Another week, another meal plan.

Remember how I said that we were participating in the Omega 3 Heart Challenge? This past week was a little more successful, I’m happy to say. I managed to get them to eat the tuna flan (recipe coming) and the home-made fish and chips.

Bill makes a mean fish and chips.

Monday – Tacos

TuesdayTuna Patties and salad

Wednesday – Spinach and Potato Frittata (recipe below)

Thursday – Honey Bangers and Mash

Friday – Home-made Pizzas

What’s on your meal plan this week?

Hmm..remind me never to read your Meal Plans too early in the morning when all I’ve had for breakfast is a piece of toast. :s You’re making me salivate! The fritata looks really good and easy to make too. Might try making that but substituting the spinach with diced tomatoes….yummm…
