Let's just get it over and done with straightaway - is it a snow day where you are today? It is for us. We had a huge dump of snow arrive on Friday and then more today which has meant a blanket closure of schools in the borough. This doesn't bother me though, I love a snow day and it means I get to avoid a cold, snowy school run!
Hope you all had a good week. I managed to not only get through all the #mealplanningmonday submissions last week but also the previous week too. Go me! It took some doing but helped by chocolate and wine, I got there. The start of last week was a bit of a bust for me as I was full of a raging cold which gladly seemed to pass quite quickly. It did mean however that I didn't stick to meal planning quite as well as I had hoped and instead ate lots of soup and poached eggs. This week I plan to be a bit better.
That's what I said last week. In truth, meal planning has been a bit rushed today as when I was meant to be doing it last night, I wasted the evening looking at music videos of the early 90s on YouTube. I remembered some corkers like The Go-gos "Cool Jerk", Cher "Save Up All Your Tears" and The Divinyls "I Touch Myself". I can't be the only one that gets so easily distracted?
Anyhow, the plan this week looks a bit like this;
Roast dinner (no idea what meet though, I fancy beef)
Chinatown Chicken Salad
Fajitas (Jamie Oliver)
Toad in the hole
Lamb rogan josh
I blame all the meal planners last week - nearly everyone had toad in the hole or some other sausage based meal!
We had a record number of meal planners again last week - 43 entries. Wowsers! That's more than I ever could have hoped. Would still like to beat that this week - what do you reckon? I've added the linky below so getting add your meal plans immediately and I solemnly promise to visit each and every blog again this week. If you haven't got the foggiest what is going on, just ask but I think it's pretty straightforward.
In the meantime, you can also check out my top tips for meal planning post that I published last week.
