Our weekly meal plan! 10th - 16th June! #MealPlanningMonday

Our weekly meal plan

Last weeks meal plan went well. We ate everything apart from the Sausage, apple and potato one-pan roast, we ended up having sausages, mash and baked beans. It was one of those days where we just wanted some comfort food.

I got the Gousto box delivered on Saturday which was a drama in it's self. The delivery guy tried to hand me a package which was not my Gousto box, I could see the red Gousto box in his van. He tried to tell me I was wrong until he checked his little scanner thing. Oops. Then when I was unpacking it I realised that there were 2 sausages were missing. It's the first time something has been missing from my box. If it had been something like a pepper or tomato I wouldn't have been bothered but the sausages were the main part of our meal on Saturday evening. I went on the website, said they were missing and was issued with a £3 voucher which I think is fair.

Why have I never made battered sausages before? I did on Saturday night and they were so good, I would say even better than from the chip shop! I will be making them again in the future.

We have decided for the rest of the month we won't be eating out or getting takeaways! (Apart from Father's Day). Becky and I won't even be going to Bingo, partly to save money but mostly because there will be football on with the Euro's starting. heheheh We have a few things happening in July and of course they cost money. If we save now we can really enjoy next month. 

On the menu this week we have:

Monday - Stu's night to cook and he is making us pie, from the freezer, mashed potato and peas. I made plenty of mash yesterday so he doesn't have to.
Tuesday - Gousto meal - Spiced Black Pudding Scotch Egg With Chips And Salad. We have had this before and we loved it! The black pudding comes mixed with the sausage meat and it is delicious!
Wednesday - Gousto meal - Sweet & Sour Pork Meatballs With Rice.
Thursday - Gousto meal - Smoky BBQ Chicken With Crispy Potatoes And Pepper & Corn Salad.
Friday - Pizza! Shop bought one's out of the freezer.
Saturday - Gousto meal - Sticky Honey Mustard Posh Dogs With Chips.
Sunday - Father's Day and we're going out for a meal and might convince my dad to come too.

What are you eating this week?


  1. Isn't it wonderful having someone to help with meals?! I love that you take turns cooking. I used to ask my boys to do this kind of thing all the time when they were younger, mainly to teach them how to be responsible for a meal and how to safely cook. I love cooking, though, and now that there's so few of us, I never mind making things. I hope you have a great Monday, my friend!

  2. I love that now that we're getting summer type weather I can rely on my husband more on the weekend for cooking and just have to make up some sides. It's a relief not to have to cook ALL the meals. We're hoping to eat at home the rest of the month too and I'm trying to plan ahead as much as I can. It sounds like you have a delicious week planned.

  3. My husband and son are counting on watching a lot of the Euro's too, though I am in the middle of watching the Israeli version of 'Strictly', so we will be fighting over the TV!

  4. How do you cook battered sausages? Do you use a deep fryer (Mum always had a chip pan but I'm not sure they are still a thing?) or some other method?

    1. Just in the frying pan with a big glug of oil. I always thought they had to be deep fried.
      We still have a chip pan, just a pan with oil in and the mesh basket. We don't use it often but it's great for home made chips or onion rings.
