Weekly Meal Plan 09/01

8 January, 2017 4 Comments

Meal planning time! This week we are back at school and work so I need to be super organised because we’re all going to be a bit over-tired by the time evenings have rolled around. So hello slow cooker and very quick mid-week meals. This year I am also trying to challenge myself too. I have literally hundreds of cookbooks and they don’t get used enough, so I’m going to use a recipe from one of the books during the week. I may blog about it, I probably won’t, but it would be nice if I could!

Monday Rainbow trout, sweet potato fries, pickled carrots and cucumber.

Tuesday Turkey mince bolognaise, cooked in the slow cooker

Wednesday Some kind of vegetable tart, cooked on puff pastry.

Thursday Jacket potato and beans (maybe tuna or prawns, depends what the kiddos fancy)

Friday Lahmacun, from Claire Thomson’s The Five O’Clock Apron.

What are you cooking this week? Why don’t you join in below (link up starts at 6am Monday)?

    Oooh the rainbow trout sounds lovely! I am the same as you, I have so many cookbooks that I simply do not use enough. I am trying to use at least one a week, fingers crossed, every week this year x #mealplanningmonday

    I am another one who doesn’t use my cookbooks enough. It is so easy to rely on the same things or use websites now. Sounds like a yummy week, slow cooked bolognese is a favourite here.

    I like the sounds of the veg tart – I have a pack of puff pastry in the freezer that needs using, so might give this a go in the next week or so with some cherry tomatos etc x

    Love a good puff pastry tart! So quick and simple. I’d never heard of lahmacun so thanks for bringing it to my attention, looks like something we’d love in the house. Hope you enjoy your week’s eating!
