Happy Friday – I hope this week has gone well for you. I’ve been recovering from a super bad cold that saw me in bed for DAYS! (Covid negative x 2!). Feel glad to be getting back on track now and today I’m off for some baby related appointments.

This month I’ve set a budget of £250 for groceries. Recently we have used Hello Fresh a lot, which has been great, but they can be a little expensive, so I’m just going to have ONE box this month. If you’ve never used them you can *Grab £46 off your first 3 boxes as a new customer.

This week I’m looking forward to being a little more hands on with my cooking, and continuing with some of my favourite 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.

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.

So glad that you finally got a negative result. Hopefully you are feeling a lot better now. With everything going on the last thing you want is been poorly. Fully agree that Hello Fresh can end up getting pricey if you have it often.

Thank you, definitely on the mend now!

Glad to hear that you are feeling better. The Beef Stroganoff sounds delicious. I am not sure I have ever had that. It will be a recipe for me to try. Thanks so much. Have a great week.

I hope your feeling better soon, touchwood have caught anything myself. As always another delicious week from you. Once we move I am going to treat us to either a hello fresh box or gusto box for a treat. Have a great week. x

Oh no, glad your cold is finally on the move. It's so stressful coming down with anything at the moment as it's so easy to think it's the dreaded covid. Thank goodness the tests came back negative. Your meal plan sounds lovely this week. Hmmm crispy chilli beef, sounds delicious ! :)


Sunday 24th of January 2021

Yes, you're so right! I'm so glad it wasn't that!
