The Meal Planning Linky Week #35 Meal Plan

I absolutely love meal planning. It is a fantastic way to save money, stay organised and avoid the last-minute takeaway. I’m running a weekly meal planning linky, that allows other bloggers to share their meal plans too. I hope that this will help people to find lots of inspiration, delicious recipes and maybe read some helpful blog posts about meal planning and money saving.

Katykickers weekly meal planning linky

For me it doesn’t take long to meal plan. I sit down once a week, on a Sunday night, and look at what groceries we have available. Then I think about different meals that we haven’t had recently, or look online for some inspiration. Then once a week we visit Aldi, and sometimes Tesco or Sainsburys if Daisy needs some free-from specialist food. I switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi and saved over 30%!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #35

This week I have planned 6 dinners. This leaves one day for using up leftovers or possibly eating out. We like to be a little loose with our meal planning, to try and avoid the possibility of food wastage. Also, we don’t eat our dinners on set days, as I just decide each evening which meal we will be eating the following day.

Take a look at this weeks shop:

My meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #35 are:

A week of slow cooker dinners slow cooker roast chicken

Slow cooker whole chicken with all the trimmings including sage and onion stuffing, onion gravy and airfryer roast potatoes.

How to cook rice in the slow cooker

Jerk chicken with slow cooker rice (Joleisa’s jerk chicken marinade)

Beef hotpot

Beef hotpot with veggies

Slow cooker beef keema

Quorn slow cooker keema curry with rice

Slow cooker chicken nachos

Slow cooker Chicken nachos (Quorn for Daisy)

Bacon mac and cheese

Bacon mac & cheese pasta bake

I absolutely love my *triple slow cooker. It helps me batch cook, make a seperate meal for Daisy and I can even make side dishes too!

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.

If you enjoyed this post I’d love it if you could pin it on Pinterest!

I love a whole chicken cooked in the slow cooker, so easy and the stock is all there too. Love the Quorn Keema, such a versatile and cheap ingredient instead of regular mince. Your meal plans are always so varied and delicious. Thanks so much for hosting the linky.

I have never cooked a chicken in the slow cooker! Definitely going to do that next week. Also I really need to start taking more pictures of my food. Mostly because this would improve my presentation rather than my usual style of slinging it on the plate and yelling "DINNER!" Thanks for the linky!
