I haven't seen a meal plan thread for a while. I'm having a quiet moment while DD is napping,so thought I would try to figure out my plan for next week. Anybody else need inspiration?So far looking like this....

Tonight: Me out/DH something from the freezer
Saturday: home made pizza with chorizo, goats cheese and roasted red peppers for toppings. Green salad.
Sunday: Baked ham, maple syrup baked squash and other steamed veggies.
Monday: yellow split pea soup & leftover ham. Crusty bread.
Tuesday: Ham and broccoli pasta bake with leftover ham from Sunday. Green salad.
Wednesday: tuna & lentil salad with some goats cheese from the pizza, red onion, peppers, sugar snap peas etc.
Thursday: chicken & rice dish from Ottolenghi Jerusalem book
Friday: possibly take away.

I never normally cook ham, so looking for any recipes. I'm actually only cooking it because I have some yellow split peas to use up, and we've had so much veggie curry/dhal lately I wanted to make a soup instead and quite a few of the soup recipes are finished off with ham which sounds tasty. So we are having ham on Sunday.

I wish I had ham, my favourite for leftover ham is ham and leftover potato cakes- like fishcakes but with ham and cheese. I also like a warm butter bean and ham salad.

Tonight- lamb and chilli salad

Tomorrow- pan haggerty

Sunday- pork mince lasagne with salad and I'll be slow cooking a beef and ale casserole for the next days food.

Monday, packed lunch as I work long shifts, beef stew and a homemade coleslaw and king prawn roll.

Tuesday-packed lunch again- jacket potato and leftover coleslaw/stew and sweetcorn and wild rice salad.

Wednesday- squash and spinach risotto made with spelt.

Thursday- a pad thai sesame noodle affair with chicken and prawns

Just realising how meat heavy the next week isshock
