Well meal planning Monday with a new born is harder then anticipated. Zoe has been going through a bit of a growth spurt which basically means she hates being anywhere but in my arms and is a feeding machine! So last week there was a take-away and lots of improvised freezer meals.
I still want to give meal planning a try though, having a plan helps me feel in control and efficient. Also, it means I plan my shopping list and save money, rather than just buying cheddar biscuits and bags of giant cadbury’s buttons.
So here we go…
I’m going to Asda with my sister after work to do my weekly shop, so I won’t have lots of time to cook, I will probably just
pick something up that is easy like a fresh pizza and salad.
Twice baked potatoes with corned beef and salad.
Midweek Roast Chicken – because I am a rebel.
Leftover Roast Chicken Pie.
Chilli and brown rice
Paprika Chicken with risotto (its a packet risotto from Aldi which we love)
Epic bacon sandwiches – Paul makes the best bacon sandwiches in the world, we tend to have them at midday and then they fill us up until tea time.
We have quite a few plans this week, meeting with friends for cake, taster sessions of baby classes, baby and toddler group but I am hopeful that having plans and structure to my day will help me be more organised. Wish me luck!
I have carefully planned my shopping list and according to Asda online, if I stick to my list it will be £45.05 (If only I could curb my Dolce Gusto addiction it would be £35.05.)
