Menu planning 26 August - 1 September

We have visitors this week, so although this is the plan, it may have to change to accommodate them - I know the little girl doesn't eat tomato, but I'm not sure if there are other things to avoid.

Monday  Salmon
Tuesday  Not stuffed mushrooms
Wednesday  Coconut chicken curry
Thursday  Shepherd's pie
Friday  Fish chowder  I add shredded cabbage to the original recipe
Saturday  fresh beef burgers
Sunday  Pulled pork

School is back next week, so I need to start getting organised with lunch plans in advance

Menu planning - 19 - 25 August 2013

Well, that last week didn't really go to plan, as my men folk took it in turns to be ill!

This week is one where people are coming and going, and I have to think about how many people will be in each evening.  This is the first stab at a plan, but it may change!

Monday - Salmon
Tuesday - Citrus pork chops
Wednesday - Coconut turkey stew
Thursday (two) - freezer? I know that there was a box with two portions of something!
Friday (only me) - something from freezer, probably beef pumpkin roast leftovers
Saturday (three) - Honey apple ginger pork
Sunday (three) - something really simple as we have to be out at 7am, probably Meatza

My target this week is to try and load up some recipes and photos of things that we have adapted, as it is good to know what something looks like!

Menu planning 5 - 11 August

Well, my husband and boys have gone off to SAGGA camp (Scout and Guide Graduate Association), so I have the house to myself!

My target this week is to freezer dive every morning, so that by the time they come back the freezers are ready to be defrosted and then a big Tesco delivery to restock things.

I know that I have some chicken dishes that I bought in the Asda reduced section and there are a few single portion pots that are leftovers from the odd meal when a child was missing, so I'm sure that there will be some variety.

I'd also like to try out a few breakfast variations to get some ideas for school mornings - especially things that can be cooked in bulk and reheated in individual portions to speed things up.
