Despite not having blogged a meal plan last week, we did stick to what we had planned pretty well. I didn’t get around to blogging the plan as we were away on Monday, down to Manchester for A’s birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed a meal at Mr Cooper’s House and Garden in the Midland Hotel, where we stayed the night. It was fabulous, and the staff even provided a complimentary glass of dessert wine to help A celebrate his birthday! It was a great experience. We then came home Tuesday, ate leftover Spaghetti Bolognase from the weekend and I did a small shop at Aldi on Wednesday. Wednesday saw Bean & Vegetable Chilli, Thursday was Pizza night for O and I, and Friday was Cottage Pie night.
I’m planning on doing some batch cooking this week to fill up the freezer with nutritious family meals in preparation for baby arriving in the next few weeks. Cottage Pie and Chicken Saag are both on my ‘to do’ list, and I’ll probably make up a batch of Bolognese sauce too.
This week, it’s half term so O is at home all week which I’m really looking forward to. He was very ready for a break, and it’s our last opportunity to spend some quality time together before baby arrives. So our meal plan for the week is pretty flexible. A goes into hospital for a minor op on Thursday so will have to make sure we’ve got plenty of friendly foods for him too!
