The Meal Planning Linky Week #48 Meal Plan

This post may contain affiliate links.

I’m a BIG fan of meal planning! Being able to save money, and avoid takeaways is great for our waistline and our budget too. For us, the main area where we go wrong with eating healthy is not planning dinners and not meal planning before we go shopping. Since we have become more motivated and begun meal planning, we feel more organised at home and we are eating healthier too. As well as sharing my own meal plan this week I’m inviting other bloggers to take part and share their meal plans. Hopefully, this will give our readers lots of meal planning inspiration! The Meal Planning Linky Week #48 Meal Plan is now live!

Meal planning allows me to remove some of the day to day stress from my life. My husband works shifts so he goes out to work at 5 pm sometimes. This means we need an early dinner and it falls right in the middle of Daisy’s bedtime routine.

By posting my meal plan weekly I want to make healthier choices, cut out takeaways, cook from scratch and save lots of money. I’ve also switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi and I’ve been saving a LOT of money so far.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #48

I’ll be planning 6 meals this week. This leaves 1 day a 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: Super healthy meal plan from Shoestring Cottage

My meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #48 are:

Sausage & mash with veg & my ultimate onion gravy

Chicken fajita triangles

Chicken fajita triangles

Fish, chips & beans 

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

Chicken filo pie with veggies

Thai chicken curry & pilau rice with naan 

Pizzas with garlic bread 

As you can see it is a really easy week this week! I’m not going to be putting much effort into meals, as we’ve got other things on, but we’ll still avoid the takeaway hopefully!

    Loving the look and sound of the chicken filo pies and vegetables. Filo pastry is so nice to work with and has so many uses too. Thanks for your inspiration this week.

      It’s so yummy and I love that you don’t need lots either!

      Thank you!

    I think it’s sensible to keep the plan loose if you are out and about. I often swap mine around depending on how we feel!

    • katykicker December 2, 2018 / 9:28 pm

      Definitely! It’s a great way to still save some money too and I’m focusing on using up leftovers atm.

    • katykicker December 2, 2018 / 9:28 pm

      They are definitely unhealthy but also delicious!

    Sausage & mash is such a perfect meal for this time of year. My girls would eat it every evening given the chance. Good luck with avoiding the takeaway. I am trying to do the same. I need to save for Christmas. Eek x

      Thanks. I think we’ve had one in the last month which is really, really good for us!
