Drusillas Park is one of the South East's best family attractions. It is more than just a zoo with rides, playgrounds, water fun and mazes. We took the kids along on May Bank Holiday using our Tesco Clubcard vouchers and were intrigued to see how Drusillas would fare on a super hot Bank Holiday Monday.
This week’s meal plan is a little different because I’ve been challenged to try and feed my family for 4 for a week for £50. Sound impossible? Well it certain is a challenge for me but I'm going to give it a go this week and here's a run down of how I plan to do it...

Wow! Monday again! Hope you are having a great ban holiday in the sunshine. Last week's menu went really well and we actually stuck to it. This week I'm trying to run down the freezer so I'll be using up lots of leftovers. I'm getting a bit bored of repeating the same recipes so after the clear out I'm looking forward to trying some new dishes.
Here's this week's meal plan:
I skipped last week's meal planning as I was super busy leading up to my Mum's wedding at the weekend. But tomorrow is May and I'm back on track aiming for a really healthy month leading up to our holiday in less than 4 weeks time!
Here's what we are eating this week...
Well, didn't April fly by! I’m really enjoying creating these post capturing memories of the past month. For me it was definitely a month of two halves: Easter holidays and my Mum's wedding. So the early part of the month was days out with my girlies, cinema trips on wet days and fun in the garden and park when the sun showed up. We also went up to London to see the latest Disney on Ice show at Wembley. And the back end I was completely absorbed in making my Mum's wedding cake which was a huge challenge for me and I was super pleased with the results. Esspecially as I made all the sugarpaste flowers by hand. The wedding was beautiful day. May holds the countdown to our holiday! Woo hoo!
A week without a blog post! But do not fear, I have returned. What happened? Well after 15mths of intense planning my Mum got married yesterday. And I was surprised by just how much I have been knocked off course the past couple of weeks. I managed to keep my head above water with work and the kids but everything else, the house, the washing, the blog went on pause. But I'm back with a surprisingly calm brain and I feel more relaxed than I have in years. Clearly all the wedding planning and cake making was getting to me more than I realised.
Seeing my Mum so happy yesterday was amazing and made all the hard work worthwhile. It's gonna take a while getting used to her new surname, not that she's had the same one as me for donkeys years now but it's a change and I tend to get anxious when anything in my life changes course. But if anything was going to prove how much we mean to each other planning this wedding did just that. I love being her rock even if I am exasperated sometimes by her and she by me!
Love you Mum xx

You may have noticed there hasn't been any Meal Planning posts over the past couple of weeks. This has been due to a mixture of the kid's school holidays, wedding prep for my Mum's upcoming wedding at the end of the month and a nasty case of tonsillitis (which hit right after the Easter Bank Holiday weekend). But with the kids deposited at school this morning and just two weeks until the big wedding I am firmly back on track. Here's what we are eating this week...
