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.
Saturday – Wing it. SUCCESS obvo.
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.
