Mealplan and Spending Update 29/07


Sorry about the meal plan being a day late – but I did move it to make room for my Charcoal Challenge barbecue post, so it’s a good excuse!

Kept things quite easy this week as I was completely knackered after spending all of Friday night and Saturday morning in the kitchen getting ready for the barbecue.  We’re going to friends’ for dinner on Saturday and had barbecue leftovers on Sunday, so just five meals to plan this week, and I’m off to visit my mum for one night, so just four meals where we’re both here (Dave’s having one of the many burgers left in the freezer that night because we will be eating burgers for quite some time so he might as well get started!).

Did my shopping at Morrisons this week, though I did pick up a couple of things in Tesco when I bought the barbecue – these fell into last month’s spending and everything else fell into August (I set the target for £175 again as it seemed to work quite well last month).

Tues 30 – Dave’s having a burger
