The Meal Planning Linky Week #131 Meal Plan

Morning, Happy Friday! Going to be a bit of a strange weekend for a lot of us I’m sure with people starting to visit family/go outside more etc. I’m looking forward to a nice lazy day on Sunday, at home, and perhaps a nice family walk too!

Last week I mentioned that I was going back to meal planning more myself, however, I then decided last minute to get a Mindful Chef box, so the meals we were going to eat last week we’re now going to have this week! So sorry if this post is a little bit repetitive!

I managed to get a click & collect Tesco shop for next week, after visiting the store Monday, and I’m super grateful for that! I have avoided taking delivery slots, as I know there were people much more in need, but apparently slots are more freely available now, so in a few more weeks I may go back to getting our usual weekly delivery.

Pizza dough in the breadmaker – cheap and fun!

My husband and I love a nice takeaway. It is a bit of a weakness really! We have resolved to have fewer takeaways this year. So far we have cut the amount considerably. This is great for money saving and it is great for our waistline too. We have managed to save money on takeaways that we do buy.

I love making homemade pizzas. They are SO cheap, compared to takeaways. Also, they are easy and best of all they are a bit fun too! I’m sharing with you today my recipe to make pizza dough in the breadmaker, and tips on how to make a cheese stuffed crust pizza too.

Homemade garlic butter

I absolutely love to cook from scratch. If something is a favourite in this house at some point I’m going to try and make it myself. I find I can turn my hand to just about any meal, side or snack, and mostly enjoy it too. This homemade garlic butter is an absolute doddle to make, and forms the basis of lots of tasty fresh pasta lunches, and makes a perfect garlic bread too.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #130 Meal Plan

Hello, Happy Friday! I can’t believe how long I have been running this meal planning linky for now. 130 weeks? Wow! This week has been a great one, lots got done around our home and we’ve had scaffolders, and roofers and all sorts here!

This week I’m going back to some meal planning of my own. We’re having a break from Hello Fresh, because I have some Simply Cook kits that need using up! You can get paid *£20 off Hello Fresh and a *FREE Simply Cook box.

I do love how convenient Hello Fresh is but I don’t want the kits I have to expire and go to waste, so I’m going to visit Lidl and do a big shop for all of the recipes I have planned.
