It's Monday and time for a weekly meal plan. I didn't post one last week as I saved last weeks for this week. We are on honeymoon this week (to a beautiful little log cabin, don't worry Edith's coming too) so we will be eating out a lot or having quick and easy meals (maybe even ready meals(!) shock horror.) It's a break for us so we don't want to be slaving over a oven.

The last meal plan I posted didn't go so well. That week we had takeaway twice. My husband is a bad influence and I have no willpower when it comes to takeaway. We did a lot better last week. Our BBQ plans for the Friday got cancelled so we popped to Morrisions to pick up their pizzas as a bit of a treat instead. This weeks shop came to £23 as we had a lot of meat in the freezer. I did however have to top up the shop with some chicken burgers for £1.50 as we were a little greedy Monday night.


Monday 

Vegetable stir fry, sweet chilli sauce, egg noodles and battered fish on top. (Sounds odd, don't knock it until you've tried it!)

Tuesday
Chicken burgers, salad, sweet chilli sauce with homemade sweet potato fries.


Wednesday

Slow cooker lasange with mushrooms and peppers.


Thursday

"Nacho" wraps. (All the flavour of nachos without nachos, my husband is fussy)

Friday
BBQ - cancelled
Chicken & bacon pizza for me.
Spicy beef, chorizo, bacon and jalapenos for the husband.

  1. This sounds really good! I love making a weekly meal plan, even if we don't quite stick to it, my boyfriend can be such a bad influence too! Stir fry and battered fish is the one. Have the most amazing honey moon! Sounds beautiful. Immy x

    2. Ooooh I shall do a recipe post on them. They were basically all the flavours and components of nachos in a wrap. I then griddle the wrap to make it crispy. I'll get a recipe post for them :)

      It's so hard to say no to takeaways isn't it!

  7. Oh I have a slow cooker and never thought of doing Lasagne! Happy honeymooning! I always think to myself I really need to meal plan as I wonder to the shop with no clue and then make it up most evenings on the whim of what my 5 year old may or may not eat...thank you for linking to #ablogginggoodtime xx

    1. Neither had I until I saw a recipe for it on Pinterest and was amazed by it. It was really good as well. I feel so lost without a list I just can't do it! I'm such a control freak haha.
