meal planning monday.

woweeeeeee last week was a big one! lots of BIG days at work, as well as a full day of work training (AND ballet on the same day) meant a VERY tired nicole. needless to say, the meal plan wasn't stuck too THAT much. but it was enough ha ha! we did pretty well considering...

i'm pretty excited to get to use a whole heap of fresh and seasonal vegies this week, after picking up our vegie box on saturday.

tonight, i'll cook up a couple of fresh lamb chops, that i'll pick up from the butcher on my lunch break. and i'll pair them with some creative sides to get to using some of the vegies from our box.

tuesday night, i'm heading down to the country straight from ballet, so bb will be on his own. i've got the day off from work though so if i'm feeling in the mood, i'll whip up a batch of curried carrot soup, which never ended up happening last week. we'll see ha ha!

wednesday night, i'll be coming home from visiting mum and dad so will be giving ncb a miss this week i think... need a night at home to mentally prepare for the week of work ahead (yep, it's wednesday. retail work = weekend work) and if i'm home, well i'll throw together a batch of jamie's pork ragu. with lots of spinach added to the sauce, and a big side salad i think. hopefully my oven will be back in action too, and we can have the ragu on freshly baked bread!

thursday night, i might whizz up some spinach pesto (so much spinach, in the garden and in the fridge from the vegie box!) and pop it with some pasta! simple and easy AND i can whack some in the freezer for next time too.

friday night, i'm working late. satay chicken in the slow cooker should do the trick. deeeeelicious.

saturday, i'm not actually working!!! it's my weekend to work so that is kind of a big deal ha ha. bb and i have got plans though, which should keep us out of the house for a good few hours, but should give me a bit of time to get into the kitchen and get something delicious cooking for dinner. i'm not sure exactly WHAT at this stage, but something delicious for sure!

oh and sunday, well i'll be working. i'll leave bb in charge...

what are you eating this week? what's your favourite vegie dish?
