Meal Plan 9th - 15th January 2017

Meal Plan 9th - 15th January 2017


So, the first week of #dryjanuary has been completed successfully, whoop whoop 😀 (anyone else doing it too?). I'm not a huge drinker these days but over Christmas I did drink a bit more PG (pinot grigio!) than usual, so a detox was much needed. Unfortunately the wine has given way to extra cake instead - MUST STOP EATING CAKE! Difficult when I'm developing some new cake recipes for the blog and have cakes like this Vanilla and Raspberry Bundt Cake looking at me from the kitchen table 24/7. Wish me luck!

Vanilla and Raspberry Bundt Cake


To counter the excessive cake eating I’m back on the cross trainer for 30 minutes a day, which I try and squeeze in first thing in the morning if I can. I’ve also cut down on the carbs and cheese this week after WAY too many Brie and Bacon Panini’s over Christmas. I do love my panini press but it’s not doing my waistline any favours. But nor is the cake!

Ah well, on to the meal plan and this weeks dishes are based around things I need to use in the freezer. I found some lamb steaks buried under bags and bags of petit pois (bit of a food hoarder me), which must have been in the freezer for nearly a year so it was about time I made them into something tasty! What's on your meal plans this week?

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.

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…

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.
