You may have noticed there hasn't been any Meal Planning posts over the past couple of weeks. This has been due to a mixture of the kid's school holidays, wedding prep for my Mum's upcoming wedding at the end of the month and a nasty case of tonsillitis (which hit right after the Easter Bank Holiday weekend). But with the kids deposited at school this morning and just two weeks until the big wedding I am firmly back on track. Here's what we are eating this week...
