Meal Planning Monday Welcome January!

Wow this is my first post in 2014! Christmas and the New Year flew by, we had fabulous Christmas meals with assorted family over Christmas and Boxing day, then a lovely week with more family in Devon and saw in the New Year with them, and a glass of bubbly admiring the fireworks on tv (and Gary Barlow!) and now slowly easing back into our normal sort of routines! I am sadly back to work and during my time off decided I could easily become a lady of leisure but doubt that will ever really happen but its a nice thought!

This was one of favourite photo's taken from Shaldon, shortly before we stopped in a cosy little pub for a pint! It was freezing outside so was lovely to take refuge beside a toasty open fire!

The meal plan for this week begun on Friday night when jotting down ideas and I had nearly finalised it by yesterday morning until I realised tomatoes were in it virtually every day...I don't know for certain but I have read before about them being not very inflamation friendly vegetables, and what with having bad knee's not to mention a few other body issues decided to re-jig it around somewhat and move some dishes onto the following weeks plans.

So this is the plan, though as always subject to change - I am now onto night shifts but also have a few days off after to recover which is always nice! I picked up four jars of mincemeat for 10p each earlier so plan a little baking later this week as the cake tin is empty, how terrible!!

Monday - Salmon with new potatoes and creamed leeks 

Tuesday - Aubergine Parmigiana, courgette fritti 

Wednesday - Creamy sweet potato and bacon spaghetti 

Thursday - Beef kofta curry and rice, veg jalfrezi, saag aloo 

Friday - Pizza! We have a voucher.. 

Saturday - Turkey and leek risotto 

Sunday - Spicy Goan prawns with rice

Have a great week everyone, I hope you are all safe from the floods!
