I’ve missed meal planning for a couple of weeks again. Last week I was in hospital all day every day, coming home in time for dinner, but I really didn’t feel like cooking and my appetite was low. We had a take out a couple of times, but mostly we managed to rustle something up. I got sent a Mindful Chef delivery which I hadn’t ordered and it wasn’t really food we’d have chosen, but we ate it, and it wasn’t too bad. If I’m really honest, I was so out of it last week I don’t really know how it went. This week the kids are back to school so I had to work harder on figuring out a menu.
This Weeks Menu, Back to School
This week we have another Mindful Chef Delivery and I chose two chicken recipes. Which is a bit of a chicken overload, but like I said, I was a bit out of it last week so I guess I just chose what I fancied without thinking too much. They both look nice though. I may have to ditch one of the other chicken recipes this week. I’m struggling, if I’m honest. I just don’t know what to cook. I always have little extras like sausages though, so I may try a toad-in-the hole. Or we could have a fry up dinner. What do you always have to hand for those days when you just don’t know what to cook?
- Monday –pizza/quiche
- Tuesday –Chicken, Ginger and coconut broth with vegetable noodles
- Wednesday – spaghetti bolognese/pasta bake
- Thursday – chicken parmagiana and red pesto roast potatoes
- Friday – Paella or fish n chips
- Saturday – jerk chicken (or toad-in-the-hole)
- Sunday – gammon and potatoes dauphinois
With the kids back at school, (well two of them anyway) I don’t have to worry about lunches anymore. I do still feed them at the weekend though! It does feel strange not buying all that extra stuff for their lunches. I still have one at home but she’s sticking with sandwiches because that’s what she would have at school. I’ve treated her to a couple of baguettes this week.

If you have kids and would like to get them interested in cooking, I’ve just become an affiliate for a fabulous kids monthly recipe box called Little Cooks. You can read my post about it here.
