Meal Planning Monday – 25th January 2015


mpm 3.11.2014

This week we’ve got another busy one ahead. Hubby has quite a few things on in the evenings so we’re planning quick evening meals that don’t take too much time to prepare and cook before he has to head off and leave us to enjoy our usual bedtime routine.

In our house, hubby and I like to eat about 6pm so as soon as we get home from work, whoever is home first will begin cooking. Little Mr usually eats about 5:30pm so we have between 5pm-7pm to get our dinner cooked before it’s time for Little Mr’s bath and bedtime.

Every Tuesday, I go to my local Slimming World group where I help out as a social team member. As group doesn’t finish until 9pm, I don’t eat my dinner until late. Usually hubby will cook my dinner whilst I’m out or we’ll take advantage of the slow cooker throughout the day to save time.

Here’s what’s up on the Shilton household menu planner this week

Speedy chicken and vegetable rice
Campfire stew
Cottage pie
Pasta bolognese
Zesty one pan chicken

There’s lots of chicken on the menu this week. We have quite a bit to use up in the freezer so we’re using that up this week but we do like it with our meals as it’s so versatile and Little Mr will eat it too so that’s a bonus!

I made a very yummy crustless quiche yesterday for lunch which I served with a side salad and pickles. I’m loving that I can just throw the ingredients together and 20 minutes later, a yummy quiche is made! Check out the recipe here if you want to make your own synfree SW friendly crustless quiche.


I’m basically pretending its a really yummy ham and pineapple pizza with proper cheese! I’m yearning after proper pizza at the moment but won’t give in until Little Mr’s birthday treat which is 3 weeks away. Hopefully I’ll be nearer my 3.5 stone loss by then, so I’ll stay focused until then at least!

I’m linking up with Mrs M’s Meal Planning Monday linky so if you want more foodie inspiration, head over and see what everyone else is eating this week. Have a good week everyone!

    I’d love some of your determination, I’m rubbish at sticking to any sort of target, especially where pizza or chocolate’s involved..stick with it! That quiche looks so good, definitely saving that one to try out. Have a great week :) xx
