Grocery Haul and Meal Plan – 6th June 2016

We are back from holiday, I have finally conquered the washing mountain and things are slowly returning to normal.

Nick is away this week with work so it is just Rosalie and I for dinner this week. This week’s meal plan is full of my favourite comfort food but healthier versions of them.
Our dinner meal plan for this week is:::
Monday – Creamy chicken, bacon, and avocardo Pasta with sweetcorn and spinach
Tuesday – Fish Pie
Wednesday – Nick’s Mum’s for dinner
Thursday – Sausage and Mash
Friday – Steak and homemade Chips
Saturday – Dinner at Grandma’s House
Sunday – Roast
You can take a look at our weekly grocery haul with all the ingredients we bought to make these meals over on my YouTube channel.

    Ohh.. the creamy chicken, bacon, and avocado pasta with sweetcorn and spinach sounds amazing! I think everyone in our house would love it! Do you have the recipe?

      No Erin. It was one of my throw whatever I have left over in the fridge pasta's! 🙂 Basically I boil the pasta, add coconut oil to another pan and brown the chicken and bacon whilst the pasta cooks. When the pasta is cooked I drain it but reserve some of the cooking water. I add that along with a spoonful of cream cheese to my cooked chicken and bacon. I throw in the sweetcorn and spinach and cook until the spinach has wilted. I had an avocado that needed using up so chopped it up an blitzed it in the nutribullet before adding it to the sauce as well with some seasoning. It was yummy! Do let me know if you recreate it. I'd love to know what you think x

    Ooo, haven't done sausage and mash for ages, might do that one evening this week, although it's getting hot with us now so we're having lots of lighter meals at the moment 🙂

      Sausage and jacket potato with salad is another favourite in our house. It's a more summery alternative 🙂

    Your meal plans always seem much more interesting than ours, i really need to try some new recipes and spice things up a bit as we tend to stick to the same things. Monday's pasta dish sounds delicious! xx

      That's so funny that you like the sound of the pasta as I was only using up all my leftovers from last week. If Im organised enough I try and find at least one new recipe to try each week to keep things interesting.

    I wish I could do a meal plan but my other half is so fussy that I can never really plan!

      I make my husband sign off on the meal plan at the start of each week so he can't moan x
