Mid week meal plan (14 November 2012)

When times get tough....the tough get meal planning. This week's offering is a distraction meal plan, or a distracted meal plan. Probably both.

On Friday evening we had a fire in our flat. Thankfully, I found it and my husband put it out (big time hero) before it got much further than the airing cupboard but it was a horrible night. To be honest, the aftermath isn't working out too nicely either.

So here I am, trying to get back to normal a little and thinking about food. Our meals have been rather slapdash the last few days, to say the least, and the organisation of a plan will do me (and the family) good.

Since I am not really in the mood for fancy pants experimenting with new ideas, it is a conservative easy to execute plan with a strong emphasis on comfort food. Thankfully, I have a stash of chocolate muffins and flapjack, though the flapjack has taken quite a hammering. I will have to bake some broccoli muffins for the babe when I have a moment as he finished the last one today and I fear tomorrow will not go well if he finds the freezer bare...

Comfort food Meal Plan

 Spaghetti Bolognese
(in freezer already, yay!)

Cheat's Veg & lentil or bean Curry
(curry pastes are jalfrezi and biryani which is a new one for us)

Potato and Vegetable Hash
(nothing like a big pile of carbs, veg and baked beans when it's chilly)

Roast Dinner
(didn't have one this Monday as we resorted to takeout)

Mexican Bean & Tomato Macaroni
(an accidental creation from last week which wowed us all)

Hopefully I will be back to normal on Monday with a more inspired plan and a happier tone. I certainly have recipes piling up that I want to share - not the least of which is the Red Bean Patties filled with coriander and coconut chutney which were simply divine

In the meantime, see who else is eating what over at Meal Plan Monday with  At Home with Mrs B.
