After a month of grabbing meals on the run, entertaining over the festive season and traveling, it is actually quite nice to get back to planning our weekly meals. I love the certainty of knowing what I am eating each day, and it also means that we eat a more varied diet.
This year I am taking a different approach to these plans, and will be posting our previous week’s meals. This will let me add in any tips or substitutions I have for each meal, and also means I can give you ideas on how to get ahead.
So last week we ate:
Mr Grumpy and I had a back-to-school grown-ups function to attend, so we left The Princess to dine alone on Homemade Frozen Pizza.
Gado Gado from Jamie’s Comfort Food.
This dish is really tasty and well worth the effort. I prepared all the elements in advance (this could even be done the day before) then just plated it at the last moment. I substituted the radishes in the recipe for green beans.
Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Coleslaw.
This is very tasty pulled pork, with bonus points for being a slow cooker recipe. I tucked the pork and coleslaw into little brioche buns to create mini sliders. Mr Grumpy took leftovers for lunch the next day and there was still sufficient pork remaining to freeze for another meal.
Grilled Zucchini & Feta Quinoa Salad with Easy Weeknight Roast Chicken
I always cook extra chicken pieces when I make this recipe, so we had leftover chicken and salad for lunch the next day.
A store-cupboard standby (and family favourite) – Lemon Tuna Pasta
