Meal Planning Monday





Last weeks meat free week was reasonably successful, although with the beautiful weather we had family over at the weekend where we all enjoyed a variety of caramelised onion and jalapeno burgers, sausages and chinese style pork... nomnom! We did well otherwise and the kids enjoyed helping to make the spinach and ricotta cannelloni in particular.

This week with the weather remaining hot and a loss of appetite due to the heat we are cooking meals that are lighter and more snack-like.

Monday - Pizza and salad (in the garden)
Tuesday - Fish, new potatoes and veg
Wednesday - Lamb moussaka
Thursday - Fajitas
Friday - Salmon and gnocchi bake

At the weekend we are heading to Hyde Park for the Sainsburys Jubilee event so we will have a picnic lunch and probably pick dinner up on the way home. Sunday will be a roast chicken but without all the trimmings, more of a buffet/salad meal.

What's on your menu this week? Do you lose your appetite when it's hot?

You can link up your own meal planner or view some others over with At Home With Mrs M.

    1. It's lovely and so simple to make, literally gnocchi, salmon, tomato puree some chilli and soft cheese. The original recipe (I think a Ramsey one) has leek in too but I'm not keen on it! x
