Meal plan Friday 21st August 2020

 Last weeks meal plan went well, the Hawian Chicken was delicious and we definitely will be having this again. This week we are watching the pennies a little more than normal as school bits have cost quite a bit. So I am using bits from the freezer and the store cupboard.

Friday - Scampi and chips. Fish fingers and chips for the boys.

Saturday - Spag Bol

Sunday - BBQ for a family birthday

Monday - Tuna Pasta Bake

Tuesday - Cornish Chunkies. These sound interesting.

Thursday - Sausages and homemade beans with jackets



  1. Back to school time is SO expensive isn't it! I hope it goes well for us all!

    Lovely meal plan, as always, and well done on using up what you have in - always a great way to save some money! x

  2. Love the sound of the Cornish chunkies!

  3. Ahh we did the school shop too and it definitely does all add up. The Cornish chunkies sound like a great way of using up leftover veg - and the kids won't even notice they're eating veggies if it's stuffed inside pastry. Cunning ! lol

  4. Ahh! School stuff is so expensive isn't it. I am so thankful that we've not had much to buy this year.
    Great meal plan! The Cornish Chunkies do sound interesting. x

Deadheading Petunia

Today I learned that I have been deadheading my Petunia incorrectly for, wait for this, four years, yes you read correctly four years. I could not understand why my once blooming amazing petunias were not blooming anymore and had black bits on them. I had seen these black things on my Petunias every year but did not really think anything about it.  A google search and I had a breakthrough. My petunias were going to seed as I had been deadheading them incorrectly. I thought all I needed to do was pull out the flower and it would re-flower. Oh, how wrong was I, I needed to be cutting off the whole of the flower head to stop them from going to seed. Going to seed means they slow and stop producing flowers as they believe they have completed their job. I could never understand why they did not look good all summer but other peoples did and now I know. Yesterday I spent all day deadheading. Including several trips to wash hands and snips. Petunias are sticky and when you are deadheading two
