Last weeks meal plan went ok, again apart from the slow cooker lamb curry which as I speak is in the slow cooker! I also have some naan bread, although I didn’t make it, I’m being lazy again, but although I love making bread it can be time consuming and you can buy it ready made so cheaply.
Also we swapped our tacos for Chicken Souvlaki which were really tasty. I didn’t make my own pitta bread though, I bought some flat breads from Sainsburys. I have made pitta bread before though.
Instead of the curry we just had burgers and that’s why the curry is on the list today.
I’m keen to have a go at making some bread in my breadmaker. I bought it a while ago and as with most new kitchen gadgets it got used all the time at first, but now it’s gathering dust. I’m thinking of maybe a nice desert type of bread, chocolate and orange maybe? I’m off to look for a recipe now.
Oh, and the freezer is nearly empty so I’m hoping to defrost it tomorrow 🙂
This weeks Meal Plan
- Saturday – Slow cooker lamb curry
- Sunday – Lasagna
- Monday – Tacos (because we didn’t have them last week)
- Tuesday – chicken and chorizo paella
- Wednesday – chicken and chips
- Thursday – pizza
- Friday – Toad-in-the-hole
I hope it goes well. I’m also hoping to do just one shop this week. Last week I did a shop at Sainsburys, but there were some things I could only get from Morrisons, so I split the shop between the two, taking forever to see which items were cheaper. I believe that Sainsburys is cheaper than Morrisons for so much more!
I still spent less than £200 though…and not one single take out. yippee!
We did go out for my brother’s birthday last Saturday and the bill for six of us was £55, which I think is amazing. We didn’t order desert because my brother had his birthday cake (Which I made.)
