Meal Planning Monday

This week saw the boys back to school and me back to work. Last weeks meal plan went slightly off course for two reasons. Firstly I didn't look at what I had taken out of the freezer. It was a surprise to me as well as the kids when we had beef stew rather than cottage pie! Secondly, I had forgotten how a full week at work would make me feel. (It has been well over 8 years that I have worked 5 days in a row - even if some of them were part time.) It was a shock to the system and when Friday was reached. There was no way I was cooking, so takeaway was purchased.

As this will be another busy week, I have tried to plan accordingly. And we will have cottage pie this time!

Monday: Quiche with tortilla crust.

Tuesday: Sausage and mash

Wednesday: Chili with jackets or rice

Thursday: Hoisin beef made in the slow cooker.

Friday: Cottage pie

Saturday: Microwave curry. The boys have a better social life than me, so we will eat in between taking them to parties!

Sunday: Lasagne and garlic bread

What have you got planned?



  1. love the sound of hoisin beef may have to try that one esp in the slow cooker

  2. I hope work went well...We were ready for the weekend too after the kids went back to school. Those early mornings are awful.
    Great meal plan x

  3. Your freezer sounds like mine! I have been known to put "freezer surprise" on our menu. Hope you enjoy your cottage pie when you finally get it!
    I love the idea of a tortilla as a quiche crust, saves the bother of making pastry and I bet it's healthier too.

  4. I scrapped a couple of the dishes off my plan last week due to tiredness - the kids didn't seem to say anything so I think they were the same, to be honest ! I'm intrigued by the tortilla crust ia so I'll definitely be giving be giving that a try some time :)

  5. Sounds like a delicious week! I love the idea of a quiche with tortilla crust - very resourceful! Thanks for linking up x
