Meal Plan 24th - 30th October 2016

Meal Plan 24th - 30th October 2016

The kids are very pleased half term is finally here as they have been super cranky and tired for the last week or so. Unfortunately I still have to work the day job so hubby and grandparents are doing the childcare duties instead. If hubby is left in charge of cooking meals you can guarantee they will be simple! A couple of years ago he managed to grill my lovingly made lasagne. I returned from work to find him puzzled as to what had gone wrong and I ended up having to scrape the top half of the lasagne off and put it back in the oven (not the grill!) before it was edible.

Rather more exciting news is that I'll be doing some recipe development work with a local cornish company. All will be revealed soon but lets just say I'll be knee deep in eggs, sugar, flour and fudge for the foreseeable future. As ever, I'll be tweeting and Instagramming my endeavours in the kitchen so make sure you're following if you'd like to have a nosy.

Right, here's the plan for the week - enjoy and let me know what you're planning to cook.

Monday 24th October
Leftover Slow Cooker Chicken Curry - I can trust him to reheat this in the microwave...I think!?!

Tuesday 25th October
Homemade Pizza - I'll make the dough the night before and leave it in the fridge ready for hubby to roll out and the kids to top with their favourite toppings.

Wednesday 26th October
Oven Baked Risotto

Thursday 27th October
Brie and Bacon Panini's - I just hope he doesn't accidentally leave the panini press on like last time

Friday 28th October
Out for my sons 7th Birthday Party

Saturday 29th October

Sunday 30th October

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.
