Weekly Meal Plan - #MealPlanningMonday Week 16 2017 - Easy Meals for a Holiday

Welcome to week 16 of #MealPlanningMonday.

This weeks meal plan is not my usual plan. As it is the Easter holidays we have got a bit of time away so this week there is no specific meal plan in place. We have got a couple of meals booked but the remainder of the week we will be cooking for ourselves. To keep costs down I will be doing a small shop to get foods and snacks that we may need. But as we are a family of five I am sure you can imagine how much stuff we take away with us so we do not have the room for a lot of groceries. Plus we cannot take perishable foods, we will need to purchase those once we arrive. So this weeks meal plan is going to be a list of meals that will be easy to prepare, foods that we can easily pack and meals that everyone will enjoy.

Here are my top holiday meals...
  • Lasagne - Pasta dishes are great easy meals. When cooking lasagne you can buy some delicious sauces that allow you to easily make this classic dish. You can buy the tomato base sauce, white sauce and a box of lasagne sheets will easily pack.

  • BBQ - Fingers crossed the weather will be good. The fresh meat, salads and bread can be bought there but packing sauces will be cheaper than buying at an increased holiday park price.
  • Packet Mixes - Packet mixes are a fantastic way to cook up a dish. They contain all of the herbs and spices that you need to create a delicious meal!
  • Curry Sauces - I recently reviewed some curry sauces that help you to make authentic curries in no time at all they are easy to pack and a lot cheaper and healthier than a take away!

What are your favourite meals to make while on holiday? What quick and easy dishes do you make?

  1. Love a good curry "fakeaway"! Ray x

  2. Ahh! We have bolognese and a curry on my weekly meal plan. I'm all for easy to cook meals when the kids are off school.

  3. We do similar when away, easy meals made ourselves like pasta dishes and pizzas. Bave a great holiday x

  4. If we're away on holiday, we tend to eat out - I'm not on holiday if I'm cooking! During the school holidays at home, we tend to eat quick and easy meals that everyone likes. Fish and chips, spaghetti bolognese, pizza, etc, are all a hit!

  5. It's challenging creating tasty meals like you do at home when you don't have all your herbs and spices and other condiments with you. Your idea of taking these packets are great way of overcoming that difficulty. We just got back from holiday and have to admit we ate out most of the time. The easiest and tastiest thing I made whilst camping was a 3 ingredient guacamole. Kids loved it heaped on tortilla chips. Have a great week.

  6. I am loving all these meal planning ideas.
