Our weekly meal plan! 31st October - 6th November. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went really well. We ate everything that I had planned and on the day I had planned too. Hooray! It has given me motivation for meal planning again. I was feeling a bit blah about it recently. It's hard work having to come up with a meal every day. I ask my family for help and suggestions and if they were planning what we are eating we'd be having plates of "I don't know, I don't mind" or takeaway every night. lol

This week will all be about getting back to normal, half term is over and Ellie is back at school and is doing the second half of her mock exams. She said she has the best exams this week. English Literature all about A Christmas Carol which she has revised hard for, she has a full day doing her photography and another full day doing engineering, her two favourite subjects.

I will have some company this week, Stu has some holidays to use up from work. He was told to use some of his holidays as no one can take them between the middle of November and the end of January as it's the companies busiest time and from then until April everyone seems to take holidays so he'd struggle to get them. He's took 3 days off and along with his normal days off it turns out he's only working 2 days out of the next 8. Our local pub has started serving food again so I think we might treat ourselves to a pub lunch one day.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Pumpkin soup which I made yesterday along with crusty bread.
Tuesday - Something out of the freezer with chips and most probably baked beans.
Thursday - Spaghetti bolognese with garlic bread.
Friday - Leftover bolognese over jacket potatoes.
Saturday - We're eating out. We're going to see a firework display and will get something to eat while we are there. Burgers probably.
Sunday - A fry up. Sausages, bacon, eggs, mushrooms, baked beans, tomatoes and toast.

What are you eating this week?


  1. It is hard which is why since "we" have started meal planning I come here every Monday before I start to think. My husband had last week off and it all went to pot with lots of eating out/takeaways under the guise of it's the holidays. Enjoy your time off with Stu.

  2. Love your meal plan this week! And thanks for sharing the soup, hope you enjoyed it!
    Glad you and Stu are getting some time together and have a fab night Saturday. xx
