Weekly Menu Plan – 15th January 2018

I’m calling this week “the week where I get stuck with Flu, don’t eat anything substantial for three days but still need to go shopping to make sure we kinda eat something next week”

Yeah this week wasn’t the best, I’ve spent most of it in a haze of dizziness, which for me is quite unusual. I’ve had my fair share of colds and feeling crappy that I know how to cope, this time though I had sweats, dizziness, lack of concentration and lack of appetite, I even couldn’t go to work one day which is super unusual for me as I couldn’t cope.

Anyway onto the excitement which is our menu plan for this week har har. Above is my shameless shopping as you can see when we went shopping yesterday I went without a list or clue. I knew I wanted to have a few quick meals as even though I’m going back to work on Monday I’m not 100%, so once home I’ll just want to cook quickly and just quilt it on the sofa. Also I apologise for the crappy photo, I had started to put my shopping nice and neatly on the belt when a lovely lady said she was opening and to move over, so I felt rushed and just dumped it all and took a quick snap, yes sadly I did get looked at stupidly!

Turkey Dinosaurs – £2.10
Potato Lattice – £1.05
Toothpaste – £1.00
Biscuits – £1.00
Ben and Jerrys – £2.50
Coffee – £2.00
Lip Care – £1.50
Orange Juice x2 – £2.70 (on a deal 2 for £2.20)
Cheese – £0.90
Pizza Bakes – £1.05
Yogurt – £2.10
Soothers x 2 – £1.06
Cadburys choc – £1.00
Dog Treats – £1.50
Cookie Dough Drink – £0.50
Sharwoods x 2- £1.74
Quiche – £2.00
Cake – £2.00
Total – £27.70

Yep not proud with that shopping at least I got a few things for dinners, the rest though (shakes head) I’m blaming it all on the Flu, thankfully next week is a new week and at least I didn’t spend a MASSIVE amount of money. I also still checked for deals, so that’s a plus point. I was going to get some saving stamps to go into my book but the machine wasn’t switched on so I popped the money into my sealed piggy bank instead. Oh and it’s still not above my £35 target so again that good right?!?! Just kinda looking for silver linings lol

My total for the month is £88.59 / £150, now this is amazing. We technically only have one more shopping week left with £61.41, so I did what most people wouldn’t do, I went and bought one of our pups a new bed! £45.00 worth of bed but as by the photo below, he loves it. We spent Saturday at my sisters house, where the photo was taken and as soon as we came back with it, he hasn’t been out of it. This fills my heart with joy. He needed a new one as he was using Oscars one, which when we first got Larry was fine as he was a lot smaller than he is now. He’s managed to relax a lot more in the last couple of years and it seems with relaxing he’s gotten bigger. I guess he isn’t shying away anymore.

Now onto our menu plan for the week

Breakfast – I’m going to try again for porridge and the other half is on cereal

Lunch – I’m hoping for some type of couscous salad thing, the other half will be on cheese sandwiches.

Dinner –

Monday – Pizza things above with the last of the chips
Tuesday – Sausage casserole and mash (I’m hoping I will be feeling better and as such ok to start spending time in the Kitchen, hence the mash. I’ll be using sausages from the freezer and putting them in the slow cooker)
Wednesday – Soup and Bread
Thursday – Quorn Enchiladas
Friday – Quorn Tikka and Rice
Saturday – Fingers crossed Homemade Pizza.
Sunday – At the parents, excited as we’re attempting Vegan falafels, nomnom. Hoping to do extra and have them for the week with probably couscous lol!

So that’s it, I’m expecting this week just being a getting back to normal week. I’m hoping we get some better weather so I can maybe make it out into the garden and have a look at what we have and what I haven’t so if I need to buy anything I can do.

    Hi Nessy. I’ve just found your blog via “Our New Life in the Country”. Good luck with your goals in 2018. I’m looking forward to following along from Australia. We visit the IOM for the bike races every now and then, so love anything Manx. You are fortunate to have such wonderful local produce on your island and a community very conscious of fresh food.
