So here goes my first blog:
I've decided to try and embrace blogs and twitter #mealplanningmonday to try and help save money by way of meal planning. During January 2014 I saved all receipts and have calculated that I spent over £370 on food last month. Ridiculous. I've figured if I just spend some time each week meal planning then I'll easily cut that down by £100.
My target during my first month is to get it to £200!
So here goes, my first meal plan of 2014. (for 2 adults and 2 kids, 9 & 6)
Monday: chicken breasts and peppercorn sauce with stir fried veg(me)/roasted peppers(him)/salad(them). Baked potatoes. (kids will have Richmond mini meatballs from the freezer)
Tuesday: Salmon fillets with Kwans Kitchen black bean & garlic sauce stuff on top, served with rice and stir fried veg.
Wednesday: Enchiladas and salad
Thursday: Pasta with tomato sauce with bacon, peppers, left over hotdogs
Friday: Pizza (ASDA)
Saturday: unknown as yet as I'm away so need to think of something easy for Him to cook for Them.
Sunday: Chilli and rice (from freezer)
