Our weekly meal plan! 17th - 23rd January. #MealPlanningMonday

Our Weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan was a huge success. We ate everything on the day it was supposed to be eaten and we all loved everything which was an extra bonus. The Sausage and apple traybake was the biggest hit of the week. I did add sliced onions and peppers to it and skipped on the cubetti di pancetta as I didn't have a clue what it was until I Googled it and the spinach as we are not keen. When I was dishing it out the kids were asking for gravy as they thought it was dry but as the olive oil and apple mixed together it made a sweet sticky sauce/glaze and they were pleasantly surprised.

We are trying something new with the food shopping. Instead of getting a food shop every week we're trying to get it fortnightly and then just do little top up shops for bread, milk, fruit and things like that. So far so good, we didn't get any shopping delivered over the weekend have been to the local shop for bread and milk and we're not missing a big shop. We are hoping it saves a bit of money. When I get the food shop I buy fresh treats like doughnuts or silly things like ready made sandwiches which really do add to the bill.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Easy beef stew and mashed potato.
Tuesday - Soup with ham sandwiches to dip in.
Wednesday - Richmond Family Tomato Sausage Pasta and garlic bread.
Thursday - Fish fingers chips and baked beans.
Friday - Homemade pizza.
Saturday - Burgers in buns with corn on the cob.
Sunday - Chicken pies, mash & veg.

I am linking up with Karen over at Cat's, Kids, Chaos who is the host of the meal planning linky. If you blog about your meal plan do come and link up!


  1. I'm trying to shop every fortnight instead of every week now too. We have a really good market here twice a week so I can top up on fresh vegetables and bread there and support the market sellers at the same time :o)


  2. That sausage/apple traybake sounds delicious!

  3. I have all the ingredients for a stew but I'm lacking motivation for food atm.

  4. Glad the sausage and apple traybake went down well - I'll have to try making that one. Good idea to try doing a big shop every fortnight to cut down on the little extras. #MMBC

  5. oh yes perfect time of year for some lovely comfort food. We need to have a beef stew soon get the slow cooker out. Also need to have a chicken pie maybe nicking that one for Sunday lunch x

  6. Cutting down on the shopping sounds like a good way to save money. It's so easy to buy lots of non-essentials that soon add up ! Love the sound of the beef casserole - perfect for the colder weather :)

  7. I love it when a meal plan goes to plan and you eat what's planned. Sounds great. The apple and sausage traybake sounds so good.
