Meal Planning Monday – 07/05/2012

This week is the first time I have taken part in At Home with Mrs MΒ Meal Planning Monday!

I used to be really good at planning ahead however the last few weeks it has fallen by the wayside then this ends up with us having crap to eat when the kids are in bed, so this week we will do better, especially as i’m back on my Mutu System.Β Plus it saves on the pennies πŸ™‚

So here we go, I will try to update our recipe section with the food we’re having this week so if you fancy trying it, the recipe its there!

Monday – Balti chicken & sweet potatoes, with side salad.

Tuesday – Spicy sausage & rice. An old favourite of ours with sausages, lentils & tomatoes plus chilli & paprika.

Wednesday – Honey & mustard chicken and rice. The kids will probably have something else as daddy has football training tonight so the kids will eat before he gets home.

Thursday – Spaghetti Bolognese! Kayleigh’s favourite, though no cooking involved as I have a portion saved from last week.

Friday – Lemon chicken, rice & mediterranean vegetables

Saturday – Pork chops, mash & beans.

Sunday – Roast chicken, roast potatoes, roasted carrots & parsnips, pea’s & homemade yorkshire puddings… yum yum!

So there you have it, our planner for the week. Here’s to hoping I stick to it this week! For more great meal planning ideas why not head over to At Home with Mrs MΒ for some inspiration!

    Welcome to the MPM family! This all sounds delicious. Just out of curiosity – what is the Mutu system?

    • MummyVsWork

      Its an exercise/diet routine, focuses on your core muscles after having kids to help those tummy muscles repair etc. Breathing exercises plus a 12 minute routine 5 times a week (that bits the killer!)
