Grocery Haul and Meal Plan – 17th October 2016

Monday is our usual slow cooker recipe as I am at work from 8.30am till 5pm. I actually prepped this in the morning before I left for work. The Jamie Oliver recipe isn’t written to be used with a slow cooker so I tweaked it a little. I followed the earlier recipe steps up until the stew goes in the oven, instead I just poured the pan full of ingredients into my slow cooker. It’s the first time I have done this recipe so I hope it works!

It’s a week of lots of healthy, comforting recipes for us to enjoy. Now the weather is turning colder, all I want to do is eat! It’s the first time in a long time that I have been excited to eat every single dish. This week is a gooden’.

    I really must start this again. Meal planning really does save so much time in the week when we are busy.

      I find meal times so much less stressful when I know what I’m going to cook. It also means I know what to get out of the freezer xx

    Chili con avocado – that’s a new one on me! We always plan our meals out but often find we don’t quite get through them all for some reason!

      I need to get more creative as we always seem to make the same stuff. I’ll have to get pinning!
