Meal Planning Monday (2nd July 2012)

Good afternoon and welcome to the first Meal Planning Monday of July. I know. It's still raining. Will it ever stop? Last week was BIBLICAL! Did anyone else get caught up in all that bad weather on Thursday? I've never seen rain like it and can fully understand flash floods now!

The weather is really playing havoc with both meal planning and dieting. I just want to eat comfort food and stodge, it's not good, but a salad when you're freezing cold is really not what you want.  

This week due to a variety of commitments, I am going low-maintenance. 

Curry (leftover from last night's takeaway...)
Chilli beef burgers & fries
Chicken & mushroom pie, potatoes & veg
Spaghetti bolognese
Honey sesame chicken

I'm really fancying some of the figaro fries I made the other month, so I might squeeze them in somewhere if I can. Perhaps on the side of the beef burgers.

I could really do with some more inspiration for meals. I'm halfway through a big recipe filing project so hopefully that will turn a few things up. Tomorrow I will be looking through the recipes for the Monthly Link Party - don't forget to come back and link any recipes you've made this month. There are no rules, as many as you like and you don't need to link to me. It's just a way of sharing recipes.

The Linky for this week's meal planning is below, can't wait to see what you're planning.


  1. Totally yuk here too :-( It is more soup than salad weather and I keep wanting to bake which is no good if your on a diet!!! Thanks for doing this linky again x

  2. I'm still in winter mode, fancy a beef stew and dumplings next week?

  3. Just looked up figaro fries and they sound delicious, will have to give them a go!

  4. Oooh, honey sesame chicken sounds yummy :)

  6. Hi! I'm linking up for the first time. I like the sound of the honey sesame chicken and the figaro fries!

  7. I'm lionking up for the first time too - have been meaning to do it for ages and never get my plan together... Anyway, just to prove how anal I am, I did a plan for a month... Am without internet at home at the oment so sneaking this in at work. Will catch up with the rest of you soon I hope.

  8. Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its
    a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.
