Welcome to my very first Meal Planning Monday post!
Martin and my Mum were both ripping me about my meal planning the other day but I find it so much easier to plan the week ahead, the shopping, the family budget, and my diet so much better when I have a plan for the week.
At the weekend I have a look in the fridge, freezer and cupboards to see what we have and what needs used up. Then I use my planner and post it notes to allocate meals for the week ahead. We tend to have the same meals regularly so using the post its means that I don't have to keep writing the same meals out again and again but it also means that I can move the meals around. So if Martin doesn't fancy pasta one night I can swap it for another meal that I have planned.
I would like to do a more in depth post about my meal planning so I'll leave it like this for now. Here is the plan for this week:
Monday: Roast dinner (we didn't have enough time to have this yesterday!)
Tuesday: Pizza topped chicken/KFC chicken with chips
Wednesday: Chicken and chorizo paella
Thursday: Baked fish and vegetables
Friday: Out for dinner - it's my Mum's 60th birthday!
Sunday: Roast dinner with meat from the freezer
