Weekly Meal Plan #5

Weekly Meal Plan Under £30
Meal planning this week came pretty easy. It's odd how some weeks it takes forever and other weeks I just can't think of what to make. I've had few recipe I've wanted to make for a while and a couple that I want to photograph this week as they are so tasty I've got to share them.

We shopped in Morrisons once again. They did have a few things out of stock so we had to buy the more expensive version. This weeks shop came to £30.68. A whole 68p over budget. We didn't need nappies and wipes this week as we are stocked up but we did buy a few cleaning products, ingredients for food writing work and baby food (handy for putting in the changing bag!). I've also included bits for lunch and breakfasts which I don't list on here and some meatballs I've put in the freezer for next week, they were £1 for 12 pork meatballs and I couldn't resist.

I did wonder if you guys might like to see ingredients for each meal, as well as store cupboard ingredients I have used too. Please let me know in the comments. I can also produce a printable shopping list to make meal planning even easier.

Pork bagel burgers with homemade chips. 

Nacho wraps. (recipe coming soon)

Slow cooker turkey curry (peppers, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes) with basmati rice. 

Pizza margherita toasties with homemade wedges and veggies.

Cheats carbonara (mushrooms, spinach, peas) with homemade bread.

What are you eating this week?

  1. I'm really loving these meal plan posts. I actually looked back at yours at the weekend when planning our meals for the week :)

  2. I really wish I was better at meal planning! Your skills at sticking to a budget are impressive. That's something else I wish I was better at! In fact, I should probably start by setting a budget to begin with! Having just returned from a holiday my pathetic meal planning was even worse than normal. So this week, it's mostly 'whatever I find in the freezer'! #bigpinklink

  3. This is making me so hungry! I haven't had my tea yet and I'm starving. I could go for a turkey curry now x #bigpinklink

  4. These all sound absolutely delicious and I am in awe of how little you have spent to achieve such a lovely meal plan. I've been wanting to start meal planning and reading this has solidified that want to a need. Thank you for linking to #bigpinklink x

  5. I'm really looking forward to the nacho wraps recipe! #TwinklyTuesday

  6. I love this list, I'm rubbish at think of what to cook. A plan makes the day run much more smoothly, and so cheap too!


  7. It's really interesting to see what other people eat for dinner every day! I should share my weekly plan on my blog too. My meals are mostly vegetarian with fish and seafood on a plate twice a week. I have for example miso soup with prawns & mushrooms (recipe here: http://www.behealthynow.co.uk/healthy-meals/shiitake-mushroom-and-prawn-miso-soup/), also egg salad which is so quick to make (http://www.behealthynow.co.uk/healthy-meals/crunchy-egg-salad-with-avocado/), etc.

  8. This is good timing, I was just talking to my son about sitting down tomorrow and coming up with a food plan for the next week as this past couple of weeks has been horrendous last minute freezer raiding.

  9. I so get you on the sometimes it just takes forever, your meals sound lovely. I love a carbonara style meal you can add so many bits to it. I will look out for your weekly plans #picknmix

  10. We meal plan it definitely makes a difference to time and money. Looking forward to your nacho wrap recipe. Thanks for linking to #picknmix
