Menu planning 7 - 13 April

Well I certainly know that I have an extra adut to feed!  Last week's grocery bill was up, as I would normally either cook just for 3 of us, or use the fourth portion for lunch. Only another two and half weeks...

And just to make things more complicated, the brakes on my car have started making weird noises, so we are down to one car - when the supermarket is 10 miles away!  I have sent my husband off with a list to get on his way home from his volunteer day at the railway and he is taking the car to the garage tomorrow.

We did stick to the menu from last week, but the variation on the meatloaf was only partly succssful - I made the meatloaf like a giant sandwich with chopped prunes and spinach in the centre. I think it would be better with them mixed into the meat mixture - you can't pick out the pieces then!

Monday - Baked tuna

Tuesday - Pork burgers

Wednesday - Bacon wrapped meatloaf

Thursday - out for a meal for my parents' Golden Weddding anniversary

Friday - Paleo fish pie

Saturday - Coconut chicken curry

Sunday Slow cooker beef stew

Sharing at usual with Mrs M Menu Planning Monday


  1. I love a good meatloaf me - the kids are anti it!


    1. The younger one would always eat meatloaf - that's what he chose this week, but I think it was the layers that didn't impress him last week!

  2. Ooh I do love a good beef stew, the mister is better than me at them though. Can't you try internet shopping and have it all delivered to your door? Xx

    1. These days I shop at Aldi - and they don't deliver! Not impressed with Tesco any more
