Meal planning recap

Happy Sunday!

How’s your week been?  This week’s been a mixed bag for us but mostly good.  And the meal planning has gone excellently.  We’ve even saved money this week… by saved I mean I kept comfortably within budget.  Let’s recap.

Sunday – 40 Clove Chickpeas and Broccoli, with brown rice (from Appetite for Reduction) SUCCESS

Monday – Bean & Veg Stew, with quinoa FAIL (Tom was out, I just had cereal instead)

Tuesday – Pasta & Veg with White Sauce from Fat Free Vegan SUCCESS, though I doubt I’ll make it again.


Wednesday – Thai Chickpea & Veg Curry SUCCESS

Thursday – Fajitas SEMI SUCCESS

Friday – Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes FAIL

Thursday I made roast potatoes with salad and veggie sausages since we had potatoes to use up,


so we had the Fajitas on Friday instead.

Meal planning definitely helped with keeping within our food budget.  And even though I did deviate from it sometimes, I made sure my doing so wasn’t going to cost us any more money.  I also made an effort to walk to our local shops to buy ingredients as and when we needed them.  That way I found it easier to control what I was buying, and I got some exercise in.  Win, win!

Hope you’ve had a good weekend.  I’ll be back some time soon with this week’s meal plan.
