This time yesterday I was lazing in the sun with a (non alcoholic) cocktail in my hand waiting for a lovely Halloumi and ham salad to be delivered to my sunbed while I made the most of the last few hours in the sun before we left Cyprus to travel home. This morning I’ve woken up to grey cloudy skies, a mountain of washing and a week’s worth of meals to plan!
I’m actually quite looking forward to planning this week’s meals if I’m honest – mainly because I’ve had a week off from my Slimming World diet thanks to our all inclusive holiday and I can’t wait to get back on it again. The food in the hotel we stayed at was lovely but not really what I would usually eat and there wasn’t a huge choice so to be able to plan our meals again is a welcome relief. Also, Mr Frugal and Master Frugal stayed at home and I don’t think they ate much better than we did as Mr Frugal is quite a basic cook and doesn’t think about vegetables or nutrition too much. Last night’s tea before they met us at the airport was spaghetti hoops on toast which is all good for a one off meal every now and again or even a lunch but I suspect that the last week’s meals have all been similar.
So, here’s what we’ll be eating this week….
I’m going to be making soups, SW (Slimming World) Scotch eggs and a SW quiche for lunches.
