Our weekly meal plan! 2nd - 8th September. #MealPlanningMonday

Last weeks meal plan went well. We did end up going out for a pub meal on Monday, on the way back from visiting my great aunt. Stu & I had a carvery which I loved and it was well worth the money but the kids were not too impressed with the meals they chose. Burnt lasagne for Becky and Ellie chose pizza. Nearly £5 for a Chicago Town, Deep Dish mini pizza about 10 chips and corn on the cob! When it was served to Ellie she said to me "what a rip off, you make these pizza's better! Oops.

We had another meal out on Ellie's birthday which was much better. I had the usual scampi & chips, Ellie had a build your own chicken wraps, Becky had a non-burnt lasagne and Stu had the biggest burger ever! He couldn't eat it holding it and shamed himself by eating it with a knife and fork. hehehe

The biggest hit of the home cooked meals was the fajitas. Usually I cheat and use a ready, made frozen mix but couldn't find one on the Asda website so made my own using a packet mix, peppers, onions, already cooked chicken and wraps. I will be making it again. It took 15 minutes and tasted so much better than the frozen one!

This week the kids are back at school, well college for my teen so we are going to be getting back into a routine. Finally! Since we moved house over 2 months we haven't had much of one and I am looking forward to having some real structure to our day.

This week on the menu we have:

Monday - A roast chicken dinner.
Wednesday - Spaghetti bolognese and garlic bread.
Thursday - Leftover bolognese in Stand 'N' Stuff Soft Tacos.
Friday - Pizza.
Saturday - Chinese takeaway! It's a payday treat!
Sunday - Some sort of casserole in the slow cooker.

What are you eating this week?


  1. That is an amazing burger!

    I hope Becky and Ellie have good starts to school and college and you enjoy getting your routine back :o)


  2. oh dear, I haven't managed a meal plan this week. Yours sounds good, I haven't had bolognese in ages. I love that fajita sauce and I've always got a couple of packets handy in the cupboard, it tastes good mixed in with pasta and peppers too as a pasta bake. I'm sorry your first meal out wasn't so good, I hate it when they provide microwave pizzas for the kid's, it's definitely a rip off. Glad your second meal was better though and Ellie enjoyed her birthday. x

  3. Sorry if this comes through twice - I got an error message first time !

    Loving the look of everything on your menu this week - I seriously need to get back into routine too ! Wow, that really is one huge burger. I'm not surprised he didn't manage to pick it up and fit it in his mouth ! ;-)

  4. Ooh I love the Old El Paso soft tacos - enjoy! That burger is ginormous - there's no way I'd be able to even get close to finishing that haha #MMBC

  5. Ooh I do like a payday treat.

    Nice that you got a meal out and at least you know your family love your cooking more! x

    I hope your routine comes back easily and you have a great week. Thanks for linking up!

  6. That burger looks huge, sorry to hear that you did not have an amazing first meal out. That is always annoying when that happens. You have some amazing meals planned this week. I am sure you will enjoy them xx

  7. Sounds like a delicous week of meals! I'm with you on the back to school routine, we are still struggling!
