{Meal Planning} Easy Grilled Chicken Schnitzels

I would like you to please forgive me, I always intend on taking photo’s of my meals, however I have the worst memory and I always remember half way through eating.  I am going to try and make this a priority in the future.

I love to cook yummy scrumptious meals, I am sure I have mentioned before I am trying to make meals that are also budget friendly and possibly easy to make a double batch of (slower cooker meals are perfect for this).  We are out 2 night during the week from 4 till 7 with after school sports.  So on these day’s I need to make dinner before I pick the kids up from school, this is where my slow cooker has come in very handy.  I also make alot of pasta bakes as they are easy to make and to reheat.

Here is this weeks meal plan:

(don’t forget to link your meal plan up below too, or comment letting me know what you plan is for the week)

Monday – Lamb and Tomato Hotpot

Tuesday – Frozen Fish Fillets with pasta (continental pasta and sauce packets) and vegetables

Wednesday – Chicken Soup

Thursday – Less than $12 for complete meal – Donna Hay’s Chicken Schnitzel with vegetables

Friday – Easy dinner from the freezer

Saturday – Lamb Chops with vegetables (inspired by My Pigeon Pair)

Sunday – Beef triangles – left over mince in freezer, puff pastry cut into 4, with egg wash over top, cook for 20min.

BakingCinnamon Crumble Muffins, a family favourite which disturbs me as these muffins are a packet mix.

Monday – meatballs and vegies, Tuesday – stir fry chicken and glass noodles, Wednesday – apricot chicken risotto, Thursday – vegies in the slowcooker and noodles, Friday – baked beans (canned), Saturday – OUT (without kids WOOHOO!), Sunday – tomato soup (canned…)!

We are moving on Sunday so trying to use as many heavy or frozen items as possible. Canned baked beans and canned tomato soup are not weekly staples in our house – especially not in the same week! Similarly, we wouldn’t usually have chicken two nights in a row but the meatballs have to be eaten today, MIL for dinner Weds so can’t give her baked beans… Aaah, what a crazy week.

Thanks for the forum for allowing me to plan each week and keep myself accountable, k 🙂

Don’t be disturbed – those Cinnamon Crumble Muffins are a favourite here too and why not – they turn out perfectly every time. Bri often takes a few in winter to school for her friends. If I take them somewhere I always get asked for the recipe! I say it’s a recipe from my Auntie Betty!

I’ve been slack posting up my meal plan, so much so that the one I did up today – finishes tomorrow!

Packet mixes are not an issue if you choose your brands wisely (i.e. the less weird numbers the better!) packet mixes you use at home are far better than many of the highly processed, extensively stored products that can be bought from some independent grocers and major supermarket chains. Their production also produces alot of what amounts to cosmetic waste, the cost of which is passed onto you 😐 Also industrial/factory made cakes (a top national bakery) are often produced using bulk packet mixes anyway!
If you want the convenience of packets pre-measure all your “dry” ingredients into a snaplock bag, that way you are half done to whipping up a batch at short notice (they may even store in fridge or freezer)
For cookies/biscuits/pastry freeze uncooked, cakes/muffins un-iced. Just wrap well to prevent freezer burn.

Monday: roast pork, roast veggies and gravy.
Tuesday: Cold pork (leftover from Mon) and salad.
Wednesday: Pumpkin soup with bacon and onion savoury scones.
Thursday: Braised steak and onions with potato mash, carrots and beans.
Friday: Homemade pasties, using leftovers from Thurs meal.
Saturday: Spaghetti and meatballs in roasted tomato sauce
Sunday: Veggie soup with meatballs, using leftovers from Sat meal.

As you can see, I do one big meal every second night so that I can use the leftovers in a simple meal for the following evening. Works for me!
