Our weekly meal plan! 24th - 30th October. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went OK. Wednesday came around and I couldn't be bothered making the Minestrone soup and we ended up having sausage pasta and we swapped Friday and Saturday around. It was ready meal curries on Friday and the kids had pizza and fries on Saturday and Stu and I had one of the £12 Asda meal deals. One of those where you get 1 main, 1 side, 1 dessert and 1 drink or chocolates for £12. The steak and red wine pies are delicious and the lemon cheesecake too.

Last week I spotted that Asda were releasing their Christmas delivery slots to delivery pass users so I bought the delivery pass and got my Christmas slot! Hooray! It was the exact one that I wanted too. I didn't just buy the delivery pass to get the Christmas slot, I used to use Tesco every week but struggled to get a slot with them even with their delivery pass. It was time to let them go, I have been using Asda more and more and I am finding their prices more reasonable.

It's half term here this week, hooray and we have a few things planned. Poor Becky has a couple of night shifts to get through before she can join in but she won't be missing out on all the fun things, her and Ellie will be having a day out later in the week. Ellie is very annoyed that they day that she goes back to school is Halloween. It does seem a little unfair but I think it makes next week more exciting. Halloween at the start of the week and Bonfire night at the end.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - We will be eating out at lunch so will probably bring something home to eat later on. It will most likely be Greggs or Subway.
WednesdaySandwiches, crisps and cake! We're having a baking day so there will be plenty of treats to eat.
Thursday - Jacket potatoes with baked beans and cheese.
Friday - Fish, chips and mushy peas.
SaturdayRed onion and bacon tart with new potatoes.
Sunday - A roast dinner of some sort.

What are you eating this week?


  1. The ASDA meal deal sounds great. Plus it reminds me that we do have steak in the freezer! Other than that I think beef stew, pork chops and IDK.

  2. My husband and son went deep sea fishing yesterday so we're having some fresh caught fish for dinner tonight. Later this week we're having homemade pizzas, sloppy joes, and chicken soup.

  3. All sounds lovely and well done on getting the Christmas delivery slot - one less thing to worry about !

  4. We fell off the Blogtober truck! Well, at least we did make it more than halfway. Your meal plan sounds lovely and for savings sake, I hope you will be able to stick to it, even if you switch things around.
