After many requests we have decided to take part in Meal Planning Monday again. We never stopped meal planning as it is a great way to save money and stop waste but we did stop blogging about it.
This is what we are having this week:
We write it on the blackboard in the kitchen as we find we stick to it better.
The chicken and mushroom pie is made from left over roast chicken which we has yesterday. We are cheating with ready made puff pastry but it makes life a little easier.
Sausage tray bake it a really simple one pot dish. Just throw sausages, new potatoes and whatever veg you fancy in a baking tray, a drizzle of oil and some herbs and cook for 30 minutes. This week we are having carrots, butter nut squash and sweet potato.
The turkey meatballs are made using the same recipe as our Pork Meatballs but we just use turkey mince instead.
The kids love to help make the meatballs and the chicken nuggets. The chicken nuggets are a total bargain this week thanks to the Lidl half price weekend offers, a pack of diced chicken was just £1.27! Yes the freezer is filled.
We buy the pizza bases and then top them with our own toppings.
I love a good casserole and I have some chicken thighs in the freezer which will be perfect in this and we will make some herby dumplings to go on top.
Pork takes very well to slow cooking so I pop mine in the slow cooker with a bit of water in the bottom and some bay leaves and leave to cook all day. I buy a large joint so I can use it make two meals.
