Our weekly meal plan! 5th - 11th February. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went well, we ate everything apart from the pizza on Saturday because Stu and I went out for a late lunch on Tuesday so didn't feel like a big meal on the evening so all the Gousto meals were eaten on different days that I had planned. They were all eaten eventually! Our favourite from the week was the Curried winter veg soup. It was perfect for this time of year, so warming and there was plenty of it too. If you like soup at this time of year Jayne at Sticky Mud & Belly Laughs has a fantastic post with The Best Winter Warming Soups.

We unintentionally saved a bit of money with the food shop for this week. We didn't need much and it came to about £60 for the online food shop but when it was delivered a lot of it wasn't so it came to £39. lol The stuff not delivered wasn't things we were really desperate for so I haven't had to go out and buy them. I think the last time I spent under £40 on the weekly food shop was when I was single without kids. lol

This week we have another Gousto box coming, the last one before we take a little break from it. We don't have much on for this coming week. It should be a normal week with Stu and Becky at work and Ellie at college.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Stu is cooking, him cooking on a Monday is becoming a thing which I am really liking! We're having the pizza that we didn't have on Saturday.
Tuesday - Gousto meal - Garlic & herb stuffed chicken with sweet potato mash.
Wednesday - Gousto meal - Oven baked pork belly & winter veg pot roast.
Thursday - Gousto meal - Honey chicken with tomato & pepper rice bake.
Friday - Gousto meal - Chip shop fish & chip burger with curry sauce. 
Saturday - Lasagne and garlic bread. Becky is off work and has said she wants to make the Lasagne from scratch. She's made one before so I trust her. 
Sunday - Out for Sunday lunch.

What are you eating this week?


  1. That meal plan you are having this week sounds really delicious

  2. Your meals sound delicious! The price of groceries just keeps going up and up. It's madness! I got my online order the other day and I had so many missing items which is very unusual. But I ended up having to reorder because they were things we needed for the week. I spent so long on the live chat that it would probably have been easier just to walk up to the shops and buy it!

  3. Honey chicken sounds delicious! Your weekly meal plan sounds great.

  4. I've just checked out the Gousto website - all their meals look and sound delicious!


  5. That's great that you managed to get a cheap shop in. I love the sound of all your meals this week. I hope the gousto options taste as great as they sound :)

  6. That garlic and herb stuffed chicken sounds delicious! We did really well with our meal planning last week too and I'm pretty sure we ate everything we had planned (though I too had to swap a few nights around).
