Weekly Meal Plan - Week Commencing 23rd May 2016

This weeks meal plan is going to be a shorter one as at the end of the week it is holiday time! Therefore, this week, I only have four meals to plan. This weeks dinners will be based on what we have got in the fridge and what needs using up before we go.

Last weeks meal plan did not go to plan. Life took over and I took the easy route of trying some handmade ready meals that I had been sent to try and wanting an easy tea on Friday. So the least said about last weeks plan, the better!

This week I will need organisation and will stick to my meal plan. Before we go away it is always manic. Getting everything ready, leaving posts scheduled and the general run up to going is always a stressful time for me. I always get very anxious and worry about getting everything done but as soon as we get in the car and leave I am fine. 

This is what we will be enjoying this week...

Week Commencing 23rd May 2016

Monday - Beetroot Red Pasta

When the hubby was shopping on Friday he found so delicious looking red pasta which has been coloured using beetroot juice and red wine. On Monday I am going to serve it tossed in olive oil, garlic and Parmesan. Plain and simple!

Tuesday - Courgetti Bolognese

This is a recipe from Good + Simple by Hemsley Hemsley. We saw them make it on their Ch4 programme and immediately wanted it!

Wednesday - Pork Steaks with Chutney and Cheese

The pork steaks will be served with whatever vegetables need using!

Thursday - Frittata and Jacket Potatoes

To use up some eggs before we go I will be making a frittata on Thursday and will add any thing that needs using up.

Then it is holiday time! I will be meal planning to a certain extent while we are away as we will be in a self catering holiday cottage, meals will still need to be cooked!

I hope you have a good week x

As always I am sharing with At Home with Mrs M Meal Planning Monday.
