Another week has passed which means that it is time to share another weeks meal plan. This one of course has Valentine’s Day included so it does have a few special meals in. This week we did go slightly over the budget which I like to spend on food however, we do have some meals for next week planned. Of course, Joe is still home which mean the meal plan is for a couple of people. I hope you manage to get some inspiration from this meal plan.
Monday- Gammon, Egg and Chips. We actually has purchased the Gammon last week as part of an offer. We also had another piece of gammon in the freezer which we thought would be good to use up because then we can have some more space. Eggs are something which we always have in and I think I am going to make some homemade chips with potatoes which we already have in.
Tuesday- Smoked Haddock, Potatoes and Mixed Veg, I was actually unwell on Friday which meant this was a meal which we had not consumed. So we do want to get this consumed before it goes out of date. We have a ton of potatoes which we can use with this meal and also some mixed veg will be served with it. This should be a nice clean meal which is something I am trying to do more and more.
Wednesday- Pork Schnitzel, Potatoes and Mixed Veg, this is a meal which Joe decided he fancied after he saw it in another cook book. This is not something I have had for a long time so this is going to be a change. It is at least a few years since I had it. I know we are going to be having potatoes and mixed veg again but this is something which we like so will both enjoy.
Thursday- Valentine’s Meal Deal, Sirloin Steak, Jacket Potatoes. We are having a three course meal deal which we purchased from Asda. We are having prawns, sirloin steak with jacket potatoes and garlic mushrooms. Of course , we have cheesecake for desert. This is something which we may end up having another evening. This all came with a bottle of wine which I will end up having another day. It is a school night after all.
Friday- Cajun Chicken, Potatoes and Mixed Veg.We have a some Cajun spices in which could do with been used up. We have had it a while and I thought a good way to use this in a meal was to rub into the chicken. This should give it a very nice flavour which is key.. Then I am going to serve this with potatoes and mixed veg which seems to be the staple of this meal plan this week.
Saturday- Beef Stronganoff and Rice, this is another meal which we have not had for a long time. I do not think I have actually ever made this meal which is going to be a challenge for me. I do like picking up new meals. This is going to be served with rice in order to make sure that some of the sauce is absorbed. This is a meal which Jess has never tried so I am hoping it is one which she loves to consume.
Sunday- Lasagna and Garlic Bread, this is a meal which I really fancy. We have not had for a couple of weeks and I fancy it. It is proper comfort food for me and I am still loving that. I know that Jess is going to eat this because she has in the past. I actually have everything I have in for this meal which is always a bonus. All I need to do is get is the garlic bread towards the end of the week. I am looking forward to this a lot.
Of course this meal plan is part of the meal plan linky ran by the lovely Katy Kicker. This is an amazing place to get some inspiration for new meal ideas and it is somewhere where I get my inspiration from too.
What are you consuming this week for your meals?
