Meal Planning Monday - almost the end of term...

Sunday 23 June 2013
Only two more weeks until the end of term and Summer Holidays. We then head to Italy for a fortnight and I am so not organised in the slightest. Any top tips for Florence, Pisa, Tuscany direction would be most welcome. And if you could procure suntan lotion and pack suitcases for me so much the better. Last week's meal plan was followed pretty much to the letter but not many meals to share as there was also eating out, take away, Glamping and Pinnies & Petticoats Cake Club to squeeze in.
Yet again we had a fantastic time at High Seas Hobbit. 12 of us this time. Mums glamping in the Hobbit House and Dads and Kids under canvas. Bloggage to come later on this week including Rhubarb Vodka, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Bagpipes and ABC Pasta Salad. 
Lots of eggs to use up this week as I ordered three dozen to have plenty for pavlova and crème patissière making. Then Foodie Loon came home with some procured from a colleague who keeps chickens. Can't get better food provenance than knowing my egg was laid by a Maran Chicken with a Big Comb on the 15th of June. Traceability at its best.
And so to this week's #mealplanningmonday

Monday - Sausages, Yorkshire Puddings, Mash & Onion Gravy
Using up some leftover sausages from over purchasing for our camping trip. Egg in the yorkies.

Tuesday - Mediterranean Chicken Pasta Bake with Cheesy Crumb Topping
The first of two new 2 in 1 recipe mixes I'm trying out for Schwartz.

Wednesday - Kedgeree with Black Pudding
Another eggy dish with the added twist of Stornoway Black Pudding. I'm not 100% convinced but Twitter chums say its great.

Thursday - freezer rummage
I'm off to the Theatre with a friend to see 9 to 5 The Musical. We'll eat out and the troops can fend for themselves as long as they accompany with a fried egg.

Friday - Garlic and Thyme Roast Chicken and Crispy Roast Potatoes
Made with the help of my second 2 in 1 Schwartz Recipe Mix

Saturday - BBQ
Busy day at our Village Fair followed by a BBQ at friends.

Sunday - unplanned
Foodie Loon off to Oslo with work and think we will head to the cinema for Despicable Me 2
