Meal Plan, Shopping List and Lots of Pancakes – Week 6

We’ve just got back from holiday where I ate a lot more than I should have, especially pudding. It would have been rude not to as we were surrounded by such goooood food. We took it in turns to cook every night (it was a group holiday) and amazingly each dish came from a different country.

It’s Pancake Day next week! I don’t need an excuse to eat pancakes but we love marking the occasion by hosting a few friends and eating as many as I can make. That’s how I stumbled across my favourite – banana and bacon. So what else is on the menu this week?

What Drives Our Meal Plan?

We chose the baby-led weaning route which means our meals have to be toddler-friendly. We also send him to nursery with lunch and snacks which requires a great deal of organisation. For now, I am happy to put in the effort but at some point I have to decide between expending time or money.
