Our Weekly Meal Plan!! - #mealplanningmonday



Last week I wasn't feeling too good and I muddled through....I seemed to lose all interest in food. Eating and cooking it.....Thankfully yesterday I was feeling better and I made the Apple and Pork Casserole which was so good.....The kids loved it too which is fantastic as Becky can be fussy when it comes to casseroles.....

This is the last full week of the school holidays so I have given control over to the kids....They discussed it between themselves and came up with a meal plan....I expected them to say pizza for every night but didn't! Phew! I think I have trained them well.....It probably isn't the healthiest or exciting weeks but it's their favourite meals....

It's Ellie's birthday on Saturday.....We usually go out for a meal but Ellie has got it into her head she wants to go to the local soft play! She was very sensible and said if we go to soft play we can just get a takeaway for her tea.....That is fine with me....She has chosen Chinese as her takeaway of choice....It also means we won't miss the start of the new series of X-Factor!

This week on the menu we have:

  • Cottage pie & baked beans....
  • Spaghetti Bolognese....
  • Chicken nuggets, chips and spaghetti hoops....
  • Sandwiches, sausage rolls & cakes....
  • A fry up....Sausage, bacon, mushrooms, onion rings, bacon, tomatoes, beans, toast and a cup of tea....
  • Chinese takeaway for Ellie's birthday....
  • A fancy roast chicken dinner with everything you can think of....We have family visiting! 

As always I've joined in with the wonderful Mrs M's #mealplanningmonday linky....

  12. I need to take a leaf out of your book and meal plan. I always try to when I do the food shop but fail miserably! Roast dinners are a must though aren't they! x

  17. It's so tough when you just lose your cooking mojo. Chinese takeaway definitely sounds like the sort of thing that will make you all better though :)

    1. You should....It's great for saving a bit of money and I always end up with less waste to throw out at the end of the week x

  20. Oh I haven't had a Chinese in ages! I could just do with one though! I think if I could choose any meals for the week it would be pizza, pizza and more pizza. So your girls have done really well! Enjoy!

  21. Our menu planning efforts always seem to be discarded by Wednesday evenings bu,t they should save money and make shopping easier. Note to self must try harder!
