Weekly Family Meal Plan #28

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I love that Mal has sent me her meal plan for the week after planning was based around one of the tasks I set to meal plan around what was in the pantry/fridge/freezer.  Mal is a first time Mum of a Preppy this year so meal planning has been a must ‘It takes the stress out of worrying what’s for lunch/dinner each day and as a Mum we already have enough to worry about. It also saves lots if money knowing I only have to buy whatever is needed for that week’

Hi Kartrina, I too find that it takes so much pressure off the week by meal planning. I work during the week on my feet so I like to be able to prepare and cook quick meals that are also nutritious. I have two children with allergies to eggs, nuts and sesame and find I am cooking many things from scratch. Weekends are spent baking treats such as eggless muffins/ brownies, bliss balls or cookies for the kids as well as a main dish for school lunches like some pulled meat for sandwiches, crunchy chicken tenders, this week was sausage rolls. Monday is always meat free day , this week is zucchini and corn fritters and a side salad. Tues, minced butter chicken and cauliflower rice bowls. Wed, turkey bolognese with spinach fettuccini. Thurs, black bean and veg (corn, zucchini, capsicum)burrito. Fri, pan fried salmon fillet with spiced baked cauliflower ( cumin and paprika), brocolini. Sat, pizza nite with homemade two ingredient base ( yoghurt and flour), toppings of mince beef and tomato pasta sauce, soprano and chorizo and a veggie one with zucchini artichoke mushroom and feta. Sun, beef and broccoli rice bowl using mince and a soy and chilli sauce. Hope this may help with ideas for others.
