My meal planning is a bit different during the summer holidays... #mealplanningmonday

Last weeks meal plan went OK....We missed going to McDonalds....On Friday I did the last ever school run, picking Ellie up from Primary school and it rained and we got soaked....The rain was lovely but we got home and put our pj's on. When teatime came around no one wanted to get dressed and go out....The sooner McDonalds delivers to us the better. We had pizza instead which meant we couldn't really have pizza on Saturday so we had hot dogs in buns.

My meal planning is a bit different during the summer holidays......I learned many years ago planning the meals is OK but planning on what day we are going to eat them doesn't work....

This week on the menu we have:

Slow Cooked Pulled Pork with Salad - We saw it on Eat Well for Less on BBC1 last week. Both of the girls said they want it so we will be having it. We are going to try the apricot and green bean salad too but I don't think they will actually eat the green beans...

Beans on toast - Last week the kids had quiche and salad and I didn't fancy it so I had beans on toast and they wanted it adding to the meal plan this week.

Tuna, sweetcorn and pasta - Ellie is obsessed with this at the moment since she had it when she visited the secondary school. 


Sandwiches, cakes, crisps and picky things.

Corndogs and Nacho Cheese Fries - Last time we had this meal it was a huge hit with the girls. It's a nice easy meal for me to make too. hehehe

Roast chicken dinner - We will most likely have this on Sunday.

I am joining in with the linky hosted by  The Organised Life Project and Katykicker. They love to meal plan too!


  1. Sounds like some fab meals for this week X #mmbc

  2. Ah an emotional time - except the rain probably eased the pain :-) I think you are right about the meals for a summer holiday as you never quite know what you are doing xx

  3. You know the weather's gone crazy when I'm jealous hearing about your rain ! I've always fancied trying corn dogs and never knew you could buy them frozen - and I love the sound of pulled pork with salad :)
