Meal Planning Monday – October 8th – 14th

I have been reading At Home with Mrs M for months, but only just decided that I wanted to take part in her weekly meal planning blog hop. Meal planning, as anyone who has read my blog before will know, is a huge time-saver for me during term. I actually tend to plan for the week ahead some time during the weekend, although naturally plans shift a little as things get organised last minute.

I don’t always plan out my lunches, but it does help to have some ideas of things that don’t involve bread – I’m not terribly imaginative with lunch. I start my meal plan by consulting my diary and making a note of anything which is happening that affects my meals. For instance, this week I have a drinks party and a dance class straight after my tutoring lesson tonight, so I needed something extremely quick but not too heavy. The choir are going out for curry on Wednesday night, but I couldn’t afford to join them so I will be having my own curry at home so as not to miss out entirely. On Saturday I’m going to a full-day event which includes a cooked lunch, so I chose something light for my evening meal.

Day
Lunch

Sweet potato & leek soup
Tuesday

And I have just noticed that this is my 100th post! I would never have expected to keep up a food blog for this long. It’s great to look back and see how much better I have become at both cooking and managing my meals.
