Meal Planning Mondays

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.

    • Hi Emma! Thanks for stopping by. I am feeling pretty positive about our choices this week. Hopefully those dinners combined with a couple of evening jogs in the sunshine will have us feeling fantastic 😀 I’m so excited about the drive in movie. It sounds awesome doesn’t it? I think it might become a new favourite hobby of mine…

  • Looks like quite a good week for food, I attempted to plan my meals out before, but work meant that went out the window pretty quickly

    • Thanks Stephen! I know that feeling. We try to have at least half our options easy things like soup now to try and get around pesky work schedules!

  • Mmm that soup sounds delicious 🙂 hope you have a good week, Hummus Bros sounds like a place I’d like to try! Xx

    • Hi Alice thanks for stopping by. Hummus Bros is ace! They serve a bowl of hummus with all sorts of interesting toppings, braised meats, roasted veggies, falafel, fava beans. Oh and with pita and tabbouleh too. Yum! I’m glad you like the soup too. It’s a favourite in our house!
