Our Family Meal Plan for this week 24/11/2013 - £46

I had a busy week last week, too busy which meant that I was unexpectedly really poorly this weekend.  This week will be much quieter and I am determined to manage things better and not take as much on so I avoid the run down feeling and tiredness that has plaqued me for weeks.  Easier said than done but I will try my best.

Lunches for the kids will be school dinners to give me a rest and a break, my daughters will probably moan but they appreciated packed lunches more if they have school dinners once in a while.  Grown-ups lunches will be Root Vegetable Soup and Tomato Soup from the freezer defrosted as and when we need it.

Breakfasts will be porridge with homemade fruit compote.  I will bake some treats for after school snacks and morning teas.

Dinners

Roast Chicken with Roast Vegetables and Yorkshire Puddings

Chicken Soup

Mixed Vegetable and Pearl Barley Risotto, using up any leftover chicken and stock

Toad In The Hole

Vegetable Stew with Herbed Dumplings

Quesadillas

Sausage, Vegetable and Pearl Barley Hotpot
