Meal Planning Monday - 16th September

Happy Monday! I am doing the rarest of things and posting twice in one day. This is not a usual occurrence for me but this week it is necessary as I didn't get my Great British Bake Off post written up in time to publish last week. Whoops!

I still had my usual meal plan to do, so here I am, spoiling you with double posts!

This week I am organised! I wrote a list, I planned, I shopped and I am prepared. I know, weird right?

Breakfasts and lunches this week will be overnight oats (honestly a post on this is coming soon) and various salads/pastas and leftovers where possible. I didn't buy any lunches last week and it felt so good!

I am off out this evening to the new Dabbawal restaurant in Jesmond. Dabbawal is a fabulous Indian restaurant, their first restaurant is on High Bridge St in the centre of Newcastle, but they have just opened a second location in Jesmond. Looking forward to sampling the menu with my fellow cake-ladies!

Tonight is Bake Off night! I have a friend coming over to drink tea and watch it, but before that I shall squeeze in a lovely spaghetti and meatballs.

As Autumn is upon us now we are opting for a lot of warming dishes, tonight it is pork chops with mustard mash and green beans.

Noodles, I haven't decided quite what to do with them yet but I fancy some stir-fry, veggie, noodle action of some sort.

Friday is fish-day this week, we have some lightly dusted haddock fillets with homemade chips.

So this is my week in food, as always I have shared my plan over on Mrs M's Linky.

What are you guys eating this week?
