Our Family Meal Plan for week of 11/06 - £50

Our Meal Plan is late this week, mainly due to be being floored by a foul migraine for a day and a half.  Thanks to some decent migraine drugs I am kind of back to almost normal.  This week is a really busy week (again!) so I need low faff meals that can either be premade or prepared with minimal effort as I'll be out at dinner time 4 nights this week.

I'll still fit in baking our bread this week and/or tortilla wraps as needed.

My daughters will have school dinners this week and my husband and I will have dinner leftovers for our lunches.

Dinners

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday we'll be having Simmered Mince Many Ways.

Thursday and Friday we will be having Hearty Sausage Casserole

On Saturday and Sunday we will have Mince and Lentil Onepot

Our lunches on the weekend will probably be Twice Baked Potatoes with a variety of toppings.


Shopping List

Despite this being a busy week there is still plenty of fruit on our shopping list, and also some yoghurts for snacking as I won't be baking much.

The cost of all 29 items needed for our Meal Plan this week was £50.38 when ordered online and delivered on 10/06/2012.  My shopping would've cost £58.89 at Tesco and £60.86 at Sainsbury's.
