The Meal Planning Linky Week #89 Meal Plan

Happy Friday! What a busy week we have had so far. We’ve got the keys to our new house and a LOT of work to do. This means that some of the meals I am sharing on this meal plan I’m not making myself. I’ve decided to do myself a favour and get a few nicer ready meals in so that we can still eat fairly well, and avoid the takeaway. 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, 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! We don’t have the time for browsing the aisles of Aldi at the moment. I’ve even been doing my food shop in a couple of stages too, just because I’m so pushed for time! I’m scheduling this post about 30 minutes before I have to go meet the person measuring up for new carpets in our house. I know all the rushing will be worthwhile though.

The Meal Planning Linky Week #89

This week I have planned 7 dinners. I’ve been planning dinners that take under 15 minutes to prepare and then buying some ready-made meals to go alongside those. This means I won’t be sharing as many of my own linked recipes for the next few weeks. I’m ok with that though as it is miles cheaper than using takeaways and healthier too.and

The meals for the Meal Planning Linky Week #89 are:

Fish pie & soft white rolls

Thai curry, rice & poppadoms

Lasagne & homemade garlic bread

Toad in the hole with mash & vegetables

Slow cooker paella

Chicken & bacon pasta with homemade garlic bread 

Sweet & sour chicken, egg fried rice & prawn crackers < homemade except the prawn crackers!

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.

Sweet and sour chicken is always one of our favouries - it feels like a great way of getting some veg into the kids as well!

I'm amazed you aren't just going to takeaways and ready meals this week. I hope you are getting sorted. Have you actually moved in yet? Such an exciting time.

Oh we are having some ready meals (Think I mentioned in my post) but trying to avoid the takeaways atm! No, we move in on the 3rd x
