Meal Plan 21st - 27th November 2016

Meal Plan 21st - 27th November 2016

Well the weeks are really rolling around quickly now. I've been organised this weekend and packed up some Christmas pressies to send to Australia and New Zealand first thing tomorrow. I even contemplated writing my Christmas cards on Saturday afternoon, but the kids didn't let that happen. I might take a stash to bed with me tonight. I'm a bit sad and post mine off on the 1st December every year.

As well as presents and cards I'm also thinking about festive recipes to share with you this Christmas. I've got an amazing Sweet Potato and Blue Cheese Dauphinoise recipe on the blog tomorrow (photo below), which would make a lovely veggie side dish for your Christmas Turkey.  Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for it.

In other festive news the kids are looking forward to our Breakfast with Santa at a local Brewers Fayre next weekend - the review will be on the blog next Sunday. That's when Christmas will really start for us...although I refuse to allow any tree's (we have 3) or decorations up until the first weekend in December! Can't understand why some people have them up now.

Anyway enough rambling....this weeks meal plan can be found below.

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.
