Meal Plan Friday 14th June 2019

Well what a week, it has felt more like late autumn than June and the rain has just kept coming. Sports day has been postponed and I just keep telling myself we need the rain.

Friday - Cesar Salad for Mr MC&W and I. The boys will have fish goujons, mash and peas

Saturday - Steak and Chips for Mr MC&W and I, we have a family birthday get together on Sunday so decided Saturday would be Fathers day. The boys are having Taco Saturday.

Sunday - BBQ but we are not cooking

Monday - it has been a bit of an indulgent weekend so Neapolitan Salad from Gions Healthy Italian and the boys will have pasta with cheese and ham and veggies

Tuesday - Cod with Bacon, Lettuce and Peas. The boys will have a simple fish pie

Cod with bacon lettuce and peas

Wednesday - Meatballs with spaghetti

Thursday - its hospital day for our eldest with this three monthly type 1 check up and catch up with the team, so a ready meal for the evening as I never feel like cooking after. 



  1. Yum. Happy Fathers day celebrations and all that. The meals sound really good. How do you manage to do something different for the adults and the kids so often?
    I know how it is sometimes though. I hope the checkup goes well and all the best for a fabulous week ahead

    1. This week was a particulary bad one for different meals. the kids eat as 4.30 or they snack and end up missing their dinner.

  2. I really should eat more fish. I like the sound of the cod with bacon

    1. I try and plan one fish dish a week. We have similar one with chicken and thought this one sounded nice xx

  3. Hope the check up goes well and you have a great week!

  4. Ooh cod with bacon - I'd never thought of pairing those two but I love the idea. Definitely one to try :)

  5. Hope the check up goes well. You sound to have some amazing meals as well

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
