Christmas Meal Planning Monday

menu blackboard

Christmas is finally here after weeks and weeks of build up. We travelled home today after a weekend with my Knight-in-Shining-Armour’s family. No it’s not a Christmas tradition but a celebration of a family member surviving a major illness this year.  They will be partying on all week whilst we are returning to have Christmas at home with my side of the family. I’m looking forward to being able to relax.

Monday 23rd Eating somewhere on the journey home
Tuesday 24th Poached salmon, now potatoes & veg
Wednesday 25th Traditional Christmas Turkey & trimmings
Thursday 26th Indian Feast – this has become a family tradition with my children who are not keen on too much traditional Christmas fayre.
Friday 27th Left overs
Saturday 28th Left overs
Sunday 29th French onion soup



Meal Planning Monday 16.12.13

Christmas will be taking over everything at work this week. We’ve written our letters to Santa,  retold the story of the First Christmas and solved a variety of Christmassy mathematical problems. So this week it will be Christmas lunch, Nativity play, parties, Christmas disco, visit from Santa and the Carol Service. I love it but it is exhausting.  We also have a colleague who is retiring so there will also be a variety of farewell celebrations interspersed throughout the week.

So this is a pared down meal plan, mainly using up what is in the fridge and  freezer.

Monday 16th Cheese and ham omelette
Tuesday 17th Prawn & lemon risotto
Wednesday 18th Tuna & Baked potato
Thursday 19th Retirement do
Friday 20th Slow cooker beef casserole
Saturday 21st Away for family celebration
Sunday 22nd Away for family celebration
