Our weekly meal plan! 31st July - 6th of August. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went well, we did swap Friday and Saturdays meals around as the kids went to Hull for the day, pizza's were the easy option and I didn't want to be cooking the burgers later on Saturday evening when they got in. Becky was very happy that I made the sausage casserole for when she was off work, it's funny how a normal meal can become a treat when you don't have it often. I did pick the right day to make it as it was grey and wet out.

This week should be a quiet week, I don't think we have much on apart from on Sunday, we're off out. Becky has taken a nights holiday from work so she can join in some family fun. After that I am going to go on a no spending thing apart from the food and bills. August is always an expensive month for us with Stu and Ellie's birthday and towards the end of the month we have a few plans too. I also have to buy Becky's birthday presents as her birthday is early on in September. I didn't have a clue what to get her until last week when I saw a TikTok which gave me some inspiration. I am not going to say anything because she has been mooching around trying to see if I am giving any clues away. hehehe I think it's a very clever present which she'll love but will also make her laugh a lot.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Lasagne and garlic bread. Just a one out of the freezer which just needs putting in the oven.
Tuesday - Vegetable fajitas.
Wednesday - Red onion and bacon tart with new potatoes and salad. This is inspired by one of the Gousto meals we have tried in the past but instead of leeks I use red onions.
Thursday - Fish, chips and mushy peas. We usually have this on a Friday but I always seem to do it when Becky is at work and she doesn't have time to really enjoy it, this week she will.
Friday - The Snacksters Doner Kebab or the Big Stack burger. We've had both before and they're probably not the healthiest meal but they're cooked in the microwave and are quick and filling.
Saturday - Pizza.
Sunday - I am not sure yet, we might get a Sunday lunch or a burger from the pub.

What are you eating this week?


  1. Oh can’t wait to hear what the present is!

  2. Oh Becky's pressie sounds interesting, I will be popping over for a chat and a nosey to find out hehe!
    Fab meal plan. The red onion and bacon tart sounds yummy. That's the good thing about Gousto because you can recreate the meals.
    Snacksters are really handy aren't they?! Saves spending ages cooking at night when you just don't feel like it. The Big Stacks are really nice. xx
