Anyway the meal plan today has been made from meals asked for and meals to suit. I've still not attempted anything from a cook book recently so I will need to start looking for varied meals to try over the next months. If you have a family favourite that everyone likes (and I mean the fussy ones too) then let me know!
Monday - Leftover Chicken Stirfry
Tuesday - Toad in the Hole, Mash, Carrots and Broccoli
Wednesday - Left over sausage meatballs, sauce and spaghetti
Thursday - Sloppy Joe
Friday - Nachos and leftover sloppy Joe mince
Saturday - Takeaway or?? ( haven't decided yet - its me and Neb's wedding anniversary this week so we may spoil ourselvves!)
Sunday -Roast something!!

Tuesday -Steak and chips
Wednesday - flat chicken and salad or chips
Thursday -Fish and something!
Friday -Payday so possibly homemade pizza
Saturday - off to finish last to get school bits so will pop into Tesco's and get something yummy

So as we are kid free the meal plan would've gone out the window but I was very organised and did work out things we could eat!
So in no particular order the meals we have planned* are
Oven baked Risotto
* Although I have planned these we are very likely to have takeaway at least once and maybe toasties a few times when we both can't be bothered to cook!
We're also going off out for lunch at least once!
Hope you all have a fab meal plan made - joining in with Mrs M!

We had a great time in Northumberland and enjoyed every part of the county - definately a place I could move to!
The meal plan is only half done as my brain wasn't up to the thinking last night on our lazy day at home before today so after Wednesday its a bit of hit and miss....
Monday - Spag Bol/ Chilli
Tuesday - Gougons/Fish Fingers and Chips
Wednesday - Butter Chicken curry - from a jar so fingers crossed the kids will eat it
Thursday - something with Fish (there's some in the freezer!)
Friday/Saturday/Sunday - undecided

Its still warm here and also the first day of my holidays. The kids may have been off for a week already but now the fun begins as I'm off too. We may not do much this week apart from walking local walks and having free outdoor fun as we are off up North on Saturday for our annual holiday. We are going further north than we have gone before ( not Scotland ) and we are hoping that the warm weather stays with us.
Meal plan for this week is a bit of freezer search
Monday Tuna pasta for the kids, I've got leftover sausage casserole to have on my pasta
Tuesday Chicken,rice and barbecue sauce ( 2 out of 3 from the freezer)
Wednesday Homemade beef and or pork thai burgers with chips
Friday At Neb's parents and its going to be pasta and sauce with bacon crispy bits
Saturday .... let the holiday begin
Pop back in tomorrow so I can let you know about some great summery chocolates you can win

So, just to put it all in context I wasn't there.
Neb passed on this funny story today and its a hoot so I thought I'd share (plus it will be a funny thing to remember when we're old and grey(er))
Bel is off on a school trip next week and due to the fact that she is like a beanpole we had to get new pyjamas, so off to Matalan we went. Pyjamas bought for both girls and we came home. Nothing more was said about until Car came down in her new pyjamas and bless her they were falling down.
So, Neb went with girls to change the size and during the exchange he heard Car say
It's Iraq's fault
Turning round and looking at Car he told me that he had no idea what to say, she quite often hears things on the radio so he asked what has Iraq got to do with it.
PS she actually said.... it was the racks fault

Last week we stuck quite well to the meal plan apart from Friday when the girls had flat chicken!!
This week's meal plan has been done at speed last night while cooking burgers!! I've also added prices for the products that I thought were good value on the meal plan
Monday - Burger in the bun and chips -(these ones from Lidl - good bargain I think)
Tuesday - Fajitas using the kit brought from Morrisons
Wednesday - Sausages and Chips for the girls, Oven baked risotto for me and Neb
Thursday - Sausage Meatballs and Pasta (using leftover sausages from last night)
Friday - my last day in current job - may have to be takeaway tonight
Saturday - Lasagne
Sunday - Roast or Salad of some kind dependant on weather!
And no, I haven't been sponsored by Pimms but when its sunny and the tennis is on and there's an offer in Morrisons then you just have to.....
(Morrisons - currently £10)
