Exciting news this week! The Pie Patch has been nominated in two categories for the MAD Blog Awards – Best Thrifty Blog and Best Food Blog.
Considering we’ve been up and running for only six months and our readership is still fairly small, this feels really quite special. It means that one (or more) of you lovely lot took the time to go to their website and type our name into the nominations form. Thank you for that.
I’m such a newbie at this, I didn’t really know what these awards were so I had to look them up. I’m still not really sure how they decide on the winners in each category. In a way, it doesn’t really matter. Just the fact that our name was mentioned feels like a pretty big deal!
Anyway, here is this week’s meal plan. It’s the week before payday so some of our dinners are on the very thrifty side. But here it is nonetheless.
THURSDAY: turkey burgers and parsnip chips
FRIDAY: egg and beans on toast
SATURDAY: macaroni cheese and broccoli
SUNDAY: beef and mushroom pie, green cabbage and roast spuds
MONDAY: broccoli and stilton soup with crusty rolls
TUESDAY: freezer food (chicken nuggets, waffles and mixed veg)
WEDNESDAY: PAYDAY TAKEAWAY!
