Our Family Meal Plan for this week - £49

I've another busy week with my usual two work shifts, two school governor meetings at school, two clinic appointments and the last of three parent consultation sessions, this time for my eldest.  This means once again meals need to be quick to prepare and ideally able to be prepared in advance a few times this week.

Breakfasts will be porridge with homemade fruit compote.  Lunches will be homemade wholemeal and vegetable pizzas with crudites, a piece of fruit and a small baked treat for afters.  Weekend lunches will be Vegetable Quiche and French Onion Soup with homemade cheesy bread rolls.

Dinners

Simmered Mince Many Ways - Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday

Vegetable Casserole with Dumplings - Thursday

Homemade Fish and Chips - Friday

Mixed Vegetable and Pearl Barley Risotto - Saturday

Macaroni Cheese with mixed vegetables - Sunday

As usual I compared the cost of my shopping, which was £48.87 when purchased from Asda on 09/03.  Had I shopped elsewhere my groceries would've cost £51.92 from Morrisons and £53.87 from Tesco and £55.56 from Sainsburys.
