Meal Planning Monday 12th May


Although I’ve still been meal planning every week, this is the first week since March that I’ve taken part, official like. The A-Z Challenge really did me in lol

Anyway, back now, and unfortunately having to go on a diet *boo hiss* as we’ve just had far too many cakes and puds these last few months, and my Acid Reflux problem has returned, and even with medication i can’t shift it. I know its worse when I’m carrying some extra weight *sighs* 😦

Last week i picked up a lovely new cookery book in one of my local charity shops. Brand new, still in its cellophane, for 2 quid! 🙂


I’d never heard of Darina Allen or the Ballymaloe Cookery School…until now and this book lists all their recipes they teach at the school…food porn at its best!!!! 🙂

So this week, my meal plan has come from Darina’s book…

  • Monday – Steak Sandwiches
  • Tuesday – Takeaway (i have a busy day)
  • Wednesday – Shepherds Pie & Bread & Butter Pudding
  • Thursday – Its my birthday so we’re out that night
  • Friday – Teriyaki Salmon (Teriyaki Chicken for the kids) & Rice Pudding
  • Saturday – Lasagne (I’m going to try Darina’s recipe)
  • Sunday – Who knows…The Hubster is in charge

As you can see, only 2 puds and no cake this week 😦

Please pop over to Mrs M’s to see what everyone else is up to this week.

Make me drool…what are you planning to cook this week?

  1. I have recently rediscovered baking. I have been using a recipe used by my Grandmother from her favourite little book 101 cakes to bake – you can see the details here

    Anyway, like you I take medication for acid reflux and like you it has been increasingly worse during the last week, so I need to take some proactive action. I do find that if I eat something like toast, a biscuit or a cake after about 8pm I struggle with heartburn and on some occasions have been physically unwell.

    The problems of a sweet tooth I fear!

    • Thanks Julie, its so painful isn’t it (i get the pains all up my neck and in my shoulder) 😦 Do you think its worse when you’re carrying extra weight?

      Ooooo, cake! 🙂


      • I don’t get pain into my shoulders, just my neck and throat. 😦 As to extra weight I haven’t really noticed any extra. To be honest since Christmas with Mum being unwell and then passing way I have lost 2 stone. I do find heart burn is aggravated by feeling stressed or under pressure though.

  2. I was lucky enough to be given the darina allen book by my mother in law and its great. If you need to make cookies (after the reflux has got better) I suggest the american cookies but warning it does make a whole lot of them!
