I plan to hit Aldi after work today, but it should be a reasonably inexpensive shop as I am still working my way through the yellow stickered meat I got a couple of weeks ago in Asda as well as my store cupboard. DD3 wants to eat healthy low fat lunches, which means buying a lot of salad! I will use eggs, ham or tuna with this.
My lovely friend Paula has invited me round for dinner on Friday, so I am making the pudding. I made the meringue last night and will finish it off with some whipped cream and fruit just before I go to her house. I thought this was reasonably inexpensive. I also have to make a chocolate cake for DD3’s birthday at the weekend. I don’t think that will be healthy or low fat! She can have a day off for her 16th 🙂
So this week’s menu plan is as follows:
Tonight – yellow stickered pork loin steaks with spring greens and spuds
Friday – just two daughters in. They are having yellow stickered chicken steaks with chips and peas
Saturday – treating the family to a meal out at a Hungry Horse (very good value!) for DD3’s birthday
Sunday – chicken cooked in a sauce from Approved Foods with veg
Monday – sausages and mash
Tuesday – macaroni cheese and salad
Wednesday – spaghetti with sardines
Thursday – veggie enchiladas using the rest of the Approved Foods kit from last week
Scarily I heard a rumour today that we might be facing a pay cut where I work if we lose an allowance. This could be around £900 a year for me :-(. I should find out for sure next week. If I tighten my belt any more I won’t be able to take a breath! Onwards and upwards – it’s all we can do!
