Today salmon and jacket potatoes with mangetouts.

Tomorrow roast pork,

Monday pasta bake with left over pork

Tuesday is shopping day. I need inspiration for what to buy so marking my place. I have loads of pasta, rice and potatoes just nothing to go with it.

This week got messed up because I was ill.

So we now have:
Today - just me, so Greek salad, tsatziki, lovely bread and then rice pudding with rhubarb to warm me up

Tomorrow - baked potatoes, cauli cheese, maybe some veggie sausages

Monday - veggie shepherds pie

Tues - veggie fajitas

Weds - probably egg and chips

Thurs - no idea

Fri - probably going out

So far:

Tonight- roast duck with pancakes
Sunday- beef stew with sweet potato mash
Monday- stew and pasta for DD's and crust less quiche for me and DH
Tuesday- roast chicken thighs with ratatouille

I run out of ideas at that point...

Saturday (today): Going out to a restaurant
Sunday: Coté de bouef and gratin dauphinoise (not being pretentious with the French but actually live in France and don't know what this cut translates to in English. Prime rib?)
Monday: Noodles with yellow bean sauce, various veggies and diced pork belly
Tuesday: Veal holstein with creamy mushrooms
Wednesday: Braised 5-spice chicken wings with rice

...then Thursday I am off on a long weekend with a friend, and DP and DSS will be left to fend for themselves for a few days. Which means mostly pre-prepared food! I've bought in a pack of chicken cordon bleu fillet things, a flammekueche and a big tin of cassoulet for them.

There are some great things on everyone else's meal plans! Particularly loving the sound of roast pepper and feta salad, Mary Berrys Malay fried rice (saw her do that on Saturday Kitchen this morning and thought I should give it a try!), roast duck with pancakes (it's been too long since I've had that) and aubergine and sweet tomato rigatoni.

I need to remember to check in on this thread before making next week's meal plan.
