When I did this weeks meal plan it was very cold and grey out so it is jam packed with comforting and totally not healthy food!
Monday – Mince and Mozzarella Italian Pasta Bake
Tuesday – Chicken Stroganoff with Rice
Wednesday – Chicken and Broccoli Puff Pastry Pies – never did them last week
Thursday – Pork Chili and Cheesy Fries
Friday – Crunchy Tacos and Refried Beans
Saturday – BBQ Chicken with Ranchero Rice
Last week I had curry on the meal plan but all that day I was not in the mood for curry and then Mr. H came home with some beers and in a really cheery mood since he got Friday off work so decided to switch up the meals.
That is the great thing with meal planning though, sometimes it is just having ingredients at hand rather than cooking what is next in line.
I had already defrosted the chicken so we threw out some ideas and ended up with fajitas. It ended up working like this:
I used the main curry ingredients and the main fajita ingredients then used cupboard staples to make a marinade and then some of the ingredients for the next days meal to round it out. The ingredients I used from the Spicy Coleslaw Pork Wraps was enough to go around the next day so that meal was still on plan. Nothing went to waste from the curry meal as the coconut milk and curry paste will stay good for another day.
And that is why I love meal planning you have everything ready to go for meals you love and save money and time in the process.
