Meal planning Monday October 7th 2013

It's a rather bitty week this week as Mark is away for a few days and then our younger daughter is arriving on Friday for a week. She's always been a very healthy eater  and not mad about meat so our high-veg-content meals are perfect for her, but she's also 30 weeks pregnant so I'll have to be careful about not bunging unpasteurised cheese or slogging wine into everything!

Monday - chicken stir fry with green peppers and cherry tomatoes from the garden and a handful of bought (shock horror!) mange tout

Tuesday - kedgeree

Wednesday - Moroccan chicken with couscous and salad

Thursday - steamed steak pudding with Savoy cabbage and runner beans

Friday - need to go to Heathrow to meet our daughter so will probably just have a quick soup made out of whatever's left in the fridge.

Saturday -  roast chicken with runner beans, if there are any left, and the first Brussels Sprouts from the garden

Sunday - pasta with cavolo nero and cream sauce, using the first cavolo nero from the garden

I'm taking a couple of weeks off MPM as I have a mixture of visitors and travelling coming up again, so I'll be back at the end of October. In the meantime, don't forget to check At Home With Mrs M for lots of menus to see you through the week!


  1. Everything sounds great!!
    Have a fab week x

  2. Love Brussels sprouts, I noticed one of the supermarkets had English grown ones as veg of the week, I always think of them arriving much later in the year. I will have to keep my eye out for some.

  3. I have never made Kedgeree (or been able to spell it! Have just had to check the spelling 3 times!) its one of those dishes that I really love but never make! I'll put it on my never ending list of things to make!

  4. Congratulations on the soon-to-be new grandchild!
    As for meal plans - I love chicken any way it can be fixed.
    Hope you are having a beautiful day
