Our weekly meal plan! 22nd - 28th January. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went OK. We ate everything and enjoyed it. The Heinz tomato ketchup filled hash browns were so good but were so filling, we really didn't need 2 each on our plates along with everything else. I cooked the breaded fish for the first time in the air fryer and it was so good, much better than being cooked in the oven.

As much as we enjoyed the food, I didn't enjoy cooking it. There didn't seem much cooking, it was more just putting things in the air fryer or oven. I missed having a Gousto box. At the start of the year I wasn't that inspired with the Gousto recipes, they seemed too healthy with not enough comfort food but this week seems more comforting which is just what we need at this time of year so we're back on the Gousto bandwagon and I have have next weeks meals booked.

We don't have much planned for this week. The normal college for Ellie and she has an assessment which she has been revising hard for and Stu and Becky are at work. This is the week Becky hates where she only gets one full day off between night shifts. The good thing is once she gets through it she gets a weekend off. 

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Ready to fill potato skins from Iceland with mince, onions, mushroom and gravy inside.
Tuesday - Gousto meal - One pot minty lamb & potato stew. My family have decided they like lamb now so I am really looking forward to making this.
Wednesday - Gousto meal - Cheesy bean pasty with potato wedges. 
Thursday - Gousto meal - Chicken & coconut Dal with rice and garlic naan.
Friday - Gousto meal - Veggie Philly Cheese'steak' with loaded cheesy chips. The kids are really looking forward to this, they are all about the cheese. 
Saturday - Sweet and sour saucy chicken bites, chicken chow Mein, egg fried rice, prawn toast and salt & pepper chicken spring rolls. All from Iceland.
Sunday - Out for a roast dinner!

What are you eating this week?


  1. Those Gousto meals sound great. Love the sound of the Chinese meal too and the potato skins are a fab idea. Have a great week xx

  2. We FINALLY made it to the grocery store this weekend and I have a meal plan in place this week! I'll have to tweak it a bit as I forgot to consult our calendar while planning and forgot that Evan has 2 late afternoon appointments so I need quick/easy meals those days but at least I have some sort of idea. Your week sounds delicious!

  3. Your meals sound delicious. I love comfort food even when it's summer, so I made a lasagna last night. I'm slowly getting back into the routine of cooking proper meals. I did a proper food shop and I want to get back to meal planning. The Guosto boxes sound good, they're not available over here but we do have Hello Fresh which I have never tried. I have the idea that it's expensive so I have never looked into it. Maybe I should? Have a fantastic week xx
