Our Meal Plan this week - the Blogging Friends Recipes Edition

It is a week of appointments and meetings as well as work this week, with a teacher strike thrown in on Wednesday just to keep life interesting.  I'm exhausted and still suffering from awful morning sickness, which is 24/7 rather than just mornings so I decided to go easy on myself.  

I have completely lost my Meal Planning mojo so decided to look to my blogging friends for tasty dishes to feed my family.  Apologies for the lack of a shopping list on my Meal Plan this week, I ran out of time to compile one before I dashed off to work.

Dinners

Fridge Lentil Soup - from Tinned Tomatoes, served with homemade Quick Cheese and Herb Bread

Cheesy Vegetable Puff Pie - from Tinned Tomatoes

Zesty Salmon Goujons - from Feeding Boys and a Firefighter, served with potato wedges and mixed vegetables

Cheese Leek and Bacon Pasta - from Feeding Boys and a Firefighter

Chicken Kebabs - from How To Cook Good Food (without the chilli sauce)

Baked Fish with Pesto - from Maison Cupcake, served with mixed vegetables and mash

Black Bean and Butternut Chilli - from Fuss Free Flavours

Lunches

Weekday lunches will be Mince and Vegetable Calzone, my children baked these on Sunday for the week.  They love baking and are much less likely to moan about their packed lunches if they've made some of it themselves.  The calzone will be accompanied by crudites a piece of fruit and a small baked treat.

Weekend Lunches


Quickie Quiche with Boursin - From Maison Cupcake


Hopefully normal service will resume next week.  Don't forget to check out all the other meal plans on the Meal Planning Monday linky over on At Home With Mrs M.

  1. I think you deserve to take it easy and I am delighted you featured my chicken kebabs in your meal plan round up. Bet you can wait for the first trimester to pass and say goodbye to the morning sickness, maybe you can get back on the coffee then!
