Meal planning is something that I have really come to love in recent months. Meal planning helps us avoid buying takeaways, helps us to eat healthier meals and has become an important part of my organisational week. Being able to look at a meal plan, and choose what we are going to eat, takes some of the stress away from our day. Today I’m sharing the Meal Planning Linky Week #11.

Day to day life can feel a little stressful at times. Like a lot of parents, I’m juggling multiple activities on a daily basis, and I’m also fitting in working from home too. Meal planning saves me time and effort and best of all it saves us money in the process!

By holding myself accountable, with a meal plan, I am making healthier choices for us. We are cutting out on the takeaways, preparing food from scratch and saving ourselves money too. I have switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi and this has helped our grocery budget too.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #11

I’ll be planning 5 meals per week each week. This leaves 2 days a week for eating leftovers, dining out or visiting friends and family for dinner. We don’t have set days for our meals, as I prefer to decide in the morning which of the meals we want and what fits in with our day’s plans.

My meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #11 are:

Scottish Friendly - No Spend Weekend - our calzone

Calzone + airfryer chips

Fish pie + vegetables

A week of slow cooker dinners - Jacket-potatoes-in-the-slow-cooker-A-look-at-the-finished-result

Beef chilli + jacket potatoes in the slow cooker

Spaghetti bolognese + garlic bread

Homemade Chinese (Sweet & sour chicken + rice in the slow cooker)

My *triple slow cooker is really helpful when I want to make us a slow cooker dinner. I’m able to make us a main dish, a side dish and cook a separate meal for Daisy too. Most of this week’s dinners are Daisy friendly so I won’t have to do that much extra cooking for her. This is always a great week for me!

    Your meals this week sound delicious! I love spag bol and you’ve reminded me that I haven’t made sweet and sour in too long!

    That calzone recipe looks immense! I have never made it. I am usually scared to plan for leftovers in case we eat everything, but do batch cook deliberately and freeze to save time.

    Your meal plan looks lovely as always. I love spaghetti bolognese and I especially love garlic bread!
