I rushed around the supermarket again this week – I didn’t even do a My Supermarket check before going – and so this grocery haul wasn’t very planned. This week I will do better!

On our menu plan this week:

  • Saturday: Tagliatelle Bolognese
  • Sunday: Chilli, Rice and Tortilla Chips
  • Monday: Sausages, Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Carrots + Broccoli
  • Tuesday: Tuna Salad with Baked Jacket Potatoes
  • Wednesday: Cheese Omelets with Home Made Potato Wedges + leftover Salad
  • Thursday: Pot luck!
  • Friday: Chicken Curry with Rice & Naan

It’s a simple menu plan this week. On Thursday everyone is on a different schedule and so its grab what you can night!
