Having an organised life has become really important to my family in recent months. With me working on building up my online business and illness in our family we’ve got lots going on. By meal planning we are able to cut down on takeaways, eat healthier meals and take advantage of special offers at the supermarket to save money. 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 #6.

Life can be stressful at times. Having a meal plan to hand just removes some of the effort and time wasted thinking about what to make for dinner and looking for ingredients. By meal planning before I go shopping I’m able to make a list of the ingredients that we require and ensure we have everything to hand to make dinner every night.

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 #6

I will be planning 6 meals per week. This leaves 1 day each week for finishing 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 #6 are:

Bolognese pasta bake

Bolognese pasta bake

Airfryer roast potatoes

Slow cooker whole chicken with all the trimmings (including airfryer roast potatoes & sage & onion stuffing)

A week of slow cooker dinners Slow-cooker-beef-casserole-A-look-at-the-dinner-once-the-flour-has-been-added

Slow cooker beef casserole

Pasta dish (with homemade pasta)

Scottish Friendly - No Spend Weekend - our calzone

Calzone with airfryer fries

Slow cooker chicken saag curry

Slow cooker chicken saag curry with 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!

    Such creative ideas, Katy. Look at you making pasta from scratch! I am going to rekindle my love for this. Plus looking into getting one of those air fryer things. Thanks for sharing and for allowing us to share too.

      The airfryer is amazing and we eat much healthier now than when we fried foods!

    Impressed you made your own pasta. I have a pasta machine gathering dust, and keep meaning to try it with the children as I’m sure they’d enjoy the process.

      I find it quite therapeutic and it tastes much superior I find x

    We’re having roast chicken this week too, I had toyed with the idea of a massive family sized calzone but am saving that for another week. We’ve not made our own pasta in ages, what a fab Half Term activity that would be 🙂

    • katykicker February 17, 2018 / 2:05 pm

      That’s a great idea for a half-term activity! x
