Meal Planning Monday (20th January 2014)


Morning!  Is January not like the longest month EVER? It just drags, and drags. Still at least it’s not been too cold, though I would truly like the rain to DO one!

I was struggling on inspiration for meals this week, so I turned to my Pinterest boards as I am forever saving things there and never going back to them. The result is tasty but not too healthy! Oh well. I planned to lose lots of weight this year before my two big holidays but I struggle to give up nice food – think I’m going to just have to try moving more!

Last week we got 38 people joining in with meal planning which was 3 more than the previous week! We’ve also had more joiners on the Facebook group which is great. I love looking through everyone’s plans.

Here’s how mine is shaping up this week;

French bread pizza
Cheesy Enchiladas
BLT Salad
Creamy blue cheese pasta
Roast chicken & trimmings
Soup & baguettes

I’m not sure what the soup will be yet, it will be homemade though and will no doubt depend on what is left lurking in the fridge near the end of the week! Could be blue cheese could be chicken!

So, as always it’s now over to you guys! If you’re new to my blog or #mealplanningmonday all you have to do is this – write a blog post about your meal plan for the week and submit the URL of your post using the Linkytools below. If you’ve not got a blog but want to join in, that’s fine – just leave a comment below telling us what you’re planning this week.  Any questions, just holler at me via email (in the contact page) or on Twitter @madamding.

Don’t forget to join our Facebook group and check out our Pinterest board for more inspiration! We’ve got 670 followers so far on our new board and I’ve started pinning some of your recipes as I come across them!

Have a great week everyone and thanks for joining in.

  1. This month is far too long and I agree the rain can do one big style or we’ll all end up having webbed feet! Why not try a leek and butter bean soup. I made it last week and the eldest liked it!


  2. Hi – this is the first time I have linked up! Meal planning my way through 2014 on a very limited budget and sharing recipes and ideas too 🙂 Look forward to seeing what everyone else is planning too! x

  3. Looking good! Especially the creamy blue cheese pasta – love blue cheesiness but never get to eat it as I’m the only one who likes it!
