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
We did fairly well at sticking to our meal plan last week, although it was a bit of an unpredictable week: both Tim and Samuel were ill, so we had grandparents with us on Monday night, I had parents’ evening on Tuesday night and we had several days of gloriously hot weather. I switched a few things around and it all worked out ok.
This week, I’m aware that we’ve got quite a few things stashed in the freezer – things like 2 chicken breasts leftover from a big pack, and some leftover portions of things. So I’m going to try very hard not to do any supermarket shopping – just for things that perish quickly or we get through a lot, like fruit and yoghurt. Does anyone else get through a lot of yoghurt? I think we could easily get through 15 in a week.
Saturday: Chicken Fajitas
Sunday: Pasta carbonara
Monday: Beef Tagine (from the freezer)
Tuesday: Stuffed peppers with leftover pork mince
Wednesday: Fish fingers, chips and peas – it’s going to be really busy as Samuel has a medical appointment and we won’t get home until late
Thursday: Beef stir fry (beef in freezer)
Friday: I hardly ever say this, but either a takeaway or a pub dinner. It’ll be pay day and after a week of using up meals from the freezer, I think we’ll deserve it.
