What We Are Eating This Week (W/C 19/05)

Some weeks the meal plan comes really easy and other times it takes me a while to work out what we are going to eat based on what we have in the freezer and the store cupboard and this week it was so easy that I'm just waiting for something to go wrong! I have my fingers crossed though so everything should be okay...

Saturday - Leftovers Night

We are having a McDonalds with my Sister and her family and my Mum at lunchtime so for supper we will make do with what is in the fridge. I am thinking that it will be something like sandwiches or if the Children want something warm beans on toast. If we are feeling very adventurous there are some leftovers in the freezer from the last couple of weeks that we can sample too.

Sunday - Roast Chicken with Trimmings

I know boring. Roast Chicken (again) and Roast Potatoes (again) and Veggies. The thing is my family love a Roast and Chicken is the cheapest at the moment. Plus it's so simple to make that I could make it whilst I'm asleep. Luckily I don't make it when I'm asleep I make it when I'm listening to the radio and I love a bit of EP on Sunday and Johnnie Walker too.

Monday - Haddock Stir Fry with Rice Noodles

It's funny since I went to the Good Food Show (and won the Masterchef Invention test!) and being part of the Fish Is The Dish campaign I've been more adventurous with what I am cooking and in my attempts to cook too. I would never have cooked a fish stir fry before, but I thought that a Haddock Stir Fry with some Prawns with be a good start to the week.

Tuesday - Pork with Apple Sauce

Daddy loves to grill Pork Steaks before topping with Apple Sauce and Cheese and then we serve it with Mash and some Veg. As I'm trying to keep my calorie count down I won't have the Cheese on my pork and I'll just have a small amount of Apple Sauce too.

Wednesday - Lasagne

We haven't had Lasagne for a bit and it's something that everyone loves and I already have all the ingredients for too. BB and I will make it in the afternoon and then put it in to cook so that it is ready in time for when Daddy gets home from work. This is a great meal to double up on, but I don't have enough mince in the freezer so I won't be making one for us and one for a later date this week.


Thursday - Blueberry Cheesecake

Thursday night is movie and PJ's night. We get into our PJ's almost as soon as we get home from the afternoon School Run and we slob about. The Children are allowed a piece of Chocolate as an afternoon snack and then we eat dinner at the table together before watching a film together. I thought that this week we would watch The Smurfs in 3D and as Daddy is home this week, dinner will be a simple Pizza so we can all look forward to Blueberry Cheesecake for pudding!

Friday - Hot Dogs

Friday night food should be special and comforting and the perfect set up to a family weekend. So this week we are having Hot Dogs in Wraps. It's the first time that I've made gluten free flour wraps so just in case they are terrible I will have some from the shop on standby! I used to make Breakfast wraps and I miss those so I will add Mushrooms and an egg to mine but I think that everyone else will just go with onions and ketchup.
