Meal Plan Friday 12th July 2019

We are edging closer to the summer holidays. We only have 4 days left as a few inset days being taken.

The children are exhausted and not in good moods so its going to be a challenging one for us all.

We did not have the pulled chicken as we had a dominoes instead. The stuffed mushroom and the halloumi burger last week were lovely but the potato and cheese tart was not good.

Friday - Family favourite Fish and Chips and Peas

Saturday - BBQ

Sunday-  The boys are being treated to a McDonald's and we are having a tesco finest dine in for £10

Hanging Baskets and Containers 2020

Buying the plants for the hanging baskets was a little different this year. Normally it would be a trip to the garden centre, involving lots of picking plants up and putting them together to see what looks good. This year for lockdown I was lucky that our nursery had put together an excellent online shop. But I had to buy in packs of six rather than individual plants. This meant I had to think about how the plants could be used in two places. My main three hanging baskets are all petunias, I have to be honest with you, I love a petunia they are bright and bold and simply make me happy. I would normally go for clashing colours but I decided it would be better as I had to buy them in packs of six to have them as one block colour.  They are Petunia Hot Pink, Purple and Fanfare Red. For the three tire planter I have gone for petunias again, I am hoping they may trail down a little.

Saturday- Scampi and Chips fish fingers for the boys Sunday - Sausages in giant Yorkshire puddings smaller ones for the boys Monday - Caesar Salad simple and easy and tasty. Tomato Soup for the boys we are going to make some scones. Tuesday - Salmon sag aloo tray bake love this as it is all in one pot. The boys will have salmon with mash and peas. Salmon Traybake Wednesday - Risotto mushroom and bacon. Bacon and peas for the boys. We oven bake ours as it is far easier  Thursday - This is a real fresh meal we all enjoy.
