Meal Planning Monday - 14th March

My triumphant curry from last weeks meal plan.

I feel like we ended last week on a bit of a high, we stuck to the meal plan every day except Thursday, as the supermarket had no decent salmon and we had plenty of lasagne left over from the night before. I also made a stunning homemade curry on Friday, which I can see becoming a meal plan staple in various incarnations.

I am feeling a little bit bloated and sluggish at the moment and really need to get myself back in control of my diet, a few too many chocolate bunnies and not enough salad. So with that in mind I am planning a slightly healthier menu, or at least loading my plate with a few more veggies.

Monday - Gammon with sweet potato, veggies and a fried egg. Aldi had unsmoked gammon steaks on special last week, so I bought a few packs of 2.

Tuesday - King prawn and pesto pasta, something quick and tasty is ideal for one of our busiest days of the week.

Wednesday - Sausage Risotto, but of a random one based on what we have in the cupboard, but a yummy simple risotto made with chicken stock, with chopped cooked sausages and whatever veggies we have in the fridge.

Thursday - Twice baked tuna jacket potatoes and salad.

Friday - Pulled pork with crash hot potatoes and corn on the cob and homemade heathy coleslaw, we have a pork shoulder in the freezer, so I'm planning a slow cooked pulled pork.

It is a bit of a random one, as we are trying to use up what we have rather than doing a food shop, but I have high hopes. I'm also planning to take my own lunch to work AND not buy coffee... Wish me luck.
