This week I am joining in with Katy Kicker and her Meal Planning Linky. I’m hoping to make this a regular thing as I’m hopeless at sticking to making meal plans ot only that but my shopping habits have become a mess. I’m spending more than £200 a week on food and we are still turning to take outs at least once a week. I NEED HELP!
So, I’m giving this a lot of thought and writing down my plan before I do my online shop. Then I’ll revisit next week and see if it has helped. I’m not expecting miracles straight away, but hopefully I’ll get there eventually.
- Monday: fajita pasta bake
- Tuesday: lasagne for boys, scallop tagliatelle for girls
- Wednesday: Chicken and Chorizo Paella
- Thursday: quiche
- Friday: fish and chips (chicken)
- Saturday: Curry
- Sunday: roast dinner
The fajita pasta bake is a fairly new discovery that we love. I can’t remember where I first saw it now. It’s just like making fajitas but instead of putting the filling into wraps you put them into cooked pasta.
The Chicken and chorizo paella is a big favourite too. My husband is allergic to fish and sea food so it’s a paella he can enjoy. It’s my husband who will have chicken instead of fish on Friday too.
We haven’t had quiche for a while, the boys are easy and will share any shop bought one. I generally make one from scratch for the girls, but I’ve found a ‘free from’ one that we like.
I may change the curry on Saturday as we seem to have it a lot and we’re getting a bit bored. But hopefully the rest of the week will go to plan.
