Weekly Meal Plan

Last weeks promised blog post didn't happen, instead we were out every night last week and all weekend, so my laptop has barely had a meaningful glance of late! I have in been in two minds about blogging a concoction I made last week, involving tortilla wraps, eggs and potatoes.. it was pretty tasty but thinks needs some work on its presentation! I picked up 4 packets of eggs for 25p reduced so its lots of egg dishes right now!!

It was also a super busy week in that my boyfriend successfully passed his class 2 driving test and I have a new job lined up! Lots of change going on! So this week I have scaled back our evening plans, I need some rest! I really struggle if I am on my feet all day, by the time the evening comes they are screaming so I have kept the meal plan relatively easy, without needing long periods of standing just in case they misbehave!

Tonight's dish of Tortang Talong has already been eaten! I started writing this up in between eating as I have to go to my pilates class soon! If you have not heard of Tortang Talong before or are wondering what it is, I am not surprised! Its a delicious and super easy Filipino dish, sort of an aubergine eggy coated fritter, that my bestie taught me to make, well verbally at least! I have pinged her over a picture to see what she thinks of it! It doesn't photograph too well! We enjoyed it though, the silky aubergine flesh and sort of omelette coating are very tasty together, I steamed the aubergine in the microwave and it worked a treat and far quicker than roasting!

Tortang Talong, stir fried courgettes, basmati rice 
Tuna quesadillas, salad and sweet potato wedges 
Cheese n bacon Omelette, roasted tomatoes and green beans
Polish sausage, bubble n squeak 
Teryaki pork stir fry, noodles 

What are you all planning this week? Anything new or tried n trusted?


  1. Haa! Great minds think alike, we will have to swap notes on the tuna quesadillas :D I've not made them using tuna before, but realised I had 8 tins of tuna up the cupboard!
    That Tortang Talong sounds really good, I either love or hate aubergine depending on the dish, I think I'd like that though ;)
    Have a good week and change is good! Hope the new job works out great!

  2. Wow, real mix of cuisines there. I LOVE aubergines so I'm really intrigued by the Tortang Talong. I've never heard of it before.

  3. Thanks Mother Mands- new job is a huge promotion and terrifying but in a good way!! Agree on aubergine, its my favourite veggie - when cooked right!

    Alison I can never stick to one cuisine, our household and family is so mixed we have lots of different influences! The Tortang Talong was delicious, definitely make again!


Thanks for stopping by my kitchen! I love to hear your thoughts and comments on my recipes!
