January Meal Plan 27th-31st

 |  Budgeting

Last meal plan post of January, huzzah (and only slightly late). Not as tight on the veg this week because I wanted to use up leftovers and bought a cheap chicken to get February meals in for as little as possible (more on that at a later date).

  • 27th: Chilli & rice
  • 28th: Wraps with leftover chilli, veggies
  • 29th: Roast veggie pasta
  • 30th: Roast chicken & mixed veggies
  • 31st: King prawn curry (they were on offer)

I’m stalking freegle/freecycle at the moment for a slow cooker. I do have one, but it’s only a tiny single person style jobby so no use for big casseroles etc that’ll feed me & the kids. If I can find one, there may be an increase in stews, soups etc in the future.

    I know its not free, per se, but I bought mine at Tesco for a very reasonable £12. Its always been big enough for a four-person portion. It is five years old though so can’t guarantee if it’s still that cheap!

    A slow cooker is on my want list as well – I left mine in Melbourne when I moved up to Sydney, and now that I’m trying to get back into good money habits, having some big slow cooker meals would be really good for the budget.

    I got a slower cooker for Christmas and have no idea how to use it. I tried a few online recipes but they all turned out bad to the point of inedible, despite the fact I’m usually a pretty good (honest!) cook. Trying to decide whether to persevere or donate. :/
