So this evening Andy and I sat down and sorted out meals for the week and wrote out a shopping list. I do this at the beginning of every week so that I can make fewer trips to the shops and with a list in hand, we don’t risk buying things we don’t need or don’t want to put into our bodies. So our meals for the week are the following:
Monday: salmon (already in the freezer) with seasoned rice and roast veggies.
Tuesday: Asian veggie stir fry with Basa fish
Wednesday: baked potatoes with either tuna/sweet corn or baked beans.
Thursday: off to a friends for dinner!
Friday: Quinoa Crunch casserole
So here’s my shopping list for the week. You can see there is a lot more than just ingredients for our meals alone. We tend to snack on cottage cheese and veggies. I eat leftovers for lunch every day and Andy eats popcorn, beans and veggies for lunch. We also have a friend with his 11 month old staying with us so we bought noodles, bread and peanut butter for their lunches 😉
