Meal planning Monday: 25th August 2014

Linking up with At Home With Mrs M and Organizing Junkie for another Meal Planning Monday.  Now the excitements of the wedding have passed and with the new school year on the horizon, it definitely feels like time to start getting organised around the house again!  Here's this week's menu:

Today (a grey, rainy London Bank Holiday Monday!) we are having Jerk Chicken with rice and vegetables.  We had some Jerk chicken canapes at our shindig which were a total hit, but which Matthew and I have never tasted, so I thought I'd perform a culinary homage.  Plus, as it's Notting Hill Carnival weekend, it felt fitting to have something delicious and in theme.

The rest of the week plays out thusly:

Tuesday:  I'm out at the movies, but I'll be defrosting Matthew a portion of chili con carne to have with rice.

Wednesday:  After a couple of days back at work, I feel a lazy tea will work best.  I'll pick up some mozzarella and chorizo to make some pita bread pizzas.

Thursday:  Chicken stir fry with glass noodles and summer vegetables.

Friday: Roasted vegetable pasta.

Saturday: Homemade chicken noodle soup with sourdough bread.

Sunday: Mexican chicken with rice.  Yum!


  1. I can't think of admiring to say, except, can I move in!? x

  2. That all sounds fantastic!! Everything sounds so tasty x


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.
