WEEKLY FAMILY MEAL PLAN #34

Thank you to Devon for sharing her families weekly meal plan.  I enjoy reading what others make in their home for their family as it’s nice to add some variety as sometimes it’s easy to just cook the same meals.  I would truly love for you to share your family’s weekly meal plan in the comments below (email me photos too if you wish), I’ll pick one to share every few weeks instead of mine.

THURSDAY

Poached chicken salad –”This is a classic chicken salad found in virtually every Vietnamese restaurant in France.

I’ve have two weeks in a row where I’m home with one of my man-people. One was away last week, the other away this week. So…lamb shanks have been on the menu. So expensive for a family of five, but so yum and way cheaper when you’re only feeding two! This week we’re having:

Monday: pan fried barramundi with caesar style salad (Barra frozen from Aldi is only $17/kg)
Tuesday: chicken kebabs and caesar style salad (kebabs also from Aldi – very yummy)
Wednesday: Lamb shanks with sweet potato mash (recipe from 9Honey)
Thursday: Soup and garlic bread
Friday: fend for yourself
Saturday: Homemade pizza…or maybe we’ll buy dinner…
Sunday: roast chicken & vegies
Of course, we’re baking Anzac biscuits this week. We’ll probably have that as a slice, so they’re braces-friendly for my son.
