Meal Planning

Things I have learnt from doing the stocktake:

  • You could wrap our entire estate in the amount of kitchen roll I found in the bottom of the press.
  • If I’m ever stuck for cement I have plenty of weetabix which will suffice.
  • There is enough coffee here to last for years, probably because I don’t drink the stuff.

What I need to buy to carry us through the next week:

  • Milk – yep, that’s it.

I have enough fruit in dried and frozen form to last more than a week. There are loads of vegetables in the fridge and the freezer, plenty of butter and yoghurts.  I have enough meat in the freezer to feed us and plenty of eggs.

I’m attaching Wholesome Ireland Meal Plan so you can fill it out yourself from what you have found on the stocktake.

I’m also attaching a copy of my meal planning for the week ahead so you can see how it’s done.  Mine starts today; Wednesday:  Wholesome Ireland Completed Meal Plan

So tweet me, leave a comment below or comment on the FB page to let me know how you get on. In theory you should be able to bypass the shops apart from essential purchases.

I'm an Irish mother to 2 boys, born & bred in Dublin, Ireland. I like to cook simple & fresh food for the family, with the family on a budget.
