Meal Planning Mondays April 28th ~ May 3rd

Well yet another week has flown by and still no new recipe post up on the blog! I'm sorry - but I literally don't know where the time is going, especially since Thursday is the 1st of May! The year seems to be passing at lightning speed, however at times like this when we have so much going on keeping us super busy I have to say I am glad that I am a Meal Planner. As I've said before things don't always go according to plan every night but for the most part it works as a weekly unit and sometimes meals just get switched around to accommodate increasingly changing plans! I'm hoping this week will be fairly straightforward but you just never know!

There is no particular theme to this week's menu. Leftovers are thankfully all gone (other than some stock that is stashed in the freezer) however we have decided to start something new with Ben. Once a week he gets to decide what we are having for dinner and he helps cook the meal with me. Last Saturday was Cat's Mac and Cheese taken from his Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook. It was a little more complicated than I had anticipated and he did get a bit bored after a while but generally he loved it and was a great help! Thankfully the final dish was delicious. This week he has picked Burgers which will be great fun as he'll really be able to get his hands dirty! Unsurprisingly I love having him help out in the kitchen, especially now that I understand that things will just take a bit longer and be a lot messier but that's a compromise I am more than willing to accept. I am so grateful that he is such a good eater but I find that letting him see how things are made really makes him understand his meals and enjoy them even more!

So there you have it....another week of meals and with it another month passed! The good news at least is that at this speed it will be Summer in no time and we will be able to enjoy our delicious food outside in the warm sun. Keeps your eyes open as I have lots of plans for upcoming posts including our Best Ever Ribs, easy recipes featuring Rhubarb and some special Cupcakes for Mother's Day!

I hope you all have a great week full of delicious food with family and friends! x
