Weekly Family Meal Plan #186

When you’re super busy, having a weekly meal plan helps take the pressure off! Here are 7 dinner ideas for your meal plan this week.

This week’s family meal plan includes some easy family meals such as Korean Beef Tacos, Quick Chicken Piccata, Pan-Fried Fish and more.


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.


Chicken Tenders and salad – Keep your Monday night simple with chicken tenders! If you have some time, try the recipe below, or if you’re feeling rushed, grab a pack of frozen chicken tenders and a bag of ready made salad. To bulk the meal up, add a jacket potato or some potato gems.  


Cheeseburger Pasta Bake – This quick and easy-to-make Cheeseburger Pasta Bake recipe that teams the tastiness of a beef burger with the comfort of a pasta bake.


Meat and 6-vegetable dinner bowl – I love a classic ‘meat and veg’ dinner. This recipe has an increased serving of vegetables with some great contemporary ideas for serving.


Pan-fried fish with lemon, caper and avocado salad – This light dish combines delicious fish with some different flavours. If the kids aren’t keen on capers, make a garden salad instead.


Scrambled Eggs – Breakfast at dinnertime was always a hit in our house! It’s the end of the week so time to put your feet up with a super quick dinner that you can even get older kids to make. Jazz it up with some fresh, crusty bread in the toaster.


Korean Beef Tacos – This is a really delicious recipe that takes a sidestep from traditional Mexican flavours. The marinating adds time to the recipe so you could marinate on a weekday morning before the work/school rush, or enjoy them on a weekend when you have a little more time.


Quick Chicken Piccata – If your kids like meals such as Chicken Schnitzel, this is another recipe they’ll probably enjoy (and you can cook it with stock instead of wine). Serve this one with vegetables or over pasta.


Recipe – This delicious No-Bake Dairy Milk Marble Cheesecake recipe is super easy to make. These cheesecakes are very creamy, chocolatey and indulgent!
