blackboard meal plan All Past Midnight

Last week’s meal plan went well. The pot-roasted chicken was delicious, and a recipe I highly recomment. The recipe can be found here.

We had the chicken and chorizo paella on Saturday and it was delicious. I stripped off the chicken skin, fried it, and turned it into crispy crackling, which we used as a garnish. I’ve written up the recipe here, if you want to know more.

The Thai-style pork mince worked well too, and again I’ve written a recipe for it. It makes a simple, quick and easy mid-week meal, and my extremely fussy daughter cleared her plate, which is almost unheard of. It’s also very thrifty, so one I will definitely be cooking again.

    I really need to get into the habit of planning my meals for the week.

    • It takes a while to get into the habit, but it’s definitely worth it, especially as you can really think about what you’re eating and what you WANT to eat. Thanks for visiting

    I missed out on what every one was up to last week, so I can finally catch up now 🙂
    Oooh clams, I’ve only ever had them on holiday, but there really good and clam chowder is well nice! 🙂 Thursdays tea sounds intriguing, I think you’ll have to expand on the Mexican Cold Remedy! The sweet potato bread sounds really good too!
    Have a great week 😉

    • Ha ha, they’re tinned clams so probably not as luxurious as the ones you had on holiday. 😉 the cold remedy is a sort of chicken and tomato soup with lots of citrus juice in it. I probably should have mentioned that in the plan. Thanks for visiting. I’m looking forward to checking out everyone’s plans tomorrow

    Oh my. I don’t even know where to begin with this meal plan.

    First off I love love love the soud of the paella you had last week – crispy chicken skin garnish?! Inspired!

    Particularly like the look of your pork recipes this week. Pork is what stops me going full on veggie haha. Enjoy!
