Meal Planning Monday for the St George’s Day Week
23rd April 2012
Fish, Bangers and Fruit!
Welcome to my first Meal Planning Monday post! Now, I am normally a “cook by the seat of my pants” kind of cook…….I KNOW what I have available in the pantry and freezer, and I know what posts and ingredients I want to write about on my blog – so there is some sort of meal planning going on in my head, but I am also a bit of a rebel, and I hate being spoon fed into making decisions at home and like the freedom to change my mind. I also like the opportunity of being frivolous now and then, and saying “let’s go out to eat”, so although this meal plan may be good today and maybe even tomorrow, please be aware that I may have changed my mind by Thursday, but I am posting this anyway, as I’m REALLY going to try to be more organised in the kitchen this week…….just watch this space! So, here is my intended meal plan for this week:
Monday 23rd April – St George’s Day:
Breakfast: Drop scones with fruit and maple syrup (recipe to follow on blog)
Tea: Salmon Sandwiches with Watercress and salad
Tuesday 24th April:
Breakfast: Fresh Fruit and Baguette
(Was supposed to have this meal for St George’s Day yesterday, but we had some lovely fresh haddock to use!)
Tea: Beans on Toast probably, as we will have had a large lunch!
Wednesday 25th April:
Breakfast: Cheesy Scrambled Eggs on Toast
Lunch: Home-made Soup – Probably lentil and carrot!
Dinner: Sausage and Potato Bake: Cheap & Cheerful Sausage, Onion & Potato Bake
Thursday 26th April:
Lunch: Meeting a fishy friend in York, so lunch out!
Tea: Something on toast probably, maybe tomatoes on toast with melted cheese.
Friday 27th April:
Breakfast: Fresh Fruit and Yoghurt
Lunch: Fish on Friday: Fresh Fish as part of the Fish Fanatics programme, not sure what yet, but the fish will be HAKE. Served alongside Scotty Brand Potatoes.
Weekend of 28th April to 29th April:
We have several dinner invitations, and also I am treating my mum to a VERY belated Cream Tea at a local Tea Room, so the menu is VERY flexible for the weekend, but, I will report back with any new ideas, recipes and photos of tea room cream tea treats!
That’s it for my FIRST meal plan, and I feel quite liberated now, as if I get stuck for ideas, I can follow my own meal plan…….probably! See you later and Happy St George’s Day to my English readers, go forth and slay a few dragons! Karen
