Meal Plan 1st - 7th June 2015

Well half term flew by! We've had a couple of lovely days out - Rosemoor Gardens in Torrington and Antony House in Saltash - which the kids thoroughly enjoyed, Heidi had her 8 week immunisations and I've done some much needed gardening in between the showers!
I'm keeping the meals simple this week to ease us back into the school routine. The kids are having their favourite paprika pork on Monday which they love with noodles, whilst Hubby and I are looking forward to the sticky sausage baguettes on Saturday which I'll serve with coleslaw and salad.
