Looks like a reasonable surplus to me. Don't know what you're intending for peri-workout nutrition. Get the numbers for your calories and macros. As always don't bulk to hard if it's not necessary. Oh, and just know that meal frequency doesn't have to be so high unless you can't get your needed values in otherwise.

you havent listed calories and portion sizes but it looks ok

Maybe clean it up a little - ie. steak instead of burger

I assume you're eating the cheese for some fat in your diet, maybe think about subbing that for some natural peanut butter, tastes delicious and gives some good mono-unsaturates

If you do insist on cheese, i know i like some now and again

opt for continental, ie french cheese

studies have shown because they come from grass-fed cows the nutrient values tend to be a lot higher for almost everything from calcium, omega 3's to CLA etc...

as far as supplementation goes it looks ok, not directly related to mass gain but i'd add an omega 3 fish oil supp just for the enormous amount of health benifits that come with it.

if you want a bulk specific supp - get a blender and just mix whey, oats, raw milk (if you can get it) the standard supermarket stuff is poisin IMO and peanut butter and blend away. I chuck in a banana for good measure or any fruit of your choice. Buying the pre-packaged stuff is just a waste of money and they pack loads of shitty sugars and sat fats in.
