Meal Planning Monday - 23rd November

Following on from last weeks whinge about how disorganised my life is, I am back on the meal planning bandwagon and determined to stick to it. The way my schedule works at the moment means that Zoe eats at nursery all day Monday and Tuesday, so I don't need to worry about her on those days.

I am actually looking forward to each of these meals this week, lets just hope I remember to get everything out of the freezer the night before.

Monday: Chicken & Mozzarella Risotto - This is an adaptation of a Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall recipe from his Veg Everyday book, but with added leftover roast chicken.

Tuesday: Pork Chops with garlic mash and veg - I love adding some roasted garlic to my mash, makes it a bit fancy with very little effort.

Wednesday: Lasagne or Chilli - I have minced beef so will do either a lasagne/bolognese or chilli, depending on how I feel on the day.

Thursday: Salmon fried rice - A firm favourite in this house, with a bit of chilli and ginger, and a dash of soy sauce.

Friday: Homemade Pizzas - I haven't made these for ages, but its so easy and cheaper than a take away.

I have a load of lunch related things like sandwich meat, baked potatoes, soups, spaghetti or eggs on toast etc... And for breakfasts we'll be having english muffins (Zoe's new favourite thing), or toast.

This weeks weekly shop came to £38 from Aldi.
