Meal Planning Monday


I can’t believe we are in the last week of March!
The weeks are flying by.

This weeks meal plan is a mix of Rosemary Connolly and my own recipes.

We are still on a budget, as many of us are, and by having a weekly meal plan I have noticed we are saving money and time.
I work out my meal plan on the Saturday, for the following week, and do my shop on the Sunday.
Because I am not walking around the supermarket wondering what to have for dinner, I have my list and I stick to it. Which is sometimes hard! I used to pick up bargains because they were bargains not because I needed them!

Here’s this weeks meals:

Chicken, leek and tomato risotto. This is a first time for me. Hope it tastes as good as it sounds.

Gammon steak, poached egg and roast potatoes.
A simple classic.

Smoked haddock fish cakes.
Homemade of course 🙂

Herby meatloaf
Everyone loves this!


Homemade pizza
It’s the mini mans birthday on the Sunday and his wee pals are coming round to make pizza

Mini mans birthday. Going to do a nice family roast.

As always, will blog recipe once we have made it.

Head over to Mrs M for more inspiration



  1. Meal planning is great….I’ve been doing it a few months now and have noticed we’re not spending as much on the food shop too….
    Good luck with the risotto….It sounds delicious & Happy birthday to your little one 😀

    1. It’s fab isn’t it!
      When I don’t do a meal plan I definitely notice a difference.
      Will be doing a blog about the recipes in it next week.
      Thanks. I can’t believe my mini man will be 4
