Our weekly meal plan! 27th - 3rd May. #MealPlanningMonday

I didn't realise how much stress and anxiety not getting my normal grocery shop delivered was causing me until we got a shop delivered on Wednesday. I felt as sense of relief that we would be eating well for at least another week and had choices. We were never going to starve but food was getting boring and cooking was a chore. I have also managed to get another couple of delivery slots booked for the beginning of May and then a week later. Phew!

Last weeks meal plan went well. We ate just about everything I had planned but swapped a couple of days around. I am looking forward to this week's food. I feel excited about eating and cooking again thanks to the shopping delivery. I also managed to get some frozen fruit so we will be having smoothies for breakfast along with muffins or brioch, sandwiches and picky bits for lunch and then our main meals.

This week on the menu we have:

Tuesday - A chicken salad and new potatoes. 
Wednesday - Greggs pasties from Iceland with baked beans.
Thursday - Chinese chicken using a Flava-it Chinese marinade and egg fried rice.
Friday - Pizza.
Saturday - Slow cooker pulled pork in buns.
Sunday - Mince, dumplings, mash & veg.

What are you eating this week?


  1. Aww I know what you mean - it is stressful not knowing whether you're going to manage to get shopping delivered and, even if you do, how many things will be out of stock. Glad you've managed to fill your cupboards and freezer again ! That all sounds delicious - hmmm slow cooker pulled pork, sounds divine !

    1. Shopping really is stressful at the moment. I feel so lucky we got a slot. x

  2. Sounds like another delicious week of meals! I think I will have to do a casserole soon!

  3. So glad you have a couple of deliveries they mean the world don't they. we have a couple in may and just hope things start to calm down. Your meals sound amazing and really tasty

    1. The really do mean the world. I will never moan about online grocery shopping again x

  4. Good luck! I hope you get a delivery soon x

  5. I went to Asda three weeks ago and it was awful, no social distancing, people not taking things seriously and it was hellishly stressful. I came home and cried and cried. I felt pathetic. So glad it's not just me that has struggled, if that makes sense? We now have deliveries and it's so much less stressful.
    I love your meals, I haven't made dumplings for ages, need to try and see if I can make them gluten free!
