Happy Friday! I hope your week has been a good one so far. This week has gone well for me. I’ve tried to branch out & get some new ideas for meals this week. I really enjoy meal planning but find that we sometimes get stuck in rut. This meal planning linky has been fantastic for my family as we have a lot more meal ideas now an almost nothing feels boring. 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.

Katykickers weekly meal planning linky

It doesn’t take me long to meal plan. 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, had a refurbishment recently and I am enjoying shopping there even more now.

My favourite meal plan from last week: 24th June meal plan from Pushing The Moon. I love the idea of a midweek roast and a nice BBQ on the weekend!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #78

This week I have planned 6 dinners. We have a family wedding next weekend. Obviously we don’t need to plan a meal for this day as we will be enjoying being catered for I’m really looking forward to a nice family weekend and having lots to celebrate together.

The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #78 are:

Slow cooker cottage pie filling - the ingredients

Slow cooker cottage pie (I’m going to be making it with the mash on top again to change my recipe/photos!)

Slow cooker lemon chicken (perfecting this recipe!) with rice made in the slow cooker

Slow cooker beef stroganoff (I’ll be writing this up for Allergy Free Day as I hope it’ll be gluten & dairy free!)

Airfryer chips

Daisy friendly hot dogs, buns, airfryer chips or onion rings

A week of slow cooker dinners slow cooker roast chicken

Slow cooker roast chicken with all the trimmings including gravy, airfryer roast potatoes, sage & onion stuffing and airfryer parsnips.

Homemade onion gravy recipe

Toad in the hole with onion gravy (and an individual gluten and dairy free toad in the hole for Daisy!)

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 as she is just constantly hungry at the moment!

I absolutely love my *triple slow cooker. It helps me to batch cook, make separate meals for Daisy as required and I can even make side dishes for us 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 delicious & cheap meal plan week for the whole family. #mealplanning #frugal #food #slowcooker #chicken #slowcookerdinners

      Thanks so much. I’ve got in a bit of a funk lately with the same old meals so I’m trying to mix it up more!

    ooooo I have lemon chicken on our meal plan – never tried it before

    • katykicker July 2, 2019 / 5:31 pm

      I’m really looking forward to it.

    All of your meals sound so good.
    I need to try making lemon chicken. I think my family would love it.
    I am planning more for lunchtimes too as we’re so busy with moving house and have both the kids home.

      I hope you’re settling in well x

    Lovely meal plan. I really need to get into slow cooker meals as I have one but hardly used it.

    • katykicker July 2, 2019 / 5:32 pm

      It’s a great time of year for it too as you don’t need to slave over the hob.

    Ooo never tried slow cooker cottage pie but i might have to give it a go!
    we often do air fryer chips thy are fab!

    • katykicker July 2, 2019 / 5:33 pm

      I’m going to be re-making it and doing the entire thing, rather than just the filling, in the slow cooker. I’m looking forward to it already!

      I love air fryer chips. So much healthier! We are having them tonight I think!

    You have inspired me to use our slow cooker more at the moment I have no energy to cook. I feel bad for making my partner cook all the time.

    I totally forgot to comment on this last week – so sorry! Lemon Chicken is a firm fave for us, but I haven’t tried it in the slow cooker yet!

    • katykicker July 9, 2019 / 8:21 pm

      Oh that’s ok, no bother at all! I actually didn’t end up trying it!
