Meal Plan Monday| What We Eat

Although I did my meal plan earlier today I’m only getting round to posting this now!

It feels like I blink sometimes and suddenly it’s Monday again and a new plan needs to be written. 
Does anyone else dispair sometimes at the fact that children have to be fed EVERY SINGLE DAY…or maybe that’s just me???
Anyway since they do have to be fed, this is what we are eating this week.

Monday

Fish Pie. I used a recipe from Jamie Oliver’s Naked Chef book for this. I was attracted by the fact that the fish didn’t need a separated poaching/cooking and therefore cut down on wash up and time. I was worried about how this would go down as I hadn’t cooked a fish pie for the children since those glorious days before they realised that they could reject food! Anyway, it was tolerated but not loved. The sauce was very rich but they ate all the fish out of it and left the sauce behind so not a total disaster. We had spinach and peas and sweetcorn with it.
Tuesday

Lemony Chicken and chorizo traybake, which is a great and very adaptable one treat wonder, you can find the recipe here.
Wednesday 

Spaghetti and meatballs, which are batch cooked in the freezer.
Thursday

Beef and Red Wine Stew, potaotoes, carrots and celery will be cooked in the stew so another one pot dish.
Friday

Homemade chicken Kiev with coleslaw and oven chips. 
That’s the plan for this week.
 A little update on last week, I cooked Neven Maguires Beef Stroggenoff and it was a big hit, even the mushroom hating child loved it, although she still didn’t actually eat any mushroom. It’s definitely going to feature again on our menu.

  1. I'd like to come for Dinner too. Is that the Jamie Oliver recipe with the grated carrot and celery in the pie? That tray bake sounds yummy. Must also definitely check out the Nevin recipe. Dinner in your house sounds right up my street ☺️

    1. Anytime Tracey! It's Jamie's one with carrots spinach, hard boiled eggs and cream, it's one of his older ones. The beef stroggenoff was so good the kids are asking for it all week!
