Weekly Family Meal Plan #46

I’m back with my weekly instalment of meal plans. I think you would have already guessed by now how much I love meal planning and how beneficial it is to your schedule and wallet! This week’s meal plan comes from reader Julia and provides a great balance of vegetables and meat to create delicious dinners. I hope you can find a meal or two on here to inspire your weekly meal plan. Have a great week!

Creamy Leek, Potato & Bacon Soup with Crusty Bread – This warm and creamy soup is perfect to sneak in some extra vegies and to keep you warm on those cold nights.

Honey Soy Meatball Stir Fry – This stirfry is made quick by using pre-made meatballs (make ahead and freeze or purchase) and a delicious stirfry sauce, perfect to make sure you still get a healthy and filling dinner on those rushed nights.
