My Monday Meal Plans have been shunted to Mid-Week Meal Plans lately – but in one way, I prefer it, as I usually know what I am having on Monday and Tuesday, but it’s the rest of the week I sometimes have issues with, and once I have been shopping at the beginning of the week I am better placed and organised to plan ahead. And, that’s  just how it’s been this week…….but, it has given me to chance to create TWO fabulous new 5:2 Diet (Weight Watchers) recipes to share. One of them, Hungarian Savoury Minced Beef, I am posting today, at the end of my meal plan, the other one, Coronation Potato Salad, will be posted towards the weekend. I am finding myself being drawn more and more to comfort food recipes, as autumn deepens and the first frosts appear, and so it’s with great pleasure that I share my hearty Hungarian Savoury Minced Beef, this is a real comfort meal and is low in calories, but, it is also suitable for a mid-week family supper – frugal and thrifty it may be, but it certainly doesn’t lack in flavour. Anyway, it’s time for my meal plan now, hopefully there will be some recipes to inspire you for the rest of the week, see you later…….Karen
