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

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went well. Of course the hit of the week was the pancakes, I even used the left over batter the next day and had them for lunch. We had a cheeky takeaway on Friday. It was one of those wet, rainy days where we'd all been out and had got soaked, nobody wanted to cook so it was lazy but seemed easier to get it delivered. It was good though. Ellie & I had Doner Kebabs, Stu had burger & chips and Becky had sausage, chips and gravy. 

This week Ellie has a hospital appointment, a routine check up on her heart which means another afternoon off school. We will probably get something for tea on our way home. It's either going to be Subway sandwiches or pasties from Greggs depending on how we feel and what the weather is like.

This week is going to be a bit different when it comes to food as I have taken the plunge and ordered us a Gousto box to try. I got the deal where there was 60% off. In total I paid £17.59 which seems like a right bargain for 4 meals for the four of us. I think if I bought all the ingredients from the supermarket it would come to a lot more. The box was delivered yesterday and I am so far very impressed. I am really looking forward to the Chicken Souvlaki Sandwich meal. It's something a bit different from what we usually have and after ordering I did wonder if Ellie would like it but like Becky said she will eat anything if it comes on a stick. lol

On the menu this week we have:

MondayGousto Sticky Orange Chicken With Rice.
TuesdayGousto Chicken Souvlaki Sandwich With Herby Fries.
Wednesday - Something from town.
ThursdayGousto Extra Special Bangers 'N’ Mash.
FridayGousto Crispy Bacon & Leek Tart With Zingy Potato Salad.
Saturday - Pizza.
Sunday - Veggie sausage and bean pie.

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. We just did a big stock up at a local big box warehouse store over the weekend and hopefully most of our menu is set for the month; with the weekly trip to get fresh fruits and veggies. We did great with our menu plan last week until I ran out of fresh veggies on Friday but we made it through the weekend picking meals from other weeks that we had supplies on hand for.

  2. Oooh that all sounds fabulous. Look forward to hearing what you all thought of it next week :)
