I bought a planner…bit of a plug as I’m an Avon Rep and I got this lovely magnet planner from my Avon Store. It was just what we needed and it also comes with a magnetic pull off shopping list book.
We argue a lot about food in our house, it’s one of our biggest problems. It’s difficult finding food for four adults and three children. Life used to be so much simpler.
Anyway, now I can jot down the meals on this planner and if anyone has an issue they can rub it out and replace it. I don’t mind so long as everyone is happy.
Breakfast is pretty much the same every day, a choice of toast, crumpets, croissants or cereal. Whatever they fancy, they generally get it themselves. The lunch section on the planner will probably only be used when the kids are off school.
Then there is a snack section on the planner, which will be handy to keep a track of the goodies that can be all eaten in one day if I’m not careful. Seriously, I can have doughnuts, cakes, biscuits, crisps etc and they’ll all be eaten within a day, or maybe two.
Anyway, let’s get on to this weeks meal Plan.
Weekly Meal Plan
- Saturday – Curry (usually from a jar!)
- Sunday – Lamb roast dinner
- Monday – pies and mash (or roasters)
- Tuesday – chorizo and Mozzarella Gnocchi Bake
- Wednesday – fajitas
- Thursday – Brinner (fry up)
- Friday – Something light as we are going out (pizza maybe?)
With the option of wiping off and swapping around on the planner I’m sure this will be happening a lot. I always have a back up food in the freezer for those days. It’s generally chicken or fish and chips!

Great meal plan. I like the sound of the chorizo and Mozzarella Gnocchi Bake x
Chorizo & mozzarella gnocchi bake sounds really yummy, will definitely give that recipe a try :o)
Planning for a family can be complicated. New planner is a great idea for meals. Can I come over Sunday for lamb roast please? #MMBC
Is there anything better than Brinner? I think not! My kids think it’s the biggest treat ever when I tell them we are having a cooked breakfast for dinner!
