Weekly Meal Plan and Shopping List

342D20E5-AD19-4AC7-ACE7-16D2AC3C5E1F

Every Saturday I traipse round our co-op with a trolley, a list and a huffy teenager, in the hope of being able to purchase all the items on said list and not be left feeling deranged by the end of it. Today went pretty smoothly and it was surprisingly quiet for a Saturday in the summer holidays.

I always do a weekly menu and write my list from that. This helps to avoid walking round the shop aimlessly and avoids buying any unnecessary items. I don’t buy biscuits, cakes or puddings. If my hubby was to do the shopping this would be a different matter! I have a shopping list on my phone and add things we run out of during the week.

This Weeks Menu

Saturday

Lunch – beans on toast with grated cheese/avacado on toast

Dinner – Chicken/veg fajitas and salad

Sunday

Lunch – bacon/egg butties

Dinner – roast chicken/roasted cauliflower with roast potatoes, roasted veg, brocolli and carrots

Monday

Lunch – cheese on toast with veg sticks

Dinner – Thai green curry

Tuesday

Lunch – ham/cheese sandwich with veg sticks

Dinner – fish/egg, chips and peas

Wednesday

Lunch – pittas with veg sticks

Dinner – spanish omelette/macaroni cheese and salad

Thursday

Lunch – peanut butter noodles

Dinner – couscous and roasted veg

Friday

Lunch – tuna melts

Dinner – pasta bolognese/veggie version with garlic pittas

(The lunches are for the children because they’re on school holidays and my husband and I are out working).

Snacks

Teenagers are constantly eating so I make sure we have a ready supply of snacks available. They can choose from:

Crisps, apples, watermelon, kiwis, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, bananas, or Greek yoghurt and honey.
