Why We Stopped Meal Planning

I’ve raved about meal planning, I love it. I really do. I love the organising, I love the planning and I love knowing what I need to buy. But recently I have found that it wasn’t working for us. We’ve started buying our meat from a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) monthly membership, and because of thisContinue reading “Why We Stopped Meal Planning”

Jay’s Away So We’ll Play

Jay’s away this fortnight and I wasn’t going to do a meal plan, but groceries need to be done and it gives me a good idea of what to cook on some of those super long days. As you probably know from this post, we don’t need to buy too much fresh produce these summerContinue reading “Jay’s Away So We’ll Play”

A Fortnight Featuring Feta

I did the groceries and I bought 4 packets of feta. Now I love the stuff, but that seemed like a lot.

The next fortnight is a strange one for meal planning. Jay and I are both away, separately, for 2 nights. Jay’s away for work and so I thought I’d pack up the car and take Elliot to visit some friends in the mountains. I’ll be taking a slow cooker primal/paleo meal with us to share withContinue reading “Meal Planning – Hipcook App”

Meal Plan – Pizza, Pasta, Burgers

Last fortnights meal plan ended up being a bit of a bust. Elliot and I ended up visiting my grandparents for a couple of days and so we didn’t cook dinner at home those nights. But it’s all good, because now those meals have been switched to this fortnight. Bloke Beef Beer and Mash AContinue reading “Meal Plan – Pizza, Pasta, Burgers”
