Meal Plan 11th January #2

Today I am back with another meal plan of what we have been having this week. This week is the last which I am doing for two people as Joe is going away with work. for a month. Don’t worry I will be sharing my meal plans as they keep me more organised. This week we have been using a lot of meat which we had already in the freezer. So here are the meals which we are having.

Monday- Veggie Pizza, we have have some mushrooms which really need using up. Combined with the fact that we have some grated cheese, peppers and onions. This means that they are not going to go to waste which is a huge bonus. We purchase two large pizza bases which I think are 10″ for £1.10 in Home Bargains. This is a fraction of the price they are in Asda I think we save around 70p each time. We also had the pizza sauce in the cupboard so this was a very cheap meal for us.

Tuesday- BBQ Cajun Pork Steaks, Jacket Potato and Veg. This is a recipe which I found on Pinterest if you do not follow me I share a lot of recipes over there. I had picked up some pork steaks when they had been reduced in Tesco. I plan on taking these out of the freezer covering them in BBQ and cajun powder. This sounds a simple but really tasty meal to bulk it out I going to add some Jacket Potatoes which we have in. Of course, I need my veg and I am going to stick some on the side.

Wednesday- Beef Tacos, again this is a meal we are having because the beef from new years day is out of date today. We only cooked half and saved the rest but we have no room to freeze it. Instead of having another roast I decided to see what I could find on Pinterest. I found one using the slow cooker meaning I barely have to do anything. I even had all the spices which I needed in at home . If this is nice it is going to be a meal which I can make over and over again.

Thursday- Veg Curry, as you may remember I am trying to do a couple of veggie meals a week. This week we have decided that we are going to try a veg curry, curry something which I adore. I think that this is a meal which I have never had without meat. I can only assume if you do not end up using meat it can only veg. We are going to have this with rice and I presume it is going to be a pretty filling meal all of our veggie meals have been in the past.

Friday- Garlic Kiev, Jacket Potato and Spagetthi Hoops . This is a meal which I have had from hello fresh before. I like it because you can add as much garlic as you want. I usually find that the shop bought ones can usually be a bit dry which is horrible. By using a recipe and making my own I do not have this problem. I am going to serve this jacket potato because I love them so much. I have added some spaghetti hoops to this meal as well as we had some in and I have not had them in the longest time

Saturday- Lasagne and Garlic Bread. This is a meal which I have already cooked and have in the freezer ready to take out. I have done this so that we have something quick and easy when we get back from a day out. I purchased a garlic bread which we are going to share. The lasagne was made it using a recipe which I found online which I am going to share with you one Monday. This is a meal which Jess is will eat it all because she is obsessed with pasta.

Sunday- Chicken Chorizo and Red Pepper Pasta Bake. Again with it been a Sunday it means that Jess is going to be home for food and something she loves is pasta. I had some Chorizo left over from something which I made a couple of weeks ago so I thought why not stick it all together and make a pasta bake. I know this means that we are going to be having pasta two nights in a row but it is completely a different kind of pasta. This meal only cost me the soft cheese because I had everything else it.

Overall this week with shopping it has been a pretty easy week. We have used a lot which has been in which is one of the reasons the shopping came to under £20.

This post is linked up with the lovely Katy. If you do a weekly meal plan why not get involved with the linky for sure it is fun.
