We followed our meal plan last week and the biggest success was the prawn curry on Saturday night. I wasn’t sure if the children would like it, but they did so it’s back on the plan for this week and I think we’ll be doing it regularly!
Today we were at Granny’s house for lunch as usual. After a busy afternoon of violin lessons and visiting friends we had a quick supper of eggy bread and marmite sandwiches, followed by stewed apple with yoghurt, oats and elderberry syrup, when we got home. This is the plan for the rest of the week.
Breakfasts – cereal, fruit, yoghurt, porridge, possibly a cooked breakfast on Saturday
Lunches – Armenian soup, tomato soup, bread, cheese and daddy’s homemade peanut butter
Tuesday – sausage casserole, mashed potato and cabbage
Wednesday – sausage casserole leftovers
Thursday – spaghetti with quorn bolognese
Friday – baked potatoes with chorizo and chick pea stew
Saturday – prawn curry and rice
Sunday – roast beef
Puddings – stewed apple, apple crumble, yoghurt, rice pudding
Snacks – fruit, rice cakes, breadsticks, crackers
I’m finding the meal planning really helpful. It definitely saves money, and it’s much nicer than getting to 4.30pm and wondering what to cook!
