Meal Planning Monday (12th January 2015)

Good morning!

Hope you’re all having a great start to 2015?

Day 12 of #DryJanuary and I am going strong! That might not sound like much but I had got into a real habit of drinking a glass of wine everyday over the past few months and knew I needed to break that so I thought a month of abstinence would help to break the cycle. Some days are easier than others! Had a delicious Chinese takeaway last night and a glass of red would have gone perfectly with it but I had to settle for 7UP! I have to say though, I am not yet feeling any of the proclaimed health benefits and I am certainly not sleeping better like they promised I would!

We had a bumper week on #mealplanningmonday last week with 40 people joining in and I tried to get around and comment on every single post. I hope I achieved it, sorry if I missed you! I’ve got a few admin chores to catch up on today, I know some of you have requested access to the Pinterest board and I’m on that today. AND the badge, that’s been on my things to do list for ever but I will sort out the HTML badge for Meal Planning Monday this week too.

So food, we’re a bit all over the place this week but here’s what some of us are eating this week.

Cheese & Crackers & Chocolate (Mr M is away & friend is coming round for a chinwag)
Buffalo Chicken Chilli
Cheese & Bacon Pasta Bake
Hoisin Prawns & Rice
Pizza (not sure what toppings yet)
Gammon, Pineapple, Eggs and Chips

I blame two of last weeks meal planners for the gammon, I haven’t stopped thinking about it!

Okay meal planners, it’s now your turn. If you want a recap of where to find #mealplanningmonday all over the t’internets, the details are on last week’s post which you can find here.

I’ve still working hard to get more joiners and would like to get some more people talking about #mealplanningmonday and joining in during 2015 – all RT’s and shares on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, the dreaded Google+ etc would be greatly appreciated!

  1. Well done with your #DryJanuary. I am going dry this month also for the Cancer Research Dryathlon and you are right it is a lot harder than first anticipated…shamefully I almost caved on Saturday night! x

  2. I did the Dryathalon last year for the same reason, it’s too easy to get into that routine of a glass of wine to wind down. I’m having a dry January this year too but that’s due to being 5 months pregnant rather than anything else! The meal plan sounds yum!

  3. Well done on your #DryJanuary! I’m not much of a drinker these days, I think I had two glasses of fizz over Christmas & New Year and that was only to be polite haha. I’m not allowed booze on my new diet/lifestyle anyway, not until I have lost the weight! x

  4. Brilliant work on your #DryJanuary. I should do the same with chocolate.. maybe not, ha! Some brilliant meals there, can I ask what’s buffalo chicken chill? Using chicken instead of beef? I’ll be sharing everywhere as usual x

  5. Gosh well done on getting to day 12!! I am trying to be more conscious of alcohol consumption – its too easy on these cold winter nights to snuggle up on the sofa with a glass of red but other than last Tuesdays wine with my Dad I think I’ve only had to vodka and cokes – though that is also because max strength lempsip has been my choice of drinks!

    Love your plan – except for the pineapple, you can happily keep that!

  6. Well done on the dry January. I am definitely not having one of those (although am aiming not to drink until Friday now). Love the sound of the Buffalo Chicken Chilli. And the cheese/crackers/chocolate combination too!

  7. Well done on the Dry January – my husband is also taking part which means I’ve only had one glass of wine (to finish the open bottle) since New Year! Your meal plan sounds lovely hun – I love the sound of Hoi Sin prawns x

  8. I just realised that I never got round to commenting last week – sorry xx I wanted to say thank you for letting me join in and well done with #DryJanuary xx
