I really enjoyed having a meal plan for last week. It seemed to take some off the load from the my poor child-focused brain and I was surprised at just how helpful I found it. I also was surprised that I stuck to it without any problems and it made it easier to fit in the cooking on days when I cooked something more fiddly.
All round a big thumbs up. So this week it's all about using up what's in the fridge to go shopping as little as possible and waste a little as possible.
Monday: Roast with Nut Cutlets
Tuesday: Pea & courgette flan, corn on the cob, bulgar wheat and salad (flan cooked off today so all ready)
Wednesday: Curry...something with coconut milk and a cauliflower side dish with lots of greens. Malaysian?
Thursday: Bean & Veg chilli (will make this Tuesday to (a) use up the tin of kidney beans I accidentally opened today and (b) to give it a couple of days to mature in flavour)
Friday: Pie, mash and greens
Saturday: Carrot, pea & leek risotto
Sunday: Veg & potato gratin and greens
Okay so I've already done the roast and that was great and I'll try to cook the curry on Tuesday to make Wednesday a bit easier because I'm out in the morning.
Now I just need inspiration on what pie to try this week!
