So, last week, did not go to plan at all! Sunday evening I was struck down by the bug and ended up being off work until Thursday. I had absolutely no appetite so needless to say the meal plan went out of the window! Thankfully we are all better now and starting afresh with a new weeks meal plan.
Last week our shopping was done between Riverford organic deliveries and Asda. We ordered a bumper veg box and a fruit box from Riverford and ordered everyday essentials, such as milk, bread, yogurts from Asda. We are hoping that having the delicious organic veg boxes will encourage us to try more vegetable based meals and having vegetables that we may not always think of buying. I have planned this weeks meals around the vegetables that came and I have to say, I am really looking forward to our dinners this week!
This is what we will be enjoying this week...
Monday - Beetroot and Goats Cheese Risotto
We have seemed to have accumulated a lot of beetroot over the last couple of weeks and a poorly week last week meant that after our veg delivery we got even more. To start the week I will be roasting some beetroot and using it to make a bakes risotto and topping with creamy goats cheese.
Tuesday - Chicken, Kale and Mushroom Pasta
We also got some lovely kale and portabello mushrooms so I will be pairing these with some chicken and using some quark to make a creamy, guilt free sauce.
Wednesday - Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup
You cannot beat a good bowl of comforting soup so I will be making a creamy bowl of goodness using butternut squash and sweet potatoes. I will be serving the soup with some crispy fried bacon and some lovely bread.
Thursday - Fish Pie
Thursday's have become busy as the twins now go for swimming lessons after school so to make life easier I am planning to cook the fish pie sauce on Wednesday so that when we get home all I have to do is make some mash.
Friday - Treat
As always we will have a treat on Friday.
As for Saturday and Sunday I am not 100% sure what we will have. On Saturday it'll be a meal that we can place in the middle of the table and everyone can dig in and Sunday will be a roast.
What have you got planned for the week. How do you manage meals when the children have after school activities?
