Weekly Family Meal Plan #41

My 3 kids are currently on school holidays so this weeks meal plan is all about quick and easy dinners, so I can be spending time with the kids instead of in the kitchen. I’ve included a couple of “set and forget” dishes to save some time, and even a cheeky midweek 2 ingredient dinner.

I’m excited to be partnering with Woolworths over the next few months to share some of my top tips when shopping, meal planning and helping to find great food savings.  Speaking of saving…. I have an exclusive coupon code for all of The Organised Housewife community.  When you place your next Woolworths online order and spend $200, use this code to get $15 off!

I’m wanting to help make healthier choices more affordable for you, with the coupon code above and this list below of guilt-free options to help curb the hunger to help you get through the colder months.

Slow Cooked Silverside with Mustard-Parsley Sauce –I love this silverside – it’s fuss-free, so very tender and is really simple to put together.  Tastes so good with some mashed potato, steamed vegetables and mustard parsley sauce!

Eggs on Toast – I love a simple, easy dinner for hump day. Eggs on toast are my go-to and are perfect for the whole family.

Chicken and Vegetable Rissoles with mashed potato and steamed vegetables –  This chicken and vegetable rissole recipe hides in a few simple vegetables like carrot, zucchini and onion.  I make a big batch so I can either freeze uncooked patties for another night or the kids enjoy having them on rolls for lunches.

Zucchini and Sweet Potato Slice – I love making zucchini slice and use my own recipe often for lunches, adding in whatever vegetables I have in the fridge at the time. This zucchini and sweet potato slice was a really lovely light meal, perfect for those very hot days to serve cold with salad.

Thank you so much – I love your weekly meal plan blogs as it forces/reminds me to do my own and I love trying out some of your recipes as they are easy and kid friendly! 🙂
I just cooked the bacon, potato and leek soup and thought you and readers might be interested to know: I made it dairy free (for my daughter) by using coconut milk instead of cream and added just a teaspoon of worsteshire (allergen free) sauce and served it with olive baguette bread. It is fabulous!! Yum ? thanks again for all your inspiration.
