Mealplan and Spending Update 13/4


Looking forward to the mealplan this week – I’ve made the effort to include some new recipes as I was getting a bit bored eating the same things!  I’m especially looking forward to the nut cutlets – I love that kind of thing and rarely make them now I’m not vegetarian.


Sun 13 – roast chicken legs with roast potatoes, sage and chestnut stuffing, cabbage, carrots, sweetcorn and gravy

Mon 14 – cashew and carrot nut cutlets with salad and couscous

Tues 15 – lemongrass pork and vegetable stir-fry with sticky rice

Wed 16 – soup, homemade bread and apple crumble

Thurs 18 – hot smoked salmon with salad, rice and roasted veg

Fri 19 – out for dinner with family

Sat 20 – black bean mole with chickpea pancakes and yoghurt

Lunches – cream of parsnip soup with bread or couscous salad for me; tuna or ham sandwiches for Dave

Spending (£142.10 / £160)
