Menu planning 17 - 23 April

A week when the children go back to university, one on Tuesday, one on Friday, so another mixed week.

Monday - Fish pie

Tuesday - Pork roast (using the other half of the pork joint from last week)

Wednesday - Shepherd's pie

Thursday - Coconut turkey stew

Friday - Mascarpone Fish (based on a recipe from Asda  although I bake the whole dish which is less messy!)

Saturday - Bolognese sauce - I have 'zoodles' and my husband has pasta

Sunday - freezer diving, although I'll have the extra portion of the shepherd's pie from Wednesday

Menu Planning 10 - 16 April

A somewhat calmer week, although it does include Easter!
My husband and son will be volunteering at the local heritage railway over the Easter weekend, so all days have to be flexible as they can't leave until everything is clear.

Monday - Salmon

Tuesday - Pork chops with apple sauce

Wednesday - Chicken in white sauce

Thursday - Gammon (cooked in the slow cooker, giving cold meat for lunches)

Friday - Beef & cabbage skillet (one pot meal, and a good way of using up random vegetables!)

Saturday - Salmon fish cakes

Sunday - Balsamic pulled pork (a large joint that will be split in two)
I bought the pork some time ago, but it is big enough to do at least two meals

Menu planning 3 - 9 April

Well, last week went to plan, but this week is looking complicated!
My son is working as part of the technical team at the Swindon Gang show, so needs to be at the theatre early for the three mornings before the performances, as well as late on the two rehearsals and three evening performances.
So, this week I will be feeding 3 or 4 each day, and a couple of days it will be necessary to eat at midday rather than the evening because of the timings

Monday - Poached salmon

Tuesday - Pork chops (for 3)

Wednesday - Chicken casserole (for 3)

Thursday - Slow cooked gammon in cider (for 4?)

Friday - Beef and cabbage skillet
(a one pot meal at lunchtime)

Saturday - Fish cakes (for 3)

Sunday - something very simple, as I don't expect him home until after 2 am as the theatre has to be completely emptied and everything returned to another location before they can leave.
