Our Family Meal Plan this week - 21/07/14

Last week was a long and challenging one. Scorching hot weather combined with medication that didn't agree with me at all meant I felt dreadful most of the week.  Am feeling a little better now, thankfully and counting down the last few shifts at work.  Blogging has definitely taken a back seat, along with all other 'work' type activities this week.

I can't wait for all 3 girls to be on school holidays, 14yo finished on Friday but younger two finish this Wednesday.  It's going to be a challenge getting them to school for the last 3 days with their older sister being able to have fun at home whilst they are still in school.

I am feeling rather huge and tired so dinners are definitely low faff and need to be suitable for the diet I am on because of gestational diabetes.  So far I am managing to keep it fairly well under control with diet and only have to have insulin once before bedtime each night.

Breakfasts will be cereal and milk or toast and spread with a piece of fruit for afters.  We will have pancakes and crumpets on the weekend.  

Packed lunches will be sandwiches with crudties, a piece of fruit and a small baked treat.  I'll be having salads.  Weekend lunches will be Crustless Quiche and lunch with friends on Sunday.

Dinners

Roast Chicken with Salads (homemade coleslaw, potato salad, crudites and tomatoes)

Satay Chicken Noodle and Lettuce Cups

Mini Chicken Lattice Pies with salads

Mini Frittatas with Sweet Potato Wedges and Salads

Homemade Wholemeal and Lentil Pizzas

Honey Soy Salmon with Stir Fry Vegetables and Steamed Greens

Homemade Burgers on granary rolls with salads

The Shopping List should be back next week, once again I ran out of time before having to dash off to work.  Don't forget to check out other Meal Plans over on At Home With Mrs M.
