Back meal planning after a very unhealthy ten days or so!

Tonight: pearl barley risotto with lots of green veg
Tomorrow and Sunday: winging it but trying to do so healthily!
Monday: Cous Cous and roast med veg
Tuesday: chickpea pesto salad
Wednesday: jerk sweet potato and black bean salad with rice
Thursday: puy lentils with garlic mushrooms and rocket
Friday: pasta with spicy sundried tomato and broccoli

I'm so looking forward to actually eating some nice healthy food!!

Those puy lentils sound gorgeous.

I don't know what order we're going to eat them in, and it's all pretty basic and boring after a run of fairly 'special' meals, but in the next few days we've got something along the lines of:

veggie chilli with deconstructed guacamole and rice
veggie spagbol
homity pie and salad
cous cous with roasted vege and feta
lentil soup and cheese scones (if I cba to make them - bought bread, otherwise!)

Over the coming week or so I am trying to use up the last of the Christmas stuff by adding a few fresh bits and pieces so we are having the following:

Tonight - fillet steak, mash, roast carrots & peppercorn sauce

Then in no particular order:

High tea - sausage, bacon, egg, pudding, mushrooms and sauteed potatoes
Lasagne, salad and garlic bread x 2 nights
Crispy duck with pancakes (Aldi!) and will do stir fry veg and egg fried rice
Parma ham and mushroom pasta
Chicken curry with rice and poppadoms x 2 nights

That's the next 8 nights taken care of and I also have some other bits in the freezer to use up such as potato gratin, potato croquettes, veg etc so can base some more meals around them

I am glad to be back to meal planning after the free for all over the holidays!
