I am not planning a shop at all this week, as we still have quite a lot of food in the house. Our meal plan will be based on what we can find in the fridge, freezer and cupboards. It is a no shopping week!
I am still recovering from my trapped nerve, although it does feel a little better. Even so, I am keeping it super easy.
A meal plan for no shopping week
Cheese omelettes, jacket potatoes and salad. We need something really easy as we were up at 4 in the morning taking our student for her bus. 4 am on a Saturday!!!! How did I get talked into that?
We will have a roast today. Mr S has chicken thighs and I have nut cutlets in the freezer. Will have roast potatoes, lots of veg and Yorkshires.
All being well with my neck pain, I hope to be back at work. I expect to be tired and I am not planning on any major cooking. Mr S won’t be here, so I will make do with bread and soup.
Penne with tuna and black olives. This is a healthy store cupboard favourite that is quick to make too.
Prawn risotto, as I have both prawns and peppers in the freezer, with salad.
Fish and chips – nothing home made here. Both from the freezer. We will have peas with this and some salad if there is any left. I have a massage booked for my neck and shoulder so I need something quick anyway.
Slow cooker vegetable casserole. I will chop it all up before work and chuck it in the slow cooker. I love coming home to something warming from the slow cooker.
Not the most inspiring of menus, I realise, but I am not pushing myself until I am completely better! I will embrace my no shopping week as it saves time and money.
One more thing before you go…
One more plea to vote for Shoestring Cottage in the SHOMOS Peoples Vote, if you haven’t already. You need to do it before the 31st October. Here is the link.
