Meal Planning Monday #14 {29 June}


I hate to say it, but this week I've totally lost my mojo. Usually, I look forward to meal planning and I will research recipes and look over my slimming world book to see if there is anything new to try. This week, it felt like a bit of a chore though and I can't put my finger on why. We have had a tough couple of weeks as I had to go in hospital for a small procedure (which you can read about here, if you are interested), and Alfie also had chicken pox. So it's been exhausting and I think I'm just taking a while to get back into the routine. 

So, meal planning this week was done rather quickly whilst sat at the laptop trying to order this week's shopping as we didn't do a shop at weekend. 

Here is what I have come up with: 

Monday: Burgers with wedges and salad
Tuesday: Ragu - we had this at my parents last week and it was amazing! 
Wednesday: My cousin is coming for tea, so we are having a cheese and bacon pasta bake
Thursday: Chicken, mash and veg/salad
Friday: Chicken enchilada's or fajita's

Hopefully next week, I will have found my mojo and our meal plan will be a little more exciting!

  1. I know when I go back to work I won't have the same excitement for cooking and meal planning and with the stress you've had waiting for results, going into hospital, waiting again, it's not surprising the meal planner mojo is flagging.
    Reading your post has reminded me I need to go for a check up to and reschedule my mammogram too. Everything is a lot less scary when you know what the score is!

    Have a good week, your plan sounds tasty and varied to me! ;)

    1. Thanks for your comment. I think that's what it is. It's been a stressful couple of weeks and with still waiting on test results, I just want to comfort eat. Never good. I'm doing well though and I have stuck to plan so far (think that's a 1st).Hope everything goes ok with your mammogram.

      Hope you have a good week too :) x

  2. What a stressful experience, I hope the test results come back clear and all is well...also that Alfie's chicken pox clears up! Hope your mojo makes a reappearance, meals still sound great :) xx

  3. Hi Alice, it has been really stressful. I think that's why I'm feeling the way I am. I'm definitely a comfort eater, so planning healthy meals has not been my main focus. Time to bring it back though as I want to be happy and healthy :) Alfie's pox are more or less gone now, just a few scabs left to fall off and the marks to fade. :)

    I'm sticking to plan so far this week - tonight's ragu was yummy!
