Meal Plan Tuesday

Hey everyone and welcome back to the Tea Cozy! I'm back today with my meal plan for this week, slightly later than normal, hence, the scored off meal on the plan! I had a bit of a busy weekend, we travelled to Dublin on Saturday to see Ireland vs Australia rugby match, Ireland won woohoo! We also did quite a bit of socialising and cooking and i'm only now getting caught up with things! So, this weeks meal plan contains a few meals we did not eat from the plan last week and a few others which use up ingredients which I had in the house! I am again using A Girl Called Jack by Jack Monroe and Save with Jamie by Jamie Oliver. I just can't seem to get enough of these books at the minute and they are perfect for saving that wee bit of extra money before the festive season truly kicks off.

And let me just say, I am so excited for this Christmas! Our Christmas last year was a very sad occasion, so i'm excited to celebrate this year with ALL the cheese, chocolate and wine! Yes! I also have some exciting Christmas posts planned with recipes, gift ideas, craft ideas and meal plans which are festive and use up your Christmas leftovers! So, keep your eyes peeled around the start of December as that is when the festivities commence! Anyway, let's get back to the here and now, this is the meal plan for this week...

Monday: Spring Piggy and Mustard Mash, A Girl Called Jack

Tuesday: Peach and Chickpea Curry with Rice and Peas, A Girl Called Jack

Wednesday: Mexican Bean Soup and a cheese Pitta, A Girl Called Jack (already made and eaten, hence why it's scored out of the plan)

Thursday: Grated Rainbow Salad and Sesame Feta Fritters, Save with Jamie

Friday: Puffy Pea and Potato Pie, Save with Jamie

Saturday: Squash and Spinach Pasta Rotolo, Save with Jamie

Sunday: Mince and Onion Pie with Green Veg, Save with Jamie

Monday: Pork Meatloaf and Vegetables, Save with Jamie.

So, there you have it, that's our food plan for the week. I'm especially looking forward to the squash and spinach pasta, I've made it before and it is so delicious and perfect warming comfort food. I will be back tomorrow with a what I eat post to catch up on how the recipes are going this week. Stay tuned for Friday's post as it's about to get very festive around here, I can't wait to get my festive spirit out! Our tree is going up this weekend and i'm also going to be trying my hand at making our own Christmas wreath for the front door :). Have you guys got your trees up yet? Also, I would really love to know what your favourite festive recipe is? I need ideas! Thanks again for reading, we will talk again soon,
