Our weekly meal plan! 20th - 26th March. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went pretty well. I was so glad that I filled the slow cooker on Tuesday as when it got to tea time after a day of painting I did not feel like cooking. It would have been a takeaway if I hadn't have filled the slow cooker. I felt so proud of myself, getting the living room finished and saving some money. The highlight of the week were the black pudding scotch eggs. I made them from scratch and they turned out really well, it's something I will be making again. We did end up having a takeaway on Friday night, fish and chips. The kids got into my head saying how much they fancied a chippy tea. 

I would like to say we have no workmen coming this week but we have an engineer coming to sort out the problem with our gas meter, it's not showing any numbers or even switching on and we have a plumber coming to look at our low water pressure. It should all be hassle free and thankfully dust free! I have been dusting way more than usual since the window was boxed in last week and then I finished off the sanding and there was more dust. I think I have got it all now but my nose really has suffered, I was sneezing and had a runny nose. I thought I was coming down with a cold, I even did a Covid test but it seems as soon as I got rid of all the dust my nose cleared it's self. Phew!

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Tomato & meatball pasta bake. Monday's always seem to be busy so we're having one of Asda's big family ready meals with garlic bread.
Tuesday - Pork and apple sausages with potato wedges and mushrooms and peas.
Wednesday - Pea and ham soup with crusty bread. My family loved it last time that I made it and have asked for it again.
Thursday - Tuna fritters with some sort of rice.
Friday - Scampi, chips and peas.
Saturday - Pizza.
Sunday - A roast dinner of some sort.

What are you eating this week?


  1. Tomato & meatball pasta bake sounds yummy. I haven't made that for ages - thanks for the inspiration :)

  2. OH yes, construction dust seems to be never ending at times! Glad you weren't get sick though and it was just the dust. Yay for thinking ahead and putting a meal in the slow cooker and for getting the painting done.

  3. I love the sound of the tuna fritters. Glad to hear you're getting the house sorted out xx
