Meal Planning Monday - Heatwave Edition!

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


  1. I just can't do meal planning! I eat out too much and quite a lot is spontaneous - but I really admire people who do.

    I tend to eat quite a lot of fish in summer. Baked or barbequed with a few fresh herbs and some lemon!

    1. We eat out sooo much, and it can be quite spontaneous but this gives me something to fall back on!

  2. A FABULOUS week of meal planning....and I think I could EAT ALL of your suggestions! I have started to post a meal plan, the days sometimes slide a bit, but it is a great aide memoir to have when I am stuck for something to make. I TRY to stick to it when I can! Karen
