Hope you all have had a lovely weekend, can’t believe we are into June already the weeks are just flying by and it will be Christmas before we know it :). Today is my first day back to work after being off on holiday last week, I can imagine that today is going to be a struggle as I already know it’s going to be very busy. Booooo! One advantage of being off on holiday is that I am already organised for the week ahead and have a fridge freezer full of things to eat so at least I wasn’t stuck for meal ideas this week.
Monday – Cherry Coke Ham, Mashed Potatoes & Green Beans – After an 11 hour shift I want something quick and easy, ham was cooked at the weekend, mashed potatoes made on Sunday so just the green beans to cook while I reheat the rest. If you haven’t tried Cherry Coke ham before you are missing out as it tastes amazing! It has the right combination of sweet and salty.
Tuesday – Turkey Chilli & Rice – I made two batches of these a couple of weeks ago and froze them to eat when I’m working late and can’t be bothered making anything. Will need to remember and take them out of the freezer on Tuesday otherwise I may have to rethink what I’m having 🙂
Wednesday – Creamy Mushroom Pasta & Salad– Mr M will be at his Mum’s for dinner and it’s my day off so I think I will experiment with a new recipe as I have some coconut cream in my fridge to use. Will let you know how it goes.
Thursday – Prawn Fajitas – Not had fajitas in ages and it’s something that I really fancy having this week, might even make my own salsa and guacamole if I have time (or I may just pick some up on the way home)
Friday – Mushroom & Ale Pie (Ready Meal) with Veg I picked up a couple of ready meals at the weekend that were reduced and as I will be working til 7pm I just want something quick and easy. If I cook something after I get in from work it’s often around 8pm that we are sitting down to eat and I’m finding that I’m going to bed on a full stomach which means I am then starving when I wake up.
Saturday – Takeaway or Something from M&S – Sometimes on a Saturday we will either get something from M&S or a takeaway as a treat. I’m working this Saturday so it’s nice not having to worry about cooking and just have something that
Sunday – Home Made Chicken Kebabs & Chips – I made this for the first time a few weeks ago and Mr M loved it, it’s made with a coconut yoghurt marinade so is dairy free. Might do a blog post on it later on.
What are you having this week?
