It’s been a while since I wrote one of these. While we have been staying with my parents they have taken control of most of the meals, which has been a welcome break for me! My mum doesn’t meal plan in quite the same way that I do, but she generally has a good idea
We have been living at my parents for a few weeks now while our renovations are underway. My mum has been doing 90% of the cooking, which has meant my usual meal plans are fairly redundant! I’m not afraid to admit I’m finding the whole “make it up as we go along” routine quite stressful.
It feels like a long time since I shared a meal plan. I have still been writing them for ourselves every week, but not typed them up to go on here. We did really well last month and didn’t have a single take away. I won’t lie – it was painful – but we managed!
Well we have finally gone out and bought a kitchen! The days of quick and simple meals are behind us….. nearly. It will still be another painful 4 – 6 weeks before we can have it installed and in working order – but we’re making progress at least! I am really struggling with meal ideas

It’s another busy week in the OddHogg household! We have a couple of meetings this week about our kitchen design, so hopefully it won’t be much longer before we’ve got something ordered. Until then though we continue our easy meals for dinner. I can’t wait to have the space to properly cook again! That said,
Well I’ll be honest – we didn’t stick to the meal plan for last week, never mind knowing how much we spent on the food. It was an major fail, but with the work we have been doing in the house I think we can be forgiven! With Piglet’s birthday this coming Sunday we are
Hooray! Meal Plan Monday has returned! I am so pleased to actually have a meal plan for this week. We’ve decided to mix things up a bit though – got to keep things interesting! Not content with our usual way of shopping, we’re now allocating a portion of our grocery budget just for dinner. We
We’re still in limbo at my mums waiting for out building work to finish. We’re are looking forward to getting home, not just because we’ll have a new kitchen and living space to decorate but because we can slot back into our routine. I haven’t been meal planning while we are here and it just
