Meal Plan Monday!! #mealplanningmonday


Meal Planning Monday

Last weeks meal plan was a huge success!! The kids and Stu & I all enjoyed trying the new recipes I made...I think from now on I will try at least one new recipe a week....It makes such a nice change eating something new and different!! This week I'm trying Sloppy Joes! Simple I know but I'm not the best cook and tend to stick to what I know so this is adventurous for me...lol 

Sunday we had a roast dinner instead of the planned Mince & dumplings so I'm also using the left over chicken from the Sunday dinner to make the Curry & rice on Monday....I'm getting so organised....Usually the chicken would of sat in the fridge for a couple of days then be thrown out....

This week on the menu we have....

Monday - Chicken curry & Rice...
Tuesday - Fish & chips....Out the freezer...Not from the chip shop :(
Wednesday - Mince & dumplings...
Thursday - Yummy sloppy Joes and a side of potato wedges...
 Friday - Jacket potatoes with various toppings... Cheese, tuna, beans...
 Saturday - Pizza...
Sunday - Pork stir fry with noodles....

As always I've joined in with the wonderful At Home With Mrs M's #mealplanningmonday linky

  3. I'm not a confident cook either and avoided it like the plague until my little ones came along. Good luck with trying out new recipes!

  4. I hadn't heard of sloppy joes. They look great! Think my OH will like them too ;) I try to be adventurous, but in the winter I always want my old favourites!

    1. Ohh I know what you mean but I think we've hit the point now where we're just sick of all the old faves...Never thought I'd say I'm sick of stews & things like Cottage pie...lol
