Mealplan and Spending Update 17/11


A small shop today (we got it delivered from Asda), leaving us with just a shade under £25 to do until the 25th – hopefully just enough for the next week’s shopping.  This week, the plan is to try and use up some stuff that’s been hanging around the freezer a while – the chicken drumsticks, a few bits of fish, the veggie chilli (which is already made up, the mince for the burgers.


Sun 17 – spicy chicken drumsticks with sweetcorn salsa, spicy wedges and salad

Mon 18 – vegetable curries with rice and naan

Tues 19 – fish pie

Wed 20 veggie chilli with baked potatoes and salad

Thurs 21 mac and cheese with broccoli

Fri 22 – having friends round so will just have pizza

Sat 23 – beefburger for Dave, turkey burger for me, with chips and salad
