Meal Plan 9th - 15th January 2012

Miraculously I stuck to last weeks meal plan to the letter.... but I doubt this week will be as successful due to the resumption of after school clubs for Lowen and hubby going away for a few days with work. I will try my hardest though, I promise!

Lunches this week are mainly going to comprise of Tuna Pasta Salad - I've made a huge vat of it today to last the whole week. I've also made up another jar of my 'Really Useful Salad Dressing' to dress any side salads that we have with dinner.

Monday 9th January
Dinner: Feta, Red Onion and Bacon Tart served with salad or leftover veg from today's roast dinner.

Tuesday 10th January
Dinner: Feta and Sun-Dried Tomato Omelette with Salad (and oven chips for the kids)

Wednesday 11th January
Dinner: My all time favourite (and hubby's least favourite hence why I can only cook it when he is away).....Spaghetti Carbonara

Thursday 12th January
Dinner: Stuffed Red Peppers with salad

Friday 13th January
Dinner: Chicken and Cashew Nut Curry

Saturday 14th January
Dinner: Harissa Spiced Lamb Chops with Couscous. The kids will have Cheesy Pasta instead

Sunday 15th January
Dinner: We are at my Mum and Dads for a roast.

I've got Blackberries and Raspberries in the freezer, as well as some frozen crumble topping so I might whip up this lovely crumble for Friday and Saturday.

What's on your menu this week?


  1. You husband doesn't like carbonara?! That's too bad. I'm lucky cuz Matt whips up the best one. Though that said he doesn't like lamb so I can only have that when we are out.

  2. You can find mine here

    Mine husband doesn't do spinach and we all love it, I make him have a jacket potatoes or suchlike when I am cooking with it!

  3. The tart sounds amazing. I like the idea of the tuna pasta salad but mine always goes a bit sticky and lacks flavour. I am glad I am not alone with meal plans then I thought it was the teacher in me.

  4. All sound delish to me! Hope you are well Beth x

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
