Meal Plan Friday 7th August 2020

Wow it is scorching hot in the South East the last two days and it is set to continue. Mr MC&W is still off work for a couple of days so we have a few more treat meals to come. Last weeks meals went well and we have a few new ones for this week.

Friday - Steak and Chips I must admit it is very hot but still looking forward to this. Chicken burger for the boys.

Saturday - Butter Chicken from Cook and I can not wait. Omelettes for the boys.

Sunday - BBQ for my nieces birthday.

Monday - Is is still meant to be hot and we need some slightly lighter food. I fond this Gnocchi Salad that sounds lovely. The boys will have this as well.

  1. I love that butter chicken so much - a real favourite for Tom and I! Enjoy your week love and thanks for linking up!

  2. It is hard knowing what to eat when it is hot. The butter chicken sounds lovely.

  3. It's hard to plan ahead when you're not sure what the weather will be like. We've skipped a few meals lately and just gone for salad and nibbles from the fridge !

  4. Fab meal plan. I think I'd enjoy steak and chips whatever the weather! :) x

  5. It's still red hot hear too but at least there was a bit of a breeze today. Phew!
    I do like the sound of that gnocchi salad and I haven't seen anything like the BBQ mushroom buns. I think we might need to try them x

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.
