Our weekly meal plan! 5th - 11th December. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

The meal plan went pretty well considering I had felt rubbish all week with a cough and cold. Thankfully I am feeling a lot better now and the cough has just about gone. The only meal we really changed was the home made pizza, we decided to have my red onion and bacon tart instead. Like the kids said it is pretty close to pizza and something we've not had in a while. The slow cooker chicken stroganoff that we had was not a success. It was tasteless but we still ate it, I won't be making it again.

This week is operation empty the big freezer and get it defrosted as it has really started to ice up. I realised late last week that I am going shopping to Iceland to get all of the Christmas frozen food, things like the turkey and party food next week. I have been thinking I have a few of weeks to do it so it has really crept up on me.

This week is going to be the last quiet week before Christmas so I am going to enjoy it and relax a little. I feel like I need to after last week was a gloomy one for me. I was in such a grump. This week I am planning on doing nice things like baking and watching plenty of Christmas films. I was thinking about decorating my gingerbread house but it feels a bit early for that.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Leftover chicken curry and rice. 
Tuesday - Steak pies and peas.
Wednesday - Chicken nuggets/dippers, hash brown onion rings and corn on the cob.
Thursday - Leftover sausage pasta with garlic bread.
Friday - Fish fingers / Fish cakes, chips and baked beans.
Saturday - Whatever is left in the freezer.
SundayLeftover sausage casserole and mash.

What are you eating this week?


  1. oh thank you - don't think we have done pie for a little while. I need to do extra days shopping this week as the delivery slots are just ridiculous. Glad you are feeling better too.

  2. Oh I really need to empty and thaw out our chest freezer too; the ice chunks are starting to get in the way of it closing properly. We're having some quick and easy meals like tacos and burgers and pasta this week; mostly because I have one son who is super busy every single night this week!

  3. Ha I've just done this week's plan and am planning on clearing out the fridge and freezer too ! I really fancy a steak pie now - hmmm !
