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.
