Turning 10 And Family Gatherings. Meal Planning Monday

It has been another busy week with another birthday. My eldest son turned 10 this week. Double digits! His favorite presents were some headphones, so he can play his computer games without annoying me, and a massive bar of chocolate sent from my sister.

We also had my husbands side of the family visiting from Madrid and on Friday my slow cooker saved the day with beef stew.

This week is unlikely to be any quieter. I am actually looking forward to Christmas so I can have a break! Big man is having a gaming party on Saturday so it will be pizzas and another cake. Luckily he has asked for an easy one with chocolate fingers around the edges and various sweets on top. Fingers crossed it is easier than little mans hedgehog cake!

I am pleased to say that I have managed to fit in a bit of baking this week and you can look out for my slow cooker fudge and Spanish persimon chutney over the next week.

So what is this weeks meal plan?

Monday: Chicken Fajitas

Tuesday: Cottage pie. I made a couple and froze them, before I started work so all I need to do is heat it up.

Wednesday: The boys will be at karate, so a quick dinner is required.

Thursday: Cauliflower cheese with sausages

Friday: Microwave curry. Having taken the boys to cross country and then helping set up the school fayre, it needs to be an easy tea.

Saturday: Large pizzas, garlic bread and birthday cake for big man's party

Sunday: Salmon and veg (fish fingers for the boys.)
