Weekly Family Meal Plan #108

A weekly family meal plan that’s full of hearty, home-cooked meals that are bursting with flavour, despite being quick and easy to throw together.

I took last week off work to spend time with my family, and more importantly, to spend some time on myself. I didn’t want to spend hours in the kitchen every night, but still craved delicious, warm, and hearty meals that were fitting for a cold winter’s night. This is why this week’s meal plan consists of tasty home-cooked meals that can be thrown together pretty quickly, and even utilised over more than one night.

Nachos – I love the hack in this recipe which says to bake the nachos briefly before topping with all your ingredients so they don’t go soggy. After all, nobody wants soggy nachos – lol!
