Meal Planning Monday w/b 17th November 2014


mpm 27.10.14

This week’s Meal Planning Monday was cobbled together on quite a tight budget. It’s the end of our month and there’s four whole days until payday. We’ve managed to raid the freezer, the cupboards and put several supermarket coupons to good use and come up with a Slimming World friendly meal plan for the week ahead.

This week there’s a few things happening in the evenings; hubby is at darts on Monday, I’ve been asked to help at weigh in at my Slimming group and i’m off to a blogging event in Birmingham on Wednesday evening. Fast forward to Friday and we’re off to our local Prezzo Restaurant to check out their Christmas menu. Not sure how friendly the meal will be on the diet but I’ll behave myself and try and choose wisely.

This is what we’re eating this week;

Slow Cooker Jacket Potatoes – toppings to be decided 
Sausage, mash and seasonal vegetables 
Chilli con carne 
Turkey burgers with salsa and a salad 
Pizza topped chicken, oven roasted vegetables and wedges 

I really want a decent loss this week so I can get on my way to bagging that 3 stone loss award by Christmas. I’ve got six weigh ins until Christmas and although there’s a couple of Christmas meals, a party and a wedding reception in there I’m hoping to achieve it.

For lunches this week, I’ll be having soup or my usual chicken salads. Hubby bought a bargain bag of Potato and Leek soup mix from the supermarket so I’m cooking that up in the hope it’ll be nicer than my own soups that I’ve been making of late.

What are you eating this week? I’d love to hear what you’ve got planned.

    Have you tried celeriac soup? It’s really easy to make and manages to taste creamy and rich while still being low PPs/0 syns. We’ve always made it with one celeriac, a couple of white potatoes, an onion, plenty of salt & pepper and stock to cover. Boil it up and whizz! We always serve ours with a dollop of creme fraiche and a tsp of green pesto but that’s not compulsory!
