Today – A budget meal plan -vegetarian
I mainly write about food on my Eat Simply food blog but I have been thinking for a while that I need to start meal planning over here at Family Budgeting and reviewing my budget – as our food shop spending can really get out of control.
It can be really shocking how muich of our budget goes on food actually – and quite how much gets wasted. I am not proud of it and i is not setting a good example to my kids either
I have had a very expensive last few weeks so I am going absolutely back to basics here and that means meal planning.
Here is what is on the budget menu plan – vegetarian at Casa Family Budgeting this week
A Budget Meal Plan – Vegetarian, Simple and Thrifty
I am using lots of things from my store cupboard this week in my meal plan and lots of frozen veg too. I plan to just shop for bread and milk and a salad and keep costs as low as possible:
(Dads away so keeping it super simple today)
Tomato or Vegetable soup and Cheese on Toast
Spaghetti with Roasted Vegetable Sauce
Veggie burgers with sweetcorn relish and home-cooked sweet potato fries and green salad
Black Rice Salad and veg (with Quorn bacon for the kids)
Sweet Chill Tofu and Rice (for us)
Homemade tortilla pizzas and a quinoa salad
Veggie quiche (using leftover veg form Friday) with baked potatoes
Nut roast and all the Sunday lunch trimmings and lots of black pepper
