January Meal Plan 19th-26th

 |  Budgeting

See other January meal plan post for reasons for splitting this months/why it’s mostly veggie…

This week & a bit actually sees me making use of two of my cookbooks for once!

  • 19th: Vegetable pie w/pastry top (had chicken dippers last night so swapped over)
  • 20th: Turkey meatloaf
  • 21st: French onion & sage soup (Isabel wanted cheesey pasta on the 17th)
  • 22nd: Sweet potato & peanut gratin (pg 63 River Cottage veg everyday!)
  • 23rd: Hot squash foldover (pg 189 River Cottage book)
  • 24th: Fish fingers & chips (might attempt homemade!)
  • 25th: Baked potatoes & coleslaw or beans
  • 26th: Leek & potato soup with chicken & bacon (pg 245 Riverford Farm Cook Book

Now the question is, after this month do I continue the mostly veg theme or do I introduce another meat day? I think I’ve saved money, because I’m being more creative with what I’ve got in so have done less shopping. That’s a good reason to carry on if nothing else!

    Right, that’s it! I’m coming to live at your place – your meals always sound so yummy and far more interesting than mine do. :)

    That leek and potato soup sounds delicious. I’ve been all about making soups lately as a delicious soup is easy to do and they keep so well in the freezer!

    Your note about cookbooks inspires me to pull out some of mine… I have a “3 or 4 ingredient” cookbook that I really should make more use of!
