Meal Plan Monday

Monday again, and with my new resolution to blog every week here I am!

Monday - shepherds pie (technically cottage pie)
Tuesday - nachos (yum!)
Wednesday - pasta bolognese
Thursday - soup, cheese twists and chunky bread
Friday - fajitas
Saturday - lasagne
Sunday - roast dinner (not sure what yet though)

My children seem to be on yet another growth spurt and are eating me out of house and home at the moment, so trying to slow them up with stodge!

A whole year!

While faffing about with my blog on my phone, I realised Unstable is a whole year old!

This is pretty amazing really, as I rarely stick to anything for very long. It is not that I'm particularly flaky, more that I get a bit disheartened when things don't go quite to plan.

It is not as if this had been a roaring success, I'm sure the people who follow this do so in return for me following their blogs. But I actually don't mind, I'm not really doing this for anyone but myself, and if I get a comment it is just like a bonus! Unstable is just somewhere I can escape mentally (maybe not so much now that my husband follows it ;D )


I now have Blogger on my phone, so if it works, I will be able to blog much more easily...

My Meal Plan Monday

Monday Meal Plan blog posts are quite popular, so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and give it a go. I figured it would at the very least get me back to my poor neglected blog a bit more often.

I nearly aways meal plan, I can't remember a time when I haven't had a vague meal plan in mind when I went shopping.

So, here is this weeks:

Monday Jacket potatoes with beans and cheese
Tuesday Chicken and Ham pie
Wednesday Ikea Meatballs, oven chips and peas
Thursday Tuna Pasta Bake
Friday Homemade Burgers with salad and relish
Saturday Homemade pizza (well, dough made in the breadmaker, sort of homemade)
Sunday Roast of some sort

So, there you have it, my first Meal Plan Monday. Not very inspiring, and very little that could be called 'cooking' but I am trying to empty the freezer before doing a big shop at the weekend (that is my excuse and I am sticking it!)


Another Monday morning has rolled around alarmingly fast. We have had a busy weekend full of birthday parties and tired, grumpy children. Also, the usual laundry mountain, Mount Washmore, has almost doubled in size.

I have been pretty slack on the blog front recently, but I have some really good excuses reasons; firstly, my wonderful husband bought me the Hunger Games Trilogy, so that was a whole weekend lost. Then I have been trying desperately to get my mare ready for hunting, throw a half term into the mix and some patchy internet (thanks Virgin) and the blog has been thoroughly neglected.  But I do have some posts coming up, and a plan (I always have plans) on how to keep blogging more regularly. In fact, this should be the first of two posts today!
