Happy Friday! I hope that this week has been a wonderful one for you. We’ve finally had news that there is a house for us! I’m really looking forward to the next weeks ahead, as we find out when we can move and get everything moving! This week I want to try and ensure that we’re having zero food waste and avoiding expensive takeaways too. We’ll need every penny we can save for moving costs as we will need paint, new carpets and lots more! Meal planning helps us to stay organised and saves us money too. Every week I share with you my meal plan for the coming week and provide a post 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%! I’ve been enjoying shopping at Tesco again because I love the convenience of just picking things online and then collecting during a slot that suits us. Also, I’m really pleased that Tesco recently moved to not having plastic bags too!

The Meal Planning Linky Week #87

This week I have planned 7 dinners. I’ve been planning dinners that take under 15 minutes to prepare, and others that we can cook in the slow cooker. This is to keep us on track on our busier days. It’s been working well and stopping those last minute unplanned takeaways.

The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #87 are:

Air fryer potato wedges

Fish, air fryer wedges & veggies

Sweet & sour chicken, salt & pepper chips, egg fried rice

Pizza dough in the breadmaker

Pizza night (homemade pizza dough

Slow cooker spaghetti bolognese

Sausage Cassoulet - A look at the finished dish

Slow cooker sausage cassoulet 

Chicken kebabs

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

Slow cooker chilli (made with turkey) with rice in the slow cooker & homemade tortilla chips

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!

Delicious dinners for the whole family. #homemade #recipes #easydinners #frugalfood #slowcooker #mealplanning

    Woohoo! I’m so pleased for you! There is nothing so exciting as having your own place and hopefully you will have more space as Daisy grows. Can’t wait to see your journey.

    I am so pleased you have got a house finally! When we moved I ran the cupboards and freezer down as much as I could to save moving food stuff. I saved and got a big shop once we’d moved in.
    All of your meals sound so good. x

    I am so glad that you are moving and you get a house which you deserve. Another great meal plan and I must admit we love the slow cooker chilli in this house. Thank you for sharing that recipe.
