Super simple meal plan on a budget

Gosh it’s been a while since I posted a meal plan!  I’ve been doing them but haven’t posted them on my blog.  I haven’t really posted much on my blog recently if I’m honest and I need to sort that out.  So here’s this week’s super simple meal plan.  As always I was shopping on a budget and I’ve had loads of questions about how I save money on our food shop so I’m going to share a few top tips in this post too!

  • I'm feeling positive today. I don't know if it's the sunshine, the fact that the kids are in a lovely mood, the fact that when Alistair gets home tonight I have him home for 4 days or none of the above but I've woken up feeling the calmest and most content I have in a long time. I hope it lasts but for now I'm going to enjoy it. We're heading out to the Trafford Centre today with my mum to do some holiday shopping which will be nice and I've made a rare bit of effort to put my face on and a dress that makes me feel good. I hope you're having a good day whatever you're doing. 🌞

  • Ok, so we don't know what supper is but we are totally on board with 2nd breakfast before bed!! We're trying something new tonight. The kids had an earlier, lighter dinner and then supper later on before we start the bedtime routine. My theory is if Megan has a fuller tummy when she goes to bed she may sleep longer. (It's gatta be worth a try!) This morning she woke up absolutely ravenous at 5.20am so fingers crossed this helps.  They had peanut butter porridge and loved getting involved, helping me prepare it.

Does anyone else give their little ones supper? Does it help them sleep longer? What food do you usually offer? I'd love to hear from anyone else who's tried it with their hungry little sleep thieves x

  • Reasons to be happy today:
🌞The new series of GoT last night was awesome
🌞No having to rush for the school run this morning
🌞We're seeing my cousin and her gorgeous little girl later.
🌞We have crumpets in the shape of Easter bunnies
🌞Harry got into our first choice of school for Reception!! It would be easy to focus on the fact that I have terrible toothache and haven't slept at all but I'm choosing to focus on the positive. And they are pretty awesome positives.

  • Sometimes the tastiest meals are the least visually appealing. This was soo tasty! Chicken and mixed bean enchiladas for tea tonight, made with the leftover chicken from yesterday. They were super tasty and both kids really enjoyed them. 
I'm proud of myself today. We got out of the house and I feel good for it. Here's to small wins and small steps in the right direction xxx
