Meal planning for this week

(image from momables.com)

The plan for this week looks like this:

Yesterday, Monday, there was a chicken cooked in the slow-cooker all day so we had that with veggies and potatoes.

Today there will be baked potatoes with a variety of toppings.

Wednesday will be a lamb stew.

Thursday will be a mixed vegetable risotto.

Friday is a challenge, but I will attempt to make a cottage pie so that we can just reheat it when we get home from gym.

On Saturday I am looking forward to a chicken casserole, made with some chicken thighs.

And on Sunday, I think we may just go veggie again - I am going over to the BBC GoodFood website to see what inspiration I can find there....

The week ticks along so much more smoothly when I have some idea of what I am going to cook each day. I know that I have most of the things in stock for all of these meals, so that reduces the shopping burden this week, as well.

I love risotto, think I could eat it every day!

Oh, me too! The rest of the family are not quite as keen and sometimes sigh a little when I sneak it in again. I love it with mushrooms and courgettes, but they are the worst veg for the girls and I end up with plates of tiny pieces at the side which they have discarded...
