Meal Planning and Getting Back on Track

If you follow me over on Instagram or have read my previous blog post then you'll know that I have been a bit out of sorts of late. Blood test results have explained why I've been feeling so tired, I have an appointment with my consultant this week to discuss what else we can do to ease the pain in my back and legs due to my disability and with all the building work on the home straight(fingers crossed) I'm feeling a lot more positive....the bright weather is definitely a help too.

That said, one thing that I find always helps keep me feeling on top of things and in control are lists and meal plans. Meal plans are a life saver for our family, they mean we know what we need to buy when we go shopping instead of picking up loads of unnecessary items, can organise meals around the kids activities, meetings, parents evenings etc and it means that we don't have to waste money on last minute take-aways.

So below and keeping us on track this week is our meal plan.

Chicken and mushroom curry with rice, poppadoms, naan bread and salad.
(made with leftover roast chicken)

Cottage pie, vegetables and yorkshire puds

Lamb chops, cous cous and roasted veg

Fajitas, potato wedges, onion rings and corn on the cob

Pasta salad - we'll use the leftover meat from the fajitas

Pizza, breaded mushrooms, dough balls and salad

Roast beef with all the trimmings

That's what's on or menu for the coming week. Sometimes I lack inspiration when meal planning so I put together a post with over 20 meal ideas. I'd love you to comment some of your favourite meal ideas on that post or below.

I'm linking this post up with the Meal Planning Linky over on the lovely Katy Kicker's blog where there will b loads more inspiration, so don't forget to pop over and take a look.

What's on your menu for this week?
