I thought I would give you an example of a weeks menu plan and how I feed us all. I do a main shop on a Thursday and base my weeks menu plan round our Sunday Dinner (chicken, Mince, Beef, or Ham). This week it will be chicken.
Fish, oven chips and mussy peas. I make sure I buy frozen cod or haddock fillets when they are on offer, plus Aldi do a very good fillet. I buy Aldi oven chips at 99p a bag and soak my own mushy peas and freeze them in batches.
Home made burgers and wedges (sweet potato this week as 39p a bag in Aldi)
Dinner – Home made pizza, with home made sauce and mozzarella and salami, plus veg. Garlic dough balls or garlic pizza bread.
Lunch – poached egg on muffins Dinner – Roast chicken, roast potatoes, home made Yorkshire puddings and vegetables plus we have parsnips, sprouts and leeks in the garden.
Lunch – Leftovers from Sunday Dinner
Dinner – Chicken and vegetable Curry, rice and Naan (I strip the carcass on Sunday night and pop in the slow cooker)
Lunch – Leftover curry and a jacket (me), Toasty (mini)
Dinner – Tuesday Chicken and Ham risotto with Vegetables (I use the chicken stock and leftover chicken)
Spaghetti on Toast
Sausage Casserole – 2 packs of sausages , carrots, leeks and parsnips from the garden and Mash
Lunch – Leftovers
Dinner – Jacket potatoes with Beans and Cheese
