Our Family Meal Plan 27/05/13 - The Exhausted Half Term Edition £66

I am knackered! It's Half Term Holidays this week for us which means I will be even more tired come the end of this week.  I've a backlog of blog posts, reviews, recipe development work and emails along with my usual work shifts, 3 kids home all week (plus an extra 3 kids all day one day) and housework/household chores to sort out too.

This means that our Meal Plan is going to be low faff and partially recycled from a previous one.  

Breakfast will be cereal and milk or toast with a piece of fruit for afters.  Our dinners will be from this meal plan.  Our lunches, accompanied by fruit and homemade yoghurt, will be as follows:


Quesadillas using homemade Tortillas


Savoury Scone Swirls or sandwiches

We'll of course be having some baked treats which I will blog separately throughout the week.  The cost of our groceries on 26th May 2012 was £66.18 from Asda, had we shopped elsewhere our shopping would've cost £74.95 from Tesco and £81.34 from Sainsbury's.
