Meal Planning – Tuna Mornay




Here is a comment I received this week which tells you the benefits this family found with meal planning:

“This weekly meal planner is fantastic. It is saving us an absolute fortune each week on our grocery bill. Instead of buying things from the supermarket just because we always buy them, I am only purchasing food we will actually eat that week – if tacos aren’t on the menu, I don’t buy taco sauce, taco shells, sour cream and everything else. We have cut back from spending around $400 each week on groceries to just over $200. I can’t wait for the holiday at the end of the year that this saving will pay for!

When meal planning I first look thought the fridge to see what needs using up, then the vegie garden, the pantry, then the supermarket specials.
I very rarely throw out any food. Also because i serve a minimum portion on the plates (eg veg the kids are ‘encouraged’ to eat) then help them selves to fill up, the leftovers are usually good to reuse as they are or to make things like bubble’n’squeak
Also I do things like cooking and freezing any unused carrots BEFORE they go ‘bendy’ and they become ready-made frozen food for future use. In this way it extends their storage life -not that this is ideal – i prefer fresh from the garden where poss buta special is not a bargain if you throw it out!
