Meal Planning Mondays

So I am still on my money saving meal plan this week. I am finding the hardest part is keeping the cost down when we need fresh fruit and vegetables. As I have cut down on other snacks in the house, they are munching their way through bags of apples, bananas and snack cucumbers. I guess I should be pleased, but it means that it is impossible to do just one food shop in a week.

Little man also seems to be getting fussier by the minute. He is now refusing to eat bacon or filled pasta. In this heat, I am not a Mummy who wants to cook a different meal for everyone.

My Friday night cheats sweet and sour chicken went down a treat so we will be having that again soon and I will be sharing it on the blog.

Last week  also had some easy to make hot and spicy kebabs that my husband and I enjoyed

Monday: Baguette with cheese and ham. It needs to be quick and simple as the boys are off to karate.

Tuesday: Chicken Fajitas.

Wednesday: Filled pasta - with the plain boring stuff for little man!

Thursday: Freezer food - I need to sort out and run down our freezer so I will see what surprises it holds!

Friday: Chili jacket potatoes. I am shattered by Friday so a quick and easy meal is a must.

Saturday: Middle man has asked for salmon. I am going to be sharing my recipe for this soon, as since I have learnt how to cook salmon properly (aka not totally over cooking it) it has gone from a meal I wasn't fussed about to one I love.

Sunday: We have my FIL over so a BBQ is on the cards. We will be getting out the Stokes Sauces!

What have you got planned for this week?

  1. Fresh fruit and veg is so expensive isn't it but I suppose we should be glad that our kids eat it. My girls are being really fussy too in this weather. Ugh!
    I love the sound of the salmon. I tend not to cook it because it always ends up under or over cooked.

  2. If you have exhausted yourself with laptop-hunt and still can’t find something that fulfills your office and home requirements, then HP 15-Inch FHD laptop, with 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, is your destination.
