Our weekly meal plan! 26th July - 1st August. #MealPlanningMonday

Our Weekly Meal Plan

We made it to the summer holidays without any more bubbles bursting. Hooray. Ellie had a fab last day at school. The last of year 9. It was a non-uniform day, they had an ice cream van in the playground over lunchtime and no lessons all afternoon. We had a lovely weekend too. Becky was away at her girlfriends so Stu, Ellie and me went to the local auction where I didn't end up getting anything that I planned to buy and instead bought a cross trainer for £15 which has been cleaned and is now in the garage. The unplanned buys are always the best. I am now on a mission to get fit.

Cross trainer

Last weeks meal plan went well. We ate everything! I think the lighter, more summery food helped although it has cooled down compared to what it was. As of writing this yesterday we are still waiting for the rain that has been promised. It has looked like rain for 3 days but nothing has appeared yet. It's supposed to be sunny and dry today but the rest of the week is forecast rain, again.

We don't have much planned for this week. I think we're just going to ease ourselves into the summer holidays gently without planning anything. When it comes to the meal planning I usually plan what day we're eating what but during the holidays I just list the meals and decide on the day what we're eating.

On the menu this week we have:

Jacket potatoes with beans and cheese.
Sandwiches, crisps and cakes that we bake.
Sausages, chips and baked beans.

What are you eating this week?

  1. The meatloaf with onion gravy sounds delicious! We often have jacket potatoes if I'm feeling lazy - bacon and mushroom or ratatouille and cheese are my favourite toppings but beans are good too :o)


  2. Glad the end of year went well. Enjoy the cross trainer! #MMBC

  3. I tend to use my daily meal plan as a guide and don't necessarily end up eating what we had planned on that exact day of the week. Enjoy the summer holidays!

  4. My family won't eat curry with fruit in! I love it but it's not worth making it just for me. Have a great week, and don't overdo it on that cross trainer :) xx

  5. £15 what a bargain!
    Your meals sounds lush this week, you can't beat sausage, chips and baked beans!

  6. So glad the end of year went well. Lots of lovely meals on your list not done meatloaf ever i will be having a look x

  7. We are having a quiet week too. I think we need it! Well done on your fitness journey, I need to do more than I am doing.
    Fab meal plan too. I love jackets, cheesy beans is one of my faves! xx

  8. I am glad the school year ended well. Have fun using the cross trainer. If I had one I would use it in front of the TV and multi task, haha.

  9. Amazing bargain at the auction for the cross trainer. Your meals sound delicious, especially the meatloaf. Have a good week x

  10. Wow, well done on buying the cross trainer - it looks fab ! I've just put meatloaf on this week's menu plan but I'm not sure, I think I prefer the sound of your one ! And ice cream at school - how cool is that ?! xx
