A week of family friendly dinners that are light and delicious and perfect for warm weather weeks. Quick and easy ideas to prepare!
Welcome back to the first weekly family meal plan of the year! This is a busy week in my household, and with the warm summer weather, I am looking for light, fresh meals that are quick and easy to prepare. Once school starts back it really feels like the pace of the year picks up and everything starts to get really busy. Getting back into routines like meal planning helps streamline those busy weeks and days. Hopefully you find some dinner inspiration for your meal plan for the week.

Balsamic Glazed Salmon and Roast Vegetables – this tray bake recipe is only takes 30 minutes to prep and cook. Perfect for a busy weekday dinner that is still healthy and delicious! I love flavour of the salmon cooked with the glaze.
Chicken with Feta, Mint and Pearl Couscous Salad – this salad is light and has a wonderful summery flavour. On really busy days I sometimes grab a pre-cooked chicken on the way home and then I only need to prepare a salad.
Lemon Chicken Stirfry – Lemon and chicken is such a great flavour combination. This stirfry recipe has a very clever traditonal Chinese technique to keep the meat tender and moist.

Steak, Vegetables with Roast Potatoes – There’s nothing quite like a perfectly cooked steak and roast potatoes. A nice hearty meal as the end of the week approaches.

Homemade Sausage Rolls – This is a recipe of mine that I like to make ahead and keep a supply in the freezer for an easy dinner one night or to use for lunchboxes. I’m going to use my freezers supply for an easy Friday night dinner. Some quickly steamed vegetables or a salad will be perfect on the side.

Crustless Quiche and Salad – this quiche is a super easy and quick recipe to make, yet delicious and healthy with a salad on the side. You could add different filling ingredients to suit your preferences.

Avocado and Feta Smash on Turkish Bread – the perfect light easy dinner. Great for the nights when you don’t feel like eating a big meal. This is often my go-to light dinner if I’ve had a big lunch.

2 Ingredient Lunchbox Scrolls – the dough for this scroll recipe only needs two ingredients to make and you can add whatever flavouring you prefer. They freeze well to keep for school lunches.
