Meal Planning Monday

A state of excitement has descended on our household. We're going on holiday on Friday.

Meals are being kept simple this week, and I've even thought of what we'll be eating next week.

My favourite meal this week will be the beef curry, which I'll do in the slow cooker.

We'll need to pop in to our local butchers for some sausages, I've recently started getting a 5 day meat pack from them - which lasts us 2 weeks. You get a medium chicken (3 meals), some stewing beef, mince, sausages and then pork loins. I'll probably also get some tomato sausages from Tadcaster market on a Thursday, sausages being the toddlers favourite.  Shopping this way saves us money, supports local shops and traders and gives us better quality meat.

Do you use a butcher? What are your favourite holiday meals?


  1. We love a good beef curry too! I don't use a high street butcher but I do use an online butcher that delivers local British meat boxes. I tend to order a monthly meat box and then add extra bits on to get free delivery. I love how I get a variety of meats and a full freezer each month. Kirsty Hijacked By Twins #mealplanningmonday

  2. That meat pack sounds great, I reall must buy more from our butchers. Have a fab holiday! #mealplanningmonday

  3. I really fancy quiche now! I use our butchers, I find the meat so much better and it works out the same cost wise(our butchers is really good value!). I need to think of meals for when we go to Center Parc, have a great holiday Rachel x

  4. Ooh, holiday. I find we usually end up eating crap just before we go on holiday as the meal planning goes out the window, so congratulations for being so organised. Some nice meals there too. Enjoy your holiday!


I love getting comments :)
