Good morning & happy Friday! Another week has zoomed by in our house. A week of house jobs, cleaning, work and not much else, but it has felt good anyway! I’m feeling super grateful to have childcare for 20 hours a week or so at the moment, to allow me to start getting on with some of my ‘one day’ work jobs that I have been meaning to get around to doing for absolutely months.
This week I’m going to get a Hello Fresh box in, well, on Monday, with 5 dinners in. This means that I don’t really have much planning to do this week, and instead I can just focus that time on working hard and achieving lots around my home.
I love the convenience of Hello Fresh and am definitely going to write about it soon. I do feel like the meal choices have become a little samey for me, but I’m looking forward to our meal after a week off!
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.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #129
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.
The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #129 are:
Hello Fresh: Chicken Laksa
Hello Fresh: Pan-fried chicken with lentils
Hello Fresh: Chicken and plum sauce with mash and garlicky cabbage
Hello Fresh: Teriyaki beef mince
Hello Fresh: Pork Linguine
Homemade pizza night using this bread maker pizza dough
Slow cooker sausage cassoulet (vegetarian sausages)
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.
