Meal Planning Monday - 18th March 2013


Interesting week. Last Thursday saw D and I undergo (is that the right word? Sounds a bit negative...) our first trip to Relate. Communal navel gazing a go-go. Because our lines of communication have been pretty open I don't think there are too many surprises in store but there are still difficult conversations to be had and to me it makes sense to have them in a safe environment.

Then today I had an appointment for some individual head shrinking. You know, so I can learn how to cope with life's traumas without recourse to cheese.

There has been lots of talking. And shredding of tissues. And I'm still not in a particularly cook-ey place. But I have a meal plan for the coming week - ok, most are assembly jobs, but that's alright.

• Tonight was a chicken mini roast with roast potatoes (oh, I love roast potatoes) and oodles of greens.

• Tomorrow - omelette. With spiced potato wedges ( = middle class for chips).

• Wednesday - Caesar salad (more veg, you see) topped with a griddled tuna steak.

• Thursday - I think I might be out so quick and easy and fab - fish finger sandwich.

• Weekend: not finalised, but it's looking like Kashmiri curry with pilau rice, a lunch out at Saltaire Mills and lamb shank in mint gravy with mash.

More meal plans over at Mrs M's.


  1. Ooooh, how I love a Caesar salad. Still a bit chilly for me to fully embrace the leaf though.

    Good luck on navel gazing/shrinkage; everyone I know who's tried it has nothing but good things to say. Hope it works out for you.


    1. Thank you - I am sure it will (be helpful). And if my head actually shrinks a bit that would be good too, I always have trouble finding hats to fit :-)

      On the salad side - I've been craving raw vegetables so am braving the salad anyway despite the fact that it is SNOWING AGAIN. But I'll probably have a hot chocolate afterwards...

  2. You're a lovely girl. That's all xxxx

    1. Thank you :-) Right back at you.

  3. I've done some talky therapy in my time and by and large got something out of it. I hope you do too.

    Oh, and, fish finger sarnies.....drool.....

  4. Good luck with your... journey? I hope it takes you to a good place.

    Er, huge YUM to the fish finger sandwiches, my kids would have those all the time if I let them, they're an occasional Saturday lunch for us!
