Our weekly meal plan this week will be easy and simple meals that I can pop in the slow cooker and forget about until tea time.
our weekly meal plan – 3rd February 2018
Now that Vegnuary has finished I’ve decided that I’m going to reduce the amount of animal products I buy. At the moment while my family still eat meat and other animal products it’s very difficult to completely avoid them in my diet. So I figured that just reducing animal products by bulking things out with veg for now is a more realistic way to do it for us.
Monday – Beef stew made in the slow cooker with mash or dumplings. I found some braising steak yellow stickered during the week so I plan to use this.
Tuesday – Spaghetti Bolognaise, again cooked in the slow cooker and served with spaghetti and some ciabatta bread. I find it so much easier cooking my bolognaise in the slow cooker because when it comes to tea time all I have to do is cook spaghetti.
Wednesday – ‘Homemade’ fish and chips. Okay not so homemade but not takeaway fish and chips, I have some frozen fish in the freezer to eat.
Thursday – Sausages, mash and veggies.
Friday – Freezer food/ leftovers.
Saturday – Pizza. This is a meal that the kids always eat because they always get involved with cooking them. We have a bulk load of flour to use so we will most likely make our own.
Sunday – Roast shoulder of pork with roast potatoes and veggies. This was another of my yellow sticker finds this week, it’s only a small joint enough for 2 days worth of meals though. I will use the rest in another recipe next week.
