Our weekly meal plan! 25th - 31st December. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Happy Christmas! I hope you are having a wonderful day whatever you are doing! I wrote this blog post in the middle of last week, with a few bits added yesterday, trying to get ahead with things so I can take some time off blogging and spend it with my family.

This is probably my favourite week of the year for food. If all has gone to plan I will be in the kitchen cooking which I don't mind, although I got most of it done yesterday after going on a parsnip hunt. Asda didn't deliver any but the local farm shop didn't let us down. Christmas dinner is the one meal of the year that I love cooking. I will have music playing and a glass of bucks fizz. We won't be eating until about 4pm when Becky gets up from sleeping after her night shift. Usually she would go to bed as soon as she gets in but there are of course presents to open and those are more important than sleep. hehehe

On the menu this week we have:

Today we are of course having Christmas dinner with all the trimmings! Turkey, pork, pigs in blankets, about 5 different types of stuffing (I love stuffing), mashed and roast potatoes, swede, carrots, broccoli, roast parsnips, Brussels sprouts, cranberry sauce and lots and lots of gravy!

Tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we will be eating leftovers from Christmas dinner. I always cook way too much and to be honest I like it better on Boxing day and the day after. We will also be eating lots of snacky food like sausage rolls, pork pies, cheese and crackers and of course chocolate.

Saturday we will eat a normal meal. We will have something simple. A fry up with sausage, bacon, eggs, black pudding, mushrooms, tomatoes and toast.

Then on Sunday, New Years Eve we will be having party food! I stocked up a few weeks ago when I went shopping to Iceland. Mini pizzas, quiche, sausage rolls, breaded chicken bits, sticky chicken skewers, garlic bread, onion rings, sandwiches, crisps nuts, mini chocolate eclairs, doughnuts and macarons.

What do you eat over Christmas?
