10 Week Meal Planner

Obsessive-compulsive? Maybe. But this 10 week meal planner provides an excellent starting point when I write my shopping list every week. A lot of the meals use up leftovers the next day, and some recipes say (double) to indicate that you make double quantities and use the rest in another dish later in the week.
I have been mocked for this, but I stand by it! There IS flexibility to swap meals around and change it if you have friends round. This possibly may change your life...

  1. Oh goodness me, 10 week?! I'm hugely impressed! I just cook the same four or five things over and over again...
