Meal Planning Monday #9

We've had an impromptu visit to family this weekend (but still managed to have a Chinese on Saturday night) and so for once I'm actually planning on a Monday, as opposed to a Sunday when I normally do it.

My plan this week involves using up food already in the house because we're running out of freezer/cupboard space and that's ridiculous. We've also got the BT phone bill due next week, and The Boy's birthday plus a holiday and Britmums Live next month, so I'm now on an economy drive. Nothing apart from bread and milk will be purchased this week!

  • Sunday: away
  • Monday: Quorn escalope with gruyere cheese/chicken and mushroom pie (freezer food), potato wedges and peas.
  • Tuesday: Meatballs and spaghetti (yes I know I've missed out the 'a' in spaghetti).
  • Wednesday (late work night): Cheese & vegetable pasties, potato wedges and salad.
  • Thursday:Pasta and vegetable salad.
  • Friday: Chinese! (Of course!)
  • Saturday: Risotto and ciabatta bread (mix in cupboard). I think I'm going to do a primaverdi and parmesan version to try and welcome in Spring and Summer. I may even partake of Pimm's alongside it.

There you go, hardly inspiring but it will work for me.

    What a great idea – I don't really know what is in my freezer anymore and have been putting off a clear out. Thanks to your blog I have decided to dig deep once LO is in bed tonight. Wish me luck!

    I hadnt noticed the misspelt spaghetti til you said lol.
    Considering that's freezer and cupboard food it all sounds lovely.
    We used to always have takeaway Friday or sat but the scales tell me im not allowed! x

    Great meal plan – we often have freezer/cupboard weeks when we only buy breakfast/lunch stuff. Makes such a difference! Have a good week x

    I REALLY need to do this. I used to be very good, even did my couponing for hours. I saved almost $200 in one shopping trip (2/3 of my purchase!) I am going to start to do this next week as we have nothing in the fridge or freezer at the minute. 🙂
