Being organised makes a HUGE difference in our day to day life. Every week, on a Sunday, I sit down and I work out what we are going to eat for the week and make a shopping list. My lovely husband does the shopping and then I look at the engagements we have on our calendar for the next week. Meal planning is a God send for us! Today I’m sharing the Meal Planning Linky Week #15.

Meal planning is surprisingly easy once you get into it. I spend about 10-15 minutes a week working on a meal plan, and writing a shopping list. The money that this saves us is well worth the time I invest.

We are saving a lot of money, especially as I have switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi.

Want some inspiration for meal planning? New to meal planning?

I’ve recently reviewed the Reduce Your Food Spend course. This is a fantastic course that teaches you everything you need to know about meal planning, building a stockpile and more. It comes with printables and even a full weeks meal plan example for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Why not *click here to enrol on the course and use the code HALFOFFAPR to save 50%!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #15

I will be planning 5 meals each week. This leaves 2 days per week for using up leftovers, dining out or visiting 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 plans.

My meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #15 are:

Rubber roast chicken

Slow cooker whole chicken with airfryer roast potatoes, sage & onion stuffing

chicken, spinach, filo pie - A look at the finished pie

Chicken, spinach & filo pie (with roast leftovers)

Slow cooker beef keema

Beef keema curry with slow cooker rice

Easy homemade garlic bread - look at the bread once it has been dressed! Delicious

Fresh pasta, pasta sauce & garlic bread

A week of slow cooker dinners Slow-cooker-beef-chilli-A-sneak-peek-at-the-end-result

Slow cooker beef chilli with slow cooker rice

My *triple slow cooker is really helpful when I want to make us a slow cooker dinner. I’m able to make us the 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. Yay!

If you’re looking for meal planning inspiration then be sure to read my meal planning tips and my meal planning with mince post. I’ve also got a post about making a roast chicken go further.

    Hi Katy
    I couldn’t agree with you more about shopping in Aldi. It saved me at least £30 a week on my family shop. That’s £1500 a year!!

    That keema curry and pie look absolutely delicious!! I’m always buying mince because it’s cheap and filling, but never quite know what to do with it other than the usual chilli/lasagne/bolognaise so might have a try of that!

    Oh wow your meals sound amazing for this week! I really need to try a roast chicken in the slow cooker.

      It’s SO delicious! Love using the leftovers up too and it makes a lovely stock for gravy too x

    The chicken filo pie and beef keema look delicious, it’s a very tasty way to use up leftover roast chicken leftovers.

    Fab menu plan! I love seeing what you have planned. I haven’t done a chicken in the slow cooker for ages.

      Thank you! I love that it makes its own base for a lovely homemade gravy too!
