Meal Planning Monday for my
– 30th April 2012 –
Crumpets, Scones and British Berries!
I cannot believe I am meal planning on Monday again, but I am as last week’s plan worked really well, with just a couple of glitches, insofar as I changed a couple of days around, but still cooked the same meals albeit on different days……so, I feel very virtuous and a bit of a meal planning diva right now! With a BIG thanks to the lovely Mrs M, over at At Home with Mrs M, whose brilliant idea this meal planning malarkey is! I may not be as good this week though, as I have only just got back from the shops and I am still plotting and planning my meals, but I can start off with today, as half of it is over and I CAN just about remember what I made and ate, and then the rest will just follow on……..according to what is in the fridge and freezer! Berries will feature heavily in my meal plan this week, as I have just started a BRILLIANT event in conjunction with British Berries and Breast Cancer Care, do take a look at my amazing Giveaway, as well as some special recipes that I have posted for the event here…….Win Five Prizes and Support British Berries and Breast Cancer Care. And, as berries will be featuring heavily, so will scones, as I LOVE scones with fresh strawberries and cream, and as it is my birthday on the 5th May, I will be treating myself to a cream tea sometime this week! So here with a flurry of ripe red raspberries and lush fresh strawberries, is my Birthday Week Meal Plan! Enjoy, Karen.
