Meal Planning Monday - 21st March


Last week's Sausage Risotto was amazing!

I feel like I am well and truly back into the swing of things, I stuck mostly to my plan last week and it felt good. I had some great meal wins with the sausage risotto and prawn pesto pasta. I am definitely feeling inspired to try new things and get out of the food rut we are stuck in. I also moved into my new office last Tuesday, which has its own mini kitchen, so I feel more inclined to take food into work and cook things, rather than just grabbing a sandwich on the go.

I have also been having a long hard think about going back to Weight Watchers again, anyone doing the WW Plan? Would you recommend?

So without further ado, this weeks plan...

Monday - Leftover Roast Risotto, we had a roast dinner on Sunday, so I saved some chicken and carrots for tonights risotto. After last weeks triumph, I have high hopes.

Tuesday - Prawn and pesto pasta, it was so quick easy and delicious last week, we decided to make it again. It is the perfect quick recipe for our busiest night of the week.

Wednesday - Jacket potatoes with homemade chips and fried egg. - Totally just noticed this typo, two days after posting... It should read Gammon, with chips and egg! LOL

Thursday - Toastie night! We do love a good toastie in this house.

Friday - Lasagne with garlic bread and salad, we have family visiting and they arrive on Good Friday, so a tray of lasagne will be waiting.
