I haven’t done a proper meal plan for about a month now, blaming it on the fact I’ve been really busy. Of course, this is exactly the reason I should be more organised and plan my meals carefully! So I’m back on track this week with my weekly meal plan.

It seems that Autumn is finally upon us as the evenings have started to turn chilly – I’ve even had to put the heating on! So my thoughts have turned to good hearty foods and the slow cooker will shortly claim its space on the work surface. I foresee many stews, casseroles and soups over the coming months…

This week I have been having a look through a recipe book I bought in Sainsbury’s called Classic Recipe Collection, which contains lots of great dishes that are ideal for this time of year. So here is what we will be eating this week.

Monday – Meatballs

Tuesday – Chicken and asparagus risotto

Wednesday – Spaghetti bolognese (page 68 – Classic Recipe Collection)

Thursday – Bangers and mash

Friday – Chicken and ham pie (page 80 – Classic Recipe Collection)

Saturday – French onion soup

Sunday – Roast beef and Yorkshire puddings
