Meal Planning Monday - 17th February

Gratuitous cat picture, because, why not?


Been a while since I did one of these Meal Planning Monday posts! To be totally honest with you its been a while since I planned anything. There has been a lot of take-aways and cereal for dinner around here and it needs to stop! I did my food shop at Asda yesterday and I am ready to plan the heck out of this week... LETS DO THIS!

Cottage pie with carrots. I bought one of those huge packets of mince for £5 which I split into 3 portions to freeze. This makes for three delicious yet budget-friendly dinners. There will also be plenty leftovers for lunch on Tuesday.

Sticky BBQ chicken thighs with crush potatoes and corn on the cob. I managed to grab some seriously reduced organic skinless and boneless thighs which I plan to marinade in a BBQ sauce and serve with my new favourite potatoes. Boiled new potatoes, which I crush slightly and roast... They are seriously tasty. Is this a recipe you'd like to see blogged?

I am out at a friends house, so no meals planned.

Bangers and Mash, an oldie but a goodie.

Beef lasagne with salad and garlic bread, if I am feeling particularly organised I might even make my own pasta dough on Thursday night in preparation!

No plans for the weekend yet.

Feels good to have a plan guys! What have you got planned this week? Always on the hunt for new and interesting recipes to try. Feel free to share your ideas and blog posts in the comments! :)
