So here it is, as promised, the second of my #7daysofsavvy meal plans. 7 days, 7 dinners.

What a weird week it’s been weather wise….it’s so hard to know what to cook. We’ve gone from ‘i’m too hot to even contemplate eating’, to comfort food and jumpers. I’m trying really hard at this very moment to stop myself giving the heating a quick blast. My current view
