Our weekly meal plan! 25th Sept - 1st October. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went really well, we ate everything! The Coca Cola chicken came out really well, the last time I made it in the slow cooker and it wasn't sticky but this time I made it in the pan and it came out perfectly! All of our meals worked out well with the weather not being so nice, they were warming and filling, just what we needed. 

I wasn't too happy with my food shop delivery on Friday as a lot of the things I ordered had short dates on them. The pizza had to be used on the same day, thankfully it was but other things had use by dates for over the weekend but I wasn't planning to use them until this week. I don't usually take much notice of use by dates but it's the principle of it, if I order something it shouldn't have a use by date for the same or next day. I have of course complained. Ugh!

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Chicken fajitas. A nice easy start to the week. Stu will do the cooking tonight, it's his day off and does like to cook although I will probably hover over him and make sure he doesn't make it too spicy.
Tuesday - A roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings. I know we only had one at the weekend but it was just Stu and I. The kids wanted one too.
WednesdayBubble & squeak with fried eggs. We haven't had Bubble & squeak in forever and it is a great way to use all the leftovers from a roast dinner. 
Thursday - Pizza Pasta Bake.
Friday - Fish and chips with mushy peas.
Saturday - Home made pizza. 
Sunday - A fry up! Sausage, eggs, bacon, black pudding, mushrooms, baked beans, tomatoes hash browns and toast. We're having a rare weekend staying at home and we're having a lazy Sunday.  

What are you eating this week?


  1. oooooh I love bubble and squeak a real blast from the past. My Mum used to make it every Monday with our Sunday roast leftovers. Sadly we don't really do Sunday roasts anymore. Fish chips and mushy peas is another of my favourites and we did have a chippie tea this week but I had battered sausage rather than fish. xx

  2. That is annoying when the supermarket sends things that have short expiry dates. Interestingly my cousin who worked at a supermarket for many years told me that they are instructed to pack meat and fresh produce etc. with short expiry dates when they are preparing online shopping orders. So now I check too!

  3. My meal plan was going so well and then we blew the heating element in our stove Friday afternoon and I'm waiting for a part to come in. Paired with the fact that I skipped grocery shopping this morning since it was pouring out I'm thinking we're having take out tonight and hopefully I can then use the meal plan for the rest of the week. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the part comes in today like they anticipated and that the rain stops so I can go shopping tomorrow.
