The Meal Planning Linky – Week 14 – 6th April

Welcome to Week 15 of The Meal Planning Linky. This is a linky hosted by Naomi at The Organised Life Project and Katy at KatykickerAnyone is welcome to join – just check out the rules below.

I know we all need a bit of inspiration and motivation when it comes to meal planning. That’s why we’ve launched The Meal Planning Linky. We’ll share our posts about meal planning, and you can link yours up too. Seeing others’ meal plans – and sharing our own – not only keeps us accountable but also will inspire us.

Our Meal Plans for the Week Ahead


Despite doing a meal plan last week, it went completely out of the window when my husband said he would pop to the shops to pick up a few things for lunch. I had planned to do a food shop on Monday – I usually pick it up on my way home from work – so we didn’t have very much in. Well, when he was in Aldi, Tim decided to take advantage of the offers he saw and pick up several packets of fish. So we didn’t actually eat from our meal plan at all last week. By the time we’d had cod and salmon on Monday and Tuesday, I didn’t think I could do Kedgeree or Fishcakes at the end of the week. So I ended up going completely off plan.

It’s a bit frustrating when that happens, because I like to plan our meals both for variety and cooking time. As I’ve said before, on my working days I like to have really simple, easy meals that take little attention and little time. However, it is a good reminder that sometimes I can control things too much and I need to be able to let my husband make choices for our dinners too.

As a result, we’re having very similar meals this week to what I had planned for last week!

Saturday: Roast Pork

Sunday: Leftover Pork, Rigatoni and Tomato Bake

Monday: Frittata

Tuesday: Prawn stir fry

Wednesday: Lamb steaks, new potatoes, salsa verde and vegetables

Thursday: Kedgeree with smoked haddock

Friday: Fishcakes

  • Husband’s and partners are like that! I have to retain control of the shopping or we would spend loads…Have you tried kedgeree with kippers. They are so cheap and just as nice as other smoked fish.

  • Life happens sometimes and we just know how to adjust. Point is, the food you had was still consumed or will be consumed as long as they are stored properly. I’m off to check what a kedgeree is as I am clueless. Thanks for the inspiration each week.

  • The roast and pasta bake with the leftovers sounds delicious, as do the fishcakes and stir fry. I’ve planned really simple, quick, and tasty meals this week for back to school – and hopefully warmer weather.
