Menu planning 9 - 15 September

Boy, do we know it's back to school!
Evening activities, people needing to be in two directions, trying to work out what time to have dinner so everyone gets fed...
When you have two teenagers, one just about to go off to uni and a husband who is a trustee at a heritage railway - meals have to be flexible. At least we have passed the stage of having to do a separate kiddies' tea.

So the plan for this week

Monday Spiced up salmon  (need to be early so hubby can go to meeting)
Tuesday Basil pork burgers (elder son off to farewell dinner with school friends, and younger son has Explorer Scout meeting at a different location at an earlier time)
Wednesday Honey mustard chicken
Thursday Mozzarella meatballs
Friday Coconut curry pollack (husband has railway AGM, at unknown time!)
Saturday Honey, apple and ginger pork (Village fete, so we will be needed to help set up and clear away and I have a stall)
Sunday Beef stew (due to a scheduling error, we have  to set up a gazebo for my stall at the community market in Swindon Old Town, but my husband has a crossing keeper duty on the other side of town)

I will be sharing this on Mrs M's Menu planning Monday - lots of other menus there too!


  1. I just want your whole week of meals! Every day sounds amazing!!

    1. When my boys were small, my husband's work meant that for months we ran two meals every evening(a lot of 'quick' food), so we were determined that when he retired we would eat properly!
