Food Shopping

Hi all,

After our dinner last night, I went through the fridge, freezer and cupboards to check what I had, then sat with my trusty pen and notepad and wrote out my meal plan for the week, and accompanying shopping list.

As I have said before, I shop at Aldi, it’s 5 minutes from where I live, staff are friendly, as are (most) of the customers, it’s well stocked, clean and great value.

I have bunged a few ‘cheat’ meals in as I know I will be busy some days – tonight is one of those days, I have a Chiropractors appointment, and know I won’t feel like doing a ‘Nigella’ in the kitchen later, so we are having Aldi’s Salmon Wellington with new potatoes and salad – it’s really lovely, expensive compared to what I would normally spend – a payday treat 😇

I,ve given you a sneak peak at the contents of my fridge, some good, home grown runner beans, home made hummus for snacking, half a melon, some bad, bottled larger, wine and homemade fudge 😋 Salad drawers stuffed full and the freezer is stocked now too. I am guessing that most of you will have a similar fridge on payday.

Not at work tomorrow, so will have a ‘doing day’ – washing, housework and cooking 😍

Dinner is served X

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
