Well, last week's meal plan started well but a stomach bug put the brakes on our weekend plans and made Mother's Day a bit of a wash out. I'm still not feeling human but I've bravely planned this weeks menu to make sure we eat healthily after our illness.
After very successful meal planning last week, this week is shaping up to be a nightmare. Between us Husband and I are basically every night this week. This means I'll be eating with the kids or out - so it's a weird week to meal plan. Next week doesn't look great either but hopefully our schedule will calm down a bit towards the end of the month.
Monday - Beef and vegetable casserole
Tuesday - Spag bol
Wednesday - Roast chicken with sweet potato mash, yorkshires, stuffing and peas.
Thursday - Leftover roast chicken risotto with red peppers and spring onions
Friday - Prezzo with Mum (early Mother's Day dinner)
Sat - Out for friend's birthday
Sunday - Out for Mother's Day
This slow cooked garlic and honey chicken recipe is my new go to slow cooker dish. So easy to do and makes a wonderful dish for the whole family (yes, the kids lap it up faster than us!). Bursting with Asian flavours the key to this is not to over cook in, you'll only need about 3-4hrs on low in the crock pot so don't leave it on all day or your chicken will dry out.
February is whizzing by. Last week the slow cooked honey garlic chicken was unbelievably good. I had to close my eyes at how much honey went in but oh my it was worth it. The kids loved it to so it will definitely be featuring on our menu again and I'll blog the recipe.
This week is a mad one and the lead up to my week of birthday madness starting on 18th where both my kids, my husband, Mum and Dad all celebrate their birthdays within 5 days. Yes, really! Plus we have lots of events so I'm trying to keep to the plan where I can!
Last week we stuck to our weekly meal plan really well. We only changed one meal due to Husband's cold. I didn't fancy cooking just for me so had a quick risotto instead.
This weekend the kids and I are down at my Mum's so not much cooking for me this week - Hurrah!
Last week’s meal plan went down a treat with my Chicken and Prawn Paella the highlight of the week.
This week Husband is away a lot but I’m going to try and keep the meal planning going with the kids.
This little recipe is a simplified version of the classic Spanish paella which is syn free on Slimming World - yes syn free! And trust me you would never know it.
This weekend saw my Sister in Law turn 40 and I decorated her this very special cake as part of some fun celebrations up in town.
My kids love a treat after school or when we are out and about. We've been trialing some of the new products hitting the supermarket shelves o to see which ones get a thumbs up from All about a Mummy HQ. Here's what we think of six of the latest kids' snack pouches and drinks.
We've finally moved house! Hurrah! One of the (many) rooms which needs a complete overhaul is our kitchen. Not only is it dated but definitely wasn't designed with kids in mind! You may also be in this situation, a stylishly placed dishwasher, built in knife block and low-placed wine rack aren't very practical when there are little ones running around!
So how can you make your kitchen kid friendly without comprising style and sophistication? Don’t worry – you don’t have to wrap everything in bubble wrap either! Here you’ll find a few tips on how to make your kitchen a safer place for everyone to enjoy.
