I have a working television before then!

As always, head over to Mrs M's for more meal planning fun.


  1. Glad to see you back :) Thanks for all your encouragements re: the 10K. In answer to your question about my arms, I am afraid it is nothing more than camera angles and the fact I was twisting it round to look at my phone!!!!!!!!! I have no arms strength AT ALL!

  2. Monday/Tuesday's meal sounds SO delicious. I'm on a fasting day so am particularly drooly at the thought.

    Hang in there.


  3. *hugs* sounds like a tough time for you - but you seem like a strong one :)

    The cheese and tomato bread pudding sounds fab! Never thought about a savoury alternative before.

    I hope you get to see Downton! x

  4. I am woefully behind and have not made any plans yet. The chilli sounds really good.

  5. Hope all is well, meal plan looks great
