Dear Sweet Home has blogged about the benefits of menu planning. This is something I used to do a few years ago but I have since got into some very bad habits - not even looking at the price of the food I am buying - Things have got to change; I am just throwing money away. So, I am going back to menu planning.
Menu for Week Commencing 7.3.11
Home-made sausage rolls (made with real sausages)
Everyone out for dinner.
Chicken satay skewers
fiery noodle salad
Cheat's home-made pizza
So, that is the menu and I have made out a shopping list that also includes fillings for sandwiches, yoghurts and fresh fruit - healthy puddings - now let's see if my shopping bill reduces. Fingers crossed!
