MPM: 26th January 2015

It's that time of the week again when we cast our minds over what we hope to be scoffing and quaffing in the coming days.  Hurrah!  It's a quiet week for us - January, in general has been a sleepy, torpid kind of month, but since I'm a sleepy, torpid kind of person you won't find me complaining.

This week is a wee bit meat heavy - I must make an effort to bring more veggie based meals into the rotation.  The excuse, as ever, is that we are continuing to freezer dive and you will be pleased to hear that we are actually reaching a point now where defrosting the bugger is becoming a possibility.

Meal plan:

Haggis with neeps, tatties and onion gravy (we were supposed to have this last night to celebrate Burns' night but it got bumped)
Oxtail with rioja and chorizo
Spaghetti carbonara
Soup night
Fish and chips (at D's plaintive request)
Chilli con carne
A Sunday roast of some sort

More meal planning fun over at Mrs M's.


  1. That Oxtail sounds amazing! I absolutely love oxtail and they do some great oxtail stews here in Spain but I've never braved making it myself, will have to give your recipe a go

  2. I can honestly say I have never had Haggis before, what are neeps? I love chilli, sounds like a good plan :)

  3. Oooh I love the sound of Oxtail with Rioja and Chorizo, so many flavours that I love! We had our haggis, neeps and tatties last Friday :-) x #mealplanningmonday

  4. Ooh enjoy your meal tonight! I don't even know what oxtail is, but anything with chorizo is pretty much a winner :) have a great week xx

  5. The Oxtail sounds fantastic as does everything else on your meal plan....Yum!

  6. I totally forgot to buy haggis last week so we missed out but the kids had it for school lunch today and at after school club! Yum x
