I’m back! I took a week off to try and catch up as I felt I was sort of falling behind with everything. I still don’t feel completely caught up but I do feel a little more on top of things.

A bit of a busy week this week. Monday Mr Monkey has an expo to go to and Lily and I will probably be doing the groceries.

On Tuesday we’re meeting up with the beautiful Lori from Random Ramblings of a Stay at Home Mum for a play date. I’m really excited but hoping the weather holds out so we can go to the park and I don’t have to clean the house. :)

Wednesday the in-laws are coming over and we’ll probably head to the pub for dinner before I go to the Buddhist Centre for an open night.

Thursday Mr Monkey is home and we have some chicken drumsticks in the freezer so I thought I’d try this Sticky Drumsticks recipe. I’ve never actually made fried rice before so this Fried Rice recipe looks fairly easy (if perhaps not authentic).

I’ve had this Crock Pot Lasagne Soup recipe from A Beach Cottage on my Pinterest board for ages and came across it again when I was looking for inspiration for this week’s meal plan. I was just explaining it to Mr Monkey and he was a bit perplexed. He has a thing about dishes that are named after another actual dish. Oh well, I like the idea!

I get the Healthy Food Guide magazine every week and when I was after inspiration I grabbed this month’s that I picked up a week or so ago and checked the dishes I had marked when I first read through it. I’ve been trying to eat more soups (I’ve never really liked soups before) and Mr Monkey has made a capsicum soup for me before that I really liked so I thought I’d give this one a go. Lily also seems fairly good with soups which was a bit of a surprise. Then again, she has always been a good eater but has become a little pickier lately, I think just being a toddler.

So, a fun week and some more inspiring dishes to make. Of course, we also have some great produce from Andy & Ted to use. I’ve been really impressed with the 3 boxes we have received so far and I’m looking forward to making it a permanent thing in our life.

What’s on your meal plan this week?

    *Trying* to be healthy this week and avoid a few of my favourite things like PASTA – All meals will consist of a piece of protein and a huge salad. Hopefully it will help make me feel much better than I have been and to help loose a few of those winter kilos!
