Meal planning is something that I have really come to love in recent months. Meal planning helps us avoid buying takeaways, helps us to eat healthier meals and has become an important part of my organisational week. Being able to look at a meal plan, and choose what we are going to eat, takes some of the stress away from our day. Today I’m sharing the Meal Planning Linky Week #54.

Day to day life can feel a little stressful at times. Like a lot of parents, I’m juggling multiple activities on a daily basis, and I’m also fitting in working from home too. Meal planning saves me time and effort and best of all it saves us money in the process!

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 is a weekly linky. Naomi and I will be sharing our week’s meal plan and would love you to link yours up too. By sharing meal plans we can all keep ourselves accountable and inspire one another with new ideas and recipes.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #54

I’m planning 6 meals per 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: Our family meal plan for week of 07/01/09

My meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #54 are:

Rubber roast chicken

Slow cooker whole chicken with airfryer roast potatoes, sage & onion stuffing and onion gravy

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

Chicken & spinach filo pie (using roast chicken leftovers)

A week of slow cooker dinners Slow-cooker-chicken-curry

Slow cooker Chicken curry & rice

Slow cooker beef casserole - A look at the dinner once the flour has been added

Beef casserole & dumplings

Bolognese pasta bake

Bolognese pasta bake

Airfryer chips

Steak and airfryer chips (chicken for me!)

My *triple slow cooker is really helpful when I want to make us a slow cooker dinner. I’m able to make us a 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. This is always a great week for me!
