Our Weekly Meal Plan!! - #mealplanningmonday

Last week we didn't get a grocery delivery...We didn't need to as the fridge and cupboards were overflowing but it did mean there were no treats like fresh doughnuts and muffins which I really missed. We did manage to run the freezer down a fair bit which makes life a little easier. 

Towards the end of last week Ellie was poorly....She still isn't her normal self and has barely eaten....With her being up every hour during the night for a couple of nights Stu and I were both exhausted. We did however manage to stick to the meal plan as everything was so simple to make...Yesterday we ended up getting food from McDonalds because Ellie wanted a Happy meal....After her not eating we were happy to oblige...She only ate half of it but it was at least something!

This week it's Stu's birthday so we will be getting a takeaway and we are also hopefully having a day out to the beach as long as Ellie is well enough.

During the school holidays I will still be meal planning but not setting what days we're having everything on....It never works for us....

This week on the menu we have:

A takeaway. Stu's choice as it's his birthday....
Something from the chip shop at the beach....
Hot dogs in buns and fries....
Fish finger sandwiches....
A roast chicken dinner....

What are you eating this week?


  1. Oooh fish finger butties & hotdogs!! Not had these in ages, we're having a BBQ at the weekend so I think I might have to get some hotdogs :)

    1. They're nice and easy for me to make...hehehe

  2. I know what you mean about meal planning in the holidays; I still like to plan what I'm making but the days are a bit all over the place. Love the Sloppy Joe idea, haven't seen that one before.
    And of course Fish Finger sandwiches, always a winner!
    Enjoy Stu's birthday treat!

    1. We are all over the place too...I still love the school holidays though.
      Thank you x
