It’s been a while since I’ve taken part in Meal Planning Monday. We’ve been incredibly busy and eating out a lot so it had seemed pretty pointless sharing takeaway and restaurant suggestions. Take last week: on Monday I went home to Stevenage for a church event, Tuesday I was out at drinks with work, Wednesday was the cinema with a friend, Thursday and Friday we spent at home but then the weekend was a busy one seeing Jon’s family on the Saturday and mine on the Sunday. Not a lot of time for cooking…my kitchen must be feeling neglected!
This week is looking to be much more calm. I’m at a Christmas Press Event on Thursday but other than that I intend to be at home most evenings! This is what I will be cooking…
Meal Planning Monday
Easy Roasted Tomato Soup – after a few health issues and hectic home lives, we had fallen off of the healthy eating bandwagon but fresh soups will help us get back on track!
Spaghetti and Veggie Meatballs – a simple dinner that never disappoints.
Chilli Con Carne served with rice, salsa and fresh avocado. Yum!
Out at press event – I’ll probably nip to Hummus Bros on my way to the event.
Lentil Lasagne – this is one of our favourites so the perfect Friday night treat.
Takeout – we are at a gig Saturday evening (NOFX and Alkaline Trio if you are interested) so we’ll grab something naughty on our way.
Hot-dogs and Hamburgers – Sunday evening we are going to Alexandra Palace Drive in Movies to see The Goonies! I’m super excited about ordering hot-dogs and popcorn from the waitresses on roller skates.
Have you planned your meals for this week? Ours actually seems to be quite carb-heavy which I wasn’t expecting. I must try harder to plan healthy dinners! If you have written up your meal plan please do share int he comments below.
