Menu planning - 9 - 15 May

A busy week that started with a party for the teen in rural Gloucesteshire - the kind accessed by a single track road! Unfortnately a 1am pick up does not lead to a productive day, although we did manage to get his prom suit bought. Still playing catch up to finish all the other things that are needed at the beginning of the week

Half term here, although as he is on study leave that runs into next week too.

Monday - Tuna

Tuesday - Caramel apple pork chops

WednesdayCoconut chicken curry

Thursday - Ribs (found in Asda!)

Friday - Fish pie

Saturday - Asian meatballs

Sunday - Coconut curry pork

Menu planning 19 - 25 May

So, this is the last week of compulsory school until September, from Friday the boy is only in on the days he has exams. So some days he's in all day, some half days and some not at all - means a good plan of Mum's taxi and meals!

Last week went to plan apart from Friday's chowder! Yet again, Asda didn't have any plantains (space on the shelf, just nothing there!), so had to do a bit of rethinking.  We had coconut curried pollack which is reasonably quick.

The advantage of still cooking for 4 on most nights is that four times last week we had left overs that could be used for lunch - pork chops or shredded pork goes well with a salad.

And so to this week (from Friday I'm going to have to think about stocking up on lunch supplies)

Monday - Spicy salmon

Tuesady - Pork burgers

Wednesday - Honey mustard chicken

Thursday -Shepherd's pie

Friday - Curried fish chowder

Saturday - Husband and son at Didcot for the day and will probably eat there, so no cooking!

Sunday - Balsamic Pork roast - a new recipe to try

Hope to share with Mrs M

Menu planning 12 - 18 May

So this is the week that GCSEs begin - may need to stock up on treats to get through the next 6 weeks!

Last week went pretty much to plan, I found a variation for fresh beef burgers that came out OK, and decided that making Coconut curried pork was a quick dinner for Saturday.

And so to this week, not much happening outside the house this week apart from exams, but lots to get done - marketing plans, product photos and end of year accounts....

Monday - Tuna

Tuesday - Citrus pork chops

Wedneday - Coconut turkey stew

Thursday - Pineapple chilli - it can go in the slowcooker as I have both Messy Church and a Scout meeting and have to eat between them!

Friday - Curried fish chowder

Saturday - Meatza

SundayHoney apple ginger pork

I will be sharing as usual with Mrs M
