We are taking inspiration from The Hairy Dieters this week.

Meal Planning Monday – 1st July 2013

Unbelievable. July the 1st already!
I cannot believe how fast time is going these days. And of course it means its just a year and 4 days until my wedding day 🙂

With purse strings tightening that little bit more I am going to completely run down my freezer and cupboards over the next few weeks. If any of you wonderful people know or have any cheap recipes send them my way or direct me to them ;).

Some of the recipes in this meal plan have came from the recipe book below (which I got from a local charity shop for 50p!)


Monday – chicken and sweet corn crepes (we have leftover chicken from our Sunday roast)

Tuesday – it’s our 9 year anniversary!! I will be heading to M&S for their two done for £10, hope they still do it!

Wednesday – I’m at the Bon Jovi concert at Hampden, dinner will be pub food.

Thursday – minced beef and potato pie

Friday – fish and chips

Saturday – cheese, potato and veg layer

Sunday – roast, unsure what yet

Head over to Mrs M for more meal planning ideas x

Meal Planning Monday 20 May


Aaah the meal plan is before us again.
Is it just me or do the weeks seem to be coming in quicker and quicker?
Look it’s almost nearly the end of May, and alas, still no sign of summer :(.

This weeks meal plan comes to you from the dark depths of my freezer.
It’s time I was whittling the food down so I can fill it with BBQ food ready for summer days, well I can live in hope.

Some of options aren’t going to be the healthiest, but I will be cutting the potion size down to, kind of, make up for that. And load my plate with veg or salad.

Here goes 🙂

Baked potato with cheese, tuna and salad.
Homemade chilli and rice.
Butter chicken (pataks sauce)
Pork chops (unsure of how I’m doing them yet)
Chicken and bacon lattice
Homemade steak pie
Chicken quarter pounders with salad

Like I said, it’s a proper freezer raid. And I’ll be a few steps closer to emptying the freezer 🙂

Hop on over to Mrs M for more inspiration.

Meal Plan Monday


This weeks meal plan is based on using up our food.
We are off on our jollies next week, yay!, so just running down what we have in, as I hate waste.

Next week we won’t be having a meal plan but will be back to normal service when we return 🙂

Meatloaf, baked potato and salad

Roast lamb, roast potatoes and veg

Chicken thighs, herby potatoes and salad

A cheeky trip to Pizza Express
