Last year I was not able to plan, our baby arrived over 2 weeks early and then I was rather poorly. This year it is full on planning. I hate waste and to be honest not knowing what we are going to eat stresses me out.
We are buying a gammon and rolled turkey breast as we love all the cold meats, salads and sandwiches. The boys eat gammon like sweets. I will be cooking the gammon in cola.
I was also able to do my online shop easily, I wrote three lists and got exactly what we need for each meal, hoping not to waste food. Also trying to keep it interesting for the family.
Monday 19th - Homemade Pizza - get to choose our own toppings which is always fun.
Tuesday 20th - Jacket Potatoes with beans and cheese. Simple meal as its school party and haircuts today.
Wednesday 21st - Tuna pasta bake. Comfort food is sometimes needed.
Thursday 22nd - A treat of a Charlie Bingham meal as Mr MC&W is finishing work today.
Friday 23rd - Spag Bol
Saturday 24th - Mr MC&W family has always had a tradition of going out for a curry on Christmas Eve. With 3 little ones we now get a ready meal, but I love this and happy to keep it going.
Sunday 25th - Roast turkey and I am not cooking.
Monday 26th - Cold meats and salad and cheese just eating all day I think
Tuesday 27th - MIL coming over so we are doing a full on roast beef
Wednesday 28th - Turkey and Ham pie with a lot of veggies
Thursday 29th - A potato bake using the gammon. I did this last year and it was amazing.
