Happy Friday! Meal plan is something that I have come to enjoy, and running this linky in particular. I personally love to see what meals people are cooking and get some inspiration from others.I’m running this weekly meal planning linky, that allows other bloggers to share their meal plans too. I hope that this will help people to find lots of inspiration, delicious recipes and maybe read some helpful blog posts about meal planning and money saving.

It doesn’t take me long to meal plan now. Normally I sit down once a week and look at what groceries we have available. Recently I have been planning 4 weeks at a time, to try and have more variety in our meal times. I think about the different meals that we haven’t had recently, or look online for some inspiration. The posts people link up with here are a great souce of inspiration for me too now! I then place my Tesco shop online or visit Aldi, depending on what kind of mood I’m in. In the past, I switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi and saved over 30%! I don’t always want to go out in the car and browse the aisles so I find online shopping really convenient. This week we HAVE gone back to Aldi though, and the saving was really worthwhile for us, with the shop costing £51 versus around £72 for similar items at Tesco.

My favourite meal plan from last week was: Meal Planning Monday from At Home A Lot. Always great to see new people joining in – especially when they bring a dose of honesty with their meal planning!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #68

This week I have planned 7 dinners. I have planned specific dinners for specific days, based around our workload. I have a pre-op appointment in hospital this week as well as a first aid course and lots of other things going on too. I’m trying to ensure that we don’t end up buying an unhealthy or expensive takeaway.

The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #68 are:

Salt and pepper chicken

Salt & pepper chicken with egg fried rice

Slow cooker chicken curry with rice + naan + Bombay potatoes (I’m working on writing up recipes!) 

Pizza dough in the breadmaker

Pizza + chicken night

Slow cooker cottage pie (I’m going to be testing a recipe where I cook the whole thing in the S/C!)

Fish, homemade air fryer wedges & beans 

Aldi meal kit (I’m going to choose one when in store) 

Chicken fajitas 

I absolutely love my *triple slow cooker. It helps me batch cook, make a separate meal for Daisy and I can even make side dishes too!

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.

If you enjoyed this post I’d love it if you could pin it on Pinterest!

A weekly meal plan week for the whole family. Save money, cut down on takeaways, be motivated and get inspired. #mealplanning #frugal #food #slowcooker #chicken

      I love fajitas. So simple and tasty too! Yes – definitely get a nice curry going!

    You really do love your slow cooker! I will be very interested to hear if you manage to do the whole lot in there. Bit late with my meal plan this week, but better late than never.

      Oh I’m not making all of the meals in the slow cooker, just some! I partly love using it because the morning is when I am at my most motivated/productive and it allows me to get dinner on and then laze around in the afternoon!

    I hope your pre-op goes well. Sending love for that…
    I really love the idea of your salt and pepper chicken. It’s been on my menu a couple of times but kept getting bumped because I was too depressed to cope with cooking a new dish. One day we WILL have salt and pepper chicken for our dinner!

    Sounds delicious! I have just seen your recipe for the hunters chicken so I plan to give that a go soon too!

      It is really simple and most of all it is super delicious!
