Our weekly meal plan! 8th - 14th April. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last week we had a great week of food, of course the meal plan went well as there wasn't much of a plan as were were eating out a few times. We went to our local pub for a meal, the all you can eat place in Hull and then yesterday we had Sunday lunch out at our favourite cafe. We had of course ate a lot of chocolate over the past week from Easter and sausage rolls and doughnuts from Greggs. I do love treat weeks like this but it is going to be good to get back to normal and eat some proper meals. 

This week is going to be a normal one, mostly with a bit of routine. Stu is back at work tomorrow but Ellie still has another week off from college. I almost forgot that she had 2 weeks off for Easter. We don't have much planned, I was in the garden over the weekend and got it all dug up and weeded so I am thinking about doing some planting.

We are back on the Gousto boxes this week. I wasn't too fussed about getting one but the girls really pleaded their cases saying they really wanted the meals they picked out, I think the worst thing I ever did was show them the Gousto website. lol Ellie has said that she wants to help with the cooking so that is a bonus.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Jacket potatoes with baked beans and cheese.
Tuesday - Gousto meal - Lemony Chicken Milanese With Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce
Wednesday - Gousto meal - Pork Spring Roll Wraps With Sweet Chilli Sauce.
Thursday - Gousto meal - Smoky Beef Mince Enchiladas With Tomato Salsa.
Friday - Gousto meal - Garlic Bread Chicken Burger With Roasted Garlic Aioli.
Saturday - Red onion and bacon tart with new potatoes.
Sunday - Sunday lunch out! We have options now. I don't know whether we will go to the pub our our favourite cafe.

What are you eating this week?


  1. I can understand why your girls want to order the Gousto boxes. Lemony Chicken Milanese and Garlic Bread Chicken Burger With Roasted Garlic Aioli sound delicious!


  2. I love jacket potatoes with baked beans and cheese! I was just watching something, You Tube or another channel, about a food truck in London that had these jacket potatoes. They were really loaded with baked beans and cheese and looked delicious.

  3. You really can't beat jacket potatoes beans and cheese, my daughter was going to have this yesterday but we hadn't any beans!!! Totally shocked because I generally have a few tins in the cupboard. I like the gousto meals but it's hard with six of us. I've tried buying them for five and you do get quite a lot so they have worked, it depends on what recipes we get. Tonight we are having pork katsu curry, but I'm not sure about the rest of the week. xx
