Meal Planning Monday 18 January


After a quiet and lovely weekend of walks and films, this coming week is a higgledy piggledy mix of me being out and about, friends coming to stay, him being away and a birthday. So as a provisional plan:

Monday – Fish pie. I made a batch of the component parts yesterday and made Fish Pie 1, and will cook Fish Pie 2 tonight. I based it on this recipe but used way less fish and no cheese due to a desire for some frugal feasts and the no-cheese-on-my-plate-please boyfriend. In fact, I adapted it so much I think I’ll blog my amends, as it was quite simply the best fish pie I’ve ever had, even if I say so myself, which i just did. Gosh was it good.

Tuesday – Tomato, carrot and onion chilli pasta. A lovely bowl of comfort food, which I shall eat from a bowl in front of the tv, topped with a small mountain of mature cheddar.

Wednesday – Chickpea burgers with piles of sweetcorn, beetroot, tomato and cucumber.

Thursday – Some more chickpea burgers.

Friday – Jacket potatoes with crumbled stilton.

Saturday – Out with friends

Sunday – Out just us two.

And for a nosey at what everyone else is eating… Mrs M has the answers!

    That sounds great – I was thinking about doing a fish pie as one of my ‘new meals for 2016’ and might see if the children will eat chickpea burgers


    1. It was soooo good ๐Ÿ™‚ and fairly mild for kiddies. I always have ketchup on chickpea burgers-so surely that makes them child friendly??!


  2. I adore pasta topped with a mountain of cheddar – always tastes so much yummier!

    1. Thanks! Looking forward to it myself!


  4. The chickpea burgers sound amazing, I’m going to have to google the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ #mealplanningmonday


    1. They’re so much tastier than they sound-I use a mix of lots of different recipes as there are loads to choose from!

    Doesn’t like cheese? I wish I didn’t like cheese; if I didn’t like cheese, losing weight would be so much easier!
    The tomato, carrot and onion chilli pasta sounds lovely ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. I’m quite glad cheese is often off the menu as it means I eat less!!


    2. Ha the cheese thing is a killer when trying to keep the weight down! h x

    The meal plan sounds great. I am, however, struggling with the concept of someone who doesn’t like cheese… ๐Ÿ˜‰


    1. He he me too-but he loves broccoli and I hate it-how can anyone like it??!
