Meal Planning Monday - Week 28

My house-buying process is now into its fifth month and still no idea of when we will be able to exchange or move, despite having no chain on either end... It's incredibly frustrating but because we hope the end is in sight, we have started packing. Which means a lot of my recipe books, my slow cooker and various cake decorating supplies are already packed up and sealed in boxes! 
I am now making a conscious effort not to buy any more food and use up what is in the freezer, which is also a bit annoying as I have finally bought my first car and have a newfound freedom - I can drive to supermarkets, and don't have to shop in convenience-sized stores any more! Many a recipe has had to be abandoned as my local Co-op or Sainsbury's Local hasn't got the ingredients but now I can drive to a huge Sainsbury's, Tesco, Asda, Morrison's and Lidl, all within about 15 minutes (sadly no Waitrose around here that I'm aware of)- at least once I can once I get the hang of parking in a busy car park! 
But for now, I'm going to have to stop myself from filling the freezer purely because I've now got masses of choice and really make sure I use up what I already have, as the freezer will need to be switched off before we move.

  Cod with risotto for me, spicy turkey breast with chips for him. My take on an Italian tiramisu for dessert (which I will blog about soon).

  Out at a friend's 

Brazilian chicken I had on the meal plan for last week but didn't make

chicken fajitas for him, prawn in a white/cheese sauce enchilada for me, with veg

burger and chips

lunch: butternut squash soup for me, tomato soup for him

dinner: lamb with sweet potatoes for me, steak for him

Sunday lunch: baked potatoes
Dinner: pork chop with apple sauce and roast potatoes
