Meal Planning Monday: July 28th

It’s been a while since I did #mealplanningMonday, but when is better than in the midst of the summer break?  I’ll be doing this for a couple of weeks, then will probably take a break when we hit our wedding frenzy!  After that I’ll be hoping to do it every week – when life is busy (and with 9-12 hour days plus 2 hours commuting each day, it has to be described as busy) it’s so nice to know food is sorted!

So, on with the plans:

Monday: ‘Cheats’ roast dinner – grilled chicken, boiled potatoes, vegetables, stuffing and gravy.

Tuesday: Soup with fresh bread for Matthew, as I am out for a long overdue catch up with the lovely Katie.  We are heading to an amazing Greek/Lebanese restaurant, so I’m looking forward to hummus, chicken, and salad!

Wednesday: I’m out at a new members event, but will make spicy conchiglie with chicken and peppers – so tasty and I can leave a plate for Matthew to heat up when he gets home – it reheats beautifully!

Thursday: Pitta bread pizzas – so easy and simple!

Friday: Salads, I think – at the moment in London it’s pretty warm, so a lot of our meals are light and simple.

Saturday:  We are at a wedding….so whatever the bride and groom decide!

Sunday: Beans on toast (with a smattering of mature cheddar for me).  Because sometimes it’s exactly what you need!

Looking forward to linking up.  What’s your go-to lazy tea?

    I admire you. Even with my OCD, I can never plan meals that far ahead. (For reals, I have OCD, not making fun!)

    Love the thought of 'cheats roast dinner' the hubs keeps complaining that we never have roast dinners, maybe this will pacify him. Hope you have a great time at the wedding. 🙂
