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
We’ve been on Easter holidays for the last week, and it’s Easter Weekend this weekend. We’re visiting family, so I don’t need to meal plan for the weekend – amazing! I expect we’ll have a very traditional Roast Lamb dinner.
I spotted Nigella Lawson’s newest book in our local library this week – At My Table. I used to love Nigella’s books – my copies of Feast and How to Be A Domestic Goddess are incredibly well used. However, in the last few years, I’ve felt that her recipes have become much less family friendly or useful, so I haven’t bought her books. I’m pleased to see that At My Table seems to be a return to her usual style, so I’ve put in a couple of her recipes to our meal plan this week.
Monday: Dahl with flatbreads – I imagine we’ll all be desperate for something fairly spicy and meat-free after a weekend of roast dinners.
Tuesday: Hake with bacon, peas and cider (Nigella Recipe)
Wednesday: Quick Paella with chorizo and prawns
Thursday: Indian-spiced Chicken and Potato Traybake (Nigella Recipe)
Friday: Date night – we have a regular babysitter who comes on the first Friday of every month so the boys will have sandwiches and we’re going to try a new local restaurant.
