Weekly Family Meal Plan #103

A delicious reader-inspired weekly meal plan that’s packed with easy, healthy, and wholesome meal ideas to help get you through 7 days of dinners.

Like so many other mums, I sometimes feel that my family eats the same things for dinner. This is why I love to share a reader meal plan every few weeks – in the hope that will inspire your meal plan as much as it inspires mine. This week’s family meal plan comes from Elle, and it’s jam-packed with tasty meals that will certainly be making an appearance on my family’s dinner plates soon.

Crumbed Chicken Tenders with Veggies – Elle served her family up some crumbed chicken tenders that she teamed with broccoli, cauliflower and mash. If you’re looking to change this meal up a bit, you could even create it as a bake (see the recipe below for ideas).

Steak Burrito Bowls – a simple and easy meal that Elle says consists of steak, salad, and a bit of salsa and sour cream. Sounds delicious!

Fritters with Salsa – a super easy dinner idea that’s fabulous for using up extra veggies. We have chicken fritters a lot in my home, but Elle opted for jalapeño and corn fritters at her place, served with an avocado and tomato salsa. Yum yum!

Chicken Schnitzel with Veggies – this is a regular meal in my home too! You could make your chicken schnitzel from scratch, or if you’re pressed for time grab a few readymade ones from the supermarket. Elle served her chicken schnitzel with peas, broccoli and potato.

Spaghetti Bolognese – one way to make your meal planning easier, is to keep one night the same every week and just change up the other six. Elle serves up spaghetti bolognese every Thursday night in her house, and the kids love it!

Bolognese Toasted Sandwiches – I’m a big fan of leftovers! Waste not want not and all that. Elle made good use of her spaghetti bolognese mince leftovers by serving it on toasted sandwiches. Add some cheese and you have yourself an easy and super tasty dinner that’s perfect for a winter night.


Nachos – in Elle’s home, Sunday night is kid’s choice… and they nearly always choose nachos!

Cheesy Bacon and Vegetable Muffins – I always like to have some of these in the freezer because they make for a fabulous school lunch snack, an afternoon treat, or even an easy dinner served with a simple salad.
