Meal Plan – Quick Grilled Chicken Salad

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


Sweet and Sour Meatballs with mashed potato and steamed vegetables



Grilled Chicken Salad, fast and easy dinner idea, all in 15 minutes!

Cottage Pie

This cottage pie dish is one of my families winter favourites, but also a great recipe to cook up when you’re not really in the mood for doing anything too fancy.



Bacon and vegetable slice with salad



Night out with friends


Healthy Chicken Quesadillas

Quesadillas are one of my favourite Mexican dishes, and so versatile, this is a healthy recipe not too much grated cheese and no cream cheese!



Bacon, leek and corn risotto – comfort food!!


Cinnamon Tea Cake – Quick cinnamon tea cake with a crusty top.


Easy Pikelets

I make the batter before I pick up the kids from school, let it sit while I go get them (letting the batter sit is not necessary though) and then while they are unpacking their school bag and getting change I spoon the mixture into the fry pan.


Banana Muffins with crunchy topping

I think that grilled chicken salad and cinnamon tea cake will be on my meal planner very soon! I cooked a big lamb roast yesterday which will hopefully last for the next couple of days
