Gosh, it’s been a long time since I wrote a blog post. I started a few and then stopped. I’m going to leave it by saying that I’ve been having such a stressful time at work that I’ve struggled to think about anything else. There’s a lot going on, and I’m struggling to manage my time, so when I get home I just want to think about nothing, and snuggle on the sofa with uncomplicated tv, reading blogs or a book on my iPad or browsing the internet. It’s about all I have the energy to manage right now.
I have a meal plan for this week though, so it seemed to make sense to take part in meal planning Monday, with at home with mrs m.
Here’s the plan:
Monday (today) chicken stir fry with sweet chilli and garlic sauce.
Tuesday: whatever Craig makes for when I get home from work.
Wednesday: beef stew and dumplings ( I made it in the slow cooker yesterday and popped it in the freezer). I think it’s good, even if I do say so myself. I like stew when it gets to Autumn.
Thursday: lamb shepherds pie with a sweet potato topping, kale, carrots and sweetcorn.
Friday: chicken curry.
Saturday: burgers in buns with salad or chilli con carne from the freezer (leftovers) with rice and garlic bread. Not sure which yet.
Sunday: Sunday dinner.
I like having a plan 🙂 however, due to non planning my shopping bill has been creeping up recently (I spent about £65 this week,at morissons) and so I’m going to have to knock it back down again. I don’t even know what I bought exactly that made it so expensive compared to normal – i thin I just ended up with too much in my trolley by the end. Usually I shop at aldi, but occasionally I need washing powder (or crave their fresh bread!) and end up back at morissons.
I have a couple of book reviews that I want to post, so will get them posted in the next couple of nights.
