Meal planning is something that I have really come to enjoy in the last few months. Meal planning helps keep us from buying takeaways, helps us eat healthier and has become an enjoyable part of my week. I love being able to look at a week’s meal plan, shop for the groceries and know that we have lots of nice meals to choose from. Today I’m sharing the Meal Planning Linky Week #7.

Meal planning allows me to remove some of the stress from our daily life. I’m able to look each morning and see what food I fancy eating. Also, if we are going to be busy then I can choose a slow cooker dinner and get that on in the morning. This allows us to sit down to a hot meal with minimal effort at a busy time of day.

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 is a weekly linky. Naomi and I will be sharing our week’s meal plan and would love you to link yours up too. By sharing meal plans we can all keep ourselves accountable and inspire one another with new ideas and recipes.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #7

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 #7 are:

A week of slow cooker dinners Slow-cooker-pulled-pork-a-look-at-the-finished-pork

Slow cooker pulled pork

Fish dish (Any suggestions?)

Slow cooker beef keema

Slow cooker Beef keema curry with rice in the slow cooker

Slow cooker cottage pie filling - a look at the cooked filling

Sausage Cassoulet - A look at the finished dish

Lamb dish (any suggestions?)

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!

    For the fish dish, I love fish pies or fish cakes. It’s one you can flavour however your family likes it and put your own twist on things. Thanks for the chance to link up. I’m enjoying each week.

    For some reason I can’t see your photos at the moment but I am liking the sound of the keema curry.

      Ahh sorry to hear that. Hope they are working now! The curry is delicious!

    Loving your slow cooker meals of Sausage Cassoulet, Beet Keema and Cottage Pie this week perfect for busy days, and freezing leftovers for later. We had baked fish with white beans last week, an all in one traybake dinner which was delicious and really easy to make. I’m cooking a lamb meatball and root vegetable traybake this week which always goes down with my lot.

      That fish traybake sounds delicious – right up my street! Also, traybakes in general are something I need to look at more! Yum!
