come share your weekly meal plan with me..(15 Posts)
I usually meal plan, but lately I've fallen off the wagon and have already noticed how much I waste without having a plan.
A good old meal plan thread never fails to inspire me, so please tell me what your eating this week (and next if you know) help me get out of my rut
Trying to save money this week, but also like to eat healthy meals, so is a bit of a balancing act. Using stuff up in freezer/cupboards.
Mon - chicken with spicy rub, salad (kids had cucumber/pepper sticks, I had rocket & parmesan salad, cherry tomatoes, baked garlicky mushrooms) and part baked baguettes.
Tues - dh out, probably a chicken and chorizo paella for me and the kids as I have some chorizo and peppers to use up. Or I'll do a chicken tagine.
Wed - homemade pepperoni pizza (pasta and sauce for ds who hates pizza) with salad
Thur - gammon, potato wedges, pineapple, sweetcorn and possibly poached eggs if I have enough.
Fri - Fishfingers and potato wedges for kids as we are going out to eat. SIL and her dh coming to babysit and I offered them dinner so will use up the chilli in the freezer and get in some sour cream as I know they like it.
Sat - burgers in buns with salad.
Sun - beef and carrot stew with yorkshire puddings. Usually have friends over for dinner so may end up making another pizza so don't have to go shopping.
