Weekly Meal Plan - #MealPlanningMonday

Monday is here again as it my weekly meal plan and #MealPlanningMonday!

Last week flew by in a haze of being mums taxi, work and house jobs. J has recently started going to the RAF Air Cadets so Monday and Wednesday evenings fly by taxiing him to and from the venue. Come Thursday I am shattered. Last week we also had the twinnies parents evening at school. We were so proud to hear that they are both doing so well at school. Knowing that all three of the children are happy and doing well really does make all of the tired evenings worth it. We can look at them and know that we are doing something right!

On the blog last week I shared a delicious soup that I made after an evening trip to Tesco on my way home from work. As it was later in the day they had got quite a few reduced vegetables. But it was the vibrant colours from the tomatoes and peppers that caught my eye plus I knew that they would make a delicious soup!

My Roasted Tomato, Pepper and Lentil Soup was perfect for some warming lunches at work and is definitely a soup I will be making more of. 

In my meal plan last week I mentioned a spiced shepherd's pie that I was hoping would be a success. I am delighted to say that it was. Even the hubby tweeted about it! Needless to say I will be blogging about it and sharing the recipe later in the week, but here is a sneak peek of what to expect.

Now on to this weeks meal plan. This is what we will be having this week...

Week Commencing 13th November 2017

Monday - Thai Green Curry

I would love to say that I am making my own but now that I am doing the cadet run for J I do not have time. After I have taken him the hubby and I will be having a lovely Charlie Bigham's treat.

Tuesday - Sweet potato and feta pie

When I ordering my shopping last week there was a lovely Higgidy pie reduced so in the basket it went! We haven't tried the sweet potato and feta pie before so I am looking forward to it. I will be serving it with jacket potatoes and green veg.

Wednesday - Chicken

As Wednesday is another busy evening driving we will be having an easy meal that can be left in the oven. I have got some chicken breasts in the freezer with tomatoes and an Italian dressing. We will probably have them served on pasta.

Thursday - Magic Dust Chilli

I have got a yummy giveaway coming up with Nifty Kitchen and their meat rubs. On Thursday I am planning to use one of the spice mixes in a chilli style dish. Keep your eyes open for your chance to win some spice mixes!

Friday - Treat

After a busy week we will certainly be ready for a treat of some sort.

Saturday - Sausage Casserole

This is always a winner in our house!

That is yet another week done!
