    Just thought i'd post my weekly plans for meals. I am a very organised person and plan all meals weekly and then go to Tescos once a week for everything on the list for the week.
    I have a chart on the kitchen cupboard with the plan on so everyone can see what there having all week.

    so have just spent the last hour doing this weeks list ( nomally do it on a sunday eve, but been competing all weekend and have a extra day off today so just done it now)

    so Monday ( today) GREEN
    Lunch - Spaghetti carbonarra with quorn ham - Free and HEB for cheese
    Dinner - Quorn lasagne - HEA and 4syns for packet cheese sauce
    Pudding - fresh fruit, ff yogurt and meringue - 3

    Tuesday - GREEN
    Lunch - Quorn ham, egg and sw chips - FREE
    Dinner - Quorn sausage caserole - FREE
    Pudding - Berry french toast - 3

    Wednesday - GREEN
    Lunch- - Jacket potato with beans and cheese - Free and HEA
    Dinner - Stir fry with quorn steak fillets.( Hubby is having HE of chicken) 2 syns for home made sweet and sour sauce
    pudding - fruit, ff yogurt and meringue 3 syns

    Thursday - Green ( red Huby)
    Lunch - warm lentil salad
    Dinner - falafels in pita bread with red cabbage salad and dip Free and HEB for pitta ( not strictly on the list i dont think)
    pudding - Poached Pears - 3 syns ( i refuse to syn 1 pear cooked!!)

    Friday - Green
    Lunch - Macaroni quiche and Wedges- Free
    Dinner - Tuna napolitana HEB for Tuna
    Pudding - soufle omlete with fruit - free

    Saturday - Green
    Lunch - Home made soup
    Dinner - Frittata and rosti - HEA or HEB for cheese
    pudding - Chocolate mousse - 3 syns

    Sunday - Green
    Lunch - Layered past and cheese salad - HEA
    Dinner - Aloo gobi and rice and mango chutney - 2 syns
    Pudding - Strawberry scones with no sugar jelly 3 syns

    Hope theres some ideas there for anyone

    I'll try to work out how to post my chart........mmmmm

    Hey Honey
    Your meals list looks great and has given me a few ideas :)
    Do you always have green weeks or alternate?
    This is day 6 for me on SW and so far I have been having green days every day!

    I am vegetarian so always Green days for me ( i do eat fish so have fish as a HEB on those days.) Hubby does eat meat, but only has 1 red day a week, with our budget and me being a veggie its easier to have 6 green and 1 red. he'll often have a small amount of meat as a HEB on a green ( stir fry day he's having chicken, i'm having quorn)

    You do know you can have two Hexa choices when doing Green or Red days, right?

    Yeah i know, i am still following the plan from years ago when you could only have 1 HEA......... BUT things like cheesey mugshots and tinned macaroni cheese and batchelors macaroni cheese packet pasta were all free, now they have a syn value becasue of 2 HEA's. (i still think of syns and SINS, which is what they were before) so i stick to that, worked for me, but if i know i haven't had anything like that i don't stress about a bit of extra milk or cheese. I am at target now and working out how to maintain!

    wow, how organised are you. I'd just never keep to it - and my DD would eat something I got in for 'us' - DH & Me doing SW together, whilst I was at work and throw out my plan altogether !

    Incidentally I make a lasagne without the creamy cheesey-saucey thingummy. Just make a lot of tinned tomatoe and veg and layer that over the lasagne sheets - cover with tin foil so the sauce penetrates the sheets and then for the last 10 minutes sprinkle on your HEA cheese for the day and pop back in the oven for the last 10 mins.

    LOVELY
