Meal Plan Friday 31st July 2020

It is scorching hot today, I have done the most amount of washing over the last two days, how rock and roll is my life.

Mr MC&W is off work next week, we have decided not to even go away in the UK. With all going on we thought best to stay at home and do a few walks that we know are safe. The one treat though is what we shall be eating. 

We have this brilliant shop called Cook and the do frozen ready meals but they are just like really well home-cooked food. To save me cooking we have a few days of those meals in.

Friday - Fish, Chips, and Peas but it is a little hot

Saturday - Chinses Chicken Curry (from a jar)

Sunday - BBQ for Mr MC&W to cook.

Monday - Cook meal and tortellini for the boys.

Tuesday - Dominoes as my sister and family are coming over for the afternoon.

Wednesday - Cook meal. Cheesy pasta for the boys and even cheating with a ready-made sauce.

Thursday - Cook meal. Omelet and chips for the boys.



  1. Have a lovely week off together XXX

  2. Ahh! We have to make the most of the nice weather to get the washing done. I almost have an empty washing basket thanks to the nice weather.
    Have a great week with Mr MC&W being off work it sounds like you have some great meals planned. Enjoy your Domino's too! I really miss it. They don't deliver here. Hmmf.

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.
