Weekly Meal plan #22

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Guest reader Katie told us that she plans her meals a month at a time. By doing this Katie saves so much money and says she doesn’t have to stress because its all there and planned.

Katie’s plan for this week is full of family favourites. A delicious roast to end the week on a Sunday and quick and easy meals throughout the week to accommodate after-school sports.

MEAL PLANNING TIP

Each week I am going to share one meal planning/grocery budget tip to help you through this process.

SUNDAY

RECIPE: Roast pork with chunky apple and sage sauce

BAKING

Apple and Apricot loaf – I also like to bake each week, so I have included my Apple and Apricot loaf for the week. Its a lovely moist loaf that could be enjoyed on it’s own or as a side to a cuppa.

My plan isn’t quite as complete as usual, because I want to go hunting for good slow cooker recipes to try out. Also, I’m home alone on Tuesday night for dinner (I cannot even tell you how excited I am about that!!!!) so I’m pondering my options. I have some salmon in the freezer, so that may well be the winner.
Monday: Jacket potatoes with leftover Texas Pulled Pork, from Saturday
Tuesday: I’m home alone…maybe baked salmon with green beans & tomatoes, a la Jamie Oliver
Wednesday: Veggie Plate
Thursday: Pasta with veggie sauce
Friday: Fend for Yourself
Weekend: I’m going to go slow cooker hunting and see what I can come up with here. Or it might be homemade pizza, using fresh pizza bases from Aldi – they are delicious.
