Meal Planning Monday 26.09.2011


I’ve really been enjoying planning our meals for the past few weeks, it’s now a regular routine that on a Sunday we plan what meals we would like throughout the week and then hubby goes off shopping getting all the ingredients in ready for the week ahead. It’s a bit like hunter gatherer with a debit card! So here’s our week ahead in meals..

Monday: Toad in the hole (WW recipe from Hearty Home Cookbook)
Tuesday: Post weigh in meal of Turkey & Apple Burgers (WW recipe from Weekday cookbook)
Wednesday: Chorizo Lasagne
Thursday: Oven baked fish in bubbly batter, oven chips and mushy peas
Friday: Slow cooker Chicken Curry using a new Schwartz packet mix recipe
Saturday: Steak and Guinness Pie (WW recipe from last weeks ‘Your Week’ booklet)

We do use a lot of WW recipes but they are really tasty, so varied and they help me to budget my daily points allowance effectively. They really help me to stay on track with my diet and I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything. By the way, this post isn’t sponsored by WW, I’m just pleased that their recipes are so easy to use and hubby and I like them, enjoy preparing and eating them.

I’ve been baking a lot of Banana bread lately too and it is delicious. The loaf is divided into 12 slices and it works out at 4 Propoints per slice which is fab when you’re craving cake because it’s a decent sized portion so you don’t feel like you’re depriving yourself!

What are you eating this week? I’d love to hear from you and don’t forget to check out the other meal ideas on Mrs M’s blog {sig}

    Loving the sound of the chorizo lasagne! I also like the sound of the slow cooker chicken – we have put one on our wedding list so I will be searching for recipes!
