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!

April Grocery Budget* £250 :: Spent so far £66.73 :: Leftover £183.27
Coupons and Points used £0.00

* B is home from university for a few weeks and has given me £50 towards food, so I’ve upped the budget for April.

Pantry Photo + Menu Planning #10

I plan to do a full kitchen tour in April, but for now let’s take a look at how one half of my basic’s stockpile is progressing.

Pantry One

Yay for newly painted shelves!

I  don’t plan to pay the full price for any item that’s on my stockpiling list, so it’s probably going to take me all of 2014 to fill this cupboard. Which is fine. Building it slowly alongside my regular grocery shopping, might still keep me in budget for the year.

Menu Planning

On our menu plan this week:
+ Pizza/ Small Baked Potato / Salad / Corn
+ Pasta Bake / Salad
+ Sausages / Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Carrots / Broccoli / Peas
+ Haddock Fishcakes / Mashed Potato / Peas

Only four meals as I’m off to London for a few days.

What’s on your menu this week?
