Hello loves, I hope you and your family are all keeping well. It’s such a hard time at the moment but I’m just trying to keep up with my routines and do the best I can to keep family life ticking over.

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.

Meal planning makes me feel a little more in control. It is a simple way to feel organised, eat well, avoid wasting money and do what I can to avoid food waste too.

My favourite meal plan from last week: Our weekly meal plan from Mummy Vs Work

The Meal Planning Linky Week #119

I like to plan 7 dinners for most weeks. We tend to eat 5-6 of them, rather than 7, but it means we have lots of choices and sometimes we can have a hot lunch to share if we want to.

The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #119 are:

Slow cooker beef casserole - A look at the dinner once the flour has been added

Slow cooker roast gammon, airfryer roast potatoes, sage and onion stuffing, Yorkshires, onion gravy, airfryer parsnips and more.

    The slow cooker gammon looks good! I am back to low carb as it has transformed my health, I am convinced. Stay well.

      I’m so pleased that low carb is helping you! x

    I love gammon though want to pick at it way too much. As always all your meals sound so comforting and just what we need

      Thanks lovely, hope you’re keeping well! x

    We are having gammon today, we love it. I like the idea of a bolognese pasta bake, I might suggest that instead of our usual bolognese this week

    • katykicker April 20, 2020 / 3:07 pm

      Oh yay – hope you enjoy it!

    The calzone and the slow cooker gammon would go down a treat here we haven’t had either in a while. Hope your not struggling too much with lockdown
