It's great to be back to meal planning. Last week we treated ourselves and bought easy convenience food, luxuries and wine! Our weekly shop for the lodge came to £75! Eeeeeekkkkkkk. That's more than double our normal shop. It was great to treat ourselves though but we are well and truly back to healthier eating and staying on budget.

This week is slightly different to our usual week as my husbands son is staying with us for the week. He's a bit of a fussy eater, although we're not changing how we eat so we've picked things we know he will happily eat.

I'm not used to cooking for someone who doesn't have a big appetite but it does mean that we don't really have to increase our portion sizes that much as I do tend to overcook, I blame my mum for this trait!

This weeks shop (not including nappies and wipes) came to just over £28, we shopped in Morrisons this week, which for a family of four is not bad going at all. Edith will have a small, unseasoned portion of the meal we have.


Wholemeal pitta pizzas (toppings - bacon, pineapple, mushrooms, sweetcorn, peppers, cheddar and mozzarella) with salad.


Toad in the hole, roast potatoes, peas and gravy.


Fish finger wraps with couscous.


Homemade meatballs with spaghetti in tomato sauce.


BBQ (hopefully)

I would love to know what are you eating this week?

  1. You've given me a few meal ideas here, thank you :) x #twinklytuesday

  2. I like reading other families' food menus - gives me a few other ideas. So thanks for sharing yours. Fish finger wraps - that's an idea to try! This week, we had bolognaise, cheese toasties, baked salmon (which was on sale!) and tonight, will be beef stroganoff. Thanks for linking with #bigpinklink

    1. Me too, I'm so nosey. Ooooh they all sound delicious!

  3. I could have sworn I had commented on here. Anyways, meal planning always starts great for me and goes downhill quickly throughout the week. Your planning is simple and sounds lovely. #bigpinklink

    1. Haha, blogger has a habit of not posting. We've gone a little off track with a takeaway tonight. Ooops.
