Meal Planning Monday (13th August 2012)

So after writing my lovely meal plan last week I had to throw it out the window as the babe took sick. I found it just too hard to do much interesting or new cooking with a teeny cling-on who was not eating and therefore breastfeeding on and off all day long. Poor little man. He is on the mend now so hopefully this week will go a little smoother.

Thank heavens for freezer food! I do now need to do some batch cooking to replace what we ate but after all, that's what it is there for...

Some of the meals from last week I have just transferred onto this week's plan. I have also been ultra efficient and written down what veg we have to use up in the next couple of days so I can plan properly. Amazing for a completely disorganised woman!

Monday
Lunch: Vegetable soup & sandwiches
Dinner: 
Vegetable, potato & lentil stew with soft polenta

Tuesday
Lunch: Aubergine & white bean puree toasted sandwiches (never got round to these last week)
Dinner:  Roasted veg, bulgar wheat risotto & nutty greens 

Wednesday
Lunch: Avocado pesto & new potato pasta (yes, it was gorgeous and yes, you don't need cheese in pesto!)
Dinner: Vegetable gratin, quinoa salad & green salad

Thursday
Lunch: Vegetable soup & sandwiches 
Dinner: Lentil herders pie, baked beans & potatoes

Friday
Lunch: Sloppy Joes
Dinner:  Lentil herders pie, baked beans & potatoes (yes, we did just have that but Fridays are mad)

Saturday
Lunch: Visitors coming and bringing food...how well behaved is that?
Dinner: Depends on what food visitors bring...

Sunday
Lunch: 
Calzone (not entirely sure how or what flavour but there will be mushrooms and peppers and something clever with tofutti instead of cheese...) with salad
Dinner: Lots of veg (depends on what's left)

Snacks & puddings
Tinned, fresh and dried fruit, smoothie, crackers or rice cakes & nut butter or hummus or marmite, whole nuts, yoghurt, muffins.

  1. Avocado Pesto - that's a revelation! Going to try that one very soon. Your list has made me feel a tad hungry (to say the least!!)
