Menu 14/07/13 - 20/07/13

So this last week has been glorious weather wise, we've had some much needed sunshine. There's only 5 meals this week, as we decided to make the most of the weather and have a mini BBQ for the 2 of us today on the Sunday. We're also planning to have a bigger BBQ on Saturday (weather permitting).

While the weather is warmer, we're also tending to eat more salads for lunches to take to work. This week, we're going to BBQ some chicken thighs, then have these with the salads with some crispy streaky bacon. 

Please bear in mind that some of the below list is for my other half who is not gluten free and although I do not eat gluten I am not Coeliac.

Just as  note, all of the above were bought from my local Asda on 14/07/13 and prices were correct at time of publication. I've not included the BBQ items that we bought as we will not be using them all, some will be used in next weeks BBQ.

Some of the prices in the above are offers and some will be stored away for use in future weeks. Some items will replenish the store cupboard.

I will only be using half of the Turkey Mince (the other portion has been put in the freezer and will be used next week). I also don't expect to be using all of the cheese I have bought and actually expect this to last about 2 - 3 weeks. I have also opted to buy frozen broad beans instead of a tin, this means that I will have some more in the freezer to use in some upcoming recipes

I'm going to have a full stock take of my fridge, freezer and cupboards before planning properly for next week. With the warmer weather here, we'll be having some BBQ's, so I just want to make sure that I use up the food that I already have to make sure I'm not just buying food that will not be used.
