Meal Plan Like a Boss - 23rd January

What a week! We did pretty well sticking to last week's Meal Plan, instead of risotto we had an egg fried rice but apart from that we were on plan all week. I spent the weekend in Leeds meeting up with some of my best friends in the world at the HUGE Punky Moms meet up - over 50 rad women in one space, it was intense and amazing. Although as a result of not getting back until late afternoon Sunday, I haven't done my food shop yet.

But here is my plan based on what we have, and what I plan to buy afterwork tomorrow;


Sausage Sandwiches, something easy as I'll be doing the food shop and catching up on housework and washing etc...


Prawn pesto spaghetti - a firm favourite quick mid-week meal, last week I added some lightly roasted kale and capers to mine and I died and went to heaven - my satisfied corpse is typing this.


Cottage Pie - it was really great last week, and we always make enough for lunch the next day too. There is something lovely about having homemade meals for lunch the next day.


Garlic chicken thighs with boiled potatoes and salad. I am on the lookout for more interesting chicken recipes, if anyone has any suggestions, let me know!


Home-baked ham with jacket potatoes and homemade coleslaw - since we had ham and Christmas and loves it we decided to make it a more regular thing, why should we save something so delicious for once a year?

I am aiming for £35 on shopping this week, so I will update this once I've been to Aldi.

What is everyone else eating this week? Don't forget you can grab my free PRINTABLE MEAL PLANNER over on last week's Meal Plan Like a Boss post.

I am also hosting a regular linky for any bloggers who'd like to share their meal plans, I find it so helpful to have them in one place to gain inspiration and build a community. Huge thank you to the wonderful Amy from Crap Dieter who dropped their link last week, those porridge squares looked amazing!

So to take part in the linky;

1. Blog your meal plan and link it using the linky tool below.

2. Feel free to grab a button too, if you fancy.

3. Click on a few other blogs, and give it some love - its nice to share and be nice.
