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 and often end up stressing each day about what to cook. Not 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
Friday: fish and chips (chicken)
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.
