Okay, I need to write this post quickly because otherwise it will be meal planning Tuesday which is insufficiently alliterative. There are a couple of problems here. One is that I have not thought of a meal plan yet. The other is that I am so tired after a long and busy day (fab time at the Britmums Christmas do this morning, too much walking in high heels, catching up with a friend this afternoon while the children ate fish and chips, and then choir practice this evening) that I can’t think beyond tomorrow. But I need a meal plan, it’s been working really well, and I don’t want to get out of the habit. It may be a little odd that I have to check my own blog to find out what I’m supposed to be cooking each night, but it’s working for me.
So tonight was fish and chips, and tomorrow’s supper will be cold beef and bubble and squeak (leftovers from daddy’s excellent roast dinner on Sunday.) Wednesday will need to be something quick before Rainbows and Beavers, so probably Quorn chicken pieces and/or fishfingers, oven chips and veggies. Thursday will be chick pea and chorizo stew which turned out rather well last week, with baked potatoes if I remember to buy any in time. I will do macaroni cheese on Friday for an early supper before we go to the high street to sing with our choir at the switching on of the Christmas lights. On Saturday we will be having supper at our first meeting of Messy Church, a new initiative at out church which Paul and I will be running, with a lot of help from some wonderful friends (one of whom will be cooking for us this time!) I’m not sure about Sunday yet, but possibly a roast dinner of some description.
I’m too tired, and it’s too close to midnight, so breakfasts, lunches, puddings and snacks will have to be made up as I go along this week. I will finish with a photo with the prawn curry we made on Saturday evening. Yes, I know last week’s post had a picture of prawn curry too, but (a) no-one will remember that, right? and (b) there’s a small but significant difference. But that’s for another post 🙂
