After a long break, I’ve decided to go back to meal planning each week. I read a fabulous post by The Joy of Five, and she wrote about how she was starting to budget for Christmas, and the best ways to make your food go further,and it got me thinking that I need to start meal planning again!
The meals for the week are below, but I should add there’s lots of fruit and vegetables which either get served with the meals or as a snack. We’ve also got homemade cakes and ice cream (yes homemade ice cream!) to devour this week! A picnic lunch is one we’re having on the move and usually combines different foods – think a ploughman’s in a lunchbox format. Breakfasts are cereal or porridge depending on whether the children are ravenous or not!
Lunch: Egg on Toast
Dinner: lasagna (I haven’t made this in years..so wish me luck!)
Lunch: Cheese Scones
Dinner: Beans on Toast (It’s Football training night)
Dinner: Homemade Fishcakes and vegetables
Lunch: Picnic lunch
Lunch: Picnic Lunch
Dinner: Fried Rice
Lunch: Pizza (It’s a busy sporting day..)
Dinner: Fish, chips and peas.
Dinner: Grilled Halloumi, Sweet Potato Fries, roasted vegetables.
We might swap the meals around a little bit, but I do like having the plan as it makes shopping easier!
