My Simon Howie Family Meal Planner Box Challenge – Day 7!

So I have made it to day 7 – the FINAL day of my Simon Howie Family Meal Planner Box Challenge and what a week it has been! Going into the last day I have already made 27 out of the promised 28 portions that the meat box would provide!

On day 1 we chose to cook the Chicken Kievs as it was a busy day with little time to cook. Day 2 was a slightly different story, so I got a little more creative with the Beef Steak Mince, and on day 3 it was the Beef and Pepper Kebabs which came to the rescue! My last post was day 4, where I used the chicken fillets to make a tasty Saturday night dinner, and on day 5 I used the whole chicken to make a pot roast dinner (which was delicious!).

Going into day 6 I had already made 23 portions of the promised 28 portions that the box would provide… so only 5 left, proving that the box is already giving more than advertised!

So – what would day 6 bring? Well today was a beautiful sunny day so a BBQ was in order… and this called for the sausages!

So day 5 sees us on Sunday and, as a bit of a Traditionalist, this only means one thing…. SUNDAY ROAST! And was this a problem with my Family Meal Planner Box? Well, no – as the box contains a whole chicken… perfect for that Sunday dinner!

On day 1 we chose to cook the Chicken Kievs as it was a busy day with little time to cook. Day 2 was a slightly different story, so I got a little more creative with the Beef Steak Mince, and in 2 days I had managed to rustle up 9 portions out of the promised 28!

Day 3 was another busy day, so a quick dinner was needed (to fit in between swimming and a PTFA meeting!)  – and that is where the Beef and Pepper Kebabs were PERFECT!

I chose to use the 500g pack of Extra Lean Steak Mince to create a Bolognase Bake – a family meal ideal to prepare in advance then heat up to serve when it was needed!
