The Meal Planning Linky Week #32 Meal Plan

This post may contain affiliate links.

Meal planning is something that I have really come to love in recent months. Meal planning helps us avoid buying takeaways, helps us to eat healthier meals and has become an important part of my organisational week. Being able to look at a meal plan, and choose what we are going to eat, takes some of the stress away from our day. Today I’m sharing the Meal Planning Linky Week #32. This linky is hosted by myself, Katykicker, and Naomi from The Organised Life Project. We both LOVE meal planning and want to invite you to join us in sharing your meal plan and keeping motivated.

The Meal Planning Linky

Meal planning is surprisingly easy once you get into it. I spend about 10-15 minutes a week working on a meal plan, and writing a shopping list. The money that this saves us is well worth the time I invest.

We are saving a lot of money, especially as I have switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi.

The Meal Planning Linky is a weekly linky. Naomi and I will be sharing our week’s meal plan and would love you to link yours up too. By sharing meal plans we can all keep ourselves accountable and inspire one another with new ideas and recipes.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #32

I will be planning 5 meals each week. This leaves 2 days per week for using up leftovers, dining out or visiting family for dinner. We don’t have set days for our meals, as I prefer to decide in the morning which of the meals we want and what fits in with our plans.

My meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #32 are:

Airfryer roast potatoes

Roast chicken, roast potatoes, stuffing, onion gravy

chicken, spinach, filo pie - A look at the finished pie

Chicken, spinach & filo pie

Beef hotpot

Beef hotpot

Bolognese pasta bake

Bolognese pasta bake 

Chicken fajita triangles

Chicken fajita triangles with sweet potato fries

Chocolate ripple cheesecake

Snacks: Chocolate ripple cheesecake

My triple slow cooker is really helpful when I want to make us a slow cooker dinner. I’m able to make us the main dish, a side dish and cook a separate meal for Daisy too. Most of this week’s dinners are Daisy friendly so I won’t have to do that much extra cooking for her. Yay!

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

    Filo pastry is something I rarely use but really should. I think it is much lower in fat? Might build that into next week’s plan….

      I’m not actually sure about the fat, however, I know that I use a LOT less than normal shortcrust – so that must help? x
