Our weekly meal plan! 7th - 13th December. #MealPlanningMonday

Our Weekly Meal Plan.

Our meal plan went OK. The kids were not keen on the Orange chicken that we had on Monday but did eat it. The meal planning went wrong over the weekend when a friend of the family unexpectedly passed away from Coronavirus. None of us in were any mood to cook or even eat so a takeaway seemed like a good option. We were going to get a Chinese but it would have been a 2 hour wait so we got pizza and there was enough leftovers for Sunday too. 

We were supposed to be going into town today doing a bit of Christmas shopping but I simply don't want to. I asked myself are a few extra Christmas presents worth the risk? Sitting on a bus for 20 minutes each way then mixing with people in shops with some people probably getting too close without masks. After the weekend Coronavirus has really scared me. I am not willing to take any risks.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Mince and dumplings with mash.
Tuesday - I will add baked beans to the leftover mince and make a shepherd type pie using the leftover mash too.
Wednesday - Slow cooker butter chicken and rice.
Friday - Fish, chips and mushy peas.
Saturday - Pizza!
Sunday - Sausage sandwiches.

What are you eating this week?


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about the loss, sending love to you x

  2. So sorry to hear about Ellie's friend's Mum, how very sad. I can understand you not wanting to risk going out. It sounds like you've got your food worked out though. I haven't sorted mine yet. xx

  3. I am so sorry to hear about the loss your family suffered this weekend. I can completely understand why it threw off your menu planning and why you are questioning the safety of shopping. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. #MMBC

  4. Sounds like a tasty week, Kim. I love the sound of creamy broccoli and bacon pasta. I am sorry to hear about your friend, too. I don't go anywhere at the minute just work and shopping.

  5. I am so sorry for the loss of your family friend and i would have felt the same abuout the shopping. Lovely meal plan xx
