Monday Meal Plan:
French Sandwiches, Chicken in a Jar,
Wimbledon Strawberries & Fish on Friday
Here I am with my Monday Meal Plan, which I am linking up to Mrs M’s Meal Planning Monday……with thanks for this weekly link up. I had a post scheduled to go out THIS MORNING, believe it or not, but some unexpected change of plans meant I had to shuffle meals about and redo my post, so, again, I am a little later sharing this! But, I hope this will still provide a source of inspiration for recipes and meal ideas throughout the week……and as it is the start of the Tour De France and of course Wimbledon is in full swing, I have paid homage to some tasty French Snack and Picnic recipes, as well as some Pimm’s and Strawberries and Cream for Wimbledon too! There will also be my regular Fish on Friday posts, and some regular favourites too…..so without further ado, here is my meal plan for the week ahead! See you later, with some of the recipes as listed on my meal plan, as well as some more giveaways and, also some book reviews too. Karen.

I was due to cook in a competition on Sunday, and so NO meal plans were made, but I am now going to do a Traditional Roast on Sunday with Roast Chicken, Yorkshire Puddings and lots of seasonal veggies. The photo below was taken when I last cooked Roast Beef, but this Sunday it is Roast Chicken with Aromatic Herbs.
That’s all for today, are there any reicpes or meals
that I have posted that have titillated your taste-buds?
OMG, everything looks so delicious, I don’t know where to start! But the chicken with aromatic herbs is calling me! Have a delicious week!
Thanks Mary! The chicken in a jar is amazing and GREAT for picnics!

A FRENCH SUMMER PICNIC SANDWICH ~ PAN BAGNAT
I am slightly embarrassed as I did go and do a search on your blog 30 seconds after submitting my comment and of course found the recipe! I made it with my 9 year old little girl and we all loved it! Will try and share a couple of photos on your Facebook page.
Thank you so much for your reply and for sharing all these gorgeous recipes xxx
