Evening Meals W/C 16th June 2018

I actually cheated and made this meal plan when I made last weeks meal plan. I did it because I was trying to be smart and reduce the amount of time I spend meal planning and because I was planning on my friend having her baby this weekend... it didn't work! The baby came early, and even though all the meals this week (During Monday to Friday) are able to be made by Top Ender in case I was not here and looking after my friend or her daughter I've decided that this week I'll just sit back and relax and let Top Ender take the strain this week whilst I drink all the fruit tea I want!

Fruit Tea in the Garden


Saturday - Sausages and Mash


Top Ender is doing her DOE this weekend, so Dan Jon, Flyfour and I are eating alone. We decided to go with (well I did) Sausages because who doesn't like Sausages?

Sunday - Father's Day Roast

As it is Father's Day, we decided to let Flyfour decide what we would have. He decided that we'd have a Roast, which we are all of course very happy about, I would feel bad that he is cooking it whilst we are at Church, but as we don't know what time Top Ender will finish her DOE, we're eating in the evening this weekend!

Monday - Pasta Salad


I'm thinking a greek pasta salad, with feta, tomatoes and cucumber but I'll decide when I'm shopping and see the price of veg! It might be that I decide to go down the pasta, salad leaves and pesto route!

Tuesday - Fish Pie


I know, nobody likes it but I do and it's healthy for us all and everyone needs to eat at least two portions of fish a week and this will do one of those portions! I'll make the pie up and allow Top Ender to cook it just for ease, but she would have known how to make it from Scratch as she's a clever cook!

Wednesday - Cheesy Bacon Pasta


I love a bit of pasta, and this has to be one of the best dishes and certainly easy to make. All you need to do is cook up some pasta, stir in some cheese (cream cheese) and the bacon/onion mix. Easy, fast and tasty especially when served with a bit of salad.

Thursday - Chicken Bake


I love a good chicken tray bake, and so that's what we're having tonight along with chopped mixed Mediterranean vegetables and some crispy cubed potatoes.

Friday - Turkish Night


We really love trying different cuisines, so I thought I'd start with something familiarish and Turkish was what fitted the bill. It will be a great treat for the whole family.

We're having Kebabs, hummus and flat breads, along with a salad and plenty of meze! I think one of the mums I see on the School run is Turkish, so I'm going to check and ask if she could help me make some Baklava and source some Strawberry Lemonade!

And so that is what we are eating this week!
