Our weekly meal plan! 30th January - 5th February. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went brilliantly. We ate just about everything. The turkey breast roast served us well and we got the 3 meals out of and even had leftovers which Stu took to work. We decided over the weekend to get a Chinese takeaway instead of having shop bought pizza. It was almost the end of the month and we hadn't had a takeaway in ages and I think the last time we had a Chinese takeaway was Ellie's birthday in August.

Every week when I am doing the food shop online order and meal planning I ask my family what they want for the following week and they are usually no help but this time they actually made suggestions. It takes some of the pressure off me when they help out by even just telling me what they want to eat.

I don't have much on this week. The landlord is on about coming to do some work on the house. The front wall, around the window in the living room is always freezing. There is no insulation as there is no cavity, it's just brick and then plaster on the inside so we're getting some insulated wall of some sort put up. From what I gather it's just special plasterboard which will be put on the inside wall. Hopefully it will make it warmer in here.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Stu is cooking. The kids wanted the creamy chicken, leek and potato bake which he hasn't made in ages.
Tuesday - Beef and garlic mushroom En Croute with mashed potato, carrots and onion gravy.
Wednesday - Carrot & coriander soup with mango chutney twists. It is a recipe that I got from Gousto when we were using them.
Thursday - Hot dogs in buns with fries.
Friday - Scampi, chips and peas.
Saturday - Pizza.
Sunday - A roast dinner of some sort.

What are you eating this week?


  1. Ooh yes we haven’t had a hot dog night for ages!

  2. Oh I just love when the kids and family have menu suggestions! It sounds like a delicious week.

  3. I've given up asking the kids for help with menu plans - they never have a clue ! I love the sound of the creamu chicken, leek and potato bake and the beef and garlic mushroom on croute looks divine - hmmm !
