Dinner Plans (W/C 15/06)

It's the start of the second week with two fast days in for Daddy and I, and to be honest other than having to think up some tasty filling 500 calorie meals for us in the evening it's surprisingly easy. The Children haven't noticed seeing as how they've been eating earlier in the day anyway and I haven't seen any weight loss this week but I wasn't expecting to really.

Saturday - Baked Sloppy Joes


I really do think that this is one of our favourite meals now, it's simple to make and is a nice way to have mince other than in a Shepherd's pie or with pasta.

Sunday - Roast Chicken


Even though today is Father's Day, Daddy will still be cooking the full roast by himself. Luckily he rather enjoys it!

Monday - Fast Day - Prawn Stir fry


Daddy and I are fasting today, so I'm doing a prawn stir-fry for us in the evening. I decided on this because the amount of food you get is quite high as the stir fry vegetables are rather low in calories but high in taste with some Chinese Five Spice and Gluten Free Soy Sauce.

The Children have decided that they would like a pasta dish, so I'm making them Macaroni Cheese. I'm thinking of adding peas and hot dogs to the meal, but not sure at this second.

Tuesday - Restaurant


I'm taking Top Ender out to the Theatre tonight, so we're sneaking out a little early to grab some dinner too. Daddy and Big Boy have yet to decide what they are going to have (I'd place my money on Sausages) but Tops and I will be trying out the new menu at Frankie and Benny's.

Wednesday - Seared Chicken with Vegetables and New Potatoes


The whole family are going to have this, although knowing how BB is still thinking that Chicken is evil (despite demanding some last Sunday) I'll have something on back up for him so that he doesn't miss out on some Protein.

Thursday - Fast Day - Lamb with Fennel and Orange Salad


I've had this before, but with Pork instead of Lamb and it was quite nice, so I'm hoping that it will be just as lovely with the lamb. The Children won't go for the stronger flavours of the salad and the lamb so I'm doing them grilled lamb with sliced jacket potatoes.

Friday - Gammon with Mash and Pineapple


I'm not going to be here, seeing as how I'll be at BRITMUMS! I know, I know, I kept that a bit quiet didn't I? The wonderful Coca-Cola have brought me a ticket and a night in a hotel so I'm leaving this for the Children and I'll probably be eating the crumbs from the bottom of my handbag whilst swigging some Dr Pepper... don't worry I'll remember to eat something proper!

So that's our week, but what I do have to remember come next weekend is that we have a munch and mingle at Church on the Sunday and I want to make something on the Saturday to take... so this is my reminder and also a request to you guys to suggest something to make and take. Last time I made Home Made Hobnobs, but I feel like making something different this time.
