This week’s meal plan with Italian Meatballs


Italian Meatballs with Tomato Sugo – I made mine in the Thermomix, recipe from Louise Fulton Keat cookbook, something for everyone, similar regular recipe here.



Potato Crusted Fish with salad – The potato coating on the ling fillet gives it that special touch. A nice option for a dinner party or a family meal with added flair!


Chilli Con Carne with wedges and vegetables.


Salmon Penne – This Salmon Penne is another easy weeknight dinner.
