I’m going to attempt to share my weekly meal plans with you in order to 1) remember to complete one every week – it makes my afternoons so much less stressful and makes shopping easier AND 2) perhaps inspire you to try something new and yummy!
I so love trying new recipes and cooking yummy things for my family. I’m leaning towards easier meals at the moment with the new bubby. It’s Murphy’s Law that he will need a feed right before dinner, so I need things I can whip up quickly, and which won’t be spoilt if I need to step away for half an hour.
I’m shopping online at the moment, as life has been a bit crazy. It does make planning easier, and I don’t tend to drop as many naughty things in the trolley!
Here is my plan for this week:
MONDAY: spinach and ricotta canneloni
TUESDAY: a gorgeous friend is dropping over a meal
WEDNESDAY: beef and mushroom pies (I usually make this up as I go with lots of vegies and a mashed potato topping)
THURSDAY: lamb with lentil and feta fritters (from the most recent Donna Hay magazine)
FRIDAY: spaghetti marinara (I cheat and use the marinara mix from the supermarket deli with a yummy tomato, garlic and wine sauce)
SATURDAY: chicken and antipasto pasta
SUNDAY: pumpkin soup with crusty bread (I might use this recipe from Taste – sounds yummy!)
Are you trying something new this week?
