Meal Planning Monday

As you might have noticed I've hit the wall one way or another and it feels like ages since I've sat and thought about what our family will be eating in the week to come. Lacking the inclination to really take the bit between my teeth, I'm planning on keeping it simple:

Monday: mushroom risotto with a jamaican jerk kick

Tuesday: spagetti carbonarra

Wednesday: beans on toast - a cheat night as Grace will have had 3 square meals at nursery and I'm working in Newcastle and Manchester this week so time is short (as I'm sure by Wednesday will be patience and energy to cook!)

Thursday: brown rice with pork and vegetable ragu

Friday: sausage, egg, chips and beans... good old fashioned home comfort with a dollop of ketchup for good measure. I'm looking forward to this one the most!

Remember to head on over to Mrs M for some real culinary inspiration...

Tunnel vision

In the tunnel at Lotherton Hall
I love the reflections in this shot. It wasn't planned, just a quick point and shoot with the camera phone so I'm really pleased with how this came out. Grace is two next week and for me, this photo captures her wonderfully.
