Our weekly meal plan! 29th August - 4th September. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went pretty well. We ate everything apart from the pie and mash yesterday. I ended up making a chicken casserole instead. I had some veg that needed using up before the shopping was delivered so it made sense. 

This week is going to be a good one. It is Ellie's birthday today and we have lots of yummy treats and of course cake to have. We don't have much planned for today apart from nipping to my dad's. Stu is going to have a look at his computer, there's something not working and Ellie and I are going to go bramble picking. We are also going to have another trip to the cinema sometime this week as now that Ellie is 15 she can watch 15 rated films. She has been dying to see Where the Crawdads Sing so we're going to book ourselves in for that.

It is also sadly the last week of the summer holidays. They have really flown over. I know we lost almost a couple of weeks to Covid but where did the rest of the days go? I am dreading the start of the new term, no more lazy mornings but I think we are ready for a bit of routine again. It will certainly make sticking to the meal plan easier! It reminds me that I need to find out if Ellie is having school lunches or packed lunches so I can start planning the next food shop. 

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Chinese takeaway and birthday cake of course! Yum, yum!
Tuesday - Red onion and bacon tart with potato salad.
Wednesday - Sandwiches, cakes, crisps. A lazy tea.
Friday - Pizza. Maybe home made if we can be bothered.
Saturday - Nachos Supreme! Nachos with a ton of toppings.
Sunday - Sausages, mash and baked beans.

What are you eating this week?


  1. Ahh I thought you'd gone quiet but it turns out, I've stopped getting the daily emails with your blogposts in ! I'll have to go and check out why. Sounds like a tasty week. Love the fact that gousto has the recipes available - I had no idea what went into a katsu curry so that needs investigating ! :)

  2. Thank you for this - we seriously need to start meal planning and so you may just find a lot more traffic to your blog.
