its been a while in between published meal plans huh?! #lazy but planning i have been, following through…not so much. there have been plenty of late nights, activities, unwell/tired family members that have meant we’ve been calling the pizza and indian takeaways more than i would like the past couple of months. especially given both hubby and i are trying to lose some weight! anyways, onwards and upwards to healthier meals and more organisation by me. weeks where i spend a solid afternoon in the kitchen pre-preparing meals always go so much more smoothly for me/us, i really need to get into the habit of doing this regularly.
onto our menu…i will post these recipes daily on facebook too along with our critique (very masterchef like) of the meal afterwards :-)
Friday: hubby & i are going out to enjoy a French 3 course dinner which was a Christmas gift so the kiddies & their aunty can have a sneaky pizza ;-)
Saturday: beef tikka marsala (supermarket packet sauce)
sunday: pork with cider & cream when i buy a roast, i generally buy it big enough to provide two meals, they are great budget cuts and the leftovers make for some yummy pies
Monday: beef & beer casserole YUMMMMMMMM!!!!
Tuesday: leftover roast pork pies…bit of pastry, filled with the leftovers & a good splash of gravy = quick, easy, tasty dinner!
Wednesday: stuffed capsicums with cous cous ….token vegetarian meal for the week. normally i try to fit in but have opted for a fish dinner over another vegetarian
Thursday: baked fish with tomatoes & olives super easy dinner but also super tasty!
on the baking & other cooking front:
- bircher muesli-loved by the whole fam!
- yoghurt-yep, I’ve started making my own-super satisfying!
- jam slice
- rice pudding
enjoy your weekend and week ahead! xx
