Back to work today, have enjoyed my few days off and made me realise how much I miss the days off to potter in the house and cook & bake.
This week I decided to give Aldi a try – Everyone is raving about it, and I have been before, but I have never done my full shop there. I had my full list and they had everything apart from Bubbles’ goats milk, so that’s not too bad. Normally in Tesco my shop is anything between £60 and £80 and this week it was £38. That was with a few random extras in there, so let’s just say – I’ll be back!!
This week as our meal plan for part of the Meal Planning Monday linky, here is our plan:
Ragu – This is a staple that we make monthly and then have once a week
Veal schnitzelI got these from the local butcher at Dobbies, Melville
Meatloaf This was an additional at Aldi – I wanted to get something the boys would eat too and they are so fussy – I picked this up for £1.99 and totally looking forward to it
Roast LambThe butcher at my work, Dobbies, is fab, was chatting to him about what to have for a roast, he suggested leg of lamb – totally looking forward to it
The other nights G and I are out at other things, so on those nights it will be chilli pasta or cheese and beans on toast – not very exciting but they are quick and easy and once you’ve been out doing some exercise you don’t feel like a full on meal.
And that’s us for this week. If you have any suggestions on other things we should try, comment below and let us know, I love hearing what other people have it gives me real inspiration.
