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
Last week, we stuck to the meal plan pretty well. Tim was away for a few days with work so the chilli I cooked on the Tuesday was really useful – we had it with rice once, jacket potatoes once and nachos as planned. Despite planning pizza for Wednesday lunch time and thinking the boys would only need a sandwich for dinner, they were both really hungry after an afternoon of playing outside so I was glad the chilli stretched!
It’s back to work for me this week, but Ben has Inset days on Monday and Tuesday, so he’s going to stay with his grandparents for a couple of days. Inset days are really tricky for me as a parent and a teacher, as I can’t take any time off and Tim can’t either this week. So I’m really glad the grandparents have come to the rescue!
I’m trying the Healthy Mummy system this week. This is a meal planning and fitness app – they have a £1 trial for 28 days and then it is a bit more. The app so far is really easy to use but the meals don’t look terribly substantial! I’ll let you know how I get on.
Saturday: Ben and I are off to the Big Church Day Out North for the day. We’ll have burgers from a van or something similar and take some sandwiches.
Sunday: Likely to be just Samuel and I as Tim will be taking Ben to his grandparents. We’ll have omelettes or fish fingers – something easy.
Monday: Steak and salad stuffed pittas
Tuesday: Sausage and veggie pasta bake
Wednesday: Sweet and sour chicken and veggie skewers with rice
Thursday: Fish pot pie
Friday: Honey chicken with stir fry vegetables
