Meal Planning Monday - 13th of June
Wow, what a week! The weather was shocking near the end, so I did a lot of juggling and substitutions. Mind you, managed to use nearly all the fruit and vegetables which is unusual!
Had a bit of a planning disaster on Sunday. It rained all day so decided to cook a beef casserole. Went rummaging and found the parsnips and swede I wanted to use were 'not quite' edible enough (Ok for soup but not to roast) so changed it. 'Found' sweet potatoes and butternut squash which I roasted with the carrots. Was horrified though when I realised, with the beef and tomato casserole everything on the plate was orange! Tasted okay though, but must plan how the dish looks more carefully!
So onto this week's plan;-
- Sticky 5-spice gammon with noodles and pak choi (1 Syn)
- Minced beef hash (free)
- Chickpea and roasted red pepper pilaf (2.5 Syns)
(these are taken from the recipe book extra easy meals in minutes)
- Cottage Pie and vegetables (Syn Free)
- Lemon Chicken and vegetable couscous (Syn free)
- Homemade burgers, Slimming World chips and salad (Syn free)
- Roasted chicken, roast potato, parsnips and vegetables (2 Syns)
As always, these are Slimming World friendly meals following the Extra Easy plan.
Last week I lost 3 lbs, so am really pleased and motivated for this week
Am going to go back to something on wholemeal toast for breakfasts (ie eggs, tomato or mushrooms) Lunches will be salads, rices, homemade soup and left overs!
