Meal Plan 13th - 19th August 2012

I'm sat here this morning with that end of holiday blues feeling - really really sad and slightly depressed that London 2012 is almost over! I have absolutely no idea how I'm going to fill my time anymore - I can't really remember what I did before. When I haven't been at home to watch I've been listening to radio 5 live to keep up with the action (I'm a convert - Radio 1 is history for me, I was getting too old for it anyway), when the kids wanted Peppa Pig - I watched the Olympics on the laptop and at every available opportunity the TV has been tuned into to BBC1. What fills me with most dread is that we will go back to being subjected to rubbish TV - who cares if Sharon is back on Eastenders (this is from the person who used to watch every soap going) - I want SPORT not soaps!

To keep me sane I have devised some rather time consuming blog tasks to keep me too busy to notice the hole that will shortly appear. Task 1 is to reformat all my recipes on the blog and so far I have managed all of the 2012 recipes (only 4 more years of recipes to go). I would love your opinions about the new format, I'm hoping you will find it much clearer and easier to follow? Task 2 is to revisit every recipe I made and blogged during my first 2 years of blogging (2008 and 2009) to update the photo's - they were taken with a rather rubbish camera and some were so embarrassing I have already removed them from the blog.

So for the forseeable future many of the recipes you will see in the weekly meal plan are those that are already on the blog. I'm actually really excited to be returning to them to see if I can make them better now that my culinary skills have improved.
