Meal Planning Monday

Posted by


So I’ve not written a meal planning post for a few weeks now, because frankly I haven’t had the time.

But it does keep us on track more when it comes to waste, both food and financial.

This week we’ll be having:


Quorn chilli & rice

Lasagne & garlic bread

Lamb curry & rice

Tuna Pasta Bake

Sausage casserole

Butternut Squash Risotto

Cheese & onion pie and chips


Rice pudding

Chocolate mousse and strawberries

Blueberries and ice-cream

Cake and custard

Yorkshires with ice-cream and syrup

Jam roly poly

Strawberry cheesecake

Once I ease myself back into regular meal planning, I want to look at reducing the cost of our shopping. Our weekly spend seems to be increasing week on week and I’m sure there are ways we can cut down.

I think it would probably be cheaper to buy some ready made meals but for the most part I like to cook fresh food each day, so I’d rather avoid processed anything if I can.

If you have any tips on keeping food costs down please do share them in the comments. I would also love it if you would share your favourite family meal ideas!

I’m linking this post to Meal Planning Monday where you can find meal planning inspiration with Katy and Naomi, and everyone else who links up!


  1. Thanks so much for linking up. I think it’s hard to cook from scratch all the time – we have some prepared food like fishcakes or prepared veg – but it’s definitely cheaper. Ready meals just don’t fill you up! We haven’t had sausage casserole for ages, I’m going to add that into my meal plans for this month.
