Meals for May

 Meals for the month of May - for readers who are new to this blog, the reason I list the meals for the month is quite simply,


I enjoy being organised.

I enjoy knowing what is planned ahead, to avoid anxiety/stress.

I enjoy having brain space free for other things.

So what do I do?  

I stock take the fridge and freezer, and our pantry.  From this basic list I plan meals I can easily make with few additional items.

I take my list and go to the app and work out which supermarkets are the cheapest for each item.

Then I plan to use just three supermarkets.  One as a click and collect, one as a delivery and one that is our walk-to local.

So here is our list of May meals.  (N.B we are meat and dairy-free, but we do eat fish and eggs)

1 Roast - this meat-free roast is at our kids' house

2 Picnic - it's a bank holiday so we are planning a day-trip out.

3 ADB (All Day Breakfast) We eat meat-free sausages with beans, potato wedges, egg, mushrooms and tomatoes.

4 Mushroom omelette 

5 Chilli - I know it's a Thursday when Man Wonderful cooks his meat-free chilli

6 Fish Pie - I ADORE fish pie.  I buy frozen cubed fish, add a homemade white sauce and top with mash.  YUM!

7 Bolognese - another MW regular

8 Roast - I have a Quorn roast for us and will cook a piece of pork for the family.

9 Leftovers - we have leftover roast veggies

13 Salmon - oven baked with roasted or steamed veg

18 Curry - I cook veg curries.  Today I'm cooking chana masala and sag aloo

19 Chilli

20 Salmon

21 Bolognese

22 Roast

23 Leftovers

It saves me money because:

1. I don't go to the supermarket for a thing that is not on the list.!

2. I plan around what we already have.

3. I buy just what is needed.

Do you do this organisation?

What do you organise?
