I’ve mentioned before that we only do one big food shop a month. I love cooking but hate the time spent making shopping lists or being in grocery stores. And it works for us. Each time we cook, we make double so we have another meal for either the next day or to pop in the freezer for the busier ones. We only pop out for top ups of bread, milk and fruit.
So this is our meal plan. We don’t assign days, we just pick one from the list on the fridge as we go along. I try to cook 90% of the time from fresh (or a home made meal from the freezer) and keep them as either slow cooker meals I can pop on in the morning after the nursery run or dishes that are ready in under 30 minutes because time always seems to be running away lately! I’ve linked the recipes I can, but just comment below if you need one that isn’t linked and I’ll let you know.
I hope it gives you a little meal inspo as I love seeing these lists!
Allotment vegetable pizza (on wholemeal wraps instead of pizza base)
Vegetable lasagne and salad
Aubergine balti and peas pilau rice
Vegetarian sausages with mash (we like the Linda McCartney versions)
Carrot and lentil soup
Red cooked chicken
