The Meal Planning Linky Week #84 Meal Plan

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 dough in the breadmaker

Pizza night with homemade pizza dough in the breadmaker

Jacket potatoes in the slow cooker - A look at the finished result!

Jacket potatoes in the slow cooker with slow cooker beef chilli

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

Homemade pasta with pasta sauce and homemade garlic bread

Sausage Cassoulet - A look at the finished dish

Slow cooker sausage cassoulet 

Airfryer chips

Fish, airfryer chips & veggies  

Flatbreads, chicken with spinach and lemon served with roasted veggies (Someone on Instagram suggested this and it sounds so nice!)

The Slow cooker chicken and prawn paella with chorizo added

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!

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 week of quick, simple, tasty & frugal dinners. Save money and get inspired. #mealplanning #frugal #food #slowcooker #cheapeats #fakeaway
