Meal Plan #39

Thank you all SO much for all the feedback you gave us on the survey! I have read every single comment (multiple times!) and found your responses both inspiring and enormously helpful. (The survey will be open for another week if you haven’t yet done it. It is only five questions and shouldn’t take more than a minute or two to complete!)

As per the survey results, I’ve decided to continue with my meal plans (which I was ready to ditch!). I do them for myself every single week regardless of whether or not I post them, but given that you all find them helpful, I’ll keep sharing them as well! So here we go again: welcome to the first meal plan of 2017! Whoop whoop! Continue Reading…

Meal Plan #38


It is half-term craziness around here, so I’m taking things pretty easy. Mostly, I just love an excuse to get some Pieminster pies for dinner (not an ad!). They aren’t super healthy, but they are super delicious indeed and fine for a treat now and then. (They’re also on sale via Ocado right now! Whoop!) I’m also pumped for miso soup night. Every time I make it I kick myself for not making it more often. It is so comforting and yummy, and easy peasy to make! Recipe to come! Continue Reading…

Meal Plan #37


I am so happy for the cooler weather. Summer is great fun, but I adore the cosiness of big wool jumpers, extra blankets on the bed, and comfort foods. Jason and the kids made all sorts of cosy goodies this weekend including some ginger cake that made the entire house smell incredible. He also made a big batch of tartiflette last night that was absolutely amazing (though my lactose intolerant tummy is still paying for it this morning!).  I don’t have anything quite that decadent planned for this week, but I am definitely looking forward to some shrimp tacos and this miso sweet potato broccoli bowl that completely caught my eye on IG last week!

Meal Plan 36


While my niece and I spent the weekend running around London, Jason and the kids were cooking up a storm! We woke up to fresh scones Saturday morning and finished the day with homemade apple pie. Sunday morning they mad fresh loaves of bread, and dinner was a hearty fish pie. Our kitchen is still a bit of a mess because of all the action it got, but it was worth every dirty dish!

Meal Plan 34


Look at me catching up with the blog! Whoop!

We have eight people staying at our house at the moment. In addition to our own four-person family we have my niece who has moved in with us for three months, my friend Kate and her baby girl, and her nanny. It has been busy (and SUPER fun!!) around here! In true Hungermama form, I have meal planned for the entire week and included meals that are both easy to prepare, and hearty enough to feed a crowd. I’ve simplified things even further by sticking to recipes I know and love. <3 (The recipe for the lettuce wraps are coming later this week!)

Meal Plan 31

sweet pot

This is our last week of Charlotte’s summer holidays! She is back to school on Thursday and Pete starts school mid-September. It will be odd to actually have time to myself again! I can’t wait! 😀

I’m excited to be making the teriyaki salmon recipe again this week. It is definitely one of our favourites! I’ll also be trying out a new hungerpot recipe this week. Fingers crossed it turns out!
