Our Family Meal Plan for this week - 12/05/14 - £52

I've written another hastily compiled Meal Plan this week.  I have had really bad morning sickness this week which has left me exhausted and less than enthused about food.  I was fortunate to pick up a free range chicken in the discounted/clearance section of the supermarket so we shall make the most of that and stretch it out for 3 meals.  I have included the cost of the chicken at full price to help those following the meal plan.

Breakfasts will either be cereal or toast with spread and a piece of fruit for afters.

My daughters are back on packed lunches, much to their delight.  They've made some Wholemeal Savoury Swirls for their lunch boxes and will have them with crudites, a piece of fruit and a small baked treat.  My husband and I will have leftovers from the previous night for our lunches.

Weekend Lunches will be Twice Baked Potatoes and a French Onion Soup with homemade bread rolls.

Dinners

Monday - Roast Chicken with Roast Vegetables, Steamed Greens and Yorkshire Puddings.

Tuesday - Chicken and Vegetable Fried Rice



Friday - Homemade Pizzas


Sunday - Vegetable Pie

  2. Muffin tin tarts are a good idea, I've been meaning to make some small savouries in a muffin tin, but never seem to get round to it.
