Our weekly meal plan! 20th - 26th December. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went well, we ate everything. I am so looking forward to this week. The kids are off school and college and I get to spend time with my family. I didn't get any shopping delivered over the weekend as we're having the big Christmas food shop delivered later this week. We're running low on things at the moment but we will make do.

It's my dad's birthday later this week and he has already had one of his surprises. He has needed a new computer for years but keeps making do with his old one. Over the last year Stu built him a new computer using leftover bits from his and Ellie's computer when they have upgraded. All it's cost is £40 for a new hard drive, I think that's what Stu said he had bought. We delivered it and set it up on Friday and he was very surprised and overjoyed with it. The only thing he has to complain about is that it's too fast. On Thursday, his birthday he is coming over to let his partner have a soak in our bath (they only have a shower at theirs) and I am doing a party tea for his birthday and there will of course be cake.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - A curry of some sort with rice & naan bread.
Tuesday - I will make extra curry and we will have it with chips. 
Wednesday - Omelettes to use up leftovers in the fridge as I have the Christmas food shop coming. 
Thursday - Party food for my dad's birthday.
Friday - Takeaway pizza.
Saturday - Christmas dinner!! Turkey, pork and maybe beef if I can get a cheap joint. Roast potatoes, mash, roast parsnips, carrots, peas, stuffing, pigs in blankets and lashings of gravy!
Sunday - Leftovers and picking out of the fridge.

Merry Christmas! What will you be eating on Christmas day?


  1. We get takeaway pizza on Christmas eve each year. I can not wait to have a slice as I haven't had "real" pizza in a long time having made do with my homemade ones.

  2. We have a big turkey dinner on Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day we usually have a lot of seafood. I think I might need to stop eating now so I can fit everything in on those two days!!

  3. Merry Christmas to you and your family Kim :o)

    We will have smoked ham, potato salad and sauerkraut on Christmas Eve and then I'll do a roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings on Christmas Day - I can't wait for that!


  4. Loving the fact your dad got a new computer for forty quid! Also admiring this meal plan and thinking I should get back into meal planning too.

  5. Turkey, pork, beef, roasties and mash? - blooming heck woman, that's about three meals in one ! lol. It does sound lovely though and we'll be having something similar, just in a scaled down version ! Your dad's computer sounds great - love the fact that he thinks it's too fast hehe ! Hope you all have a fabulous Christmas. Love and hugs xx
