    Yum for the curry and pot pies! We’re having slow cooked beef casserole, lamb koftas and home-made pizza this week. I’ve also starting making sugar free biscuits (completely sugar-free, not just substituting with honey or syrup) and baking my own bread. Fun, easy, cheaper and healthier!ReplyCancel

    i love this weekly meal thing. I thought of doing something like this but didn’t know where to start. thanks. ReplyCancel

  • I have a 10-week meal plan. Yes, 10 weeks, and i just rotate through the weeks. It means we only have the same meal about 5 times a year, although I do always cook a double portion and we have the same meal twice in that week…not necessarily on consecutive nights! For me it just takes the stress out of “what am i gonna cook this week?!?”, and having recently-ish gone back to out-of-house employment 3 days a week (with 3 kids) it’s fantastic – Monday is cooking day, I cook 2 double-size meals while the little ones sleep and that gets us through to Thurs, which is the end of my working week. Then I have time on Friday to cook again… Yes, sometimes i get bored of a meal, or find the kids don’t like it so much…so i just substitute in another meal with the same base meat, perhaps a recipe I’ve been wanting to try, and if it work – it stays! I <3 meal plans…can u tell?!? :-)

    Thanks for '20 Days', I wasn't able to keep up with every day, but i have all the print-outs and have made copious notes so that i can do things as i can get to them. My kitchen has had quite a birthday these school holidays!ReplyCancel

{Meal Plan} Satay Chicken Rice + Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang During the process of trying to get my house back into order I decided to be kind to myself and make easy meals that didn’t involve hunting for a recipe, too much preparation or dirty dishes. I’m a messy cook, somehow I use up the full kitchen bench, just […]

    While I’m not a mum yet, I have a busy life working two jobs, keeping the house clean, as well as feeding myself, hubby and our cat. Some nights I’m just too tired to cook a meal from scratch! I love the fact that meal bases help create a yummy meal with minimal effort!ReplyCancel

    I would love to try the So Crispy range because your schnitzel looks delicious and I would love to give it a go! Recently becoming a working mum, I need quick and easy (and TASTY!) meals to cook during the week for my family, and the new Maggie range looks just that!ReplyCancel

    Hi. I have my hubby home sick for the next month and he can’t help out due to his sickness plus I work 5 days a week and we have 3 cheeky boys who make lots of mess so I definitely would LOVE to try these super easy quick dinners please!!ReplyCancel

  • Nicole Edmondson

    I would love to try these quick and easy meals that sound delicious and healthy. With a 3 year and a newborn dinner time is much easier when prep and cooking time is minimal – it means we can still eat a good meal but spend the time with the children that is so important at this time of the day!ReplyCancel

  • Julie

    Please please please choose me for some maggi samples(and if you don’t, never mind I will buy them anyway as they look delish). I’m 28 weeks pregnant, with baby 3 and I’m in the process of cleaning my house and stocking the pantry and freezer with easy food for my hubby to cook as I have been told to expect this baby any day now! I’m trying not to stress too much about it, but rather prepare the kids to not have mum or their new sibling around for a couple of months.ReplyCancel

  • Wendy Sutcliffe

    I’d love to try the satay rice. My son is allergic to peanuts and I so miss eating satay chicken! I could make up the rice and he could have chicken nuggets instead! I like the idea of less dishes too!ReplyCancel

  • Corlia

    I have a very fussy husband so I had to come up with a week meal plan ages ago to keep us both happy :-)

    Tue: Spaghetti Bolognese
    Wed: Grilled pork chops, mashed potato and fried cabbage
    Thur: Slowcooker lamb (usually jumbuck stew), basmati rice, raw carrot sticks
    Fri: Steak, baked chips, corn on cob
    Sat: Chicken Casserole, basmati rice, raw celery sticks
    Sun: Lamb chops, alfredo pasta, steamed mix vegiesReplyCancel

  • pam

    Looks yummy. I like to try out new things that are quick and tasty. Sometimes i will buy a pkt mix and the meat for it .ie chicken and wrap them together and freeze them. So when i look in the freezer i dont have to think, what i will make with that !!! It’s already there to go. Chicken crispy schnitzels.ReplyCancel

  • YUM quick easy meal for the nights hubby is going to be late home, will be easy to prepare earlier in the afternoon :)ReplyCancel

  • Thanh

    For a reduced effort and washing load yet still have a delicious home cooked meal for everybody? Maggi’s so crispy and one pan range is definitely for me!ReplyCancel

  • pamperedstef

    I’d love to win the packets. We are into trying new things in our house (still have to get the 4yo into that habit). Glad you are giving more than one away. I’m cooking for 8 right now and 3 have already flown the coop. :)ReplyCancel

  • Oh i am always looking for quick and easy meals that my husband AND young kids will eat and that i dont have to spend too much time and prep on. Would love to give these a go. Having trouble with the kids and meals it is a nightmare.ReplyCancel

  • With an 8yo & 4yo triplets, I need quick and easy meals that they’ll love. I’ve been curious to try the one pot sachets, but never seem to get around to it lol! But especially since now my kitchen is so sparkly you need sunnies to walk in it!! I don’t have the heart to mess it up!ReplyCancel

  • A.K.A.Mum

    LOL – I’d love to try both! I’m very lucky that my DH often cooks but it also means I have to listen to him whine about how he gets sooooo bored cooking the same things over and over – because he pretty much refuses to look at a recipe that has more than four or five steps in it :-SReplyCancel

  • Barbara

    I would love to win the Maggi packs as i haven’t tried either product. The easier the meal is, the better. Cooking in one pan makes the job quick and easy. Not too much mess to clean up.ReplyCancel

  • Fiasma.....and Flynny too!

    Oh so many reasons why I need to a quick and easy way to prepare dinner….a few main reasons are I work 45 mins away from home so unless I am super organised dinner is always a late one and another and most important reason is my two beautiful children would like to be fed by a reasonable hour (doesnt happen often but when it does OMG does it make night time so much easier for this frazzled Mumma :) )!ReplyCancel

  • Colleen

    One Pan Range sounds great for babysitting days..little helpers in the kitchen make preparing meals so much more fun and means they usually eat without fuss.ReplyCancel

  • Abbie

    crispy sounds good! crisping up the meat is the only way my Miss 2 eats meat at the moment.ReplyCancel

  • vi lammertsma

    Love my new clean kitchen and now can’t bear to mess it up with elaborate dinner cooking! These Maggi meals look so easy and appealing and even more importantly use so little dishes to prepare – would love to the One Pan range on the family!! Most likely will make it on to their favourite meal list for more variety! Looking fwd to putting my feet up with my family in the evenings for a change!ReplyCancel

  • Inspired...

    I always try to cook using one pot… love it… but to try some new flavours and find better ways to hide the greens from the kids is an added bonus to the quick and easy meal…. after all.. the less work mum puts in to cooking dinner… the more likely the kids are to eat it!ReplyCancel

    I have a 2.5yo and a 6mo, hubby is starting a new job, and I’m currently completing an online courses and your 20 day challenge (which has so far been successful!) so I love your quick and easy meal ideas and I love to try some of the one pan recipes!!ReplyCancel

  • Ingrid

    With a busy family, I need simple and easy ideas that make dinner prep less of a chore!ReplyCancel

    If i could use one pot to cook while the hubby is on nightshift, it means less washing up and more ‘me’ time with the remote, couch and icecream (after the kids are in bed of course)! ReplyCancel

  • susan

    As I have just started working full time, I am really struggling to get myself organised with our family meals. With 3 VERY hungry boys to feed, the maggi satchets meal-helpers would certainly be a helper to me!!ReplyCancel

  • We have one pot meals at least twice a week due to after school activities, would be nice to add some new ideas into my regular “one-pot roation”ReplyCancel

  • Jill

    I am the most disorganized person you would ever meet lol my husband does most of the cooking and cleaning as i am the secretary of our local basketball comp and spend over 15 hours a week organising that alone. I would like to give him a night or 2 off from cooking and this looks great! And im sure my kids would love it :)ReplyCancel

  • I’ve wanted to try making schnitzels from scratch but was afraid of getting it wrong but your meal plan makes them look so easy!ReplyCancel

  • I work some nights and Hubby works late others, we are all getting sick of cheap frozen pizza for dinners because there is no time (especially with a little bub) to plan, cook and clean after a ‘proper’ meal. Also, we used to eat a lot of tomato based pastas but master 4 no longer eats anything red so my meal plan ideas have shrunk to less than half!
    I would love to shake up our boring meals with a little Maggi magic!ReplyCancel

  • Andrea D0ney

    Iggam keen to try Maggi because sometimes my life is backwards! (Get it?) :) Seriously when you don’t know whether you’re coming or going, when things are topsy turvy and the world seems upside down, there is nothing more magical than an easy meal. ReplyCancel

  • Meg

    We are such a busy family and on the run so often that i haven’t done a full food shop in months! I run in, grab the usual and out again. I honestly couldn’t tell u what new ranges were around if my life depended on it. Just seeing them in your blog has made me wanna go get some to try (but winning them would be even better :P )ReplyCancel

  • We are non stop through the week, so to have such simple, yet tasty and nutritious meals to try with my fussy girl would be fantastic.ReplyCancel

  • Jillian Marconi

    I’d like to win either of these great Maggi products I work full time as a highschool teacher and I’m also planning my wedding. I am often running around at appointments or meetings so time is an issue and this is a perfect solution.ReplyCancel

  • Kath Crispin

    We have been much better organised with meals this week (your website is rubbing off on me!)Big batch of spag bol made on Monday while I was in the kitchen cleaning (so leftover meals from that). last night steamed chicken and rice balls with salad, tonight chicken cacciatore leftovers from the freezer, Thursday BBQ staek/sausages and Friday will be take awa (a luxury).
    Always keen to try new things luckily Miss 5 is becoming quite adventurous and we are encouraing Mister 3 to do the sameReplyCancel

  • I have seen these meals in the shop but have always put them back as my kids can be so fussy at times. Even if I do a chicken stir fry the youngest just wants the plain rice or noodles. It would be nice to try and get them to eat something different for a change. I get so deflated when I spend ages preparing a meal and they turn their noses up at it!!ReplyCancel

  • Stacey

    So Crispy!! I could totally just eat my computer screen right now! It looks yum! I just gotta taste it!ReplyCancel

  • Teneal

    I can be the most organised person at work but when I get home from a long day and being pregnant with baby #2 the last thing I want to do is spend ages in the kitchen. Looks easy to make which is what i need while the other half is away at work. Less time in the kitchen means spending more time with my son before the new one arrives. ReplyCancel

  • Rachael H

    Hi, I just recently found your website! I am terrible at meal planning and would love to try these sachets. I have 1 yr old twins and find it hard to get dinner organised for them let alone for myself & my husband. These seem pretty easy.ReplyCancel

  • Hubby has started a whole new health kick and while i’m being very supportive and super proud that he is eating many vegetables he would previous not eat he is also requesting the same boring meals over and over as if eating bland foods will make him loose the weight he wants to loose all on its own.
    I’d love to be able to show him with the same basic ingredients and a little help from Maggi we can have a tasty and nutritious meal full of flavour still keeping to his healthy eating plan.ReplyCancel

  • as a single mum of 4 kids, including 17mth old twins, I rarely feel the inclination to cook… nor do I particularly enjoy it these days LOL. These sachets sound like a God-send! Thanks for the chance to enter. Keep up the great work on the blog, I love it!ReplyCancel

  • Teneale

    My current goal is to start menu planning and writing proper shopping lists – and remembering to take the list with me to the shops! If I can make easy, tasty, good, family meals with the help of sachets then I’m in! I would love to try both of these – they sound delicious!ReplyCancel

{MEAL PLAN} Homemade Fried Rice

I must say I am so pleased to be back to my weekly meal planning, during the past few weeks I wasn’t planning our meals as usual.  I didn’t meal plan because I just didn’t have the mindset to think and I didn’t have the energy to visit the grocery store for a long period.  In […]

  • julie mcdonald

    The food is always good here – I have much more success with packet muffins that from scratch ones.  I think the packet mixtures are much better than they used to be – no one can tell the difference at my house and I can have a batch whipped up in 10 minutes and on a plate after 20!
    We are having Thai Green Curry tonight but that  rice may be on the menu later in the week.  ]

    As you can see I already use Lenards for when I need quick easy meals – my two babies are starting child care this week and I will be spending several days at the centre helping them both settle in and so there is less time for me to do dinner prep during the day as I’m used to!ReplyCancel

  • Amanda W

    I’d love to say I am organised enough to have a meal plan, but I am not :(  See we make at least 3 different meals for our family each meal and it’s made up as we go.  My husband and my son will only eat plain things like meat and 3 vege.  My daughter can’t tolerate dairy so her meal is always made dairy free and myself I am vegan so my meal can’t contain anything that contains animal products.  So, it’s very hard to plan ahead too much.  But this is what I have so far……

    Tonight – Tacos (meat for the boys), without cheese and sour cream for my daughter and stuffed with lentils for me.

    Tomorrow – Spaghetti (bolognese for boys), without cheese for my daughter and just tomato flavour for me.ReplyCancel
