It’s half term this week (yay!) so our weekly meal plan is going to incorporate the kids helping in the kitchen as much as possible. I often get the kids involved in making our meals as I find they are more likely to eat them. Not only that but it’s also teaching them a valuable skill for when they grow up.
Our weekly meal plan – 10th February 2018
Monday – Stir fry, using leftover pork (for the rest of the family), any veg we have in the fridge/freezer and noodles from the pantry. I’ll have this meat free.
Tuesday – Pancakes, it’s pancake day so we will be having pancakes. We might just have lots of sweet pancakes or I might make a savoury topping with things I can find already in the kitchen.
Wednesday – Curry, using up the leftover roast pork. I have a portion of my veggie curry in the freezer which I’ll defrost and heat up.
Thursday – Pasta with tomato and veggie sauce. A nice simple meal.
Friday – Freezer food, eating up what we already have in the fridge and freezer. This gives us an opportunity to eat up any leftovers from the week and make some extra freezer space.
Saturday – Calzone, Katy has inspired this one! I’ve never made it before so I will be using her recipe.
Sunday – Sausage and mash, this is a meal we all love. I have Linda McCartney sausages while the rest of the family have regular sausages.
Leftover veggie curry 🍛 made in the slow cooker Chop up any leftover veg you have (I used onions, courgette, pepper, sweet potato🍠 and a few mushrooms) and throw them in your slow cooker. Add a tin of chopped tomatoes 🍅 Throw in a couple of teaspoons of garam masala Mix together and turn the slow cooker on high 6 hours or low 4 hours. Cook rice to packet instructions then plate up with some posh coriander 🌿 to make it look fancy 😜 #fancyfood #frugalfood #frugalfoodie #frugalvegan #curryandrice #coriander #veganuary2018 #veganfood #foodshare #foodporn #foodphotography #foodblogger #foodie #buzzfeedfood #frugalliving #foodlover #foodstyle #foodstagram #foodpassion #foodinsta #foodinspo #frugalmeals #mealprepideas #mealplanning #mealshare #cheapmeals #cheapfood #mealplan #mealplans #quickhealthymeals
