The Meal Planning Linky Week #34 Meal Plan

This post may contain affiliate links.

I love to meal plan. It is such a good way to feel organised, eat well and save money too. 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 one weeks time. 

The Meal Planning Linky

Meal planning is easy once you complete it for a few weeks. It really does become a habit. I spend 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 #34

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. Some of this weeks meals are the same as last week because we ate out a few times. 

My meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #34 are:

Slow cooker gammon joint with balsamic & orange glaze

Roast gammon, roast potatoes, stuffing, onion gravy

Airfryer chips

Fakeaway kebabs + airfryer chips

Toad in the hole with veg & onion gravy

Frozen Pizza night – Nice and easy!

Slow cooker spaghetti bolognese

Lasagne

Fancy looking at what I bought at shopping this week?

Some of the meals are the same as last week, because we ate out. I had lots of items in the freezer and I don’t want to waste food.

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.

    My meals are all about saving money on my food bill. I am being strict in the run up to Christmas!

    I do like the money-saving aspect! And apart from weight control, that’s what we focused on this week too. Thank goodness for whoever designed the refrigerator and freezer so we can store leftover foods or foods we aren’t yet ready for.

    Love roast gammon, and toad in the hole too. We’re having slow cooker bolognese this week. It’s a broke until payday week for us so we’re using up what we have and being thrifty but still delicious.
