Happy Friday! I hope your week has been a good one so far. I’m melting. If you’re in the UK I’m sure you’ve been feeling the same so I won’t go on about it! Here is my meal plan for next week. 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.

It doesn’t take me long to meal plan. Normally I sit down once a week and look at what groceries we have available. In this heat, I’ve been finding it a little tricky to think up meals but I’ve tried my best. I thought 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: Our weekly meal plan from The Mum Diaries.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #82

I have planned 7 meals this week. I always hope this will keep us from the takeaway but in this heat, we’ve been failing. Still, we have good intentions!

The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #82 are:

A look at the slow cooker cottage pie

Slow cooker cottage pie (made with turkey mince)

Easy homemade garlic bread - look at the bread once it has been dressed! Delicious

Spaghetti carbonara with homemade garlic bread

Homemade onion gravy recipe

Toad in the hole with lots of veggies and onion gravy and an individual toad in the hole for Daisy

Fish, couscous & roasted veggies

Slow cooker beef chilli - A sneak peek at the end result

Slow cooker beef chilli with rice made in the slow cooker & tortilla chips from homemade tortillas

Pizza dough in the breadmaker

Pizza night – I often use homemade pizza dough in the breadmaker but I’m buying frozen ones!

Airfryer chips

Gammon, egg & airfryer chips 

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’m not sure if it is a growth spurt or just normal…!

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!

    Loving your meal plan as usual!
    Air fryer chips! I’m staying with a friend in Connecticut and last week I had my first taste of air fryer chips! Her son made it for me and I am sold on the idea!
    Will see if Leisa is up for us to get one!
    Such a clever gadget.
    Thanks for sharing and allowing us to share too.

      I love cooking food in the air fryer – it’s so much healthier than using oil x

    Ooh, lovely meal plan, Katy! I’m definitely going to check out your puff pastry doughnut recipe!

    It is so hard to cook when it’s too hot. We cheated one day last week and got a takeaway. hehehe
    We haven’t had Gammon, egg & chips for ages. I must add it to our meal plan soon.

      Can’t beat a nice takeaway sometimes can you! x

    How funny, our meal plans are so similar this week! Have a great week 🙂
