Meal Planning Monday - 5 January 2015

After a long and very lazy couple of weeks off over Christmas I'm now dragging myself back to reality and that means getting back to meal planning. I haven't taken part in Meal Planning Monday for months and months but with only half an idea of what we're going to eat this week, I thought this would be a good way to get motivated.

After an entirely no-holds-barred attitude to food over Christmas any meal planning in January will require a little bit of restraint. A bit of a New Year cliche I know, but less emphasis on chocolate and more on fruit and veg can only be a good thing. So here's what I have in mind...

Monday - Pasta Bolognese

Tuesday - Fish Cakes with Rice and Veg

Wednesday - Spicy Bean Burgers with Sweetcorn Couscous

Friday - Fish & Prawn Lasagne & Chocolate Tart (cooking for friends)

Saturday - Undecided but maybe some sort of stir fry

If you would like to submit your own meal plan or find some more inspiration then have a look at Mrs M's blog, At Home with Mrs M, and add your own link. You can also find us on Facebook and on Twitter using #mealplanningmonday.

  3. Like the sound of the pasta and the lamb tagine!

  4. That lasagne sounds beautiful. My hubby would love the sound of that! Hope you have a fab week x

  5. Ooh a very exciting plan...I've never thought of putting fish in lasagne, might try that one :) also, feta, spinach and pine nuts - what a combination. Have a great week! Xx
