Weekly Family Meal Plan #181

This week’s meal plan features some easy, family-friendly recipes to help you get organised for the week.

Plan your week by meal planning and find some inspiration with these family friendly meals for winter, including Mexican Beef Pasta Bake, Easy Popcorn Chicken and more!

BENEFITS OF MEAL PLANNING

Each week I plan my meals for the following week, this is called meal or menu planning. Some think it’s not worth it, but it really is a simple task that takes 5-10 minutes to plan one week of meals. The money and time that these five minutes save me throughout my week, makes it well worth the effort.

MONDAY

Mexican Beef Pasta Bake – This easy and delicious bake is perfect for cold winter nights.

TUESDAY

Greek Salmon Salad – This fresh and nutritious dinner combines the heavenly taste of salmon with Greek flavours for a healthy mid-week meal.

WEDNESDAY

Mushroom and Leek Filo Pie – Enjoy this lovely vegetarian pie with a side salad. Be sure to save some for lunch the next day!

THURSDAY

Instant Pot Chipotle Chicken Bowls – Bowls are a great way to bring variety to your Mexican dishes. This is a delicious recipe that you can top with avocado, sour cream or whatever takes your fancy.  For a less spicy version, omit the chilies and replace the salsa with tinned tomatoes.

FRIDAY

Easy Popcorn Chicken – Make your own take away style dinner at home with this fun recipe. Serve with salad, veggies or chips and your favourite dipping sauce!

SATURDAY

Homemade Beef Rissoles – These homemade rissoles are quick to make and tastier than the ready-made ones from the supermarket. Serve with your favourite vegetables and keep any leftovers for snacks and lunches.

SUNDAY

Valli Little’s Lamb, Zucchini and Haloumi Burgers – Mix up the classic Sunday night lamb concept with these delicious lamb burgers. 

BAKING

Easy and Delicious Banana Bread – This banana bread is a great way to use up bananas that need to be eaten. It’s perfect for work morning tea or to have available during school holidays for snacking.
