Shopping – or the lack of it!
I’m slacking again! I usually have plenty of free time on Saturday to write up my meal plan and then do the shopping on Sunday. But last Saturday I was recovering from a night out on Friday. No, I didn’t get plastered, any kind of activity, like leaving the house, leaves me too shattered to do anything, even pick up the laptop and think about shopping.
Anyway, here I am a bit late., having just finished the online shop for delivery for tomorrow. But I’ll let you know what we ate the weekend.
This Weeks Plan
- Saturday – pasta bake
- Sunday – curry (sweet and sour for me and eldest son)
- Monday – Take out
- Tuesday – Chicken kiev
- Wednesday – Mapo Curry
- Thursday – fish and chips (or chicken)
- Friday – crispy pork and noodles
I’m afraid it’s take out on Monday because I didn’t get around to doing the shopping online in time for a Monday delivery. But, I should actually be in hospital today so we tend to have take out on hospital days anyway. I’m taking a 3 month break from my treatment, unless I go downhill rapidly then I’ll be straight back in.
Last week my eldest daughter and I tried this recipe, Japanese style mackerel rice bowl, which we really enjoyed. So it will probably be something we try again.
I was looking for something to write on the other day while in my bedroom and came across around six notebooks. Every single one had some sort of meal plan inside. It looked like I was obsessed with food!
When you look at my bookshelves, you will find at least 15 cookery books (ok I haven’t counted them but there is probably more.) My Kindle even has cookery books on it. I seem to be always on the look out for food that pleases at least half of my family. Also, we get bored of meals pretty quickly. When I was growing up we knew exactly what we having on every day of the week. Mum’s shopping was the same every single week. Online shopping was not an option back then and Mum would go from supermarket to supermarket to get the best deals. Those were the days that you could find at least three small supermarkets on the high street.
Online recipes are great, I love how you can just type in a few ingredients and there will be a recipe somewhere. I guess that’s why my bookshelf is gathering dust.

I’ve found that I use physical cookbooks less and less too for the same reason!
Sounds like a tasty week. I hope it’s a good one for you!
Great meal plan. The Mapo Curry sounds good!
Good luck with taking a break from the treatment.
I hardly use real cookbooks now. There seems to be much more choice online. x
You have made me want to make chicken Kiev’s again there so tasty and something which goes down a treat in this house. Your Mapo Curry also sounds amazing and one I could get on board with.
I go through stages of cook books and then all online. Hope the hospital apt goes ok and you can have the time off the treatments x
