Meal Plan Friday 14th August 2020

 Wow, what a week of weather we have had. We also had no storms here either. This week we are going to try and sort out school shoes this week. Last weeks meal plan went well but safe to say we do not like fried gnocchi.

Friday - Pinch of Nom meatball pizza. Make your own pizza for the boys.

Saturday - Hawian Chicken

Hawaiian chicken with mango and avocado slaw

Sunday - Toad in the hole

Monday - Mackeral Salad with homegrown beetroot and roasted potatoes. Tortellini for the boys.

Tuesday - Aubergine and Vegetable pasta bake. Cheesy pasta for the boys.

Wednesday - TexMex fried rice, roughly based on this idea. For us all.

Tex Mex Fried Rice

Thursday - Thai Quorn Noodles - This one I make up using coconut milk, Thai curry paste and lots of veggies. We all love this.



  1. I love Pinch of Nom recipes - so nice aren't they !

  2. Oops, sorry to hear the gnocchi were a fail ! Loving the sound of Hawaiian chicken and Tex Mex rice :)

  3. The weather is crazy. Today we have rain, certainly different from last weeks sunshine. Good luck with the school shoe shopping.
    All of your meals sound so good. I love the sound of the Tex Mex Fried Rice x

  4. I'm so glad we have had a few storms over here. It's cleared the air no end!
    I love Pinch of Nom recipes they are so good. Fab meal plan. x

  5. Never tried Pinch of Nom recipes sounds like I should though for something different. Gnocchi isn't for everyone I quite like it.

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.
