Hello! Happy Friday. I’m sorry that I missed the meal plan last week. We did still meal plan at home, and stick to it well, I just didn’t have the heart for blogging and sharing life for a few days. I feel back on track now! We’ve got a Hello Fresh box this week, then I think I feel mentally ready to try meal planning and cooking from my own imagination again!

I love the convenience of Hello Fresh and am going to write about it soon. I just feel that some of the meal choices are getting a little samey so I might skip 1-2 weeks then see how I feel about going back to it!

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.

Planning our meals is a great way for us to save money, stay organised and eat delicious, tasty meals. I really enjoy cooking, and love making something new at least weekly.

At the moment our meal times are one of the highlights of another day staying home together, and so I want to make sure we are enjoying nice food together.

I don’t have a favourite meal plan last week, obviously because the meal plan linky didn’t run!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #128

For the week ahead I’ve loosely planned breakfasts and lunches, to ensure that we have enough items in, and then we are fortunate enough to have a Hello Fresh box coming for most of our dinners which I am very grateful for.

*Get yourself £20 off your first Hello Fresh box!

The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #128 are:

Hello Fresh: Creamy Chicken Masala with Fluffy Rice and Butternut Squash

Hello Fresh: Mexican Beef Loaded Wedges with Zesty Cream, Peppers and Carrots

Hello Fresh: Thyme Roast Chicken with Roasted Veggies and Sweet Chilli Sauce

Hello Fresh: Chicken Rigatoni with Crème Fraîche and Tarragon

Hello Fresh: Caramelised Onion Sausage Traybake with Carrots, Apple and Caramelised Onion Drizzle

Simply Cook night – using up one of the lovely recipe kits I have lying around!

Fakeaway curry night OR kebabs, weather dependent, as we have a gas BBQ now!

That’s it! A nice straight forward week for us. I’m looking forward to not having to plan our meals too much and everything being measured out for me.

    I missed you last week! Love the sound of the sausage traybake, something quite easy to chuck together I think?

    Thanks for hosting. I am loving all your Hello Fresh meals. I really do need to see what they can do for allergies and try them.
