This week’s family meal plan is courtesy of one of our lovely community members, and has a hearty mix of wholesome and meaty dishes that is sure to help inspire some dinner ideas for the coming week.

This week’s meal plan has been contributed by our lovely community member Amanda. Every family is different – which means every meal plan is different. I love hearing about what other people are having for dinner. I also love finding new recipes inspired by the reader-influenced meal plans I share. The Lamb Kofta Salad recipe below looks absolutely delicious, and I think I will add it to one of my own meal plans in the coming weeks. I hope you find some dinner inspiration as well from the meals below.
