Weekly Family Meal Plan #144

Seven days of easy family friendly dinner ideas to try. Find some inspiration from this week’s meal plan for quick to cook dinners that will actually get eaten.

Some weeks with dinners it is good to just go back to basics. This week’s meal plan is packed full of dinners that my family loves, and that are easy and fairly quick to cook. There’s a recipe that reminds me of my childhood as well as the good old Sunday roast. I hope you find some dinner inspiration from the recipes below.


Beef Chow Mein – this is a great meal if you have kids. I have always found it a really easy way to add some veggies into their meals. Now that my kids are older we continue to eat it because it’s yummy and one of our family favourites!


Steak, Veggies & Chips – the meat and three veg approach to meal creation is a great one – after all, dinners don’t need to be fancy or complicated. Steak with chips and a few steamed veggies is a great no-fuss meal for families.


Mild Thai Coconut Chicken – chicken and veggies cooked in a ginger and garlic sauce that is sure to appeal to everyone!


Tuna Mornay –  this recipe always makes me think of my mum. Probably not the healthiest dinner, but I occasionally serve it after a big day because the whole family loves it! I serve the tuna mornay on toast with crushed potato chips – it’s the perfect meal for a cozy night at home!


Leftovers – No cooking this Friday night! Everyone can catch as they can and help themselves to leftovers from the meals this week.


Lamb, Barley and Vegetable Soup –  I love slow cooker meals on the weekend so I don’t have to cook after a busy day. This recipe is the perfect throw it all on to cook in the morning, and it’s ready at dinner kind of meal.


Roast Pork – I love a good roast on a weekend! I let it cook away throughout the afternoon as the tasty aromas fill my home and have the whole family counting down the hours until dinnertime.


Lemon Slice –  When I last made this, my hubby made the big call that this is up there in the top 5 slices I’ve ever made. I will be sharing my recipe for this deliciously tart slice this week.
