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
Tuesday: Prawn stir fry
Wednesday: Lamb steaks, new potatoes, salsa verde and vegetables
Thursday: Kedgeree with smoked haddock
