Mealplan 20/07

Back from a lovely but brief weekend away in Argyll, where, after staying with Dave’s mum on Friday night, we attended a wedding on the beach – in fact standing barefoot in the sea in the pouring rain – a really unique and lovely day 🙂

I’ve not been keeping an exact record of spends this month – though looking at my bank statements shows that we have been more or less in budget – so I’ll not bother adding up the spending updates until next month’s budget comes in. Here’s this week’s mealplan and what I bought though:



Sun 20 – macaroni cheese with broccoli, mushrooms and tomatoes
Mon 21 – sweet potato, onion and cheese frittata with salad
Tues 22 – breaded cod, homemade chips, peas and broccoli
Wed 23 – turkey meatballs with a tomato sauce, rice and veg
Thurs 24 – chicken and spaghetti in a puttanesca sauce
Fri 25 – pork and apple burgers with corn on the cob and salad
Sat 26 – chickpea and cauliflower curry with rice

What I bought (£28.74)

I spent £27.74 in Morrisons today and a further £1 in my local Tesco garage (because I didn’t realise I was out of pasta when I did the shopping and didn’t really want mac and cheese made with spaghetti).
