Weekly Family Meal Plan #113

This week’s family meal plan is packed with quick and easy meals (that are also super tasty!) to help you get through a busy week.

I had a hectic week at home and in the office last week, so needed a meal plan that was going to get me through this busy time. I find that creating a meal plan – even if it’s a really easy one – makes my weeks so much more manageable! Instead of opting for last minute (and expensive!) takeaway on crazy weeks, I can instead make sure that I shop for easy manageable meals that won’t add any extra stress to my week. I hope that you enjoy this week’s stress-free meal plan.

Chicken Pasta Bake – this is a quick and easy dinner idea for a busy weeknight. This bake only takes 20 minutes to prep and you can add in extra veggies and pasta if you want to bulk this meal out even further.

Steak and Veg – we don’t get very fancy with our steak and veggies, which makes it a really easy meal to throw together. Hubby cooks the steak on the BBQ whilst I prep the veggies in the kitchen – easy! If you’re wanting a fancier version of this dinner though, check out this recipe below.

Beef Taco Strips – this is another fabulous dinner option for a busy weeknight. They take about 15 minutes to cook and the kids (depending on their age) can even help assemble and wrap their own tacos.

  Find this Soft Shell Beef Tacos recipe here.

Pork Buns and Dumplings – I get our pork buns and dumplings straight off the supermarket shelves – they are super tasty and quick to prepare! If you’ve got the time (and the motivation) to make them from scratch though, you could give this recipe below a go.

  Find this Steamed BBQ Pork Buns recipe here.

Homemade Pizza – I like to make our pizza dough from scratch (check out my Homemade Pizza Dough recipe here) but you could save time by buying these pre-made from the supermarket. Then it’s time to get creative with your topping ideas – the sky is the limit!

Easy Dinner – this is a fend-for-yourself kind of night. There’s left-overs in the freezer to choose from, otherwise my kids are capable of preparing toasted sandwiches, noodles or eggs on toast.


Pumpkin Soup – this has to be the easiest pumpkin soup I’ve ever made (plus it’s super delicious!). I like to make a double batch of this recipe so that I can freeze some and have on hand for quick and easy dinners.

  Find my Creamy Roast Pumpkin Soup recipe here.

This is the most easiest pumpkin soup I have ever made. Also helps that it is really delicious too! If you haven't made your own pumpkin soup before I really recommend you try this one! I have included regular and thermomix recipe below.


Peanut Butter Coconut Balls – these bliss balls only require four ingredients, plus they’re vegan and dairy-free (I’ve recently been trialling a dairy-free diet to help my daughter’s eczema).
