MENU PLAN MONDAY

We deviated slightly from this menu plan, but overall it was a good idea to try and plan the last half of the month – I’ll be doing it again next year.

So, on to our menu plan, which I struggled to put together last night as the last thing I felt like thinking about was food! I’m craving lots of veggies, hence the photo above, and at some stage this week I’ll be popping out to get a lot more of them.

The first half of the week is nearly the same as my original plan, Potato and Leek Soup, Sausages etc but the Loaded Nachos are carried over as we didn’t have them yesterday.

Monday: Slow Cooker Easy Leek & Potato Soup
Tuesday: Sausages with Mash and Veggies
- Wednesday: Loaded Nachos (Chili etc)
- Thursday: Chicken Balti & Naan (I use a Balti curry paste)
- Friday: Ham, Green Beans and Potatoes
- Saturday: Vegetable Quiche & Salad
- Sunday: Roasted Chicken (Leftovers) with Veggies

Ok that’s it for today. I’m off to round-up the budget numbers for December in preparation for tomorrow’s post. Have a lovely day.

Our grocery budget is a little higher this month (£280) to account for the extra house guests over the Christmas period. So far I’ve spent £114.78, mainly on week to week items, but I did buy a large chicken for the 25th (I’m cooking it in the slow cooker as we still don’t have an oven!), and a few other bits and pieces that we’ll need…..cheese biscuits, wine, etc ;)

Menu Plan Monday

Yesterday I did a freezer inventory and then tried to make a menu plan for the next 17 days as it’ll make things a lot easier with all the coming and goings we have. So far the main dinners are sorted, but I still need to work out the breakfasts and lunches.

Here’s a list of what I’m starting with in the freezer:

– Large Chicken x 1
– Pork Loin Chops x 6
– Minced Beef (500g) x 1
– Sausages (6) x 2
– Beef Burgers (4) x 1
– Chili portion (for Nacho topping)
– Broccoli 3/4 bag
– Green Beans 3/4 bag
– Corn 3/4 bag
– Stir Fry Veg x 1
– Burger Buns x 4
– English Muffins x 4
– Tortilla Wraps x 3
– Bread x 1
– Bagels x 3

+ we also have 2 cooked chicken breasts and 4 eggs in the fridge.

Menu Plan:

15th: Chicken Fajitas (2)
16th: Pork Loin, Broccoli & Potatoes (2)
17th: Mushroom Omelets + Large Salad (2)
18th: Sausages, Noodles and Stir Fry Veg (2)
19th: BLT’s (2)
20th: Pasta Bolognese (3)
21st: Beef Burgers (3)
22nd: Chicken Taco Bowls (3)
23rd: Pork Loin, Green Beans & Potatoes (3)
24th: Buffet (for 8)
25th: Roast Chicken & Trimmings (for 6)
26th: Out all day
27th: Out/Leftovers
28th: Loaded Nachos (2)
29th: Potato & Leek Soup (3)
30th: Sausages, Noodles and Stir Fry Veg (2)
31st: Buffet (4)

I’ll finish up this post now as it’s getting long. I’ll be back tomorrow with a grocery haul as I’m heading out later to buy all the meat needed for the above^.
