Our weekly meal plan! 6th - 12th May. #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went well. We ate all of the meals that I had planned but there were a couple from Gousto that we weren't too keen on. The Indian Style Spiced Chicken Schnitzel and the Bacon Frijoles Charros. I think I pushed my family way out of their comfort zone when it comes to food. Since we have started getting Gousto boxes we have tried new meals most weeks and there has only been a few meals we haven't been keen on so it was unlucky to get two in one week. It hasn't put us off though, I am playing it a bit safer this week and ordering meals that I know my lot will like.

I am off out again on Wednesday with Becky and her girlfriend to play bingo at the pub so we will be eating out and Stu and Ellie are going to get a Chinese takeaway. I am hoping we win again at the bingo but I think if we do and win big people will start shouting fix. lol Apart from that we don't have much on this week, it's a short one with today being a bank holiday which Ellie is very happy about, she gets a day off college for the rest of us it's just a normal day as it's usually Stu's day off work anyway and Becky works in care so bank holidays don't count for her.

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - We're going to the farm shop for some plants so will pick up some burgers, they do the most amazing pork and apple one's. I might get some stuff to make salad too.
Tuesday - Gousto meal - Creamy Chicken, Bacon & Mushroom Stew.
Wednesday - Eating out for Becky and I and takeaway for Stu and Ellie.
Thursday - Gousto meal - Rich Mushroom Rag├╣ Linguine.
Friday - Gousto meal - Oven Baked Chinese-Style Pork Belly With Rice.
Saturday - Gousto meal - Chip Shop Fish & Chip Burger With Curry Sauce.
Sunday - Sunday lunch out!

What are you eating this week?


  1. After having the most amazing Chinese takeaways when we lived in Virginia, we have not been able to find anything comparable here in Washington. I see disappointing reviews for just about all the places in our area, it's so frustrating. The chip shop fish and chip burger sounds intriguing!

  2. Good luck at Bingo!

    Indian Style Spiced Chicken Schnitzel and Bacon Frijoles Charros sound yummy!! I hope you enjoy the meals you choose this week, at least you have favourites to fall back on :)


  3. We're having friends over for dinner on Wednesday and I just decided today what I'm making! I wish I had planned ahead when I went grocery shopping this weekend but I just could not decide. I finally settled on marinated chicken with plain rice and green beans. Tonight we're trying a new chicken teriyaki casserole and tomorrow night I'm making homemade pizzas.

  4. I hope you won at bingo on Wednesday! With Sam away in Japan this week we have so much food leftover in the fridge. We've been eating the same dinner for days, haha!
