    Hi everybody, can I join in? I'm feeling so hungry reading this!

    We plan to have

    Fri - Chilli & rice
    Sat - Meatballs & spagetti
    Sun - Roast chicken dinner
    Mon - Lasagne
    Tues - Pork chops, potatoe bake and veg
    Wed - Chicken cordon bleu, probably with left over pot bake
    Thurs - Sausage, mash, peas & onion gravy.

    Bit concerned about the fact there is 3 mince based meals so close together but find it so hard to find inspiration to other things.

    Will be pinching a few ideas from you all as it all sounds really good :)

    Here is this weeks meal plan, starting on Sunday as usual.
    I have never made chilli mince pies before but planning to use an exisiting chilli mince mix and put a nice pastry on top (mmmmm).
    I have never made the mince keema either but am following a recipe from my Readers Digest book and it sounds delish.

    Sunday 5th: Chilli mince pies (Chilli mix in freezer), sweet potato mash & carrot
    Monday 6th: [strike]Chicken with HG leek & bacon in a creamy sauce [/strike]leftover Chilli mince pies & lattice potatoes
    Tuesday 7th: HM pizzas (from freezer), [strike]pasta salad [/strike]& potato salad
    Wednesday 8th: Creamy mushroom pasta & garlic bread
    Thursday 9th: Salmon en croute, cous cous & green beans
    Friday 10th: [strike]Chicken[/strike], [strike]broccoli[/strike] orange & red peppers, mushroom & potato fritatta
    Saturday 11th: Steak mince keema, rice & naan (+ portion for Sunday 12th)

    Forgot to say I have all the bits in the fridge, freezer or cupboards!
    The week after I want do beef stew (and pastry or dumplings) so will have to get some lovely stewing beef from the butcher for that- but that will not be until week starting Sun 12th (10th on here) so no spends needed immediately (no room in freezer for it either!). Lunches also planned too but not on the post.
