Meal Planning Monday

So I had a really lovely pottering weekend. On Saturday morning I went to the Poster Art 150 exhibition, which is the London Transport Museum's poster exhibition to mark 150 years of the Tube. It was incredible with some really fantastic examples of posters. In the afternoon I sorted out the garden and did housework and then on Sunday morning I woke really early and went to the gym, I was in the gym at 7.50! That's how early I woke! In the afternoon I went to a Georgian Londoner's talk at the British Library which was really interesting but there was so much detail in the talk that it felt a bit like information overload.

I came back and made two quiches to use up the rest of a pot of creme fraiche as I hate any sort of food waste.

The first is a Goat's Cheese, Sorrel and Spinach quiche and the second is Quiche Lorraine. I made two mini versions of each, broke a quiche dish in the process and froze them.

This week is busy at work with lots of teaching and outside of that I have a trip to the theatre, an open evening and hopefully some relaxation next weekend.

  1. Your weekend sounds a bit similar to mine (well, the pottering and the gym and the cooking anyways LOL). I always love reading your meal plan, it sounds so exciting and you never seem to eat the same thing twice! Mine is always left over this and left over that. I guess that's what happens when you are the only one eating what you cook! ;)

    1. I eat lots of leftovers too, I just freeze them all so I have much bigger gaps between eating them! I like trying new things though and it's definitely easier when the only person I have to satisfy is me!
