What's for dinner mum?

Do you plan your family meals in advance for the week or see what's in the fridge and improvise each day?

Mostly in the past I have improvised, but the times when I do plan a weeks worth of meals, buy groceries & fresh foods for those particular meals and then follow the plan, I find it works really well. My aim is largely to waste less and spend our money wisely. but a huge added benefit, I've found, is that it clears my head and takes away that gnawing question each day of what to cook. So rather than "what on earth am I going to cook for dinner, do we have the ingredients, will I have to drag the kids to the shops and do I have enough time to prepare", it's "ok it's Wednesday, burritos for dinner"

So as a way to keep up the momentum I'm starting a weekly "What's for dinner mum?" section over on the right there. And just maybe I can inspire you too, or remind you of a long lost recipe you used to cook, or you could try one of our recipes.

I'm also planning on taking a photo each night and posting it on Instagram, so please come on over and follow me if Instagram is your thing (I'm bubala_jo). I might try to post a montage of pics here too, I'll see how I go.

I'd love to hear - what's on your mind for dinner this week?


  1. Excellent... I can always do with some inspiring dinner ideas :)

  2. ahhhhh, my weekly meal planning fell by the wayside a couple of months back.....

    I do still follow my Sunday - pastry, Monday - Vego, Tuesday - Chicken, Wed - red meat, Thurs - pasta, fri - fish, Sat - red meat plan so it does narrow the field abit. Bus yes, having a menu definately takes the stress off abit!
