Meal Planning Mondays June 2nd ~ 8th

Another week has flown by and once again I find myself amazed that already it's Monday. Even more shocking is that we are now officially in June!! How did that happen?

Last week was busy as Scott was away all week but yesterday we got our much needed down time with a day out on the boat which was fantastic. Sunny and hot with the water so calm it looked like a mirror, we couldn't have asked for a better day. After a few days on the boat now I have worked things out and was organised this time with a big picnic to keep us happy and well fed for as long as we wanted to stay out. I made some Scotch Eggs - one of my all time favourite additions to a picnic which we all love. I have a feeling that won't be the only appearance they make this Summer but I'm also keen to make my own Sausage Rolls one of these days!

This week is another busy one but the forecast is for glorious sunshine all week so you won't be hearing any complaints from me! Summer has honestly come early this year so I just hope it sticks around. My menu this week doesn't really reflect the beautiful weather as in an attempt to see if I can actually save some money this month I really am hoping to use up a lot of things that I already have.

Tonight is nice and easy as it's leftover pizza on the menu. Tomorrow and it seems to be the way that Tuesday night = pasta night but it's quick, easy and we all love it so why not! Last week we ended up not having the Spaghetti with Cherry Tomato Sauce as I had lots of sauce leftover from the Spicy Tomato & Mozzarella Gnocchi (since it was only Ben & I) so I used that up instead, so we're going for the Spaghetti tomorrow since I still have lots of lovely, sweet and juicy cherry tomatoes. Wednesday and I have a friend coming over for dinner as both our hubbies are away so it's a perfect excuse to have a night off, order some takeaway and catch up! I can't wait! Thursday and it's swimming so I am making Fragrant Pork & Prawn Noodle Broth which I can prepare in advance. This recipe was really a lucky find as I was looking through one of my favourite cookbooks just now - The Hairy Dieters- spotted this which I had bookmarked and realised I have all of the ingredients - perfect! Friday and I'm making a version of Jamie Oliver's Potato & Chorizo Omelette although I am going to add a little goats cheese to it since it will be needing used up. Saturday and we're back to Burgers because again we didn't get round to making them last week and once again Sunday is still up in the air as it will depend on what we are doing! So there you have it the first week of June, the sun is shining, the meals are planned and I'm ready to get on with things!

Have a great week everyone with family, friends and of course, lots of good food! x
