Happy Friday! I hope your week has been a good one so far. This week has gone well for me. I’ve been productive, home is clean, tidy & organised and I’ve made a nice bit of money from focus groups, paid surveys and the like too. 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. 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 a source of inspiration for me too now! A couple of years back I switched from shopping at Tesco to shopping at Aldi and saved over 30%! Then I fell off the wagon and started doing the grocery shop online, for convenience. Now I’m back to browsing the aisles of Aldi and really enjoying it. Our local store, Aldi Harlow, just had a refurbishment and I’ve really been enjoying it.

My favourite meal plan from last week: The weekly meal plan from Spencers Arc – I love that it contains 3 meals a day!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #77

This week I have planned 7 dinners. I’ve been planning specific dinners for specific days, to fit in with family plans. We don’t have any big plans this week so I’m looking forward to lots of home cooked meals, time to clean & organise ready for moving and some nice time with my family.

The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #77 are:

Slow cooker BBQ ribs (This is a new recipe that I am working on)

15 minute spaghetti bolognese

Fish & chips with veggies

Pizza night using homemade pizza dough

Slow cooker chicken curry, rice in the slow cooker & naan

Sweet & sour chicken peking style (another recipe I’m perfecting!), egg fried rice & prawn crackers 

Meal kit from Aldi (Been wanting to try one of these for ages!) 

I’ve had more of a plan for lunches and breakfasts too this week. I am going to bake some snacks, including gluten free jam drops and gluten free puff pastry doughnuts. I’m also going to be using my 40 ideas for your Yumbox post to make sure Daisy is having varied lunches.

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 very simple meal plan week for the whole family that is cheap too. #mealplanning #frugal #food #slowcooker #chicken

    I must say I’m reallyinterested in the gluten free recipes. I’ve only ever tried to make glutenfree bread and I’ll hold my hand up and say it was an embarrassing disaster. So I am looking forward to giving one of these recipes a go soon. Will report back. Thanks for sharing your fab meal ideas.

      Yeah gluten free bread is meant to be really hard. I’ve only tried it one time and it wasn’t great!

    • katykicker July 2, 2019 / 5:28 pm

      Oh I didn’t know Tesco had meal boxes!

    Good luck with organising to move. We’re doing the same. We’re off on Thursday. Eek!
    All of your meals sound so good. When we’re settled in the new house I am planning on using my slow cooker a lot more. x

    • katykicker July 2, 2019 / 5:29 pm

      Thanks so much! So glad to see your move went well x

      You’re so welcome! Looking forward to it x

    In the end we just chose some pizza I think, oops!

  7. katykicker July 2, 2019 / 5:30 pm

    They have some great ones in store. They’re pretty basic, in terms of what you get choice wise, but they are not much more money than doing it yourself which is always good!

    Thanks so much Catherine – the post goes live on Sunday so I hope you enjoy them!
