Meal Planning Monday: the wildly organised edition
Now of course, writing this does tempt fate hugely, but I do feel like I owe myself a little boast - it's Wednesday, 6pm and I've just done our meal plan and online shop for next week. Oh yes, I'm that organised.
I mentioned last week about the belt tightening that's going on to fund the wedding and the house redecoration - one of the things I've always done to help with this is to put our weekly shop through mysupermarket.com to make sure we go wherever is cheapest. However, try as I might I never seem to be able to make the total cost at the till come out the same as what I'd planned. Avoidance of temptation to 'just add' must be key, so this week I did the same and have pressed the button to checkout with Sainsburys.
This week is ours to get back to normal. Both Brownie and Guide terms kick off properly and M and I are both working around and about a fair bit.
Breakfasts: Either vanilla porridge or fruit toast or a smoothie for me.
Lunches: I've got the dhaal I made up the other week which is in the freezer happily waiting to be defrosted and heated up.
Saturday - Roast chicken, roast potatoes, stuffing and veggies
Sunday - Leftover roast chicken with baked potatoes and veggies
Monday - Chicken and mushroom risotto
Tuesday - leftovers
Wednesday - M is eating elsewhere so fish and greens for me
Thursday - Brownie night so pizza from the freezer
Friday - A lazy night for me, the standby chicken kiev with sweet potato chips and veggies.
Nothing overly exciting, but a week that helps us to stay on budget and fed - what more could you ask for? If my brain reminds me, I'll be linking up with Mrs M over at At Home with Mrs M... be sure to pop over there for inspiration with other meal plans.
