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.

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.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #129 Meal Plan

Good morning & happy Friday! Another week has zoomed by in our house. A week of house jobs, cleaning, work and not much else, but it has felt good anyway! I’m feeling super grateful to have childcare for 20 hours a week or so at the moment, to allow me to start getting on with some of my ‘one day’ work jobs that I have been meaning to get around to doing for absolutely months.

This week I’m going to get a Hello Fresh box in, well, on Monday, with 5 dinners in. This means that I don’t really have much planning to do this week, and instead I can just focus that time on working hard and achieving lots around my home.

I love the convenience of Hello Fresh and am definitely going to write about it soon. I do feel like the meal choices have become a little samey for me, but I’m looking forward to our meal after a week off!

Meal planning helps us to have low food waste which is really important to me. I feel really sad if we have to throw something in the bin, thinking of both the environmental impact and the fact that other people struggle to afford food.

I am always trying to take steps to make sure we are avoiding overspending on groceries.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #128 Meal Plan

Hello! Happy Friday. I’m sorry that I missed the meal plan last week. We did still meal plan at home, and stick to it well, I just didn’t have the heart for blogging and sharing life for a few days. I feel back on track now! We’ve got a Hello Fresh box this week, then I think I feel mentally ready to try meal planning and cooking from my own imagination again!

I love the convenience of Hello Fresh and am going to write about it soon. I just feel that some of the meal choices are getting a little samey so I might skip 1-2 weeks then see how I feel about going back to it!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #126 Meal Plan

Hello! Happy Friday. Another week is almost over! Next week Thomas is off work so I’m looking forward to lots of family time. We’re still loving the Hello Fresh boxes, so I have one of those for next week to make meal times easier.

I love the convenience of it, and have been fortunate to get some nice credit from other people signing up for a discount box too!
