Merry Christmas! Don’t worry, I’m not actually sitting here posting this on Christmas Day, I’ve scheduled it a few days in advance ready for a few days relaxing with Thomas and Daisy!

Recently we have used Hello Fresh a lot, which has been great, and if you’ve never used them you can (*Grab £46 off your first 3 boxes)

This week I’m looking forward to being a little more hands on with my cooking, and practicing some of my recipes again!

Meal planning helps us to have low food waste which is really important to me. It also helps us to save money and avoiding overspending on groceries. It feels more important than ever at the moment as we’re in tier 4 here in Essex and really want to minimise our supermarket trips as much as we physically can.

I’ve been meal planning for several years now pretty much weekly. 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.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #156

Christmas Dinner! We’re having slow cooker roast beef, slow cooker gammon, and a turkey crown too. I’m cooking everything in advance, and freezing in modest amounts, this way we don’t waste any of the meat, don’t overeat on the day and have lots of leftovers for January meals too!

We’re also going to enjoy all the traditional trimmings like air fryer roast potatoes, sage and onion stuffing, air fryer parsnips, yorkshire puddings, lots and lots of veggies, and a jazzed up version of my onion gravy for Daisy too!

Leftover nights x 2 – we will have lots of goodies in our fridge and don’t like food waste so we’ll be eating out of the fridge too

Party food night

Sausage and mash or something equally simple

Frozen pizza night for convenience

Chinese night – I think we’ve had one Chinese takeaway since March, so I’ll be really looking forward to this and hoping my hyperemesis doesn’t flare up this day! Sesame prawn toast is calling my name!

If you’re looking for meal planning inspiration then be sure to read my meal planning tips. Also, check out my meal planning with mince post. I’ve also got a post about making a roast chicken go further.
