Meal Planning Monday (31/10/11)

By | October 31, 2011

So now the clocks have gone back it means driving home in the dark and cold, which in turn means we’ll be eating more warming winter food.  The slow cooker will be used more over the coming months, which isn’t a bad thing, it just means more organisation on my part in a morning!

This weeks plan looks like this:

  • Chicken and pasta bake with garlic bread
  • Sausage and bean casserole (slow cooker)
  • Red Thai beef curry
  • Gnocchi and tomato bake
  • Pizzas

We’re having a bonfire and fireworks on Saturday night and will be doing a barbecue as long as it’s dry.  I have a few idea’s for different meat marinades to try and make things a little more exciting than the usual sausage and burgers.  I’m sure I’ll be making a batch of bonfire toffee at the end of the week too.

What are you eating this week?  Pop over to Mrs M’s for more meal planning ideas.

Oh I have just made a bunch of casseroles and soups to ensure we are all set for winter!

Love hot stews on an autumn night.

Enjoy fireworks night

The gnocchi is a great one. Though my kids prefer eating gnocchi when roasted (blame Nigella). Next time I’m making that I’m going to make the sauce, roast the gnocchi and then serve!
