Our weekly meal plan! 22nd - 28th April. #MealPlanningMonday

Last weeks meal plan did not to go plan! We ate two of the meals. The Chinese chicken thighs with noodles and the pizza.

It turns out we didn't have leftover bolognese in the freezer to go over jacket potatoes but I did empty the freezer a little and we had corn dogs, onion rings, chicken nuggets and corn on the cobs. On Wednesday we were not feeling great and we had chip butties for lunch and no one felt like much for tea so we had cereal. Thursday we went out for the afternoon and had McDonalds for tea. On the way home we called in Lidl and I saw some Bramley Apple sausages which I love which we had on Saturday and on Sunday we had a big fry up.

So those who are amazed that I meal plan every week, here's the proof that it doesn't work out every week! The upside to the meal plan going wrong is that this week I didn't have to spend much on the grocery shop. It came to just under £70 which included 2 bottles of wine and the Iceland meat deal where you get 4 meat joints for £10. I got 2 chicken, pork and a gammon which I will be using this week.

This week on the menu we have:

Monday - A roast dinner. Chicken, pork and a whole heap of veg.
Tuesday - Bubble and Squeak with poached eggs.
Wednesday - Gammon and salad.
 Thursday - Baked beans on toast.
Friday - Pizza.
Saturday - Leftover pork roast ragu with rice.
Sunday - Toad in the hole, mash & veg.

What are you eating this week?


  1. I feel this so much. Sometimes life just gets in the way of a good meal plan! It's nice to know I'm not alone...
    Glad that you changed it up because of doing something fun on Thursday 😊
    I love a roast dinner and the leftovers it gives us. Himself fried up some leftover roasties yesterday for his lunch, I had the marmite sandwich I'd made to take to work. I was extremely jealous.

  2. Ooh I love toad on the hole! A firm favourite here. I need to get back to planning, it's costing me more money winging it x

  3. Sometimes that's just how life goes! This weeks meals sound delicous though!

  4. I love this! Always looking for good ideas for feeding my family! X

  5. love a good freezer clear out and I must do one as have some random things left over. i do love beans on toast

  6. I am now craving toad in the hole and bubble and squeak! x
