Our Family Meal Plan for week of 29/01/18 - £60

Sunday, 28 January 2018
Our week this week is a very busy one.  Monday and Tuesday nights we'll all be eating at different times, and the same on Wednesday and Friday.  This means the slow cooker will be very useful, dinner cooks itself with very little faffing, and as it's great for keeping food warm until we need it.  

Breakfasts this week will be toast with spread, or porridge/overnight oats and fruit for afters.  Our weekend breakfasts will include crumpets one morning and pancakes the next.

Packed lunches will be falafel wraps with fruit, and a small baked treat.  I'll make the wraps/flatbreads over the weekend then freeze half for later in the week.  After school snacks will be popcorn and small portions of rice pudding.  

Weekend lunches will be Spicy Roast Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup on Saturday, and Spicy Vegetable 'Noodle' Soup on Sunday.  We'll have homemade bread rolls with the soup both days.


I'll be using the dinners from this Meal Plan which we used at roughly the same time last year.  It will be a vegetarian week for us this week, which will help us use up some store cupboard items, and it's always good to have a completely meat-free week occasionally. 

The dinners will be:

Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Dhal (Vegan)

Slow Cooker Vegetable and Bean Chilli

Slow Cooker Veggie Bolognese (Vegan)

Slow Cooker Root Vegetable Hotpot (Vegan)

Bean Burgers with Coleslaw and Potato Wedges (Vegetarian)

Macaroni Cheese

Mixed Vegetable Crustless Quiche with Coleslaw and Potato Wedges
