An 8 Week Meal plan

Yep, I’ve done an 8 week meal plan! I’ve been doing a weekly meal plan for a good few months now, and I’ve really noticed my shopping bill come down in price as I’m not just throwing stuff in the trolley.

Then last week I’d got so fed up of all the kids and James asking me “what’s for dinner? multiple times a day that I stuck the meal plan on the front of the fridge and thought that’s it they need never ask me again.

Then one of my subscribers on You Tube said they did a 4 week meal plan! I thought this was a fab idea. I would know what I’ve got to buy weeks in advance, it would help me budget and know one need bother me again haha.

So I’ve taken it one step further and done an 8 week meal plan. We’ll go right through the 8 weeks of meals and then start it all over again, changing any meals that they moan about adding any new ones we fancy.

So I thought I’d put the meal plan on here, some are simple things like beans on toast, others need a bit more planning like slow cooker meals and there’s also some new meals in there the kids haven’t tried.

As I go along any new meals I do I’ll put the recipe upon here.
