The Meal Planning Linky – Week 4

It’s Week 4 of The Meal Planning Linky. This is a linky hosted by Naomi at The Organised Life Project and Katy at Katykicker. We’ve only been going a short while but I think we’ve got a lovely community building up, and I’ve loved reading everyone’s meal plans.

I know we all need a bit of inspiration and motivation when it comes to meal planning. That’s why we’ve launched The Meal Planning Linky. We’ll share our posts about meal planning, and you can link yours up too. Seeing others’ meal plans – and sharing our own – not only keeps us accountable but also will inspire us.

Our Meal Plans for the Week Ahead

Saturday: Duck with Savoy Cabbage This is a lovely recipe that I’d totally forgotten about.

Sunday: Roast Chicken – we’ve hardly had any roasts at all in January as we were a bit fed up of Christmas dinner, but I’ve missed them recently.

Monday: Pasta with leftover chicken, mushrooms, garlic and cream sauce

Tuesday: Soup – I’ve got a crazily busy couple of days on Monday and Tuesday as my timetable is full, I’ve got an observation happening at some point and several meetings so I need to keep things as simple as possible. I had planned soup last week but we had leftovers so we didn’t have it.

Wednesday: Lamb tagine in the slow cooker with cous cous and flatbreads

Thursday: Fish pie (Wednesday and Thursdays’ meals are to make up for not really cooking on my work days.)

Friday: A mediterranean style meze platter with flatbreads, olives, halloumi etc. 

Next week is going to be really busy, and I’ve got a lot of school work on – we’re at the point in the term when there’s LOADS of marking to do, plus there’s observations, reports to write and parents evenings, so I’m a bit frantic to be honest, even though I work part time. Hopefully Wednesday and Thursdays meals will provide some leftovers for the following week too.

  • Typical teacher days, Naomi. I remember those manic and panic stricken day, even when I reduced my hours to part time. Thank God for meal planning! It does make it feel like I have more hours in the day. Not to mention the fact that it’s also cost effective. Thanks so much for letting me join in on your linky. All the best with the marking and reports etc.

  • We’ve a really busy week too, and have parent consultations, so I do feel for teachers with families as we whizz around talking to them all at the high school until about 6pm. Slow cooker meals and soups are definitely the way forward for busy weeks, and making use of leftovers too. I hope next week isn’t too hectic for you.
