A weekly family meal plan that’s full of delicious home-cooked dinner ideas, plus a few easy and quick meals for those busy nights too!

On this week’s meal plan I’ve put together a combination of quick and easy dinner ideas and some that require a little bit more prep. There’s bound to be something that appeals to each member of the family with steak burrito bowls, easy fish and chips, pesto pasta and chicken fritters on the list. Why not do some lunchbox baking to build up a stockpile in the freezer for when school goes back, the banana wheat-bix muffins recipe below freezes really well.

Pesto Pasta – Pesto pasta is always a hit with everyone. For a vegetarian option; cherry tomatoes, toasted pine nuts, and a little parmesan cheese would be delicious. Or add in some bacon or chicken if you would like a more filling option with protein.

Fritters with Salsa – a delicious dinner idea that’s fabulous for using up extra veggies. My chicken fritters recipe often gets requested in my home, avocado and tomato salsa on the side is a great accompaniment. Serve with a garden salad or steamed veggies. Yum yum!
