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.

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:
Spaghetti carbonara with homemade garlic bread
Pizza night – I often use homemade pizza dough in the breadmaker but I’m buying frozen ones!
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!
