Our weekly meal plan! 20th - 26th September. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went well. We skipped the quiches on Tuesday as it was chucking it down all day and we wanted something filling and warming. We had sausages, mashed potato and baked beans, proper comfort food. Yesterday we had corned beef hash. I am loving all these hearty meals and have a few more coming up this week as the weather doesn't look too great.

On Wednesday and Thursday I was trying out a food delivery service which you will be able to read about later in the week. I tried a lot of new things and ate very well. One of the most interesting meals was nectarine and broad bean salad. I would never have thought of eating that usually but it was delicious. 

Ellie has a few things on this week at school. She has put her name down to help out with the school open evening for the year 6's. She just wants to have a nosy as we know a few families with kids starting year 7 next year. I am not too sure about it now with the rise in Covid cases at school. I don't even think it will go ahead to be honest, we got an email from school saying it's back to wearing masks around school and class bubbles with the kids staying in one classroom and the teachers moving around the school. I don't know how that's going to work as all the kids are doing different subjects for their GCSE's.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - A roast chicken dinner. Roast chicken, roast potatoes and parsnips, carrots, broccoli, sprouts, pigs in blankets and peas.
Wednesday - Beef stew cooked in the slow cooker.
Thursday - Tuna pasta bake.
Friday - Fish, chips and mushy peas.
Saturday - Pizza.
Sunday - Toad in the hole, mash and veg.

What are you eating this week?

  1. Our kids have been wearing masks since the start of the year but cases are still on the rise here and busses are becoming problematic as it makes it way through all the bus drivers and students are missing school left and right for weeks at a time while they isolate. So far our school is carrying on as normal though... We have a few easy meals planned for the week but may be switching them up for comfort foods like soup and casseroles.

  2. Toad in the hole is one of my all time favourites. I hope everything goes to plan x

  3. Your roast chicken with veggies sounds wonderful. I'd love to try your chicken. #MMBC

  4. Today is definitely a hearty meal day here, I think the salad weather has gone :o(
    Nectarine and broad bean salad sounds interesting - not a combination I would have thought of! I look forward to reading your review :o)


  5. Ooh that all sounds yummy. It is nice to be able to enjoy hearty meals again. I love the sound of the nectarine and broad bean salad but I suspect the kids would reject it. Hope you enjoy your roast chicken this evening. #MMBC

  6. Ooh I do love a nice roast chicken, I'll have to make one soon I think! Take care and thanks for linking up x

  7. Can't beat a roast dinner, especially with the weather getting cooler now especially of a morning and evening.
    Yummy meals planned.
    Have a great week x

  8. Ooh sounds like a great week. The Tex-Mex traybake sounds lovely and I love all the veggie options with your chicken. I just do carrots - I'm a meanie ! lol
