Meal Planning Monday - 20 February 2012

Last week I didn't post a menu plan because, quite frankly, I couldn't be bothered planning one. I was struck by a strong wave of apathy and as a result our meals were a mixed bag of nothing to write home about.

This week my apathy has been replaced by a of guilt about how restricted I've allowed my kids diets to become. Their evening meals really are quite limited, so this week is about getting them to eat better. I've asked for their input in the meal plan and this is what we've come up with.

Fajita wraps, with them making the wrap if we have time.
Homemade chicken nuggets
Spaghetti bolognaise with hidden vegetables
Battered fish, chips and peas
pastry pinwheels - with ham and um... ham? (they don't like cheese)
Honey soy chicken with rice
Toad in the Hole

And as treats:

There aren't any recipes for these. I make my fish batter using fizzy mineral water or beer.

If you like this menu then share it around. Be sure to check out Mrs M's linky for more inspiration.
