Hello and welcome to week 12 of #mealplanningmonday
Last week we did well and had 4 out of the 6 meals that I had planned. On Tuesday I received a lovely delivery of food from Dolmio so on Tuesday we did not have the meal that I had planned. We had a delicious bolognese. I will be writing all about the meal and telling you about Dolmio later in the week. Saturday’s meal did not go as planned as on Tuesday we were told that J was ready to do his next taekwondo grading and was invited to take part in a three hour training session. So Saturday was all about taekwondo. Instead of the fritters we had quick and easy homemade burgers when I got home.
When I went to get weighed at Slimming World last Friday I really was not sure what to expect. Over the week I increased my exercise. I had a great two and a half hour session at the gym on Monday and even went on a 12k bike ride on Wednesday so my focus had been on my fitness as opposed to my food. But I was delighted when I got on the scales and found that I had in fact lost another 3lbs! I am now only 10.5lbs away from my target!
A couple of years ago I used to have some lovely fresh vegetables delivered each week. Unfortunately they had to stop coming to the village as I was the only customer. But last week, after more people asked them to deliver to the village, they returned! So from now on I will be getting boxes delivered. What I always enjoyed about getting the boxes delivered was the variety of vegetables that I received. When I receive the boxes it is easier to plan around the vegetables that arrive as opposed to planning before shopping. But we will be having a lot of vegetables in our meals which is great!
This is what we will be enjoying this week…
Weekly Meal Plan - Week 12 2017
Monday - Butternut Squash and Lentil Stew
This was one of the meals that did not get made last week so we will have it on Monday.
Tuesday - Roast Pork
While looking through the freezer I found a joint of pork. I will roast the pork on Tuesday and serve it with delicious fresh vegetables.
Wednesday - Chilli Pie
On Wednesday I am going to make a chilli con carne using the recipe mix from Schwartz. This is another one of their gluten free sachets. Instead of serving it with rice I will be transforming it into a chilli con carne cottage pie.
Thursday - SW KFC Chicken
When I made this a few weeks ago it was a huge success so it has to be made again. The coating is made using polenta and paprika. I will be serving it with baked chips and salad.
Friday - Date Night
At the moment I am not too sure what we will have but it will be either a SW meal for me and a ready meal for the hubby or a treat of cheese, bread and dips.
Saturday - Fajitas
This is something that we have not had in a long time but is always a favourite with everyone.
That is another week done!
