As I mentioned before in Weekly Meal Plan #1 – one of the new, regular features for this year is going to be weekly meal plans.
So, for this week, here’s the plan:
MONDAY: slow-cooker whole chicken with parmesan-coated roast potatoes and veg.
(I put a whole large chicken in the slow cooker on HIGH for 4 hours and it’s lovely and tender. I then shred the rest of the meat and portion it up for other meals throughout the week – it’s a great, cheap option when there’s only my husband, my toddler and me – the leftover chicken lasts us a while!)
TUESDAY: wholewheat wraps with red pesto chicken, halloumi, spinach and onion.
WEDNESDAY: black bean chicken and green veg (will use whatever I’ve got – green pepper/peas/green beans) with Thai jasmine rice (the best kind of rice in my opinion!)
THURSDAY: leftover bolognese with spaghetti, salad and garlic bread. I have a few portions of bolognese in the freezer from a few weeks ago – so this will be an easy meal!
FRIDAY: crispy Asian salmon with stir-fried noodles. This is so tasty and the marinade is so easy to do. I love crispy salmon skin – and the dish goes great with any veg you have on hand!
Let me know if you want more details about the meals, or comment with what you’re eating this week!
