I have not felt like meal planning as such the last few weeks but we have had some nice meals and trying hard to stick to a budget. This weeks plan is based on favourites I know will get eaten up, mostly easy to do. Except the Quiche, which once made always grateful I did make it but sometimes trying to make gluten-free pastry behave itself can be a challenge that has been known to make me cry!!! Popped to our local farm shop yesterday and got some lovely young leeks and gorgeous looking Russian (but grown here!) Kale so tonight will use some of the leeks and Kale.
So my menu this week, though I may well chop and change the days around looks like this:
Monday: Chicken and leek casserole with a crusty muffin top. Serve with a big pile of kale which I may well stir fry with garlic.
Tuesday: Homemade pizza and salad
Wednesday: Beef Fajita’s, salad and lemon and herb rice salad.
Thursday: Homemade tomato soup and cheese and ham baguette melts.
Friday: Courgette, lemon and cream cheese pasta and salad. Swapping the broccoli for courgettes in this recipe here and adding lemon zest.
Saturday: Quiche, baked tomatoes, new potatoes and pea’s.
Sunday: Yet to decide but most likely a roast of some sorts.
Yesterday I baked some rather gorgeous lemon curd muffins which are going a bit too quickly so I may well make more of these. I need to get golden syrup so I can make flapjacks so that muffins and flapjacks are what you will find in my cake tins this week.
I have linked up with ‘At Home with Mrs M’ on her ‘Meal Planning Monday’ linky. Pop over there and see what everyone else is cooking up.
