The Plan B Meal Plan

 

I was full of optimism last Sunday when I wrote about banishing the winter lurgies……Monday at 5am we all came down with a tummy bug. Big ‘yuck’ for about 3 days. But that was last week and I’ve decided to take some positives from it;

1) We all had unexpected extra time at home together as a family…..though spent separately in different bathrooms

2) Our food budget for the week was not dented one bit and I had lots of produce to ‘carry forward’ for this week

3) I haven’t weighed this little since I was 23 years old. Every cloud and all that.

So, as we have been somewhat food deprived this past week, I’ve decided to try and add a little variety into this weeks menu as a plan b modification what we should have had this week. Make no mistake, I’m no Delia but I do try to experiment as much as I can whilst ensuring our food is, on the whole, edible for the 1 year old too. No recipes are original, pretty much all are plagiarised from experts with far more skill than me  So here it is,

Sunday

Spicy Cajun chicken, smashed sweet potato & fresh corn salsa (Jamie Oliver’s 15 min meals)

Monday

Homemade salmon fishcakes, asparagus & peas (Ella’s Kitchen)

Tuesday

Pizza & Rocket Salad (cheat day)

Wednesday

Punchy pork hotpot with apples (Ella’s kitchen)

Thursday

Chicken rarebit, roasted sweet potatoes & cherry tomatoes & wilted spinach

Fingers crossed I manage to make/eat all of the above, have a full week at work and perhaps (I’m pushing my luck now) get down to the gym. Although my iphone has died today (and now I haven’t back it up for ages, aaarrggghh!) I still remain optimistic that things will improve and we’ll be on an even keel (whatever that is) very soon. I’ll keep you posted!
