Meal planning saves time, money and space in your head; working out what is for dinner every day and having to shop for it every day is too much for me to handle. Over the last few weeks I have been very poor with my meal planning and it has not made life easy for me. When I meal plan my day flows so much better, I have the food I need and I know what is on the menu. With a 3 year old to feed it is not easy to dash out to the shops and so meal planning is a must.
When I feel I cannot get my head around thinking up another week of recipes, I turn either to my own pre-written meal plans on my blog, or I cheat and use a plan from another blogger. My blog friend Michelle at UtterlyScrummy does a weekly meal plan and with 3 children she chooses similar recipes to me which are healthy and money saving.
This week I’m following her meal plan and here it is:
- Creamy Bacon & Vegetable Pasta
- Chicken Casserole
- Vegetable Burritos
- Macaroni Cheese
- Fish Pie
- Bacon, Cheese & Vegetable Frittata
- Roast Chicken
