I'm so pleased with how our frugal living is going. Thanks to meal planning, my shopping, including bits picked up during the week, is coming in under £60 a week!
That's feeding a family of 5, including a teenager and a tween that is never full. Add to that, little A eats his own food, as his diet is incredibly limited, thanks to his autism.
I have paid all my bills, my mortgage, and there is food on the table. I think things will be a lot different when the mister goes back to work, as we've realised just how much money we've been wasting.
Anyway, onto this weeks meal plan:
Monday: Fry Up, or as Mama Owl calls it, Brinner. Basically, everything you have in a cooked breakfast, but for dinner. Traditionally we call it a fry up, but it's all grilled here, can't stand all that grease!
Tuesday: Corned Beef Pie. My boys love a pie, so I make it myself to cut down on the fat intake. Probably served with Veg or beans.
Wednesday: Parmesan Chicken. Last time I had this, a few people commented on trying it themselves. It's a big hit here, with home made wedges.
Thursday: Spaghetti Bolognese. This is at my request, I love to fill it with extra lean mince and tons of veg, yummy.
Friday: Pork chops, veg and Gravy. A firm family favourite.
Saturday: Either Takeaway or Home made Pizza. As we are
abandoning leaving the children for a couple of days, I thought it would be a treat, before we go.
Sunday: dinner out for the boys, with their Nan, Travel Snacks for me and Mr.Ojo, on route to London.
I won't be doing a meal plan next week, as I'm away. I've given my blog over to others, for guest posts. So far I have 2 beautiful posts, one anonymous. Please show them your support, when they go live.
Hope you're all having a lovely week. As always, pop along to Mrs.M for more ideas.
