Lucy’s List – October (weeks 2 and 3)

I’ve got a meal planning double whammy for you this week! Mainly due to my extremely slack blogging of late but we’ll gloss over that.

I didn’t realise how much stodge I’ve been serving up until I added all the photos to this post! There’s an awful lot of pastry and creamy sauces and rich, roasted meats. Admittedly the weather has been really grotty – dark and wet and windy. Hibernation weather – snuggling up indoors with a hearty meal. But looking at this, maybe I need to rein it in a bit!



MONDAY: lasagne


TUESDAY: chicken korma, brown rice and paratha


WEDNESDAY: mushroom filo pie, minted new potatoes and green veg


THURSDAY: breaded cod, boiled potatoes, parsley sauce and mixed veg

FRIDAY: mustard glazed pork loin steaks, jackets and cauliflower cheese


SATURDAY: I left The Husband and kids to fend for themselves with a frozen pizza and went out to a quiz night!

SUNDAY: chicken tray bake (with onion, carrots, parsnips and sweet potatoes)



MONDAY: Jamie Oliver’s ‘hangover noodles’, with prawn crackers

TUESDAY: bacon and onion roly poly, roasted new potatoes and stuffed mushrooms

WEDNESDAY: minced beef pie with green veg


THURSDAY: chicken kiev, mash and broccoli (with a parenting win on presentation!)


FRIDAY: payday takeaway!

SATURDAY: prawn fajitas with all the trimmings


SUNDAY: roast pork and crackling with swedey mash, braised red cabbage and apple sauce

      Thank you! Quiz nights are usually held in pubs. There’s a quizmaster who asks questions. You & your mates make up a team & pay to enter. The entry money from all the teams goes in a pot to make up the prize for whichever team wins. Sometimes there are other prizes too – bottles of wine & such.

    That’s brilliant and what a fun evening out! I hope your team won. We don’t have anything like that in the US, that I am aware of. We very much enjoyed a pub meal or grabbing a drink when we visited your country. The bars here just don’t have the same atmosphere.
