Meal Plan Monday: Guest Posts

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. Today’s post is a bit different from normal because I’m not really going to talk about meal plans at all. Meal Plan Monday is a regular, weekly feature and I love to see all kind of opinions on the subject. Some people swear by meal planning while others just don’t get on with it at all. I don’t think I have seen any one doing their plans exactly the same as anyone else yet! We’re always open to guest posts for Meal Plan Monday and in

Meal Plan Monday: Devon Mama

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. This week we have Hayley from Devon Mama writing about what works for her family! I’ve never been the best at meal planning. My mum used to do it and in my head I linked it to constantly eating the same meals; week in, week out. I’d have a rough idea of what I wanted to eat for the week and buy things that I thought would cover me but that was about it. When I moved in with my (now) husband we lived in

Meal Plan Monday: This week’s Dinners

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. After having a couple of really tough weeks with a lot going on at home and changes happening we still haven’t really gotten back into planning. Erin was super ill last week with conjunctivitis and a throat, ear and chest infection. I had laryngitis. It was also my birthday. We were mega busy. So, this week to get back into meal planning I thought I’d start with dinners and this is what we’re having this week. Monday – Carbonara and garlic bread Tuesday – sausages,

Meal Plan Monday: Getting back to it

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. So, the other week I wrote about going off plan. I thought it was going to be nice to have a break from meal planning. I thought it would give me and Erin a bit more freedom and a bit less stress. That only sort of happened though. I was a lot more relaxed about what Erin ate at each meal, pretty much winging it every day unless we had plans with friends. While it was sort of nice, it didn’t work out for the

Meal Plan Monday: Mummy to Dex

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. This week we have Nicola from Mummy to Dex writing about what works for her family! Before our little baba was growing in my belly, we did not meal plan at all. We mainly lived on takeaways and ready meals and I rarely cooked from scratch. More often than not, I would buy blindly in the supermarket and decide on the night what I would cook. I would always forget to get meat out to defrost and when I did remember, I would change my

Meal Plan Monday: The week with no plan

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. This week I’m back and talking about trying something different. As soon as we started weaning with Erin I planned her meals. I wanted to make sure she tried new and different things every couple of days. We have now been following  meal plan for Erin for 10 months. Last week we tried something completely different. There was no meal plan at all. I’ve spoken previously about Erin’s routine completely changing. Her nap times are all over the place but generally somewhere between 11 and

Meal Plan Monday: When plans go wrong!

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. This week I’m back and talking about when plans go wrong! Every week I do a full meal plan for Erin. As she eats at different times to me and John I haven’t started to plan for all three of us yet. Just recently though Erin has been changing a lot and learning a lot of new things. This means that following her plan doesn’t always work. For the longest time, Erin followed a schedule. We were really lucky to be able to do things

Meal Plan Monday: Savings for Savvy Mums

Welcome to Meal Plan Monday, our weekly feature where we talk all things Meal Plan. This week I’m handing over to Eleanor from Savings 4 Savvy Mums. To Plan or Not to Plan – That is the Question! It is widely advertised that we should all make meal plans if we want to make savings when it comes to our food bill. However, many of us do not (me included) but why not? Is it the child in us stamping our feet, saying I can do it my way? Is it that we can’t be bothered to think that far
