Week 3: Feeding a family of 4, for 6 weeks - £170! Plus recipes

Apologies for the delay in posting this weeks meal plan. We have had a couple of bereavements in the family and have been pre occupied. 

I have not made recipe cards to go with this weeks meal plans as i have the websites i found the recipes on, bookmarked. 

The shopping list for the whole 6 weeks will be live tomorrow too if you would like to look at that :)

Batch cooked for weeks 4, 5 or 6 

Lentil curry,

beef stew
Veg bolognase (make extra sauce to freeze) 
Pork roast - left over pork for a lunch on the following Monday.( or a dinner Monday night if the joint is big enough)


Meatballs with a spicy mango dip - Via Slimming eats 


This recipe uses chicken mince which i think tastes nicer, but any mince could be used. Make extra to freeze for another meal. The dip lasts 2-3 days in the fridge and goes great with the lentil curry planned for the next day. 

Lentil Curry - Via Netmums 


This can be made in the slow cooker and freezes well. Feel free to cook extra for use in week 4, 5 or 6. 

Green power smoothie 

This isn't a recipe as such. I just juice whatever veg i have and add some spinach. There is lots of recipes online for green smoothies where you can choose which one suits you best. 

The other meals are pretty standard. I tend to stick to basic recipes, i am not too adventurous with meals so all can be found on the net. 

I hope that helps those reading. Its by no means perfect but hopefully you can use some it to put into your own meal planning.
