Our weekly meal plan! 21st - 27th October. #MealPlanningMonday

Last weeks meal plan went pretty well. I think we ate just about everything. I of course swapped a couple of days around but nothing went to waste as everything was coming out of the freezer or cupboards.

This week the kids are off school for half term and we have a couple of days out planned but not much else. I am guessing we'll have a baking day and I really do want Ellie to make the sausage rolls that she made at school last week. They were so good!

We were at the local auction over the weekend and I got myself another bargain which will help with my meal planning. I bought a 4ft, 6 drawer upright freezer for £26 and I can't wait to start using it. I am planning on doing more batch cooking and it also means I can start buying for Christmas. Buying a little every week will make the big Christmas food shop a little cheaper.

This week on the menu we have:

MondayFish fingers, chips and spaghetti hoops.
TuesdaySlow cooker Italian chicken stew with garlic bread to dip in.
Wednesday - Baking day! Sausage rolls and cakes.
Friday - Pizza.
Saturday - A curry of some sort.
Sunday - A roast chicken dinner.

What are you eating this week?


  1. Love your freezer bargain! Perfect for meal freezing. I'm also buying a little every week. #MMBC

  2. Hope you have a wonderful week together. As always your meals sound great - thanks for linking up! x

  3. Ooh I haven't bought fish fingers for ages - definitely one for the next shop :)

  4. I have a second freezer in our storage room. Best thing I ever bought. It's so useful when we have visitors. I can just pull out something frozen and spend the time with my guests instead. #MMBC

  5. Delicious sounding meals! #blogtober

  6. Funnily enough I have a craving for garlic bread right now and like the sound of that stew. #MMBC

  7. I have a chest freezer which is great Christmas, especially as we host Christmas and end up with around 8 - 10 people for Dinner.
    Your meal plan this week looks great.

  8. I haven't done a menu again!! In fact I'm behind with the shopping again! I'm supposed to be going to the supermarket today but I feel like crap and I'm waiting for someone to come and fix my downstairs toilet that flooded the entire hallway yesterday. Sorry for giving you my life story...but looking at your menu I really fancy the ham and mushroom pasta bake now :)

  9. love ham and pasta bake its so lovely and comforting
