Meal Planning 2013 - week 31

I shouldn't be surprised that I put on weight last week given I had chips and doughnuts in Brighton, a pub lunch with my boyfriend and a BBQ at my boss's house in the space of three days! This week is going to end with a lot of food as well so I need to be careful in the meantime.

Breakfast yogurt
Lunch Herby chicken, spiced prawn and mango salad from Giraffe recipe book
Dinner With my boyfriend - chicken fajitas

Breakfast cereal
Lunch Vietnamese chicken and prawn salad from Giraffe recipe book
Dinner scampi and Slimming World chips

Breakfast yogurt
Lunch Thai beef and mint salad from Giraffe book
Dinner Out at Science Museum lates with some friends -probably eating at Byron burger first

Breakfast cereal
Lunch sandwich or wrap
Dinner Easy Chinese chicken from The Slow Cooker book p.65

Breakfast yogurt
Lunch Sandwich or wrap
Dinner Lamb hotpot - Tesco Finest, not something I would usually buy but it was reduced from £3 to 45p :-)

I'm really looking forward to this weekend as my boyfriend and I are taking part in the Aston Martin Centenary Rally to celebrate a hundred years of the car marque.
Breakfast We'll be having breakfast at Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire, the location used in Goldfinger (where they play golf), Bridget Jones (where she and Daniel go on a mini break) and Layer Cake (where several scenes are shot including the ending).
Lunch We drive via Newbury and have lunch at the racecourse.
Dinner The thing that excites me most about the rally (apart from being part of a line of 100 Aston Martins driving 100 miles) is that it finishes in Wilton House. I'm actually from Wilton and my parents still live there, so I've been to Wilton House several times before and it has something of a special meaning for me. We're staying with my parents tonight while the other 99 drivers and passengers will presumably be in hotels :-)

Breakfast Probably crumpets, at my parents
Lunch At the Wilton House Classic Cars event as my boyfriend's car will form part of a timeline of 100 Aston Martins including as many different models of the car as they can find. His is one of only two Vantage V8s that have been selected to participate :-)
Dinner Probably something quick as I don't know what time I will get home.
