I must say I am so pleased to be back to my weekly meal planning, during the past few weeks I wasn’t planning our meals as usual. I didn’t meal plan because I just didn’t have the mindset to think and I didn’t have the energy to
visit the grocery store for a long period. In the end, I had to start planning again, going shopping for food 3 times a week is frustrating, I would much prefer to be spending the time at home with the family or doing something productive.
To get back into my routine I took the easy option, the week prior to this meal plan we had basic meals, nothing extravagant or needing a recipe. I needed to be kind to myself to get back into routine. I have been making muffins from packets, meals using the seasoned sachets such as the stir-frys from McCormicks and meat that just needed heating in the oven (frozen fish portions or something from the butcher). I have found being kind to myself was what I needed to find my way back to the kitchen. If you don’t meal plan, I recommend you try it, even just for a week, you will see the benefits. You will find here more tips on How to meal plan and my past meal plans for ideas.

I made this dessert for a BBQ lunch we went to over the weekend. I prepared it the night before the BBQ, it was very easy to make and not very time consuming. It was so delicious and tasted like chocolate heaven.
