Our weekly meal plan! 16th - 22nd Dec. #MealPlanningMonday

Last weeks meal plan went well. We ate most of the meals but we swapped them around a bit.

I think going to Tesco on a Saturday evening and having a lucky dip from the reduced section is going to be our new thing. We all have different things which I wouldn't normally buy. Stu had some fancy chicken & fancy potatoes, Becky had a pasta ready meal, Ellie of course had sushi and a sandwich and I had a couple of Christmas sandwiches and we all had cake and trifle for afterwards. Everything cost about £7 which is more than I'd like to spend on one meal but it nice to have a treat and it's a lot cheaper than a takeaway. I really do love the reduced section. I got 4 packs of fresh smoked salmon on Friday for £4.40. I looked on the Tesco website and it should have cost me £14!! I have put them in the freezer for Christmas.

Today I am getting an online grocery delivery. I hadn't planned to get one until the big Christmas food shop but I decided to get all the alcohol, cupboard stuff and a few bits we need for the coming week. I am off to Iceland to get all the frozen stuff this afternoon for Christmas too. I can't wait. I love shopping for Christmas food! 

This week on the menu we have:

Monday - Lasagne and garlic bread.
TuesdayIceland Minced Beef Hotpot Traybake with veg.
Wednesday - Tomato risotto.
Thursday - Chicken fajitas.
Friday - Pizza.
Saturday - A lucky dip from the reduced section in Tesco. They have their best bargains on Saturday teatime.
Sunday - Out for a meal when we go to visit family.

What are you eating this week?


  1. Love the sound of the reduced section lucky dip ! I could happily eat all of that myself :)

  2. £7 is still a bargain really isn't it!

    Thanks for linking up this year and Merry Christmas x
