Morning, Happy Friday! Going to be a bit of a strange weekend for a lot of us I’m sure with people starting to visit family/go outside more etc. I’m looking forward to a nice lazy day on Sunday, at home, and perhaps a nice family walk too!
Last week I mentioned that I was going back to meal planning more myself, however, I then decided last minute to get a Mindful Chef box, so the meals we were going to eat last week we’re now going to have this week! So sorry if this post is a little bit repetitive!
I managed to get a click & collect Tesco shop for next week, after visiting the store Monday, and I’m super grateful for that! I have avoided taking delivery slots, as I know there were people much more in need, but apparently slots are more freely available now, so in a few more weeks I may go back to getting our usual weekly delivery.
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.

My favourite meal plan from last week:
The Meal Planning Linky Week #131
For the week ahead I’ve loosely planned breakfasts and lunches, to ensure that we have enough items in, and then we are going to be using some lovely Simply Cook kits. *Grab yourself a box to try for just £1!
The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #131 are:
Simply Cook: Chicken & mushroom risotto
Simply Cook: Lamb kofte with no yeast flatbreads this has similar flavours to my slow cooker keema curry
Simply Cook: Mexican beef quesadillas
Simply Cook: Sausage & fennel pasta
Simply Cook: Mexican pork one-pot with rice
Homemade pizza night
Takeaway night (Something Daisy can enjoy with us if we can find it as she rarely gets to enjoy a takeaway with us!)
That’s it! A nice straight forward week for us. I’m looking forward to the Simply Cook kits, as they’re nice and straight forward, and hoping that Thomas will do the dinner a couple of nights, for a treat for me!
