First week back at work was fine. We switched the actual dinners around a little, but it pretty much went as planned.

MrB and I have both installed an app called ‘Expenditure’ to help us with budget tracking. Rather than fiddling with receipts, we can put expenses in our phones, and export to a spreadsheet ( we can also email the tallies). This should give us an idea of how much we’re spending, and alert us to any potential slow leaks.

And to this week’s menu plan.
Dinners:
Sat: roast veg and lentil salad and fresh bread
Sun: roast veggie wraps with hummus & falafel
Mon: lentil burgers, potato salad & green salad
Tues: blackbean tacos
Wed: chickpea and pumpkin curry
Thur: rice paper wraps
Fri: mushroom & zucchini and walnut risotto.

Lunches:
Kale/tofu ‘frittata’, leftovers

Breakfasts:
Smoothies, toast and hummus, toast and peanut butter

Snacks:
Almonds, veggie sticks, homemade snack bars (from freezer)

Weekend Prep: Sat- bake bread, soak and cook chickpeas & lentils, make chutney, roast veggies.
Sun- make hummus & lentil burgers, make kale frittata, prep potato salad, put black beans in fridge to thaw.
