I’m so amazed at how fast this year has gone. Everyone says that don’t they..! Anyway, here we are, super close to Christmas now and I’m still on the meal planning bandwagon. I will probably have 1-2 weeks off over Christmas but I will still create this linky so you can get lots of fab ideas for party food, roast dinner accompaniments and more during the festive period.

Meal planning allows me to alleviate some of the stress from my life. Knowing that we have food in for various dinners, and a range of different dinners, helps me on a day where I am having a flare-up. I love being able to look in the morning, or even the night before and decide what we are going to have for dinner. If we get busy unexpectedly then we often have a slow cooker meal on the go. Also, if you’re looking for some more inspiration be sure to check out my mealtime inspiration post with LOTS of great recipes on!

By holding myself accountable, with a meal plan, I am making healthier choices for us. We are cutting out on the takeaways, preparing food from scratch and saving ourselves money too. I have switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi and this has helped our grocery budget too.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #50

I’ll be planning 6 meals this week. This leaves 1 day per week for a takeaway that we will be enjoying tomorrow night. 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. Most of these meals are the same as last week as we ended up eating out once, eating leftovers a couple of times and we mixed it up slightly. 

This week’s favourite meal plan: This weeks budget meal plan from Shoestring Cottage

My meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #50 are: 

Pizza dough in the breadmaker

Pizza night

Gammon, chips & egg

Homemade onion gravy recipe

Sausages & mash with my ultimate onion gravy 

15 minute spaghetti bolognese 

Chicken chow mein with egg fried rice 

Easy slow cooker chicken casserole recipe

Easy slow cooker chicken casserole 

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.
