I still rely on a weekly menu plan, it helps me to plan my supermarket shopping list sensibly with the knowledge that I have taken stock of cupboards, fridge and freezer and it is much easier to sit in a relaxed fashion and plan the meals for the week ahead rather than panic on a daily basis and resort to pasta 7 nights a week!
Our plan for this week was/is
Sunday: Beefy goodness casserole with roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and vegetables (there was enough casserole left to make a pie so that is now in the freezer for another day)
Monday: Homemade lasagne
Tuesday: Steamed white fish, vegetables, mash and parsley sauce
Wednesday: Tuna pasta bake
Thursday: Homemade soup and bread (carrot and coriander this week)
Friday: Chip night – homemade – of course.
All good food but no new, exciting dishes that will be worth putting a recipe up for. I must get back in to the habit of trying to make one or two new dishes a week. It is nice to blog about new ideas and it is easy to get stuck in a rut with menu planning and fall back on old favourites all the time.
I hope the working week has started well for you all.
