Meal Planning Monday!

Have you missed me? You have, haven't you!

I swore when the children went back to school, I would find some time to dedicate to my little corner of the Internet again. Unfortunately I'm failing, this is the first chance I've had.

I thought I would dip my toes back into blogging with an old favourite: Meal Plan Monday. I never stopped meal planning, I just stopped writing about it. It's a great way to keep the shopping bill in check, especially with children that don't eat a standard diet.

I tend to plan the meals around me and Mr. Ojo, we eat our main meal when they are in school. Then do them food when they get home, it eases the sensory issues of food smells too.

This weeks meal plan was based on ideas from this book:

As always, I try to adjust recipes so they are compatible with my lactose intolerance, and a healthier version when possible.

Here is this weeks plan, on my gorgeous meal plan board:

We've already eaten Mondays, by the time I got to write this. It was delicious, although not cheesy enough for me (I used a new lactose free cheese, which wasn't strong enough). We had it with a small Gammon steak, grilled in my George Foreman.

This was our dinner:

I hope I get to blog again soon, so don't miss me too much in the mean time!


  1. OMG that looks delish! I love the crispy baked top! And I love your meal planning board. Just started slimpod again so need to do this too.

    1. I still listen to my pods every night. I don't worry so much about food, just enjoy it. I love incorporating everyday classics and making them a little healthier xx

  2. Ohh! Everything sounds great!
    I've not had leek and potato soup for so long...I am quite fancying it now.

    1. I love the homemade one, I find the pre-made too salty. I shall look out for it on your meal plan soon haha x


I do love comments and read them all, please be nice and tboughful to others x
