Weekly Meal Plan - #MealPlanningMonday Week 6 2017

Hello and welcome to week 6 of #MealPlanningMonday I hope you all had a good week and are ready for another delicious week.

Last week our house was full of bugs. On Tuesday Little T got sent home after being sick. Thankfully the sickness did not last long, but he was still poorly for the week with cold and raging temperature. Little I must have an immune system made of steel, bless her, apart from a bit of a snotty nose she is well. But now the rest of us are feeling it. I am not too bad, I just feel completely washed out so homemade broth has been just about all I have eaten. Isn't it amazing how a good homemade soup or broth can fill you with comfort!

Last weeks meal plan was more or less followed. The lasagne turned into a chicken pasta bake made in the Pressure King Pro and I was not up to cooking the sausage casserole on Saturday. This week the Pressure King Pro has become my go to piece of equipment. Last week I shared my review but this week it has proven to be invaluable. I was able to sneak off while Little T was sleeping, prepare the food, put it in the PKP and leave it to do all the hard work for me.

I managed to get to my Slimming World class but went in the evening instead of the regular morning session. I was a bit disappointed to have only lost 1lbs but looking back I am happy, at the end of the day it was another loss.

Now onto this weeks meal plan. This is what we will be enjoying this week...

Weekly Meal Plan - Week 6 2017

Monday - Stew and Dumplings

This was a meal that I had planned a couple of weeks ago and the hubby keeps reminding me that I have not made dumplings in a long time. So I will start the week with this comforting meal!

Tuesday - Sweetcorn and Smoked Fish Soup

This is a recipe that I found in Gill Meller's Gather. It looks like a bowl of warming goodness and a meal that I am really looking forward to making.

Wednesday - £2 Day

On Wednesday I will be feeding the family for £2 per head. This is a fundraising campaign with Voucherbox and Zamcog. Zamcog educates and cares for some of the most vulnerable children in Zambia. I will be sharing throughout the day what we are eating and how I am managing so keep an eye out!

Thursday - SW Sausage Casserole

As I did not make this meal last week we will have it on Thursday.

Friday - Fish Pie

We all love a good fish pie and I am planning to top this weeks pie with a celeriac mash.

Saturday - Pulled Pork

I am going to try making pulled pork in the Pressure King Pro. I will be serving it with baked chips and salad.

  1. I love fish pie - sadly no one else in my family shares my love of it, so I always make one for me! Chicken stew and dumplings sounds perfect for a coldish day like today, and good luck on Wednesday x

    1. I love fish pie too! Wednesday went better than I expected and has certainly made me realise how much we spend a week x

  2. Fish pie is always a favourite here I will look out for what you eat on Wednesday. Have a great week #mealplanningmonday

    1. You cannot beat a good fish pie! My post about Wednesday will be live later today and I am really pleased with how we managed x

  3. Ooh I haven't had a fish pie or a sausage casserole for a while, but I think I might have to add them to a menu plan very soon ! I made chicken stew with dumplings last week too ! Glad to hear you're all on the mend now - too many bugs going round at the moment :(

    1. There are so many bugs! I love how meal planning gives us all ideas, I am going to be looking into the crepes that you mentioned this week x

  4. Oh no! I hope you all feel better soon!
    Ahh! We are having fish pie tonight. It's ages since we've had it.
    Good luck with your £2 day. That sounds like an interesting challenge x

    1. Thank you Kim, the bugs have struck me down again! I'll be glad when they've gone. We really enjoyed the £2 challenge and found it raised awareness in the children too x

  5. hope you're soon better and that you enjoy the plan. The £2 challenge sounds interesting! Have a great week x

    1. Thank you, getting fed up of this cold now. The £2 challenge was a real eye opener, especially for the children x
