Meal Planning 11/04/16

Last week we actually cooked all the meals on the plan. A couple in a slightly different order but still all the planned meals were prepared and cooked. If I had put this post up yesterday, we would already have failed this week. Yesterday involved an English Breakfast, wood splitting and a trip to the pub so the planned Sunday roast is now a Monday roast.

Monday – Roast Shoulder of Lamb
Tuesday – I’m working so the Other Half will be in charge, I suspect Leftover Lamb Curry may be on the cards.
Wednesday – I’m working again so he is still in charge
Thursday – Pork Chops in some form of creamy mushroom sauce
Friday – Chicken stir fry
Saturday – something with gnocchi – probably similar to this spinach and chicken recipe.

 

 

Meal planning 04/04/16

A day later than normal as I have only sat down to write a plan this morning. Last week did not go to plan as we only managed three dishes from the list but we also had more leftovers than we expected so lamb curry lasted two days. As this week is a little quieter I hope we will be a little better.

Monday – Mini Chicken Schnitzel with oven roasted chips
Tuesday – Nigel Slater’s Braised Pig Cheek

Wednesday – I’m out so the other Half will be catering for him and Small Person
Thursday – a Pinterest inspired Mojo Pork Tenderloin

Friday – a good friend of mine has threatened to forage some wild garlic which I have never cooked with, the intention currently is to make a chicken and wild garlic risotto
Saturday – Chilli, either made with beef like here or with Chorizo

As always, thoughts and comments welcome below!

Meal Planning 27th March

What a busy few weeks, no meal plan at all last week but things are a bit quieter for now.

Sunday – the traditional roast lamb
Monday – curry from a jar with the leftovers
Tuesday – Chicken in butter, wine and thyme sauce but with spinach this time!
Wednesday – Sausage and mash
Thursday – Out for dinner
Friday – pig cheeks, probably this Nigel Slater recipe
