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 #57.

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 #57

I’m planning 7 meals this week. We have been trying to avoid the takeaway so I’ve gradually moved from scheduling 5 meals to 6, and now to 7!

This weeks favourite meal plan: Slimming World | Last Weeks Meal Plan

My meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #57 are:

Spaghetti bolognese  

Slow cooker chicken curry - a look at the curry once it is ready!

Chicken curry, naan, pilau rice & poppadoms 

Ramen with hoisin pork tenderloin

Fresh pasta sauce recipe

Rigatoni pasta with garlic flatbread (homemade pasta sauce)

Fish, chips & mushy peas/beans 

Toad in the hole with veggies & my ultimate onion gravy

Rubber roast chicken

Slow cooker whole chicken with airfryer roast potatoes, sage & onion stuffing and lots more!

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!

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.

    That all sounds delicious Katy. I am trying to use stuff up from the freezer, so it will be an easy week with little cooking. Suits me!

    The chicken curry sound amazing I love trying to make my own and avoid jars and such like

      In Home Bargains they sell ‘Mayflower curry’ and it lasts for ages. It’s a powder in a pot and under £1 from what I can remember!

    That looks so good, and if there are leftovers that would be great on a baked potato.
    My mouth is watering. 🙂
