Weekly Meal Plan | Italy + The Middle East

Good morning and welcome to Monday! I don't usually write this on a Monday as I would usually pre-write it on Sunday evening, however yesterday I was so tired and had loads of other things to do, so this could wait. 

So last week's meals were all a success! (see last week's meal plan for all the links to recipes below)

Monday's lentil veggie chilli was super tasty and filling, although I still couldn't help myself having a second helping! 

I think tagine's are becoming my new fave meal due to how simple they are so cook - just throw everything all in one pot! The chicken, lemon, date and apricot tagine was really yummy and so easy to make. I'd wished I'd made more!

We don't eat enough pasta for our evening meals, which is strange since my husband is Italian! The aubergine and mozzarella pasta though was definitely one I'll be re-making time and time again!

Thursday I tested a recipe from Andorran cuisine - see my JessEats food and travel blog for the recipe; coming out this week!


I've become really good recently at picking up reduced items when shopping, and I couldn't help pick up some sticky pork belly ribs when in Tesco last week. We'll serve it with some glutinous rice which needs to be eaten this month!


Tonight i'll be heading off to Babel in Cheltenham to have dinner with an old work colleague from way back in 2014! I haven't seen her for such a long time, so it'll be nice to catch up!


Still making the effort to eat healthier weekly meals, I thought this Chicken, Broccoli and Bulgar Wheat Salad from Searching for Spice looked like the perfect choice. 


Okay, so I know this isn't entirely healthy but since we've got a ton of pasta to use in the larder, I thought Curly's Cooking's Sausage, Mustard and Basil Pasta would be a good one to try! It looks super creamy and comforting! 


Today i'll be testing a recipe from Angolan cuisine (featuring peanuts + my slow-cooker!) I've also got my parents, as well as my sister and nephew arriving to stay, so I'm not sure if we'll eat this together or head to our local pub! I may end up making this Thursday evening and eating it for lunch on Friday instead.

What sort of meals do you have planned this week? Would love to hear in the comments!
