Num Nummies Monday 23rd Sept 2013

It's a been a while, but I'm back. I signed up to October Unprocessed today and so really need to get organised with a thorough meal plan!

Of course, a meal plan also really helps with keeping costs down, and keeping any healthy eating goals  on track.

This week's plan:

Monday: Roghan Josh with diced beef (beef from our bulk buy last year)

Tuesday: Quiche with salad and potato (quiche in freezer). Lettuce from our garden.

Wednesday: Spaghetti bolognaise with wholemeal pasta (meat sauce in freezer)

Thursday: Chicken, corn and black beans on homemade wraps (chicken mix in freezer). Lettuce from our garden.

Friday: Cottage pie (freezer)

Saturday: Tbone steak and potatoes on BBQ, and salad (steak from bulk buy).

Sunday: Cheese on toast (homemade bread)

Breakfasts: mainly porridge, using steel cuts oats. Some days it will be cooked in the slow cooker overnight, but I cooked some over the weekend on the stove top and it is now in the freezer in small portions. There will be some days with toast from homemade bread.

Lunch: struggling for ideas, wanna share yours? Homemade bread features strongly but I would like to cut down on my bread consumption. Fruit and salads will be starting to make a regular appearance, especially once our veggie patch starts producing! 

You may have noticed that every meal (except lazy Sunday) has something from the freezer. I love my chest freezer! Also love my Mamabake group! I have joined a newly formed Mamabake group in my area, and we have met twice already for main meals, and once for a 'treats' bake up (think cookies and muffins).

In October we are doing a vegetarian theme, and it will be a straight swap. No cooking on the day. I am hosting the group in October and my kitchen simply couldn't cope with more than one person trying to cook. It barely copes with me!

I love my Mamabake group, and love that my meals for the next few weeks require little actual cooking by me in the evenings :)

Our little veggie patch is going well, and we are now able to pick some lettuce leaves when needed to go with dinner.

I am sharing this on Menu Plan Monday at I'm an Organizing Junkie.
