Meal Plan – Fish Tacos and more

Struggling to know what to cook for dinner?  Each Monday I will share my families weekly meal plan and other recipes to help inspire you.  I use easy family friendly recipes that the kids will enjoy.  I do try my best to keep our meal plan healthy, however we may have something every now that may not be.  See my previous weekly meal plans here.

This weeks meal plan


Salmon Patties with steamed vegetables


Chicken Bolognese with spaghetti – a delicious twist to the traditional beef bolognese.


Pork chops and salad


Basil and Chorizo Penne – Combine hearty Italian chorizo sausages with penne and tomatoes in this simple homemade recipe. 

I made this in the thermomix, I would say this is probably the only negative about the Thermomix, I can’t cook pasta well in it, it shreds it so next time I’ll cook the pasta in a saucepan, but it still tasted good!  Regular recipe  |  Thermomix recipe

Fish Tacos – The perfect meal if you’re looking to up your weekly fish intake.  We don’t follow a paleo diet, but these were delicious.  



Lentil Hotpot – For a healthy weeknight meal, you can rely on this hearty vegetable rich dish.

100+ Cookies from 1 Mix – I love this recipe one big baking session and the kids have some biscuits for their school lunchboxes, I split the mix up into 3 and flavour each differently, dates and maple syrup is my favourite. 

Energy Muffins – Healthy energy muffins topped with lots of nuts and so delicious. Filling and satisfying it’s a great snack to have between meals.

Hi ya Kat, there’s a similar recipe in the original thermie cookbook that does cook spaghetti really well. Think its called creamy tomatoe and salami fettachini. I follow it but use chirozo instead of salami and prefer to cook chirozo in frypan (no oil necessary) separately though.

I have made that basil and chorizo pasta dish before in the thermomix and I agree. Tastes amazing, but the pasta shreds. I would love to know where you get your thermomix recipes from and how often you use your thermomix. I am after some more ways to use mine, as I have only had it about 3 weeks. Thanks!

I have just completed my first ever weekly meal plan and followed it up with a shopping list!
Weekly meal plan #1


Pizza: ham/pineapple, pepperoni


Lamb chops + sala


Spaghetti bolognese


Potato crusted fish + salad




Curried sausages


Beef stroganoff + veg


Chocolate chip muffins
Rice bubble bars

I have been trying to cut down on buying overly packaged and processed foods as a way of saving money and the environment but I have a sweet tooth that I’ve passed to my kids, lucky I love baking!

Your blog has inspired me to become more organised in many areas of my life.
Off to do some shopping where I won’t stop and wonder what it was I went for in the first place.
