Meal Planning Monday 13.02.2012


I have to admit that we haven’t actually done a meal plan for this week. It’s half term (hubby’s off for a week and I’ve got 3 days annual leave) and as we haven’t got much planned we’re kind of taking the week as it comes. We’ve got the essentials in like milk and bread and we still have fruit and yoghurt in supply from last week. We do have a freezer full of food but not necessarily food that goes together. We have things like Warburtons square wraps, fish fingers, frozen veg and frozen fruit for smoothies along with the odd 100g of pork mince and a couple of full fat sausages.

For the first time ever we have taken advantage of the Marks and Spencer’s Dine in for 2 for £20 offer for Valentines night. We’ve treated ourselves to the 3 course meal as it’s a good selection of food we wouldn’t normally eat and cheaper than going to an overpriced restaurant where we don’t feel comfortable. We’ve chosen  Gastropub Camembert With Chutney for starters, The Cook Menu Rump Steak with Peppercorn Sauce, Fresh Chips and Green Pea, Bean and Vegetable Layer for our main (we added the veg outside of the offer) and we have 2 Chocolate Melting Middle puddings for dessert. Also included in the offer is a bottle of Prestige Rosado Cava and a small box of chocolates. Sounds good doesn’t it? (Please note this isn’t a sponsored post!)

Depsite the lack of content in the cupboards my ideas for meals this week include:

– Sweet and sour chicken with rice
– Oven baked fish and chips with mushy peas
– Ready meal from freezer with additional vegetables (I’ve got a WW Chicken Casserole & hubby has a Tesco Sunday Roast special)
– Chilli meatballs and rice
– Turkey, pepper and pasta bake (WW recipe)

Breakfasts will be Alpen Porridge and fruit or 30g granola with yoghurt and fruit.
Lunches will include ham salad pittas, Zero Propoint vegetable soup or vegetable risotto.

For more interesting meal plans head on over to Mrs M’s blog as our meal plans are quite boring this week. Normal service will resume next week as we’re back to normal and back to work! Hoorah! {sig}
