Finally I’ve managed to have the time to sit down, plan a week’s menu, AND blog about it!
Whenever I plan a menu, I normally spread out on the sofa with a pile of recipe books, my laptop with my Ocado order on it, and my diary. The diary is very important as it points out what the family is doing each evening. Mr Craftyguider’s board meetings mean he’ll be back late so I can plan in a meal containing gluten, onions, spices but no meat for me and the Craftyguidelets. Swimming means that I have 20 minutes to get a meal on the table. When my mother-in-law comes round to babysit while I help with Rainbows, I need to have something that I can prepare and leave for Mr Craftyguider to sort when he gets in from work.
This week, we will be eating:
Monday – tuna pasta bake with sweetcorn
Tuesday – gammon, egg and chips
Wednesday – tuna steak and ratatouille
Thursday – spaghetti bolognaise (meat and quorn versions)
Friday – chicken cordon bleu (and a quorn version)
Saturday – vegetable goulash
Sunday – sausages
