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 grin

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.

Tempus- prawn noodle soup sounds lovely. And I have just defeated the object of meal planning by going to buy the ingredients to the Jamie stew. Making it for tonight, sounds delightful, can't wait.

So with the resulting leftover parsnips carrots I will plan the rest of the week.

Thursday- chicken and chorizo stew or paella as I really fancy it now grin

Friday- chicken laksa/something Thai or Chinese, dc away and its my favourite cuisine to experiment with when if it fails takeaway

Saturday- minestrone

Sunday- mustard glazed slow cooked pork with mash, roasted parsnips and yorkshires.

Monday- leftover pork ,onion and potato pasties

Tuesday- roasted pumpkin with chunky tomato sauce and maybe melted mozzarella if I'm feeling flash.
