Happy Friday! I hope your week has been a good one so far. Meal planning is something that I have come to enjoy and running this linky in particular. I 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 meals that we haven’t had for a while, or look online for a bit of meal planning inspiration. The posts people link up with here are sourceat 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. We haven’t had a car for a couple of weeks so I’m looking forward to getting back to Aldi early next week!

My favourite meal plan from last week was: A week of Slimming World Meals

The Meal Planning Linky Week #71

This week I have planned 7 dinners. I have planned specific dinners for specific days, based around our workload. I have an operation on Tuesday. I’m trying to make sure that we eat nice healthy dinners while I am recovering, instead of resorting to a takeaway from tiredness.

The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #71 are:

Beef Hotpot

Bacon mac & cheese pasta bake and homemade garlic bread  

Slow cooker beef keema curry with rice made in the slow cooker

Calzones + airfryer chips 

Beef chilli with slow cooker jacket potatoes

Slow cooker sausage cassoulet 

Slow cooker vegetarian lasagne 

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 how to stretch a whole chicken.
