The Meal Planning Linky Week #80 Meal Plan

Happy Friday! I hope your week has gone well. Ours has. Nothing particular, just lots of work, lots of chores, time together and some nice meals too! We had a cheeky takeaway too, which is always nice. I love seeing what everyone is linking up and getting inspiration for my own meal plan. 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. Don’t forget to check out my post to help you avoid overspending on your groceries.

Katykickers weekly meal planning linky

It doesn’t take me long to meal plan. I sit down once a week, usually on a Thursday, and look at what groceries we have available from the previous week. Then I think about the different meals that we haven’t had recently, or look online for some inspiration. I then place my Tesco shop online. 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 to Aldi though, and the saving was really worthwhile for us. I saved around £21 versus shopping at Tesco.

My favourite meal plan from last week was: Our Meal Plan by Cups of Charlotte

The Meal Planning Linky Week #80

This week I have planned 7 dinners. Thomas has a week off and we are planning on using the slow cooker lots. We’re going to try and avoid too many convenience foods.

The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #80 are:

Sausage Cassoulet - A look at the finished dish

Monday: Slow cooker sausage cassoulet

Slow cooker cottage pie filling - a look at the cooked filling

Tuesday: Slow cooker cottage pie

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

Wednesday: Slow cooker chicken curry, rice in the slow cooker & naan bread

Thursday: Toad in the hole with an Individual toad in the hole [DF, GF, SF] with onion gravy

Slow cooker hunters chicken with chips - A look at the finished dish

Friday: Slow cooker hunters chicken

Pizza dough in the breadmaker

Saturday: Pizza dough in the breadmaker & drinks

Chicken fajita triangles - the roasted filling

Sunday: Slow cooker chicken fajitas (I may finally write this up one of these days!)

I absolutely love my *triple slow cooker. It helps me to 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!

Lots of delicious & cheap slow cooker meals. Our meal plan for the week suitable for the whole family. #mealplanning #frugal #food #slowcooker #chicken #slowcookerdinners

    Toad in the hole is Jenson’s fave! Must add that to a meal plan soon! Have a great week my love!

    I love that you give yourself the option of doing your shopping after seeing what you already have in and also deciding when to do Tesco and when to go with Aldi.
    It is what is convenient for you and your family.

      Yeah! We’ve used Sainsburys a few times too lately.

    • katykicker July 14, 2019 / 8:15 am

      Absolutely – I love mine!

    The chicken fajitas sound good! Mr S keeps badgering me for toad in the hole too, but not whilst I am on Slimming World….he will just have to have the toad in the form of low fat sausages 🙂

    • katykicker July 14, 2019 / 8:16 am

      Haha nothing wrong with that! We mostly use Vegetarian sausages in ours too as normal sausages are so high in fat aren’t they!

    Your triple slow cooker sounds ideal for you, I wish I could use ours more. Toad in the hole is a huge huge favourite here.

      We love a nice toad in the hole with veg and gravy! x

    We had your sausage cassoulet last week and it was so good and I made a sausage casserole from a packet mix yesterday and it was good but not as good as your recipe!
    I love the sound of your chicken fajitas. x

    • katykicker July 16, 2019 / 12:25 pm

      Oh Kim! Your comment has really made my day. Thanks so much! x

  6. Charlotte Zealey July 18, 2019 / 8:38 am

    Fajtias is not something which I would have thought about making in the slow cooker, this could be a game changer.

    • katykicker July 19, 2019 / 1:48 pm

      They’re SO good. Extra soft and delicious!

  7. Jaymee July 22, 2019 / 8:19 pm

    absolutely love toad in the hole! Although recently my yorkies have become a little stodgy! There are some fab meals, can’t wait to get some inspo!
