meal planning monday.

this week i'm nice and organised. bb and i sat down yesterday afternoon (having the weekend off was blissful!), wrote out our meal plan and a shopping list and then went and got everything we needed!
exactly what i need to be doing to avoid spending extra cash on take-away ;)

so what are we eating this week?
tonight i've got a pot roast in the slow cooker. topside beef and vegies. easy does it monday night.

tuesday night is usually date night. but seeing as how we're budgeting this month, i'm whipping up something delish at home. i'm going to slow cook some sweet potato and herbs during the day, to make a yummy puree to go with the fresh, marinated lamb loin from the butchers.

wednesday night, i should have my usual every-second-wednesday dinner guest over. so i'll make sure i've got something yummy cooking for her when she gets here. chicken and chorizo ragout in the slow cooker. sounds perfect with some fresh vegies.

by thursday night, i think i'll be in the mood for something warm and comforting. irish stew in the slow cooker will be just the thing.

friday night is my late working night. i think i'll have some marinated bbq pork ribs in the slow cooker for when bb gets home. they'll be the perfect accompaniment for watching the football on tv after a big working week.

saturday i'm going to leave up to bb. i've got work all day aaaaaaaaaand it's my birthday. definitely not my turn to cook nope!

and sunday? sunday i'll play by ear. maybe some nice salmon steaks, maybe some beef steaks, maybe a roast. we'll just wait and see :D

what have you got planned for this week?

SHUT UP! IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY ON SATURDAY - MINE TOO! I was just sitting here comparing the similarities of our meal plans when - hello - saturday birthday. SNAP. I may have known this before, but with a head-stuffed-up-full-of-cold I'm a bit dopey.

Have a lovely week and a fabulous birthday x
