Meal Plan Saturday 27th August 2016

It has been very hot here in the south East over the last week, meaning that non of us have really wanted to eat. 

The chicken satay its safe to say we will not be having again. I like it when someone else makes it but not made by me.

The potato Muffins were good to try but very dull. We will have again but they need extra cheese, ham and flavourings. I will try these again with some major changes.

As its bank holiday weekend I want to have a little rest from cooking so some easy meals have gone into the plan.

Saturday - Curry this is a ready meal but as we are still watching the food we eat this will be a healthy eating version. Boys will have nuggets, chips and peas.

Sunday - Another ready meal, tesco had a lovely lamb dish with crushed new potatoes and loads of green veg. The boys will have roasted gammon with roasted potatoes and veg

Monday - Mr MC&W and I will be trying venison burgers with a few cheeky chips. The boys will have pasta with tomato sauce.

Tuesday - our favourite madhouse carbonara

Wednesday - hassle back potatoes with a tomato sauce and veggies. I have never made these but they look interesting.

Thursday - fish finger sandwiches again these are new to our family but worth a try.

Friday - another new idea risotto balls.

    1. The risotto balls were really great and the boys loved them with a big plate of salad. I cheated and served them with tomato ketchup not sure I should admit to that though hee hee hee xx

  5. Sounds lovely! I always meal plan a week in advance too so I know what we need and can budget too. I have Friday evening 'off' cooking so we normally have a takeaway bag from Tesco or something! You cant beat a good curry and hassle back potatoes sound interesting! :)

Deadheading Petunia

Today I learned that I have been deadheading my Petunia incorrectly for, wait for this, four years, yes you read correctly four years. I could not understand why my once blooming amazing petunias were not blooming anymore and had black bits on them. I had seen these black things on my Petunias every year but did not really think anything about it.  A google search and I had a breakthrough. My petunias were going to seed as I had been deadheading them incorrectly. I thought all I needed to do was pull out the flower and it would re-flower. Oh, how wrong was I, I needed to be cutting off the whole of the flower head to stop them from going to seed. Going to seed means they slow and stop producing flowers as they believe they have completed their job. I could never understand why they did not look good all summer but other peoples did and now I know. Yesterday I spent all day deadheading. Including several trips to wash hands and snips. Petunias are sticky and when you are deadheading two
