Hell fire it's been hot! For the first time in yonks, it's actually put me off eating. Really. I know the weather has threatened to cool off a little this week, but I am still planning some lighter meals as I've heard it's still going to be warmer than usual. So, here's what I'm plotting this week!
Monday: Deli Style Hot Dogs - barbecued chiploatas served with Tracklements onion marmalade and melted Lancashire cheese. I'll serve about three thin sausages in each bun. This is a nod to one of my favourite meals ever from Thyme Deli (incidentally, you can buy the onion marmalade from there!). The marmalade is really sweet and sticky, but not overpowering.
|Sounds odd, tastes amazing with sausages...|
Tuesday: Roast chicken, vegetable cous cous and Vicki's grandma's potato salad. I'm not a lover of leaves, so this is my perfect substitue! My friend Vicki makes the most amazing potato salad ever, which I believe was handed from her grandma. It's a favourite in our house as well now!
Wednesday: Venison burgers with chipotle chilli cheese on a bun with skinny fries.
Thursday: Turkey breast with vegetables. Healthy tea before a week of gluttony.
Friday: We're both off work on Friday, so will probably pop somewhere for lunch and therefore skip an evening meal.
Saturday: Steak, wedges and peas. Simple yet hugely effective. Will probably be baking like a fiend too. I'm not going to lie to you... I'm going to end up eating 'some' of it...
Sunday: I have no idea what we're up to on Sunday! But, I have decided to leave this open as it's Jubilee weekend!
I've linked this post to Mrs M's - have a look at all the other Meal Planning Mondays!
What's your favourite summer evening meal? I'm looking for suggestions please! x
