Weekly Family Meal Plan #106

This week’s 7 day family meal plan is bursting with easy, time-saving dinner ideas that still pack a pretty little punch in the taste department.

I had a really busy week so opted for quick dinner ideas in this week’s meal plan, but each dinner was still super tasty and healthy too! There are a lot of ideas – such as cooking in bulk or buying direct from the deli – that you can incorporate into your meal plan to save you time and money, whilst still delivering nutritious and tasty dinners!

Grilled Salmon and Roast Veggies – this is a healthy and really easy dinner to throw together. I got it on the table in under half an hour, and the whole family inhaled it!

Mince and Vegetable Potato Pie – this potato pie is a family favourite in my house – especially during the winter months! It’s also packed with heaps of hidden veggies, so is a good one to get into the kiddies.

Left Overs – I like to give myself a night off cooking every now and again, and the easiest way to achieve that is with a night of leftovers. I made a double batch of the potato pie on Tuesday, so simply served it up again with a side salad.


Chicken Kiev and Steamed Veggies – when I make chicken kiev I just get the ready made ones from the deli. It’s then a matter of steaming a few veggies and presto! A simple and tasty mid-week dinner.

Takeaway Thai – I had a really busy week so decided to treat the family to Friday night take-away… and we absolutely love Thai!


Chicken and Gnocchi Soup – this recipe is packed with lots of veggies – and you could easily add even more! It’s delicious when served with crunchy bread, and is the perfect comfort meal to have on a cold weekend.

Creamy Fettuccine Carbonara – an tasty creamy pasta recipe that can be prepped in 5 minutes, cooked in 10, and eaten in 2! LOL!

Banana Oatbran Muffins – these tasty muffins make a really yummy snack for the kids. If you’re wanting to make extras to freeze and have ready for the school lunches, just leave the nuts out of the recipe (depending on your child’s school nut policy).
