A super tasty reader-inspired family meal plan that will get you organised and excited for dinner time in your home this week.
This week’s meal plan comes courtesy of customer Kasie, who used her recently purchased Magnetic Weekly Meal Planner and Shopping List Notepad to organise a tasty week of dinners for her family. The meals are simple, delicious, and fit for a busy family in need of some easy (yet hearty!) dinners that can be whipped up quickly on a busy weeknight.

Chicken Enchiladas – enchiladas are a favourite in my home too – my family LOVE anything Mexican-inspired! This is a great dinner to prep the day before so that you’ve got it ready to go on a busy weeknight.

Meatloaf, Veggies & Mash – meatloaf is an easy meal to sneak in those extra veggies. Serve with some steamed veggies and hearty hot mash, and you’ve got the perfect winter night meal for the whole family.

Pork Chops & Coleslaw – coleslaw is an easy side to team with meat. It can be bought readymade or created from scratch – you could even get a store-bought coleslaw and jazz it up yourself with a few nuts or fried noodles.

Burgers – what kid doesn’t love burger night?! Kasie is spot on with this one as burgers are a definite crowd-pleaser in my home too. We make a whole event out of it in our house, with everyone pitching in to construct their own burgers.

Homemade Pizza – pizza nights are the best, and just like burger nights the whole family can get involved in the creation of this dinner. Keep it simple with store-bought pizza bases, or try your hand at my budget-friendly pizza dough recipe instead.

Steak & Chips – the meat and three veg approach to meal creation is a great one – after all, dinners don’t need to be fancy or complicated. Steak with chips and a few steamed veggies is a great no-fuss meal for families.

Leftovers or Easy Dinner – I am a big fan of easy dinners, especially on a Sunday night. This could be leftovers, eggs on toast, or a bowl of cereal. If I have a single-serve of leftovers at the end of a night, I often freeze them. That way when these ‘easy dinner’ nights roll around, there are lots of individual leftovers in the freezer to choose from.
Oreo Cookies – these are the ultimate cold winter night cookie! Dunked in a hot cuppa, the Oreo chocolate pieces melt and taste so delicious. They make a good addition the kid’s school lunchboxes too.

CUSTOMER MEAL PLAN
It’s so easy to organise your grocery shop with the pre-written categories on the shopping list, and the meal planner is great for reminding you to defrost your meal, put in some extra prep time, or prepare the slow cooker in the morning.
