Meal Plan 1st August - 7th August 2016


I'm officially off work now for 4 weeks - a very nice prospect indeed!  My employer kindly lets me take the summer off as unpaid parental leave, which although hits us a bit financially is worth it for the extra time I get at home with the kids. I try and budget for the drop in salary throughout the rest of the year but it doesn't always go to plan. Thankfully living in Cornwall we've got lots of free days at the beach to look forward to and the kids don't mind beans on toast ......

Today we're at a local music festival (Leopalooza), which is just a few minutes down the road from us. Mr Bloom is there so the kids have been very excited about meeting him and I'm looking forward to seeing Kodaline tonight. The weather is good and I'm sure the cider will be flowing!

Tomorrow will most definitely be a lazy day recovering, but I do need to do something with the glut of courgettes I have before they turn into marrows. I've got a Chocolate Courgette Cake and some Courgette and Cheddar Muffins in mind. I might squeeze in some mini Chocolate Cheesecakes too if the weather forecast for heavy rain is correct.

Monday 1st August
Courgette Frittata and Salad

Tuesday 2nd August
3 Fish Kedgeree with a Poached Egg - I'm trialling Joseph Joseph's Microwave Egg Poacher!

Wednesday 3rd August
Chicken Parmigiana and Pasta

Thursday 4th August
White Ragu with Spaghetti

Friday 5th August
Peanutty Chicken Curry with Naan Breads

Saturday 6th August
Roast Gammon, Mashed Swede with clotted cream, Cauliflower and Broccoli Cheese, Carrots, Roast Sweet Potato
