Lucy’s list – September (week 4)

I’ve included a couple of extra days on this week’s plan. It’s nearly payday so I always make sure I’ve got enough days planned out to last until then.

You may also notice a cheeky takeaway – WOOHOO! Everyone looks forward to takeaway night, don’t they? If you have young kids, it’s not always easy to arrange a night out. Or you might just be a totally unsociable hermit, like me and The Husband, and prefer to stay in where it’s safe and cosy and a lot less effort! So get the kids off to bed, ring through your order (I’ll have one of EVERYTHING, ta!), stick the telly on and crack open a bottle of something cold.

MONDAY – chicken, bacon and butterbean stew, dumplings and green beans
TUESDAY – broccoli and gruyere quiche with salad
WEDNESDAY – crab and sweetcorn noodle soup, prawn crackers and spring rolls
THURSDAY – sausage meatballs with spaghetti
FRIDAY – lamb burgers in buns, corn on the cob and salad
SUNDAY – roast beef, spuds, carrots, parsnips, brussel sprouts and gravy
MONDAY – lemon chicken tray bake with roasted Mediterranean veggies
TUESDAY – salmon fillets, new potatoes, peas and tartare sauce
