We will have:

potatoes dauph with smoked mackerel and green beans
baked pots with chilli from freezer
omelettes and salad and olive bread
slow cooker gammon with lentil thing and broccoli
broccoli and stilton soup
something from the freezer

don't know days, it dpeends on which veg need eaten first!

We don't have an oven, so are slightly limited in what we eat. We also normally eat out twice a week.

This week's plan is:
Sun - chicken stirfry
Mon - cabbage spaghetti & meatballs
Tues - lamb steaks, sweet potato mash, veg
Weds - Greek style burgers and salad
Thurs - chicken & salad

I think we eat a little too much red meat, but it's a massive pain trying to wean DP off it!

Well we are only having the chicken pie that was planned for Thursday today. Last Sunday's lamb was HUGE so became a shepherds pie midweek which meant we didn't make the pie till today. I also had a load of left over Curry which i frozw which we will have for tea tomorrow. All in all am very pleased with how many meals I managed to stretch to.

Sun - Indian ready meal
Mon - Sausage pasta (red onion, sausages, rosemary, chopped tomatoes, cream, seasoning)
Tues - Coq au vin
Wed - ravioli (olive oil, pepper and Parmesan for sauce)
Thurs - duck legs, leeks and mash
Fri - fajitas

We went through the freezer this morning before doing our weekly food shop and tried to use up as much meat as possible.

My favourite books for inspiration are a little taste of Thailand (love chicken with cashew nuts), Leiths Cookery Bible, Dairy cookbook.

A couple of my favourite mid week meals are sausage and leek supper, stroganoff and mustard pork chops

We aren't veggie but eat a lot of vegetarian, partly because meat is so damn expensive. I honestly don't know how people get by without meal planning! How do you know what to buy in the supermarket?
