Meal Plan 19th April

Today we are going to be sharing the meals which we are going to be consuming this Easter Weekend. Of course, this week is not a normal one. We are actually having to feed Jess 4 times this week.This is double the amount of meals we normally have to do due to Easter.  There is also a day when she is not going to be at Nursery because we are in York for an event. I would like to think that there is a wide range of different meals this week. Hopefully some of them will give you inspiration for some meals which you want to consuming yourself in the future.

Monday- Chicken Parmigianna and Jacket Potato. I saw someone unfortunately I can not remember who it was in Katy’s Linky have this meal. I had some chicken which needed to be used up and also some mozzarella. i thought that this was a great way to use both up. This is a meal which is a little bit different to something which we would normally make which is always a bonus. I do like to keep things fresh when it comes to meal planning.

Tuesday- Bacon and Sausage Casserole. This again is a meal which has come around due to us having things in the freezer which I wanted to use up. We had some bacon and sausage alongside some parsnip and swede. So I decided to have a google and see what kind of meals I could make using these items. This is how I came up with the bacon and sausage casserole. I am looking forward to this meal because it is something different and not something which we would have normally thought about making.  I think this is one of the reasons I love pinterest so much.

Wednesday- Prawn Curry, recently I purchase a large number of prawns reduced and froze them. I am going to get one of the packets out and make then into a prawn curry. This is such a simple meal we are going to be doing this as we will have been in York all day. Jess and I for an event which means that when we get home we want something quick because she does have nursery the next day after all. I will be serving this with rice and of course, I am not going to make it too hot as it is also for Jess.

Thursday- Chicken Pad Thai,I think this is one of my favourite meals at the moment. You may remember we made a simple shrimp pad thai. I fancied making something along this lines I had some more chicken to use. So this is where the idea of a Chicken Pad Thai came from. We also had all of the ingredient nearly in for this meal so I thought it would be a good meal. Of course, this is the last meal of the week where we do not have Jess. This is why we have chosen a meal which Jess may not actually eat.

Friday- Chilli and Lime Cod Fillets, this is a meal which Joe and I will consume. Jess is going to have some fish fingers and chips. This is going to be a split meal which is not something we would normally do. However, we wanted to have a traditional good Friday Meal of fish. We had the Cod in the freezer from when we had purchased i the reduced section. I am unsure if we will have these with wedges or chips. This is hopefully going to be a healthier option instead of having traditional fish and chips.

Saturday- Takeaway, we are actually going out on Saturday.  I have a feeling that we could end up home late so we want something simple to be able to have. This is our monthly takeaway treat because we are trying to cut down on the number which we consume. I could not tell you which takeaway we are going to consume yet as we have not decided. I am unsure which one I fancy at the moment. In all honesty this could end up with us having a slow cooker meal instead.

Sunday- BBQ, fingers crossed. If the weather is as nice as it is meant to be this is what we are thinking about doing. I am unsure if we will actually end up having one or not. We are thinking about having my parents over and doing an Easter egg hunt for Jess. I am unsure if this is something which we will end up doing or not. I guess I should have a meal on standby in case the weather does turn and become horrible again.

Of course, like every meal plan this is linked up with the amazing Katy. I get a lot of the inspiration from her and the linky which she runs. If you are struggling consuming the same meals I would recommend checking it out. You may find a meal which you love.

What meals are you planning on consuming this week?

Meal Inspiration Monday – Chicken, Leek and Brie Pie

A pie is something which I have been fancying for a long time. I wanted to make something a little bit different to the ones which you can pick up in the stores. I was browsing on pinterest and I found one which was Chicken, Leek and Brie. Brie is something which I love and rarely cook with I do not think I have done since we moved. This is a meal which we loved actually and we can not wait to make again. I know this is properly not going to happen until the autumn/ winter months. It is an amazing comfortable food which I is something which you sometime need. For sure this is for sure something which we will make again in the future. It was pretty easy to make as well.

Ingredient – Serves 4

2 Large squares of puff pastry

25g Butter

1 Leek thinly sliced

3 Crushed garlic cloves

400g Chicken diced into 1 inch cubes

125ml White Wine

125ml Chicken Stock

2 Tablespoons Cornflour

60ml Cold Water

100g Brie thinly sliced

60g Parsley Chopped

1 Egg lightly beaten

Salt and Pepper

Method

  1. In a medium sized saucepan over a medium heat, melt the butter and cook down the garlic and leek until soft. Add chicken and cook through.
  2. Add the wine and Chicken Stock and cook for a further 5 Minutes. Season with Salt and Pepper.
  3. In a small bowl mix together the cornflour and water to create a paste. Add this to the chicken mixture along with the chopped parsley.
  4. Mix through the whole mixture and remove from the heat.
  5. Take the first sheet of the puff pastry.  Leave a 1 ½ inch border around all sides make about 8 evenly spaced slits along the width of the pastry sheet.
  6. Place the second sheet on the baking tray and spoon the chicken mixture into the center. Spread the mixture out, leaving a 1 ½ inch border.
  7. Place the slices of brie on top. With a pastry brush (or your finger), brush some of the beaten egg around this border.
  8. Put the first sheet on top of the second, press down the border with your fingers and brush the egg over the top of the pie.
  9. Cook for 20 minutes on 200c until the Chicken, Leek and Brie Pie is golden brown. Wait 5 minutes for it too cool otherwise you may burn your mouth.

I am so glad that I made the Chicken, Leek and Brie pie. For sure this is a new comfort food which I can not wait t make again in the future. It only took around 40 minutes to make. I know this is going to be one which Joe is going to demand we make again. It was so simple as well.

What is your favourite pie filling?

Meal Plan 12th April

Another week has managed to speed past us. I am unsure how the hell this has happened for some reason since February time seems to have whizzed by. We have managed to meal plan every single week and some of these have been harder than others. This week we have had to make meals which we can use in the slow cooker because we was unsure what hours Joe was going to be working. We have been able to eat meals together which is something that is important to us. Today there is a wide range of different meals. The majority is because we can use the slow cooker to cook these meals.  So with further ado we are going to share with you the meals we have been consuming.

Monday-  Salmon Noodles, this is a meal which Joe choose as a result of loving noodles. We did manage to pick up some Salmon reduced in the supermarket. This is the way we manage to keep the meal plan of our weekly shop to under £30 per week. This is a meal which we would not have done before. It is one which we managed to get from a pinch of nom again. I would recommend checking out this website and book if you are looking to eat a little bit more healthy.

Tuesday- Piri Piri Chicken and Rice again this is a meal which Joe has picked for this week. Peri Peri is something which we actually love it is something which I would not have thought of cooking in the slow cooker. We are using chicken thighs which is something we never have. Instead we usually cook with the breast so I am looking forward to cooking with something different. We are actually going to be serving this with rice for something a little bit different.

Wednesday- Mexican Three Bean Taco Bowl, this is something which I decided to choose. This is a meal which does have no meat. As you may remember in January we had a couple of meals which did not feature any meat. I would love to have more of this. We also have some nachos which we need to use up so this will be served with this meal. For sure I think this is going to be one which I am looking forward to the most.  If this is a meal which we enjoy of course, I will be sharing this recipe with you.

Thursday- BBQ Pulled Gammon, you have heard of BBQ pulled pork. However, when I was looking through Pinterest I found this recipe. Gammon is a piece of meat which Joe loves so of course, this is something which we had to try. This is something which we are going to serve with either wedges or chips. I am hoping that this is going to be so tasty because it is a fraction of the price of making pulled pork and we love gammon more.

Friday- Donner Kebab, Fridays we love making fakeaway. Which is a fake takeaway so this week we have opted to make a donner kebab from a pinch of nom of course.This has a lot less calories than a donner kebab would and is not going to feel as greasy.  Making your own of course, is fun and also the fraction of the price a meal from the takeaway would cost you. So this is win win in our eyes.

Saturday- Meatballs and Pasta, we picked up some meatballs a few weeks ago reduced. I also made some and froze them. So I am thinking of getting them out of the freezer and then throwing them together with some pasta and a sauce. I know that this is a meal which Jess will eat without having to be asked twice. I may even throw the boat out and have a garlic bread with it as well. This is going to be a simple meal yet very effective.

Sunday- Pork Steaks In Mushroom Sauce. This is another slow cooker meal because we are in Derby at the Mama Meet Market. So we want something simple and effortless when we get in. I know that no doubt I will be tired because I will have done a lot of walking and talking. This is going to simple and I feel like I am going to serve it with some for of Potato however, I have not decided what yet.

Of course, this is linked up with the lovely Katy. If you are ever looking for meal inspiration she runs a lovely linky. Where a number of bloggers share what meals they are going to be consuming that week. I sometimes get some amazing ideas from it as well.

What meals are you going to be consuming this week?

Meal Inspiration Monday- Shrimp Pad Thai

As you may have seen a few weeks back in my meal plan I made Shrimp Pad Thai.  In this house, we are a huge fan of oriental food. I know the far east is somewhere where Joe would like to visit and I wouldn’t say no to going back.  We have noticed that Thai food can be a pain to get hold of. When it comes to things like takeaways and restaurants. I wanted to be able to consume this food more often so I decided that I was going to look online and see if I could find any recipes.  I managed to hunt down one which made shrimp pad thai. This was something different because we always seem to have a lot of chicken in our meal. This for sure made a change and something which I loved is that it could be made in as little as 25 mins.  And there is not a lot of washing up which I think everyone will agree is a bonus. More so when your cooking from scratch.

Ingredients – Serves 3

For the Pad Thai Stir Fry

110g dry brown rice noodles (I had to use white Asda didn’t stock brown)

2 teaspoons olive oil

225g Shrimp/ Small Prawns

2 Crushed Garlic Cloves

3 Large Eggs

65g Beansprouts

65g Freshly Grated Carrot

2 Large Spring Onions finely chopped

For the Sauce

2 tablespoons fish sauce

1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar

1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce

2 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon honey

1-3 teaspoons chilli garlic sauce

Method

  1. Cook the rice noodles according to package instructions. They should be soft but not mushy. Drain and rinse under cool water.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients: fish sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce, water, 1 tablespoon honey, and 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce.
  3. Heat the oil in a large wok and cook shrimp until just before they turn pink this should be around 2 minutes
  4.  Add the garlic and noodles. Stir continuously to coat the noodles and shrimp with the garlic.
  5. Move the mixture to the side of the pan.  Crack the eggs into the empty side. Break apart the yolk with the spatula and let cook for 30 seconds, until just beginning to set
  6. Stir the egg in with the noodles then in the sauce.
  7. Add the bean sprouts, carrots, and chopped green onions and let cook until the bean sprouts are crisp-tender, about 1 minute.
  8. Serve and enjoy your shrimp pad thai

Have you ever had or made pad thai before?

Meal Inspiration Monday- Sausage and Spinach Pasta Bake

Pasta bake is something which we love in this house.  Jess is well and truly a pasta fiend it is one of her favourite foods.  Pasta bake is something which is so simple to make and something the whole family can consume. There are so many different ways you can make a pasta bake something which we make is sausage and spinach.  This is a recipe which I again found on Pinterest because I was looking for something different.  Using this is a good way to get Jess to eat some of the greens because this can be a pain in young children.  I also like hiding veg because it does mean that Joe eats it. He would avoid fruit and veg if he could, to be honest.

Ingredients – Serves 6 to 8

250g Ricotta

250g Creme Fraiche

1 Egg

250g Parmesan Cheese

Salt and Pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 chopped medium onion

2 thinly sliced garlic cloves

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon roughly chopped fresh oregano

450g Sausage

2 tins chopped tomatoes

450g Pasta

180g Spinach

300g mozzarella thinly sliced

Method

 

  1. In a large bowl, combine the ricotta, creme fraiche, egg and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and black pepper and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onion and cook until softened, about 4 minutes.

3.  Add the garlic, red pepper flakes, and oregano and cook for 2 minutes more.

4. Add the sausage and cook until browned, breaking up the meat with the back of a wooden spoon.

5. Put the tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Season to taste and cook until the sauce has thickened, about 20 minutes.

6. Preheat the oven to 200c

7. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook for 4 minutes, short of al dente according to the package directions.

8.  Save 125ml pasta water

9.  Place spinach in a medium bowl and pour over pasta water to wilt the spinach. Drain and set aside once wilted.

10. Remove the sauce from the heat then stir half of the sauce into the ricotta mixture.

11. Add the pasta and spinach and toss together to coat.

12. Pour the pasta into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish and top with the remaining sauce.

13. Sprinkle the mozzarella and remaining Parmesan over the top and bake until the cheese starts bubbling about 20 minutes.

 

As you can see this is a super easy to make and of course you can leave it when in the oven.  You could switch up the sausage and make it with anything you wanted.  For sure this is a recipe which we have loved and Jess managed to eat it all demanding more. I think this is one which I will be making again it is an easy way to get sausage and spinach consumed. If for some reason we have any of these items left again I make this in a blink of an eye for sure.

 

Have you ever had sausage and spinach pasta bake?

Meal Plan 29th March #13

Another Friday so that must mean that it is time to share with you the meals which we have been consuming this week.  I will warn you now that a lot of the meals we have been having are from a pinch of nom.  I purchased the cookbook when it came out due using a lot of their recipes anyway.  Trying to eat a bit healthier is something which Joe and I are trying to do. We have been feeling the benefits of having more energy.  This week he has been off work which means we have been spending time sorting out the garden and the house. Of course, I am going to be sharing our update very soon. So we have been wanting meals which we can do quickly and also that are going to fill us up. I hope you enjoy seeing what we have been eating and it gives you some inspiration for meals of your own.

Monday-  Salmon Fish Cakes and Wedges. I purchased some Salmon reduced a couple of weeks ago and thought this would be a great way to use it.  Fishcakes are something which I love in the summer to have with a salad. I think it may be something which I will do in the future. This week I will be serving it with wedges because it’s not that warm. I do not think I have ever made fishcakes from scratch but they are something which I am looking forward too.

Tuesday-  Campfire Stew. This is one which is from a pin of nom. A stew will actually fill us up which is what we are looking for this week.  It is something different from what we would normally make. We usually do not have a lot of Gammon in our lives so this will make a change.  I love the idea of putting it in the slow cooker and letting that do all the work. I may share the recipe if this is a very nice recipe which I am sure it is going to be.

Wednesday- Chicken Fajitas Pasta, this is something we have made in the past.  Chicken Fajitas is something which we love it is so amazing and of course, we love pasta. So this is a winning combination for us.  This is super simple to make and you do it in a couple of pans so there is not that much washing up. We did not have to purchase much for this meal which is a huge bonus. I know that I am going to share this recipe very soon because I am sure that it is one which a number of you would enjoy it.

Thursday- Cajun Dirty Rice. This is something which we saw in the book which thought we would adore.  Cajun is one of my actual favourite spices and rice is something which we do not have often. I am sure that this could be a little bit like the spicy rice from Nando’s. This is something which I order on the rare occasion of we go.  Joe helped to choose most of these meals this week. This is a fakeaway for us, I think this is the best way because we are trying to save money and only have one a month at the moment.

Friday- Nacho chicken and jacket potato. Again this is a meal which I have picked up reduced and froze. By the time Friday comes around, I can not be bothered to cook. This is going to be perfect because this is something which we have had in the past. I know I could actually make this myself and this is something which I may do in the future. This is going to be served with a jacket potato because we have a fair amount of them. I may have some mixed veg to go with this but I am unsure yet.

Saturday- Meat and Potato Pasties. This is another recipe which I found in the pinch of nom book. This is something which I am going to be putting in my slow cooker and then have one early in the afternoon. The reason we are having it early is that we are going to see Disney on Ice. I am looking forward to this meal because it is something which I would not have thought about making. Instead, usually, I would have just picked them up in our weekly shop. I think this is one which I am looking forward to so much.  You use torillas because of course these meals are actually low calories.

Sunday- Roast Beef Lunch, Of course, it is Mother’s Day which means we are kind of having an amazing meal. We are hosting my parents and we are having a beef roast dinner which I think Joe is going to be making. I think we are going to be having most of the trimmings and a ton of veg. I am sure we may even splash out and even have a pudding.

Hopefully you have found some inspiration from the meals which we are going to have this week.  As always these posts are part of the meal plan linky ran by the lovely Katy. There is so many of us who join now you are bound to find some meal inspiration.

 

 

What are you going to be doing this Mother’s Day?

Meal Inspiration Monday- Haddock Fish Pie

Fish is not something which we have a lot in this house. However, we do actually have a lot of fish in the freezer so it did seem like a really good time to have more fish.  I know that a lot of people have fish for Good Friday now this Haddock Fish Pie is something which you could make this easter. This actually was actually such an easy meal to make there is not a lot of preparation. Bonus because it does mean that this can be consumed as one of your midweek meals instead of having the same old boring things. I did not even have to purchase many ingredients for this I managed to have most of them already. I found this recipe on Pinterest if this is not something you are using you sure need to be. A lot of my inspiration from there and have found myself trying a wider range of foods.  Anyway on to the Haddock Fish Pie recipe so you can make it for yourself.

Ingredients- Serves 4

1 tbsp olive oil

1 leek, sliced

30g flour

300ml Milk

125g cooked prawns

Salt and Pepper

4 x 110g smoked haddock fillets

3 Large potatoes, peeled, par-boiled and sliced

Method

1. Preheat oven to 200c

2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the leeks and fry for 2-3 minutes, until soft.

3.  Add the flour, stir well and cook for 1-2 minutes.

4. Remove the pan from the heat and gradually stir in the milk.

5. Return to the heat and cook, stirring well, until the sauce has thickened. Simmer gently for five minutes.

6.  Stir in the prawns and season with salt and pepper.

7. Place half the sauce into a pie dish.

8. Place the haddock fillets on top, then spoon over the remaining sauce.

9. Top with the sliced potatoes and season with some more freshly ground black pepper.

10. Place the dish on a baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes, until the potatoes are golden and the fish is completely cooked through.

As you can see this is such a simple meal to do it only takes about 10-15 mins prep.  Then it is as simple as sticking it in the oven and you can forget about it which is a bonus because you can get on with other things.

 

 

 

 

 

Meal Plan 22nd March #12

Another week which we have smashed which is amazing because this means that Joe is off for two weeks now. He is taking easter leave early instead of the school ones and it means that we are hopefully going to be able to smash the garden renovations. Fingers crossed that we get amazing weather to be able to do it as we have a fair few days work to do. I am hoping to share the transformation of the garden with you.   So this week has been all about quick food because I have been trying to put the hours.  Meaning I do not have to do as much work when Joe is actually off. I am aiming to do half days however, I am not sure how possible this is going to be.  Today I am going to share with you the meals which we have been consuming.  I hope you enjoy seeing what we have been having.

Monday- Sausage Casserole, this is something which we choose because we have some sausages in the freezer.  I thought I would make this into a casserole the weather has not been amazing and this does mean that I want some more hearty meals.  So I think that this casserole should be able to fill a hole and keep me warm. I have some potatoes which I am going to use and make some mash to go with the casserole. I hope this is going to be a nice meal because I have not had a casserole for a long time. This should be so simple because it is all done in the slow cooker.

Tuesday- Hunters Chicken and Wedges, this is something which I love to order when we go out for a meal. This has been something which I have said that I am going to make for a long time however, I have just not got around to doing this. I am even going to make my own BBQ I am interested to see how this one comes out. Hopefully, it does come out very nice because it does mean that I can eat in more than always having to eat out.  This is going to be one of the meals which I think I am going to enjoy the most this week. It does not look that hard to make which is always a bonus for me during the week. I love simple meals which I do not have to think about too much.

Wednesday- Shrimp Pad Thai, this is something which I have never made before. However,  Thai food is something which I love, to be honest, I love most of Asain Cusine.  I want to try and see if I can make this at home because the only place where I see Pad Thai is at restaurants. Where we live I do not think we can get pad thai delivered. Speaking to Joe this is one of the meals which he is looking forward to the most.  Maybe because is something different from what we normally have.   If this works I will be sharing this on one of the meal inspiration Mondays because I am sure this is something which a lot of us would love to make.

Thursday-  Chicken, Leek and Brie Pie, this is something which I have not made before. I rarely have pie but this is something which I have been fancying for a while. Hopefully, the warmer weather is going to come very soon which means that it is going to be too warm to have pie. This is one of the reasons why I am making it now before this does actually happen.  I did actually find the recipe on Pinterest for sure this is something which I would not have made.  For some reason I did not think that brie would I would have used cheddar but for sure I am looking forward to this. According to Joe, this is not one which he is looking forward to as much as other meals.

Friday- Mexican Burrito Bowl. This is a meal which we were meant to have a couple of weeks ago and I think last week. However, this is one which we have not got around to doing this.  The ingredients are all still in date which means that we can still make this.  It is a bonus because it does mean that we do not have to pick up anything else.  Mexican food is something we both love and this sounds like it could be such a tasty meal. Again I will be sharing the recipe if I think it is worth it. Burritos are amazing but are something which we do not consume a lot at home because of how hard they can be to make.

Saturday- Cheese Burger Meatballs and Pasta this again is something which I found on Pinterest. This is something which made me so curious because of the fact that it sounds so different. I have had meatballs and pasta before but I do not think I have really ever had cheesy meatballs.  Of course, this is something which Jess is going to adore. Give her anything which is pasta based and this is something which she is going to love. If she really behaves her self she may actually be able to have some garlic bread which again is something which she is back love.  This again is another Pinterest meal. I see to be getting more and more off there now.

Sunday- Chicken Korma Curry having a curry is something which we have not done with Jess for a long time. We have chosen to have a Korma even though I know she is able to handle some more spicy curries.  We are going to make this in the slow cooker because this does mean that I do get a break from the cooking. I am unsure what we are planning on Sunday yet so having it in the slow cooker is amazing.  Hopefully, this is something which Jess is going to finish a whole plate of. I am going to serve this with rice and also nan bread as well.

There is a range of meal this week some of them so simple for us to cook.  The slow cooker is going to be used for the first time in a long time. I have actually linked up with Katy Kicker meal plan because this is where I get some of my meal inspiration from so I have a wide range of different meals.

I hope you have got some inspiration from these meals? What are you having this week?

Meal Inspiration Monday- Paprika Chicken Goujons

Sometimes we all want a simple meal which the whole family are going to eat. Of course, you always have those meals for emergencies in the freezer. I wondered if I could make one of those meal chicken goujons from scratch because this then means I know what is in them. Plus they also seemed a really easy meal to make and could be frozen for when we needed them as well.  Today I am going to share with you the recipe which I think is originally a Hello Fresh meal to make these paprika chicken goujons.

Ingredients- Serves 2

2 Chicken Breasts

Glug Of Oil

24g Plain Flour

1/2 Lime Zest

17g Paprika

10g Dried Thyme

Method
  1. Lay one of the chicken breasts between two sheets of clingfilm and bash until 2cm thick. I did it with a rolling pin, to be honest, it helps get rid of any anger.  Do this for all chicken breasts
  2. Cut the flattened chicken breast into 6 to 7 long strips
  3. Put a glug of oil in large frying on a medium to high heat. Let it get really hot
  4.  Put the flour in a mixing bowl with the lime zest, paprika and dried thyme.  Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Mix together really well then add the chicken strips. Toss with your hands to ensure the chicken is well coated in the seasoning flour.
  6. Once the oil is hot add half the chicken to the pan.
  7. Cook until golden all over this should be 3-4 minutes.
  8. Then cook the other half and serve with wedges, chips or salad.

Hopefully, you found this very interesting because I know Goujons are something which a lot of people go for when they need a quick meal.

What are your go-to quick meals?

Meal Plan 15th March #11

Today I am sharing with you the meal plan for this week. There is a lot of meals which I have been featured before. I  have four nights this week where I am having to eat alone. Joe is away and Jess eats at nursery. Which means I get to select meals which I have already prepared in the freezer.  A bonus of him away does mean that I am going to have some more of that elusive freezer space.  Saying that I do keep purchasing reduced stickered items for a time when he is away.  I hope you enjoy reading about what kind of food I have been eating this week.

Monday- Chicken Goujons, Wedges and Spaggethi Hoops, something so simple but effective.  I actually made the chicken goujons way back sometime last year and made too many so froze them. I thought this week would be great to dig them out and consume.  We have no chips in so wedges are going to be served.  I think I prefer wedges anyway.

Tuesday- Beef Casserole and Mash this is something which I have frozen as well. I only had enough for one person.  The weather is meant to be pretty rubbish this week so I think this is going to be appreciated.  I have some potatoes in which I am going to turn into Mash Potatoes and serve. Something warm and comforting for tonight.

Wednesday- Lasagna and Salad maybe Garlic Bread. To be honest, could I have a week where I do not consume pasta I do not think I could. There are so many little tubs of lasagna in my freezer that I need to get some removed.  So I decided that I was going to have this for a meal this week.  I have some salad because I am trying to be a good girl and eat a bit better again at the moment.

Thursday- Mediterranean Fish and Wedges. There is actually one left in the packet which means that it makes sense for me to finish them off. I would actually purchase this again I know it is a birds eye one but it can be expensive if you do not purchase them on offer. I reckon I will end up serving this meal with mixed veg so that there is some greens in the meal.

Friday- Fish Pie, this is a recipe which I found on Pinterest I was looking for a fish dish. We have some to use up and I came across a fish pie now this is something which we have not had in the longest time. I think this is going to be something which we just have on it’s own hopefully it is going to be very filling. If this is something which I enjoy I will end up sharing the recipe with you on Monday.

Saturday- Pasta Bake, I have some creme fresh which I need to use up from a previous week. Of course, this meant I just went to pinterest to see what I could make with it. Then I did find a pasta and spinach pasta bake this is something that I would not have thought about before. I am looking forward to this because it is something different. Spinach is something which I am unsure if Jess would eat but because it is with pasta she should eat this. I will maybe serve this with garlic bread because we have a spare one in the fridge so I may use this.

Sunday- Sweet Chilli Prawns and Noddles. Noodles are something which I could consume very often. We had some prawns in which I fancied using up this does sound like something a little bit different to what I would normally make. I do not think I have every heated up sweet chilli sauce and I am sure this is something which I have to do for this meal. Hopefully, this is going to be a meal which Jess is going to end up eating. I may have to purchase something in case she does not like it at all.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what meals we have been consuming this week.  As always these posts are part of the meal plan linky ran by the lovely Katy. There is so many of us who join now you are bound to find some meal inspiration.

Why are you having for your meals this week?
