Meal Planning Monday: Back to work edition
Last week was a good week in the Pantry, we stuck mainly to plan. Although I've had to sideline my plans for roast beef today as I've still not managed anything other than half a slice of toast (you can put your violins away, I'll live).
Monday: I don't know, I can't imagine I'll fancy much more than an omlette, but balancing that with what M will want after a day at work is tricky.
Tuesday: Leftover soup from last week, and if I get to the shops then some more soda bread as that is a lovely recipe (and I still can't knead owing to my stupid wrist)
Wednesday: Fingers crossed I'll be back at work so I'm going to simply do lefotver casserole that got frozen last week so I think we'll have that with a baked potato
Thursday: I think I'm going to grill some bacon and do a bacon and cauliflower cheese bake. I've done it in the past with good quality thick sliced ham, and it's lovely. And I think given the weather the comfort aspect will be much needed.
Friday: I'm hoping that inspiration (and my appetite) will have struck - without inspiration, possibly a pasta bake or bolognaise type affair. That said I think M might be at his parents, in which case I'll go out of my way to get some fish for steamed fish with soy and sherry and a big bowl of stir fried greens.
Baking wise: I still need to make the chocolate cake for Valentines, as well as a fruit cake for my birthday next week. The eccles cakes are a long gone memory so possibly a traybake or similar for packed lunches.
Breakfasts are more 0% fat Total Greek yoghurt and homemade granola with fruit - I used this recipe from Lavender and Loveage which is just lovely and it's telling of my appetite that I've not been picking at it as I've gone past.
