Last week has got me in the mood for summery food! #mealplanningmonday

Wasn't the weather lovely last week....It has got me in the mood for lighter summer food....

Last weeks meal plan went half to plan....We ended up with chicken salad instead of stir fry, we had sandwiches and crisps on Friday night and the pizza on Saturday....Yesterday I cooked a couple of chickens and we had some with chips.

I don't feel like being in the kitchen when the weather is warm and the kids don't feel like eating big meals...It's supposed to be a little cooler this week and I read that we are forecast wintry showers and icy conditions towards the end of the week which seems so unfair when we've had a taste of spring/summer....

This week on the menu we have:

Monday - Chicken & pasta salad....
Tuesday - Baked Sweetcorn Fritters and salad....
Wednesday - Quiche and baked beans....
Thursday - Katsu Chicken Bites & rice....
Friday - Pizza....
Saturday - Pork & apple burgers in buns with corn on the cob.... 
Sunday - A roast dinner of some sort or something thrown in the slow cooker....It really depends on the weather.

What will you be eating this week?


  1. We had wraps and a side salad with a few seasoned wedges on Saturday. Been having stews and other winter meals before that!

  2. Oh I haven't made any plans for this week yet. How bad! I'm planning on pasta tonight .

  3. Pork and apple burger sounds delicious. I had to click the link to check it out. Thanks! #MMBC

  4. Those sweetcorn fritters look amazing- havent seen those before

  5. Im the same in the warm weather, I don't want to be stood in my small kitchen cooking big meals, we have had a few salads, tuna mayo pasta, pizza etc too, we have had our summer now, it's back to casseroles, stews and belly warming food xxx

  6. Lovely menu - chicken and pasta is a family favourite

  7. Sounds delicious! I think I'm going to give that chicken pasta a go soon!

  8. I want to try the 'Baked Sweetcorn Fritters', it sounds delicious. Also I have not heard of them before, so it would be a new experience for me.

  9. Lovely selection of dishes. Perfect for the warmer weather.
