This weeks meal plan incorporates some leftover lamb we will have from this weekend. We were so lucky to be given a shoulder of lamb from my mother in law which will go straight in the slow cooker today! I will be serving it with roast potatoes and lots of veggies.
Weekly meal plan – 17th March 2018
Monday – Lamb biryani. I will most likely throw everything in the slow cooker for the day, then cook up some rice when we’re ready to eat. I have a leftover veggie curry already made in the freezer so I will probably have that.
Tuesday – Lamb kebab wraps, with homemade naan wraps (no idea how I’ll make these yet but I always come up with something). I’m hoping I can make a flatbread dough in my bread maker to save time and make it easier on my wrists. Served with lots of salad and mayo. I love filling wraps up with tons of salad and mayo, I’m trying a vegan mayo this week to see if I like it.
Wednesday – Pasta with a tomatoey sauce or pesto. A nice quick meal.
Thursday – Sausage and mash with broccoli, peas and gravy. Normal meat sausages for the family and vegan sausages for me.
Friday – Freezer food/leftovers. Anything leftover or from the freezer.
Saturday – Roast chicken with all the trimmings. Roast potatoes, veggies, stuffing, gravy, maybe yorkshire puds to make it stretch a little further. This is the second chicken I picked up from Tesco while they were half price. When I see a deal like that I always get a spare for the freezer.
Sunday – For the last couple of weeks I’ve been cooking our roast dinner on a Saturday with enough to eat leftover on the Sunday (we love roast dinners). It’s been working really well for us when we don’t know what to eat on the Saturday. So I thought I would just put it straight on the meal plan this week. I can easily just not have the meat part and fill my plate up with roasted veg and potatoes.
