|COOK|meal planning Monday - 27 July 2014

Stayed on track 100% this week, except a few snack changes.  We had no plans for the weekends meals, so we enjoyed 2 lunches out, one a surprise treat from the MIL.  Very little waste, half a loaf of bread which was already stale when we bought it (grrrr) and a bag of manky salad, both of which went to the chickens which meant saving on chook food, I really don't mind that kind of waste!  Also had to throw out 2 sausages, very annoyed by this because it was purely bad planning on my behalf and I should have popped them straight into the freezer.

Talking of manky salad I've joined a new (to me) challenge over at vegplotting.blogspot.co.uk it's called 52 week salad challenge and challenges you to grow or forage something to form a salad each week throughout the year, I must admit I'm actually just planning to grown 'something' not necessarily salad but that's the gist.  I started this weekend with some salad leaves, basil and cress and of course what's already growing! Can't wait to let you know how I get on!!

So I guess onto this weeks plan:-
Monday - chicken kiev, sauté potatoes and french beans (just realised how very continental this sounds!! Nut cutlet for me)
Tuesday - chip night
Wednesday - puttanesca bolognese, look out for the recipe on the blog next week! (Lentil version for me)
Thursday - out for dinner with friends
Friday - teens are back for the weekend, sausage, mash and honey & lemon glazed carrots (quorn sausage for me)
Saturday - fish finger and chip butties with mushy peas (just chip butties and mushy peas for me )
Sunday - pizza's
