Meal Plans and Family Time W/C 22nd June

It's amazing what a week of "real" food can do. All members of the household are feeling much better and whilst we aren't thinking about doing a no buy challenge again just yet, we have realised that we are what we eat and we like to eat things that make us happy!

So, here is what we are eating this week!

Family Time

Saturday - BBQ Chicken Burgers with Wedges



We love BBQ Chicken Burgers, we take a Chicken breast, butterfly them, marinade them in BBQ Sauce for what seems like forever, before either baking or grilling them and putting them in soft buttered rolls and then just enjoying them in our own time.

Sunday - Pork Chops with Apple Sauce and Cheese and Mash


We eat when we come home from Chuch, Flyfour prepares the meal for us and this is one he loves to make! We love it because it combines some of our favourite foods and we don't often eat Pork.

Monday - Pan-Fried Salmon with Salad


Top Ender is going to be so pleased when she finds out that not only are we going to a show tonight (Fame), but also we're having Pan-Fried Salmon which she LOVES.

Well, we all think it is rather lovely.

Tuesday - Creamy Garlic and Spinach Pasta (with some mushrooms too)


This is one of my favourite meals, I love Pasta. I love Spinach and I love creamy sauces. Yeah, this is totally a meal just for me that the rest of the family will eat because it's tasty, but not because it is their favourite!

Wednesday - Pizza and Salad


Everyone loves pizza and most of the family love salad, so this is a great meal to have. Top Ender and I will be having it at Brownies as we're having a picnic with the Brownies unit that we volunteer with.

Thursday - Cauliflower and Broccoli Cheese with Fresh Rolls


I was trying to think of a meal that was veggie, but that was also filling and Dan Jon thought a portion of Cauliflower and Broccoli Cheese would be fab and I have to say I think he is right!

Friday - Fish Cakes with Salad and Cubed Potatoes


We have some great Fish Cakes that we love from a local Fishmongers, so I'm going to make a special trip there today to get some for our meal tonight. The cubed potatoes are a nod to Top Ender because she isn't that keen on Fish Cakes and she loves cubed potatoes almost as much as she loves the Salmon.

So that's what we're eating this week! How about you?
