Our weekly meal plan! 22nd - 28th August. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan was a bit hit and miss. We ate just about everything but instead of sandwiches, cakes and crisps on Wednesday I made a chicken and ham hock pie with a creamy sauce. It was so good and so different from the gravy type filling we usually have. I seem to have lost my appetite since I have had Covid which is odd because when I was feeling ill I couldn't fill myself and wanted to eat everything. I am hoping to get my appetite back this week with some tasty meals. I am already looking forward to quite a few that I have planned. It seems ages since we've had a beef roast dinner, pulled pork and a curry.

Stu had a lovely birthday and we all really enjoyed the takeaway. Getting 20% off Just Eat with the Cheeky Tuesday discount was a real bonus. We still have a meal out to have with a voucher but I think we're going to wait until Ellie goes back to school and we can make a day of it. 

We have a few of plans this week. Ellie has a check up at the dentist, Becky has to return her college laptop and we're planning a trip to the cinema finally. We seem to have been on about going to the cinema for weeks and haven't got around to it. This week we will. 

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - The roast dinner we didn't have yesterday. Beef, roast potatoes, roast parsnips, carrots, broccoli and Yorkshire puddings.
Tuesday - Pulled pork in wraps.
Wednesday - Sandwiches, cakes, crisps. A lazy tea.
Thursday - The Thai-Style coconut chicken with sweet potato fries that we didn't have a couple of weeks ago.
Friday - Pizza.
Saturday - Curry, rice, naan bread, poppadoms and mango chutney.
Sunday - Pie, mash and veg.

What are you eating this week?


  1. Great meal plan for the week! I need to try making pulled pork sometime. Hubby and son love it but I've never made it myself. Hope your appetite returns very soon!!

  2. All sounds great. I was looking back at past menu plans and I could throw together a plan with things that got bumped off the menu too. It's probably all in the cupboard/freezer waiting to be thrown together too !
