Welcome to Meal Plan Monday. Where we share what we are eating and how I plan our meals as a family who deal with food allergies and coeliac disease (which is NOT a food allergy, but an autoimmune disease) whilst shopping within a budget, mostly at Asda and Aldi.
It feels like about 5 seconds ago that I wrote last week’s Meal Plan Monday and the week has definitely flown by and I can’t quite get my head round the fact it’s Monday again.
This week it’s Burn’s Night, but I am a very bad half Scottish person who TOTALLY forgot it was happening and the husband is out on Wednesday night so we will be belataedly celebrating later in the week and I will need to get my hands on some gluten-free haggis too. Total fail of organisation on my part. May my Scottish Nana forgive me…
Our Meal Plan Monday looks like this, this week:
Monday – toad in the hole
Tuesday – salmon and noodle stir fry
Wednesday – It should be haggis but it’s pesto pasta (see above for why!)
Thursday – Gnocchi and meatballs
Friday – haggis, mash potatoes and turnip (although I am the only one who eats the ‘neeps) I plan to get a gluten-free haggis from here
Saturday – the husband and I are going out for dinner and looking forward to some Vietnamese food. The kids will be having a pizza and movie night at home.
Sunday – I am cooking our community lunch, so we will be having a meal there and a snacky supper.
It’s a relatively quiet week and our meals are on repeat, but at the moment I am really tired and trying to keep life simple and easy. Maybe after half term I will feel more like branching out and also the weather will be starting to improve and we can feel less like comfort foods.
That’s our meal plan Monday for this week, what are YOU eating this week?
