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 #47.

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.

My favourite meal plan from last week: Meal Plan Friday by Mud Cakes & Wine

The Meal Planning Linky Week #47

I’ll be planning 6 meals this week. This leaves 1 day per week for eating leftovers, dining out or visiting friends and 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 day’s plans.

This weeks favourite meal plan:

My meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #47 are:

Most of this week’s dinners don’t have recipes, as they are either new recipes or jarred sauces that are super simple! I’m keeping it easy this week, as I’ve got lots of work to do and Daisy is out a few days too so I’ve got lots of time to work.

Coq Au Vin with roasting veggies (peppers, onions + tomatoes) + potatoes

Thai chicken curry & pilau rice

I love using my *triple slow cooker and I have been testing out making side dishes in it recently too. Most of this week’s dinners are Daisy friendly so I won’t have to do that much extra cooking for her. Apart from the nights when we have chicken. 

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.

I’ve got a TON of lovely recipes on this blog so why not check out my mealtime inspiration post.

    I’m going for nice warming dishes too this week, and plan a casserole mid week. Mr S can have chicken in his, but mine will be veggie!

      You can’t beat a nice casserole when it is cold outside!

    • katykicker November 27, 2018 / 10:27 am

      You can’t beat a nice steaming jacket potato at this time of year!
