Weekly Family Meal Plan #37

I really enjoy seeing what others make their family for dinners.  Jasmin shared her weekly family meal plan with us recently which I wanted to share with you too, to inspire you when writing up your plan for the week.  The Oven Baked Lemon Butter Fish sounds so good I’m going to make this for my tribe as a different way to get fish into our diet.

Thai Red Beef Curry and Rice – is a great way to turn one of the cheaper cuts of beef into a tender, flavoursome and hearty winter meal.

  Find my Quick Beef Curry recipe here, substitute the yellow curry for red if you prefer a hotter curry.

FRIDAY

Oven Baked Lemon Butter Fish with Potato and Sweet Potato Mash and Veg – tender juicy baked fish with lemon cream sauce, all made in ONE baking dish… It takes longer to heat up the oven than it does to prepare this recipe!

Creamy Tomato Chicken Pasta – Brown 500g chicken, add in mushrooms. Stir in a jar of tomato pesto – I usually use Barilla Sundried Tomato Pesto – and a 250ml tub of Philly ‘Cream for Cooking’, then add baby spinach and 2 cups cooked pasta. Serve with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese if you like.

SUNDAY

Garlic Prawns (with rice) for kids – I ended the week with a steak Surf and Turf (with leftover mash) for Hubby & I

BAKING

Ginger Biscuits –These spicy ginger biscuits will fill up the biscuit barrel and are made in just one saucepan. They aren’t too hard on the teeth and the kids will love them.

The frittata for tonight’s dinner is a recipe from TOH. I quite often make something like this at the beginning of the week – we eat half for dinner and the rest I portion out and take for work lunches. We had a roast for dinner last night and I had leftover roasted pumpkin, carrots and steamed broccoli. I just chopped it all up and used that in place of the 1.5 cups of pumpkin. Great for using up leftovers that would otherwise get thrown away.
Kat, you mentioned last week that you were looking for ways to economise now that the teenagers are beginning to eat you out of house and home….. I find having an egg based meal like this frittata is a great way to make some savings (as opposed to having meat or fish which can get expensive 7 days a week).
Hope this helps someone 🙂

Oh – another way to save some $$ on the menu plan – have a soup night. Nothing like a tasty bowl of soup with thick slices of bakery bread – yummo. All motivated now – might start working on next week’s menu plan….just took the frittata our of the oven and it smells wonderful 🙂 Thanks Kat – I’ve made this a couple of times now and the fetta cheese just gives it a bit more zing !
