Meal Planning Monday 18 Jul 2011

ops... missed a week there. I did meal plan last week but forgot to post it.

Hunter chicken (using this great recipe)
gammon with mustard crust
turkey meatloaf with chilli jam
vegetable pisto manchengo with baked cous cous
egg, beans and SW chips
Quorn, veg & egg noodle stir fry
bacon and new potato salad

Once again it's all Slimming World friendly. The BBQ sauce recipe I've posted the link to is lovely, though I find it needs a little cornflour to thicken it.

I'm also making my most favourite chocolate cake this week: 
185g butter - room temp. cut into cubes
2 tsp vanilla extract
2tsp baking powder
1.5 cups sugar
2 cups plain flour (or 2 cups SR and omit the baking powder - it doesn't seem to matter)
1 cup cool water
3 eggs at room temp, beaten together
2/3 cup cocoa

Put all ingredients into a bowl and mix to combine. It helps to put the cocoa in early so it doesn't fly into a dusty brown cloud. Mix on high for 3 mins, or until it changes colour (it goes lighter). It might look a bit curdled (though mine never has) but it doesn't matter

Bake at 160C for around 1h 15min in a 20cm tin.
