Needing some dinner ideas for your family? Pop back to the blog Monday as 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
Homemade Beef Rissoles with mashed potato and vegetables.
Whenever I make homemade rissoles I usually double the batch so I can pop some in the freezer to have ready as a meat 3 vegetable meal or hamburgers
Simple Oven Baked Lamb Dinner
Serve with steamed greens and butter, salad, caramelised onion quinoa or cauliflower purée… Whatever you fancy!
Homemade hamburgers, from left over rissoles.
Cottage Pie – I made this recipe with sweet potato as a healthy alternative.
Chicken noodle soup is a wonderful winter warmer recipe, especially good for when you are feeling under the weather.
Frozen Fish portions with pasta and vegetables.
Bolognese from freezer on toast.
Sometimes it’s hard to find something different to add to the kids lunch boxes, they have their usual sandwich, a piece of fruit, vegetables sticks and some baking, but there are days where they want something a little more and I am loving the ‘balls‘ that I have been making lately. Not only are they great to have on hand as a quick snack, they have been a great filler to the kids lunchbox too.
These muffins are delicious and reasonably healthy! Filled with wholemeal flour, oats and apples, you could even add in some sultanas if you wanted. I was really pleased with the amount of batter this recipe made, 12 regular muffins plus 12 mini muffins, enough for the kids to have some for afternoon tea and freeze for school lunch boxes.
What is on your meal plan this week?
I’d love to hear what you are your family are planning, email me your meal plans (with recipe links and photos if you don’t mind sharing, you don’t have to though) and I can publish it on the blog!
