Our weekly meal plan! 26th December - 1st January. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went well as far as I know, I wrote this blog post in the middle of last week, trying to get ahead with things so I can take some time off blogging and spend it with my family. If all went to plan we had a big family meal out on Friday night for my dad's birthday. Me and my lot, my brother and his family, my dad's partners son, sister and her family and a few other people. It's the first time we've all been together so it was something different.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I am sure we did. I do love this week when it comes to food, I tend not to do a lot of cooking, I use the excuse that I slaved away cooking the Christmas dinner and deserve a break but we all love the leftovers and the snacky food, things like sausage rolls, chicken bits, crisps, nuts, cheese, cake and of course the trifle which I only make once a year at this time of year. 

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Leftovers! Turkey, veg, stuffing and lashings of gravy. Basically another Christmas dinner.
Tuesday - Leftovers and snacking out of the fridge. The fridge is full and I am just daring the kids to say they can't find anything to eat. lol
Wednesday - Home made turkey curry with chips. I think by now we'll fancy a proper meal.
Thursday - A fry up. Bacon, sausages, black pudding, mushrooms, baked beans and tomatoes.
Friday - Lunch out and probably more snacking on the evening.
Saturday - Party food and nibbles on New Years Eve! We are really looking forward to NYE as we are all home, even Becky has the night off from work.
Sunday - Leftover party food and nibbles.

I hope you all had a great Christmas and wishing you all the best for the New Year!

What are you eating this week? 


  1. I was going to cook dinner tonight but my mother in law just brought over a bunch of leftovers so I may change up our menu and make it a fend for yourself night.

  2. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Yes we have lots of leftover Christmas food to get through and are eating out for a birthday too.

  3. As we were at my mum and dad's, we got through the whole turkey after two meals and a round of turkey sandwiches - I'd still have eaten more and the turkey curry sounds great ! Yuck for the black pudding though - you can keep that ! We're back home tomorrow so I've just posted a menu plan for ten days. Time to get back into routine now !
