Wednesday: black bean and veg fajitas

Me! I haven't ever stuck to meal planning before I must confess but it's a new resolution of minewink

I've made a list (only cooking for myself and sometimes boyfriend) so it's not to bad,

breakfasts are to be either plain special K or porridge w/ dairy free coconut milk (I use the koko brand) and some blueberries.
Usually a black coffee too.

Lunches
Piece of wholewheat toast (got a big loaf in the freezer atm) w/ avocado & tomato. OR Heinz beans/ a fresh tomato soup.

Snacks
Sliced kiwis, apple, dried apricots, cereal bar etc.

Dinners
•Frozen plain basa fish fillet (so cheap and tastes amazing!) w/ either wholegrain rice or some wholewheat pasta and pesto, frozen veggies to go with.
•A veggie bolognese w/ supermarket brand veggie mince, fresh mushrooms, garlic& onion, chopped tomatoes and some wholewheat pasta, rocket salad. (Can get 2 meals out of this too!)
•Pasta w/ canned tomatoes, onion, garlic and some canned tuna and canned sweet corn. Broccoli on the side.

I'm sure I'll have some cheese available too for the pasta! We're hoping to move so any spare cash is good!

I'm just getting back into the swing of things with a few new cookbooks as Christmas presents - plan for the rest of this week:

Tonight: curry leftover roast beef

Thurs: smoked mackerel, boiled potatoes, watercress salad

Fri: slow cooked lamb shoulder, smokey aubergine salad

Sat: smoked haddock chowder

Sun: roast chicken, bread stuffing, rocket salad

SushiMonster Thu 03-Jan-19 11:31:11

Tonight: Coconut chicken and green pepper curry (Thai style) with cauli rice, edamame beans and probably a carrot salad.

Friday: Sausages with Moroccan spiced giant couscous, roasted red peppers, spinach and lemony harrisa yog.

Saturday: Chimichuri tofu steaks with sweet potato wedges, spinach and broccoli.

Sunday: Roast butternut squash sauce pasta, with rocket, pine nuts, balsamic vinegar and chickpeas. Half the butternut squash for this, the other half will be cubed, roast with thyme and garlic and frozen for use as a super quick pasta sauce at a later date.

Monday: Left over from tonight (will make triple curry portion and freeze as it reheats so well and is super tasty)

That is as far as I have got.

This week's been a bit of a write off, we've been eating scratch meals of left over NYE party food and out of the freezer. Then we are out all weekend. But for next week we will have:

Monday: Beef Massaman curry/Butternut squash curry, with jasmine rice and carrot salad
Tuesday: Tuscan bean stew (+ chicken for meat eaters), carrot and swede mash, perhaps crusty bread
Wednesday: 'Sabzi polo ba mahi' (Persian herby rice with lemon basted salmon), salad
Thursday: Smoked mackerel fillets with crushed potatos and salad
Friday: Koftas/Falafels in pittas with garlic yoghurt, cabbage and red onion, chips
Weekend: not sure

Your butternut squash pasta sounds really nice SushiMonster - do you blend/mash the squash at all or just do roasted cubes?
