Meal Planning Monday

Meal planning

Yes ‘Meal Planning Monday’ again. That week flew by and I am hoping this week will too as it is the last week before half-term, yay!!! I have been organised to meal plan this week (personal pat on back) and generally have most of the food in, give or take some salad and fruit. I have semi cheated as I have only done the week day’s this week, only because I couldn’t think of anything else on a Monday morning as my brother and family may be coming over the weekend. One of those loose arrangements that may or may not happen and maybe anytime over the half-term kind of things!!!

The beginning of the week has an Autumn feel as typing this there is a low mist going across the river and into the valley that only Autumn brings. We baked at the weekend, Gingerbread Men were made as requested by Oscar. He said on Saturday if I do more home work today can we make Gingerbread Men tomorrow so he did and we did!!! I also made a ‘Spiced Pumpkin and Orange Cake’ I did it Halloween style so I will add the recipe later in the week. It is gorgeous by the way :-) So the cake tins are full (important) and as we can’t just eat cake and Gingerbread this is what else we will be eating.

Monday: Autumn sausage and vegetable tray bake. It will be along the line of my recipe here but with pumpkin, parsnips, sweet potatoes, red onions added as well the apples.

Tuesday: Roasted butternut squash soup ( I will be organinsed and roast the squash & onion while the sausage tray bakes in the oven), naan bread and salad.

Wednesday: Brocolli and Cream cheese pasta

Thursday: Tortilla and chilli layer with salad

Friday: Home made Pizza and naked coleslaw.

So that is my week day menu just the weekend to workout and I be there!!! I have linked up with Meal Planning Monday on At Home with Mrs M. Pop over there to see what everyone has made.

  1. Sounds all lovely and autumnal. Haven’t got myself organised this week yet but do want to have a nice halloweeny soup.

      Thank you :-) Actually the Butternut squash recipe would work equally well with pumpkin thinking about it and work out cheaper. Yes this week I looked in the frigde and thought yes I can do this but that doesn’t always happen does it :-)

  2. It sounds gorgeous with plenty of in season veg. I tend to choose butternut over pumpkin because it’s cheaper and I hate cutting up massive pumpkins. I may have to have that soup next week if my kids want a jack-o-lantern though!

      The soup is yummy :-) Cutting pumpkins can be a complete pain, I tend to buy the smaller ones and last year I bought a Titian peeler which makes really easy work of pumpkins :-)

  3. Great meals for this time of year! The sausage tray bake sounds lovely x

    Great meals! I love the sound of the sausage tray bake, very Autumnal.:)

      Thank you Veronica, it was very yummy and a nice easy slam in the oven meal :-)

  5. Lovely sounding menu, got me plotting and planning!

    Broccoli and cream cheese pasta (well, dairy free version) is a big fave with my little one and I’ve been meaning to make butternut squash soup for ages.
