Mealplan and Spending Update


Had a lovely unplanned afternoon out at Glasgow’s West End festival today, so we ended up going for a curry afterwards at Mother India’s Cafe AND it meant I didn’t really have time to do my usual cooking today.  Bit of a frugal fail – worth it though 😉

I’ve slightly rejigged my planned meals because of this – it’s a busy week this week so trying to keep it simple but healthy overall.  I’ve recently joined a Crossfit gym and tend to go on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so I’m planning meals that Dave’ll cook (either from scratch or things I’ve made earlier and frozen) those days.


Sun 8 – out for a curry!
Mon 9 – chorizo and bean stew with rice
Tues 10 arrabiata pasta
Wed 11 – I’m out – not sure what Dave’ll have yet
Thurs 12 – salmon with roasted veg and couscous
Fri 13 turkey burger, wedges and homemade coleslaw
Sat 14 homemade pizzas

Breakfasts – bran flakes with raisins or bacon rolls for Dave; porridge with apple or banana milkshake for me
Lunches – tuna or ham sandwiches for Dave; cottage cheese fritters or lentil soup for me
