It's about time I started thinking about what we eat a little more carefully. Since starting at the gym my fitness level has been improving (it's not hard to get better when you're starting from zilch), but I have not been satisfied with my weight loss. So here I am again, trying to plan our meals in order to improve my eating habits. I am also trying to make our Friday night dinners a special celebration, for the end of the working week.

Monday: Chicken strips, broccoli, cauliflower and pasta in a tomato sauce.

Tuesday: Marinated lamb fillets (heart smart), chicken sausages for the children, Greek salad, baked potato.

Wednesday: Lentil and pumpkin stew, steamed rice.

Thursday: Lamb burgers, salad, chips for those of us who could use fattening up.

Friday: Coq au Vin, creamy mashed potato, steamed fresh greens. Apple charlotte and custard for dessert.

Saturday: Toast, bacon, eggs, homemade hash browns, baked beans and spaghetti for non egg eaters.

Sunday: Pumpkin soup, fresh bread rolls

Menu Plan Monday is an initiative of Organising Junkie
