Submit your meal plans or recipes

This is the first week of February and as promised this month I am getting back into my regular blogging routine.  Typically on Monday’s I will share our family meal plan (from the week prior, so I can include recipes and photo’s of our food).  However, I was really overwhelmed by the excitement and busy-ness of last week (1st week of the kids going back to school I have so much to catch up on) and haven’t had a chance to write the post I really wanted to start with.  I wanted to share with you the benefits of creating a weekly meal plan and how I meal plan. I will work on that post this week and share it with you next Monday.

share your meal plan

Through my meal planning series this year I would love to include some guest’s meal plans… your meal plan or even just a yummy recipe.

By sharing another families meal plan it will give you some variety and show what other families eat for dinner, bake and/or prep for school lunch boxes.  I am looking for readers, bloggers, anybody to share the following:

  • Family friendly recipes, with photos; or
  • Your meal plan, with photos and recipes

All readers and bloggers will receive full credit for their post (or be anonymous if you prefer) and links back to your blog/business.

Submit your recipe here or email meal plans and recipes to [email protected]

I have shared my meal plans weekly on the blog since I started back in late 2010.  I often look back through them for inspiration and I must admit my cooking style and what I feed my family has changed and improved.  We are eating healthier dinners and what we eat over the week is balanced.  I often have days where I can’t be bothered cooking and I include our simple eggs on toast in the plan.  I’m not a dietician or expert, my meal plan is not guaranteed to be purely healthy or to help you lose weight…. it’s what I feed my family and is there for you to use, be inspired or tweak to suit your family.

I love the look of that Teriyaki chicken! I might have to add it to my meal plan for next week.

I don’t have photos – not that tech savvy yet to know how to get them from the camera and into the computer…but someone else can cook it and take a photo if they like!
I have a super easy recipe for left over chicken – whether it be left over bbq chook or from a roast. It helps make a little chicken go a long way and of course you can use fresh vegetables if you prefer – I just tend to use frozen as this is my go-to meal when I don’t feel like putting in that much of an effort to feed myself…
I usually serve it with rice so put the rice on to cook and then do the chicken.
Shred the chicken into a saucepan, add in a crushed chicken stock cube or equivalent, a tin of apricot nectar(because it’s more apricot-y than just juice), some canned apricots (not the ones in syrup generally as they can make it too sweet) or a cup of dried diced apricots, or you can put in dried apricot halves if you like it chunkier. Add a packet of (salt reduced) dried French onion soup mix and some mixed frozen vegies – we like the celery, peas, corn, capsicum mix. Cook on medium heat, stirring it fairly regularly to stop it sticking to the bottom and cook till the soup mix thickens up the nectar and the vegies are cooked to your liking.
