The Meal Planning Linky Week #33 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 stay away from the takeaway, helps us to eat tasty, wholesome, healthy meals and is now an important part of my organisational week. Today I’m sharing the Meal Planning Linky Week #33. 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. Please note that from week 36 I will be running the linky by myself. I’ll have more details on this in two weeks time. 

The Meal Planning Linky

Meal planning is easy once you form a habit. I spend about 10 minutes a week, on a Sunday, working on a meal plan, and writing my shopping list. We are saving a lot of money, especially as I have switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #33

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 #33 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

Airfryer chips

Fakeaway kebabs + airfryer chips

Toad in the hole with veg & onion gravy

Frozen Pizza night – Nice and easy!

You’ll probably notice that some of my meals are the same as last week, this is because we ended up mixing it up. I got some bargain yellow stickered items and used my slow cooker a little more than expected.

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.

    Gotta love a roast chook, and pie with the leftovers is such a delicious idea. Love the kebab fakeaway and pizzas too, easy and so very tasty.

    I love toad in the hole and I have recently got the recipe right for making it with gluten free batter too. I do miss onion gravy though! Another great week of meals for you! Enjoy!

    • katykicker August 21, 2018 / 1:13 pm

      Ooh please share it with me if you have time! You can make that onion gravy with gluten-free flour and it’s just as delicious x
