Meal Planning Monday - 8th February

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? The definition of madness isn't it? With that being said, even though we have not been sticking to meal plans much recently I feel better for having one. My main issue at the moment is either getting home from work and feeling too tired to set foot in the kitchen, or spending all day out and about with Zoe on adventures and then not having time to prepare something more than fish fingers and waffles.

I know, I know, excuses excuses. So this week I am thinking if I put a bit more thought into what we are doing and taking the time to plan and prep... We may actually stick to it! That being said we have a fairly busy week this week so convenience is the key this week.

Monday: Salmon Egg Fried Rice - An oldies but a quick goodie, I'll make enough for lunch leftovers.

Tuesday: Fish finger sandwiches - I am often home late on a Tuesday, so something quick but yummy is needed. Zoe eats at Nursery so its just me and Paul.

Wednesday: Bangers and Mash with green Veggies - I only work Wednesday mornings so will have time to peel potatoes and get my act together.

Thursday: I am off to the cinema to see Pride Prejudice and Zombies with my sister, but we are eating at home first so I am going to get some bolognese in the slow cooker in the morning and make a lasagne with salad and garlic bread.

Friday: I am off out for my work leaving do, so hopefully their will be lasagne leftover for Paul and I will knock up some pesto pasta or man n cheese for me and Zoe.

I have a good feeling about this week. We spent Sunday having a good old spring clean so I feel like we are starting with a clean slate. Wish me luck!
