My week in meals – w/c 18/11/18

A luxurious couple of nights off cooking for me. First on Sunday when the boys took charge smoking brisket on the BBQ, an all-day father and son activity! Secondly on Friday when, knowing it was going to be one of those weeks, I decided to treat us to a takeaway night.

It’s OK to plan to have a takeaway every so often and, if it’s in your meal plan, you can keep track of just how often that is as well as include it in your food budget.
