Meal Planning Monday (okay...mid-week) 10 December 2012

It's freezing outside, which means its freezing in my kitchen too so I have treated myself to a little fan heater. Sadly the freezer is empty so I need to do some batch cooking but spending more than a few minutes at once in a persistently cold unheated room at this time of year is very unappealing!

My little boy is just emerging from a month long bout of heavy teething and heavier cold which hit his appetite very hard. I am still tempting him back to proper meals instead of constant snacking so this week is all about his favourite meals. At 18 months old, breastmilk is a great extra and fall back for when he's ill, but its not nearly enough without a good big dollop of solids.

So here's my plant based / dairy free / vegan toddler tempting cold weather meal plan.

Spaghetti Bolognese
(red and green lentils, mushrooms, olives and spinach)

Coconutty potato and mushroom curry with cumin dhal and rice

Mexican Bean Macaroni

Lentil, quinoa and root vegetable stew, with potatoes and peas

Slow cooked root vegetable soup and bread

Pizza with mushrooms, onions, beetroot and greens

Date and Orange Flapjack
(great for a boost at breakfast)

Chocolate Beetroot Muffins
(okay so those might be for me...)

For a looksy at what other people are eating this week, head over to At Home with Mrs B or if you are Stateside, go to I'm an Organizing Junkie
