Our weekly meal plan! 3rd - 9th October. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan was mostly a success. The Slow-cooker Mexican corn chowder did not go down well. Ellie said she has vomited better looking food and Becky ate a little but we all ended up leaving quite a bit of it which is a shame as I hate food waste. The Sage and onion pork meatballs I made on Monday were a hit though. They were so filling and tasted and smelled so good. I will be making them again.

Over the past few days I have bought quite a few of the girls Christmas presents and ended up treating myself to a hand blender, what have I become. lol Years ago a treat would be a new outfit or pair of shoes now it's stuff for the kitchen. I have needed one and I mostly bought it just so I can make soup more easily. I had been using the bigger blender that we use to make smoothies but it is such a faff. I will be trying it out during the week when we have our favourite soup.

I had a little miracle happen on Friday. I got my online food shop as normal and there were no substitutions. It is the first time in a long time that that's happened. I even bought some random things that I wouldn't normally and they arrived. It's little things like that make me happy.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Meat free mince sloppy joes with potato salad.
Tuesday - Fried egg, chips and baked beans. So simple but so good.
Thursday - Sausage and tomato pasta.
Friday - Pizza.
Saturday - We're out for the day so something either when we're out or something like toasties when we get in.
Sunday - A roast dinner of some sort.

What are you eating this week?


  1. Lasagna, roast, pizza, egg and chips, something with sweet potato wedges no doubt - and then still struggling

  2. Aww it's a shame when something doesn't go down well - at least we have a dog to feed the leftovers to ! I haven't had egg and chips for donkey's years - hmm !
