Meal Planning Monday W/c: 21st May 2012

Oh my its been two whole weeks! So sorry to have abandoned you, time has flown by! Just as I got my camera back, I then leant it to my dad for his holiday so have not photographed anything! Also my laptop cable has died, the replacement via ebay doesn't work and now am on a borrowed, lower power one that won't charge but at least can use it plugged in! If anyone has a spare Dell vostro one please send it my way :)

In all honesty, I've not really been cooking anything that blogworthy...exam season is approaching scarily fast, car bills have seen the purse super tightened and I have been living off the depths of the fridge and freezer! Everything's been edible but just not very exciting! Though I did make for lunch today a rather gorgeous take on my beetroot salad, which also doubled as payment to a lovely colleague who cut my hair last week. If only we could barter everything with food! It was very popular in the staffroom too with everyone diving in to try it! Will make again and blog next time with piccies.

Last week I was sent some gorgeous new naan breads from Warburton's, which have been squirrelled into the freezer for when have people over, as I feared would eat the whole thing by myself! The garlic one in particular looks really tasty! Am going to make a curry soon and write more about them then.

And so moving on to this weeks plan. Which as always is subject to change! *updated*

Monday - I saw a recipe for an fruit nut and oat stuffed pepper...though am thinking of tweaking to using groats...about to venture into the kitchen so we shall see! Became groat pilaf, as my pepper was wonky and wouldn't stand up! Added sultanas and toasted cashew nuts, was tasty

Tuesday - Gammon, groats and courgette Leftovers from Monday

Wednesday - salmon pea and ginger noodles Was too hot after working late! Had rice cakes with marmite instead

Thursday - Breaded fish, potato bake and cabbage (though was a zillion degrees and would of have salad if I hadn't used it all up for lunches!

Friday - If I don't bake something before then, looking at frittata, possibly with mackerel in. Became a cheese pasty at work, then a banana

Weekend - am making plans to go out so open to anything!

Saturday -  going to the market get my fruit n veg in - dinner might be fridays bumped omelette

Sunday - family around - having chicken and veg pie, with whatever veg I get in market

Have a good week everyone!
