Weekly Meal Plan - Week Commencing 18th May 2015

Last week I returned to getting my weekly meat delivered. This means we will be having a bit more variety. I like that each week I will be getting meats which I would not usually buy.

This week I was sent beef steak skewers, smoked bacon, pork shoulder, burgers and pork pies.

Last week I shared a variety of recipes and also wrote about a new campaign that is running to help parents get their children to eat more veg. It is a must read for any parent. I was amazed by the statistics that the campaign has shared! You can read more in my Eat Your Veg post.

These are the recipes I shared last week...

This is what meals we will be enjoying this week...

Week Commencing 18th May 2015

Beef Pies

With the beef skewers that I received in my meat box I am going to remove the beef from the skewers and will use it to make individual beef pies.

Spaghetti Carbonara

With the smoked bacon I will be making a carbonara. This is a favourite of ours that we have not had for a long time.

Pulled pork

On Wednesday I will be using the pork shoulder to make a pulled pork dinner.


This is another favourite that I am planning to give a make over. Instead of using a tomato based sauce I am planning to cook the meat and vegetables in a creamy sauce.

Sausage and Bean Casserole

This will be a great, easy one pot meal that the kids will love!

Next week, as it is half term, I am not meal planning however I will be sharing my top meal planning tips and some recipe ideas!

I hope you have a good, tasty week x

As always I am sharing with At Home With Mrs M - Meal Planning Monday

  1. I like the idea of changing up the usual lasagne. We have been low carb since Christmas and I tried making quinoa lasagne which was a disaster! Much better using aubergine instead (kinda more like a moussaka) #mealplanningmonday

  2. My son would like your lasagne - he doesn't like too much tomato!

  3. I love the sound of your lasagne, my son would love this. The beef pies sound delicious too.

  4. I really should try playing with meals... but I'm not adventurous enough. Where do you get your meat delivered from? I've been considering it myself.

    1. Hi Beth, I get mine from Farmisons. They're based in Yorkshire and only deal with specific farms so you know where the meat comes from x

  5. Mmm all sounds delicious...we love carbonara here too :) xx

  6. Fab meal plan this week, the pulled pork sounds fantastic! Have a great week #mealplanningmonday
