What’s the saying about best laid plans? I had high hopes of getting lots of work done, catching up with blog posts that needed to be written with photographs edited, the works last night as my hubby had gone to his mates birthday bash and Olly had gone to bed. I smelt gas and knew something wasn’t right. I inspected the cooker and could hear hissing coming from somewhere but all the dials were turned off. I immediately shut down the main gas supply, opened all the windows and rang National Grid who sent out a very helpful man at 10pm last night to help a damsel in distress. I’ve got to say it was quite frightening as I could hear the gas hissing, smell gas quite strongly and then had visions of my house blowing up as I turned on the light. Really frightening especially as Olly was fast asleep upstairs.
Thankfully, the engineer isolated the gas supply making it safe but deemed the cooker unsafe as the gas was leaking from somewhere on the hob. So now we are cooker-less until Thursday as we’ve had to buy a new cooker (hurrah to a new cooker) Luckily we have plenty of ways to make meals this week, they’re just not meals we had planned for. We’ve got a slow cooker, soup maker, toaster, Actifry, George Foreman grill and a microwave to make full use of.
With that in mind, here’s what we are planning to eat this week..
- Slow cooker jacket potatoes with baked beans / cheese / tuna mayonnaise
- Gammon steaks with Actifry chips and salad
- Soup; Scotch Broth and Leek and Potato Soup for me (guess who has the dentist again!!)
- SW chicken kievs with salad and savoury rice
- Grilled chicken, mushroom and pepper skewers with salad (and Actifry chips for the males)
We’ve also got a review dinner coming up at Brewers Fayre later in the week so that’s come at a useful time for us.
Lunches this week will be soups and salads for me (no boiled eggs though which is a shame – love my boiled eggs) with sandwiches for hubby and Olly gets fab lunches at his Grandparents house.
Breakfasts will be either overnight oats with fruit or yogurt and fruit with some sort of healthy extra possibly post grape nuts or weetabix.
I’m hoping for a good week on the scales this week, a girls got to try eh! As usual I’ll be sharing all my meals over on instagram for inspiration for others on the SW plan. I find it so interesting to see what other folk eat. I’m also a bit nosey! What are you eating this week?
I’m linking up with Mrs M’s Meal Planning Monday with Meal Planning Sunday.
