Last week saw us ease back in to routine after a splendiferous holiday. It also saw me witness the, ahem, fruits of that holiday on a set of WW meeting scales - not pleasant. Luckily, we had a delicious meal plan in place to make the transition back to strict pointing relatively painless. I say relatively...I have had quite a hungry few days.
This week - well, tomorrow night I'm out at my book group, so will just grab a quick sandwich beforehand, and Wednesday night I'm away for work (staying in a very glamorous hotel just off the M1) - this will leave D to fend for himself (and the cat) and mention has been made of retiring to the local hostelry for beer and a burger. On Friday, he himself is out so I will probably be indulging in some of the M&S Food Hall's finest nibbles. Last time I was let loose in there to get my own tea, I ended up with prawn dim sum and cheesy chips. Happy days. That leaves us only four days to properly meal plan.
Tonight we are having whitebait - I am going to be experimenting with baking them rather than deep frying to see if it provides a similar, addictively crispy effect.
A Thursday night homecoming dinner of mushroom risotto.
Saturday, D is going to be cooking a couple of the mackerel that we caught while up in Scotland. He is hoping to get his hands on some frozen gooseberries to make an accompanying sauce.
And a Sunday roast - chicken, I think, with plenty of leftovers to form the basis for next week's plan.
More meal planning fun over at Mrs M's!
