Our weekly meal plan! 2nd - 8th August. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went well. We skipped a couple of meals but it's fine, I expect it during the summer holidays when plans change or we just can't be bothered. The weather hasn't helped either. It has felt more like Autumn than summer over the last few days. The fruity chicken curry was so good and the meatloaf took longer to cook than I initially thought. I ended up making it on Saturday and leaving it in the fridge overnight to firm up. It was worth the wait though. 

I had a strange issue with my shopping delivery on Friday. I ordered the food as usual and got the email Friday morning telling me about the 10 substitutions and 5 unavailable items. I was a little annoyed but when my shopping was delivered I noticed all my shopping was there apart from one thing which was substituted. It's like someone had picked my shopping and said they couldn't find half the stuff then someone else went and did it properly. I'm not complaining, I just found it really odd.

We don't have much planned for this week but I am wanting to do something with the kids. I have said if the weather is OK we'll go for a couple of walks and I am hoping to get into town one day to pick a few things up that we're running out of like batteries and cleaning things.

On the menu this week we have:

Greggs pasties with chips.
Richmond tomato sausage pasta with garlic bread and garlic mushrooms.
Veggie fried rice with spring rolls, prawn toast and prawn crackers if I can find any.
Sandwiches, crisps, sausage rolls and other picky bits.

What are you eating this week?
