Weekly Family Meal Plan #54

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

There is a common misconception that meal planning means you have to arrange extravagant meals. That is not the case at all! Meal planning simply means coming up with ideas for meals during the week, as simple or grand as you like! It just means that you save time and money by being prepared for the week ahead. Here is my weekly meal plan.

Tandoori Fish Skewers – A twist on your usual fish dish, these Tandoori Fish skewers look super yummy. You could cut out some time by buying Tandoori paste instead of making your own.

FRIDAY

Butterflied Roast Chicken– Butterflied chickens are a great option when you want a roast chicken but don’t necessarily have the time for it. Butterflying the chicken greatly reduces the cooking time, making it a great weekday dinner option.

We love Mexican dishes in our family and this Mexican Pasta Bake is a quick and easy weeknight dinner that all the family will enjoy.

BAKING

Mango Macadamia Muffins – Mangoes have to be my absolute favourite fruit of all time. These Mango Macadamia Muffins are super delicious and moist with a delightful crunch of macadamia.
