After a fantastic weekend celebrating my lovely friend Emily’s forthcoming nuptials, my stomach is feeling a little delicate as I type this. I literally had three alcoholic drinks including a very moreish chocolate cocktail and some rich food (garlic pizza and a burrito smothered in cheese) at Planet Hollywood but my stomach isn’t used to it and it’s playing up today. Unfortunately for my husband, meal planning wasn’t at the forefront of my mind as he went out shopping for this weeks meals so we’re having a week full of yummy but uncomplicated meals that are enjoyed by all the family.
This week we’ll be enjoying;
Chicken and Vegetable Skewers with savoury rice and salad
SW Sweet and Sour Chicken
Sausage, mash and onion gravy (SW sausages for me / full fat ones for the boys)
Slow Cooker Campfire stew, swede mash and vegetables
Slow Cooker Jacket Potatoes and a choice of toppings (Baked Beans for me)
For breakfasts, I’ll be taking my usual selection of meals; Oat So Simple Multi Grain Porridge with fruit or Mullerlight Yoghurt with fruit and 30g All Bran or 2 weetabix with milk and water with fruit. I don’t tend to eat bread much anymore as it doesn’t fill me up for breakfast. The only way it does fill me up is with baked beans and mushrooms but I can’t have that before work as I don’t (and won’t) get up early enough to make and eat it.
For lunch, I’ll be having chunky ham and bean soup with crustless quiche and my husband’s legendary chicken salads with cous cous and pickles. I tend to have a filling lunch to stop me picking or being tempted by biscuits at work. It’s worked over the last few months so I’m sticking with it.
Little Mr will be eating breakfast and lunch at his Grandparents house this week so we don’t need to worry about his food too much. We send him with a lunchbox with some fruit (mainly strawberries and blueberries or a fruit pouch) a yoghurt and some crisps but his Grandparents are good and feed him well.
