Evening Meals (W/C 18/05)

Week Four of the diet. I'm sticking firm to my decision not to weigh myself until the end of week six, so I can't really say if it's having the right influence on me but my clothes are feeling a little looser!

Saturday - Gammon

Every time we eat Gammon we wonder why we don't eat it more often, and I'm sure that tomorrow won't be that different! We're serving it grilled with new potatoes, broad beans and pineapple.

Sunday - Roast Chicken

I'm getting used to only eating a small amount of dinner compared to what I was eating, but I don't understand how the portion sizes of the food made during the week are so big compared to this one which is so small!

Monday - Meatless Monday Pizza or Curry

When I made the Aubergine and Lentil Curry in week one, there was so much left over that I froze it for a night such as this. I'm off out this evening to the Theatre with my Mum, so I needed something quick to  for dinner. The Children are having pizza because they really weren't that keen on the Curry!

Tuesday - Fish Fingers, Chips and Peas

When we had this for our Saturday meal I was surprised at how tasty it was. I think that I just don't really think about such a simple meal as being so tasty and satisfying and filling!

Wednesday - Veggie Burgers

I'm going to make the burgers myself because the veggie burgers that you can buy on the UK market are not gluten free, but this has the additional benefit of me knowing exactly what goes in them. We had a brilliant veggie burger at Camp Bestival a few years back and so I'm hoping that mine will be as good if not better!

Thursday - Tuna Kedgeree (minus the egg!)

I'm really missing different kinds of fish, but the menu plans that we are following from the book tend to stick to tuna. I'm guessing that this is because it is an easy to get to fish, as in everyone can buy a can of Tuna and also because it's relatively inexpensive.

Friday - Turkey and Mushroom Pie

I'm really rubbish at making gluten free pastry, so I'm going to cheat and buy some of the frozen stuff, but this pie with broccoli and potatoes as a side will still count as being home made right?!

So that's the meal plan for this next week, what do you think? I still don't think it looks like a diet meal plan do you?!
