Meal Planning Monday 06.02.2012

We may have slipped up a bit with last week’s meals. You know sometimes when you get home from a long day at work and you just can’t be bothered to cook / or what you had planned to cook just doesn’t cut it? Yep, we had a couple of those this week! Hubby really wanted Chinese Takeaway on Thursday night and who am I to argue? I had the points for a takeaway so chose wisely and had a very delicious Chicken Chow Mein. It must have been at least 2 years since I’ve had one of those and it was worth every single point.

This week we’ve got the following meals lined up:

Low fat cumberland sausages with spring onion mash
Cod with lemon & dill herb dressing with potatoes and seasonal veg
Pork chops with stilton, seasonal veg and potatoes (WW recipe in this months magazine)
Oven baked fish and chips with mushy peas (and pickled onions*) *optional
Spaghetti bolognese

For lunches this week, I’m having WW wraps with ham and lettuce or pasta salads with low fat coleslaw. I’m really looking forward to getting back into my usual work routine and using the microwave so I can take in some yummy soup to fill me up for longer.

Breakfasts this week will be the ever faithful 30g granola with a WW yoghurt with additional fruit. Absolutely loving kiwi at the moment  (my nephew who’s 3 said it looked like seaweed so wasn’t going to try it!) and tinned mandarins. Yummy!

I’ve discovered this lovely lady’s blog recently and subscribed to her posts. Every time Sarah blogs with a recipe I’m literally drooling with the thought of eating her meals. They all sound amazing and they’re healthy too! What a winner eh?

    I love your menus – they are always really interesting! The veggie soup looks great, unfortunately I sickened myself off soup when I had my teeth problems but hopefully the desire will come back again before the weather warms up!
