Our weekly meal plan! 23rd - 29th January. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan was a bit hit and miss. It went more to plan than not and despite swapping and scrapping a meal or two so I am happy. I had a right palaver with the doctors and getting my contraceptive implant changed but it's all done now and hopefully I won't be back there for 3 years. I really do hate going to the doctors.

Becky and Ellie ended up cooking tea on Thursday night as both of my arms were sore. We had home made fish, chips and mushy peas, just out of the freezer but they did a great job. It was nice to have someone do the cooking for me. Food always seems to taste better when someone else cooks.

This week we will mostly be eating turkey! My dad was in the shop Iceland a couple of weeks ago and saw that they had the frozen turkey breast roasts on sale. The same one over Christmas I paid about £22 for and he got for £11 with the money off and his pensioners discount on a Tuesday. He dropped it off and it's been sat in my freezer since. I cooked it on Sunday and Stu and I had a couple of turkey sandwiches, it's so nice.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Sweet and sour turkey with salt and pepper chips and spring rolls. If I can find some prawn crackers in the shop locally we will have those too.
TuesdayA lazy chicken curry but with turkey instead. We will have it along with rice and naan bread.
Thursday - Spam fritters, chips and baked beans.
Friday - Cod steaks in butter sauce (shop bought, not homemade), new potatoes, peas and sweetcorn.
Saturday - Pizza.
Sunday - A roast dinner of some sort.

What are you eating this week?


  1. I love a nice Sunday dinner with loads of brussel sprouts. Having a fry up tonight I think

  2. What a bargain! I do love turkey, my family not so much. I even like turkey sandwiches and I don't normally eat meat on bread (I'm a bit weird like that) It's great how you can make a good turkey last 3 days, I did something similar at Christmas. It's always nice having dinner cooked for you too, well done to your girls. I think I should get my girls involved a bit more with the cooking. x

  3. Mmmm yum. Your meals sound delicious. Turkey is supposed to be very good for you because it’s low in fat and also has a natural chemical that lifts your mood! Best of all it was half price 😊
