Happy Friday! I hope this week has been a good one for you. Thomas is working night shifts this weekend so I’ve been my future friend and got ahead with this. Meal planning helps us to stay organised and save money too. Every week I share with you my meal plan and provide an area for other bloggers to link up (see below). I love seeing what everyone is linking up meal plan wise, cooking each week and also getting inspiration for my own meal plan. 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.
I sit down once per week & see what groceries we have leftover 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%! Lately, I have been using Sainsburys to shop online. I’ve had a few issues with my deliveries BUT they have been giving me fantastic discounts, for example, £12 off a £50 shop, and I had a £10 voucher I could use too. This allowed me to save £22 on my (slightly overpriced) shopping.

My favourite meal plan from last week was:
The Meal Planning Linky Week #84
This week I have planned 7 dinners. Cutting down on the takeaways is something we have been working on lately, and being organised really helps us. I’ve been planning dinners that take just 15 minutes to prepare, and others that we can cook in the slow cooker.
The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #84 are:
Pizza night with homemade pizza dough in the breadmaker
no yeast flatbreads, chicken with spinach and lemon served with roasted veggies (Someone on Instagram suggested this and it sounds so nice!)
Slow cooker chicken & prawn paella with crusty bread
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!
