Meal Plan 28th November - 4th December 2016

Meal Plan


It's been a busy busy week here (when don't I say that?!) which culminated with a lovely weekend away exploring the most westerly part of the UK around Lands End. Despite the fact both hubby and I have lived in Cornwall all our lives, rather shockingly we've never been. That's been put right now and we got the obligatory photo to prove it (and paid £10 for the privilege..grrr!!). We then had a very nice overnight stay in Loggans Moor Premier Inn last night before attending the Brewers Fayre Breakfast with Santa event this morning. The kids had a great time and loved meeting Santa ...all apart form Heidi who balled her eyes out and refused to sit on his lap. Can't win em all Santa!

Breakfast with Santa


This week was also the week I decided it was time to go back over my oldest blog posts (dating way back to 2008) and re-take the photo's for the recipes. My photography skills, although still far from perfect are A LOT better these days and I think I can make the recipes look a little bit more appetising. My daughter kindly commented the other night that one recipe on the blog (which shall remain nameless), looked like a pile of cat sick. Her comment has spurred me into action. That's our meal plan's sorted for the next 6 months then (and probably beyond)! It' going to be a big job.

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.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…
