Good morning! That’s it… my little girl has finished Nursery FOREVER! Wow! The 3 years she has been attending seem to have passed by in a flash, so I’m sure this next month that we have at home together will do the same! Here is my meal plan for this week!

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.

I’m keeping it nice and simple again this week. We’ve got a *Gousto box for 4 dinners, I’ve planned 2 more dinners and I’ve left one night free as we’ve got some ‘freezer tapas’ to use up which will be great for an easy night!

I’ve been meal planning for well over 2 years now pretty much every single week. It is a great way for us to save money and I really enjoy having a nice variety of meals to choose from each week.

Each week other lovely bloggers link up their meal plans, to try and share recipes around with one another, inspire each other and hopefully drive a little bit of extra traffic too! I really enjoy running this linky and seeing what meals everyone is cooking that week.

That all sounds lovely. We eat loads of chicken here too as it's the kids' favourite meat - no complaints, even if I get fed up with it sometimes ! I've just been to investigate chilaquiles - sounds very tasty :)

Ahh Daisy is ALLERGIC to chicken. So sad! Hoping she'll outgrow it soon though! Those chilaquiles were UNREAL! So So good, definitely a winner!
