MPM: 16th February 2015

Mmmm, you know how sometimes you look at your meal plan and you just want to eat all those gorgeous sounding dinners in one go?  It's one of those weeks!  Just writing this post is making my mouth water a little bit.

We're not planning to be out and neither are we planning on any freezer diving so it is going to be slightly more labour intensive than has been the norm in recent times.  But the sad truth is, I rather look forward to my hour or so in the kitchen at the end of the day, pottering around with the radio burbling in the background.

Oh, and don't forget people - Shrove Tuesday this week which means it is practically obligatory to have PANCAKES!!

And on with the meal plan...

A Madhur Jaffrey creamy, tomatoey, beautifully spiced prawn curry
As above - pancakes
Pork chop with gnocchi in a mustard sauce
Sausage and parsnip risotto
Roast chicken with appropriate trimmings

More meal planning fun over at Mrs M's.


  1. Now I really want pancakes too. Wonder if I can factor them in to my week. I can't really justify flour, fat and the sugary toppings I love though so it may have to be next year.

    Have a scrummy week. Lxx

    1. Mmmm, the pancake batter itself isn't too bad, as I make it with skimmed milk and minimal fat - but, as you say, the toppings then ratchet the cals/points/syns up. Still, I'm justifying it to myself with the thought that it is only once a year....!

  2. Spiced prawn curry sounds so good! Enjoy! :-)
