Meal Planning Monday 2015 - Week 27

Finally a week that should be a lot quieter - but I will probably jinx it by saying that! Lately I've been out a lot and had to work late a bit and we've been away or busy at the weekends. This week I've just got my cake decorating class; no social events planned (which sounds depressing but is actually lovely to have a solid run of nights in at home!) and also no plans for the weekend. Other than the million and one things that need doing around the house and garden of course!

I've put some of the things that were on last week's menu down for this week as I didn't make them last week. Someone who shall remain nameless (though it wasn't me, and it wasn't the cat...) left the freezer open slightly overnight so I had to throw away or cook all the food that was in the door or at the front! Luckily the rest of it was OK but at the weekend we were eating things that had to be used up rather than the meals that I had planned.

Lunch: pasta salad or possibly out with a friend
Dinner: sandwich - at cake decorating class

Lunch: sandwich - only have 10 mins before going to the school where I volunteer
Dinner:  Deliciously Ella's butternut squash risotto with grilled chicken for me; gammon and mashed potatoes for him

Lunch: salad from Inspiralized book: apple, watercress, gorgonzola and pecan
Dinner: BBQ as the weather is meant to be amazing: sausages with some sort of salad side dish

Lunch: leftover salad from BBQ or sandwich
Dinner: may be slightly late home; he can cook us something easy from the freezer

Dinner: a variation on Deliciously Ella's brazil nut and rocket pesto pasta; spaghetti carbonara for him

Lunch: waffles - using sweet potato from me (from my new Inspiralized recipe book)
Dinner: BBQ: I want to have fish this time and will try something like this recipe. Burgers for my boyfriend and his mum.

Lunch: bacon sandwich for him; lemon garlic broccoli with bacon from Inspiralized for me
Dinner: Hopefully BBQ again, this time I want to try doing pizza!


  1. I'm definitely going to get myself a spiralizer, I love the sound of most of the recipes and would be a bit healthier.
    Yep, fish on the BBQ is on the list for us too, sick of meat all the time and I've seen loads of great recipes. So here's hoping we all have a sunny week! Enjoy ;)

  2. Looks delicious - I like the sound of Brazil nut and rocket pesto pasta. Enjoy the hot weather & BBQ!

  3. Mmm BBQs sound delicious, fish is such a great idea. Hope you have a lovely (calmer!) week xx

  4. Looks like a fab meal plan. I really fancy trying the inspiralized book - would you recommend it? Looks like a really tasty week with loads of variety. Have a great week. x
