Meal Planning Monday (29th February 2016)

I have been literally the World’s Worst Blogger recently. Despite having a ton of things to blog and all good intentions – my mojo has just upped and disappeared in February. We’ve been pretty busy decorating all the upstairs bedrooms which has meant some SERIOUS decluttering has had to take place, and that, coupled with work has meant by the time evening – and my blogging spot – comes around, there’s not much oomph left in me.

Other than to catch up with Nashville – has anyone seen this? I am late to the party with this but I am binge-watching and totally hooked. It definitely indulges my love of trashy country music.

What else has been going on? OH YES. Do you remember those soul-sucking exams I took in late 2015? Well I only went and freaking passed them and despite feeling like I sucked on my assignments (I did just scrape through) I managed to do better in my exams and managed to pass the entire diploma with a Credit. Go me!

Oh, and I got a kitten. Slightly less work than a toddler but trying all the same.

I’m really hope to regain my mojo,  I have still been cooking and meal planning and want to do more but energy levels are low. I really need to lose weight and get more active, I don’t think this is helping my sloth-like existence right now.

Here’s my meal plan!

Jacket potatoes with chicken kiev and salad
Chilli con carne with rice and tortilla chips
Spaghetti bolognese
Salmon en croute with baby potatoes and peas
Pizzas and salad
Sausage, mash and Yorkshire puds

There you go. Not the most exciting or inspiration of meal plans but it’s a meal plan all the same!

  1. It’s no wonder you haven’t had time to blog, sounds like you’ve got loads going on. A good boxset is a great reason to shut out the world and self-indulge for a while too. Nashville is on my list to watch.
    Good you’re keeping up with the meal planning though. It works wonders on saving money and waste. This week we’re having;

    Chicken Kiev (snap), salad and pasta or rice
    Sticky Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry with white rice
    Cod fillets with crunchy sundried tomato topping and roast Mediterranean veg and new potatoes
    Homemade Chicken Tikka with pitta bread, leftover roast veg and zingy salsa
    Semi-Homemade Pizza (we’re using supermarket fresh pizza bases – yummy, cheap and quicker than making our own) and salad
    Homemade slow cooked Beef Rendang curry with flatbreads

    I’m also making a new batch of Fruit Leather tonight. It’s healthy and the kids (and I) love it. A great way of using up uneaten fruit and letting them have something sweet that isn’t full of crap.
