I did do this meal plan on Christmas Day, well Christmas Day Evening really. We decided what we were having whilst playing with my new tablet, but it took me too long to type on the tablet so I had to wait until I had some time to publish the post.
Saturday - Lasagne
We had this last night (it's currently Sunday evening) and I have to say it was one of the best Lasagne's I have made. The benefit was that over the last weeks weeks every time I've said we're going to have it we haven't had it for one reason or another and so I think that it was a delayed gratification thing.
Sunday - Roast chicken
Daddy started this whilst I was at Church, when Tops and I walked in to the house, the smell was so divine. I promise dear Sunday Chicken that I won't ever stop eating you again! As of next Sunday Church is in the afternoon, so we are going to be eating our main meal in the evening on Sundays like every other day. Daddy is going to be cooking them for the next year too as Tops and I won't get home until 5:30ish.
Monday - Kebab
When Daddy and I were dating (or this was possibly when we were engaged I can't really remember now) he had a lot of firsts. His first Chinese meal (I know!), his first night out at a Nightclub (for someone as in to Dance Music as him this surprised me too) and his first Kebab. The story goes that my Mum wanted a kebab and so Daddy and I were despatched to the local kebab shop as he and I were the only ones who hadn't had a drink. Seven kebabs later (three with chilli sauce, all with salad) and three portions of chips all shared between the seven of us (Nanny B, my Mum, my Dad, Kitty, her boyfriend, Me and Daddy) we saw in the New Year and a tradition was born. The tradition being that we try to find an open Kebab shop so we can eat Kebabs on New Years Eve.
Tuesday - Spring Rolls and Rice (and prawn crackers!)
I thought I had written a post explaining how to make Spring Rolls, but apparently I haven't yet. I'm going to make Spring Rolls and I'll do Egg Fried Rice for the Children and I (Daddy can't eat egg) and if Daddy is really lucky instead of making vegetable spring rolls, I'll put some chicken in them or possibly make an additional chicken dish to eat.
Wednesday - Baked Pork Chops in a Creamy Mushroom Sauce
I'm cheating and using a jar sauce (Chicken Tonight) because I plan to be busy with Top Ender and Big Boy during the day as Daddy is back at work and we want to make sure that we make the most of our day together. We are planning on making Top Ender's Birthday cake, some posters and something else which at the moment has escaped me!
Thursday - Top Ender's Birthday Meal
We are allowed to chose what the family eat on our birthday and Top Ender had asked for us to have Lasagne, but as we had it on Saturday we said that she couldn't have it tonight too. So at the moment we aren't sure what we are having (but it may well be a trip out to a restaurant so Ssssh! Don't tell Top Ender).
Friday - Movie Night
Daddy and I are going to work really hard this year to make sure that a lot of the plans we had for last year become engrained into our family. Movie night is going to be the first one we tackle. We did for a while watch a film on a Thursday night and have a themed pudding or dinner to go with the film. We want to start that up again and whilst some weeks it might be that we just eat so called cinema food (hot dogs, nacho's and popcorn) other weeks we'll have something themed. We're not sure what we'll be eating this Friday as we aren't sure what film we're watching yet!
So that's our plan for the week. Hopefully it will be tasty and balanced out with lots of fruit and veg!
