Jay’s Away So We’ll Play

Jay’s away this fortnight and I wasn’t going to do a meal plan, but groceries need to be done and it gives me a good idea of what to cook on some of those super long days. As you probably know from this post, we don’t need to buy too much fresh produce these summerContinue reading “Jay’s Away So We’ll Play”

A Fortnight Featuring Feta

I did the groceries and I bought 4 packets of feta. Now I love the stuff, but that seemed like a lot. I think feta goes wonderfully with this season, it packs a salty punch, an excellent addition to a summer salad with tomatoes and zucchini. We’ve been out of the meal planning habit. ChristmasContinue reading “A Fortnight Featuring Feta”

Meal Plan #8

Spinach Pici Pasta I love watching cooking shows. I could have the cooking channel on all day every day, I find it great background noise and excellent inspiration for our meal plan. This recipe was on Jamie Oliver’s Comfort Food and I googled it immediately. I can’t wait to try this version of pasta. BakedContinue reading “Meal Plan #8”

8 Meals from My Pantry

This fortnight is a weird one. We’re away for most of the two weekends, and we’re cooking for friends on the two Wednesdays. So I thought instead of doing a big grocery shop, I’d just grab some bits for those meals when we’re cooking for friends and for the rest we’d just try and useContinue reading “8 Meals from My Pantry”

Meal Planning – Hipcook App

The next fortnight is a strange one for meal planning. Jay and I are both away, separately, for 2 nights. Jay’s away for work and so I thought I’d pack up the car and take Elliot to visit some friends in the mountains. I’ll be taking a slow cooker primal/paleo meal with us to share withContinue reading “Meal Planning – Hipcook App”

Meal Plan – Pizza, Pasta, Burgers

Last fortnights meal plan ended up being a bit of a bust. Elliot and I ended up visiting my grandparents for a couple of days and so we didn’t cook dinner at home those nights. But it’s all good, because now those meals have been switched to this fortnight. Bloke Beef Beer and Mash AContinue reading “Meal Plan – Pizza, Pasta, Burgers”

Meal Planning – Winter Warmers and a birthday

This meal plan is a little late for me. Usually I do it every second Thursday but as we didn’t get home from Wollangarra until Sunday, I just did a shorter one on Monday morning. It’s full of hearty slow cooker meals and a treat of bought Mexican for Jay’s birthday. Chicken and Coriander Curry JayContinue reading “Meal Planning – Winter Warmers and a birthday”

Meal Planning – Vegetarian Fortnight

I’m starting to really enjoy the meal planning process. I enjoy finding delicious meals to look forward to all fortnight, finding new dinners that I haven’t cooked before and actually using all those recipes that sit on the bookshelf in the kitchen. We had a very meaty fortnight last fortnight, so I decided to haveContinue reading “Meal Planning – Vegetarian Fortnight”

Meal Plan – Road Tripping

I wrote about how we meal plan our way not too long ago, and even since then things have changed. I’ve started planning meals every second Wednesday night or Thursday morning, prior to going grocery shopping. As you can imagine this not only saves time, but also saves heaps of money and waste. I thoughtContinue reading “Meal Plan – Road Tripping”
