Each week, I aim to inspire you with a variety of yummy recipes in my weekly meal plans that are quick, easy to make, and delicious, so that the whole family will enjoy them. Be inspired by some of the meals in this week’s Family Meal Plan, because they have been inspired by you!!!
As another week begins, I’m sure that you’re struggling to think up some simple, yet still delicious dinners that you can cook for your family this week. I hope that this week’s family meal plan inspires you to cook some yummy food for your brood at home, while still enjoying your evening without slaving over the stove top too much. This week I have some chicken, beef, easy salad ideas and fish dishes for you. Be inspired, pre-plan and cook up a storm in a minimal amount of time. If you have teenagers at home, see if they can tackle some of this week’s meals to give you a bit of a break from cooking every night.

Garlic and Eschallot Chicken Stir Fry – This is such a delicious stir fry, and the best thing about it is how simple it is to make. Doesn’t the chicken look absolutely scrumptious!! I love making oriental stir-fries and capturing a real oriental taste.

Chicken & Pumpkin Coconut Curry – I’ve snuck another one of my curry dishes in this week’s meal plan because this one has rice instead of the vegetables to give you some more variety. You can even try it with some cauliflower rice.

Easy Chicken Finger Wraps – This is a recipe my teenagers put together to help me out and give me a night off from the kitchen and I must say that these wraps are absolutely delish!! Make extra and the kids can even have these for their school lunches the next day.

Mushroom Risotto – You asked for risotto, so I thought I would add my yummy mushroom risotto into this week’s meal plan. It’s creamy enough for the kids to love it too. I really love risotto and I know it might seem like a longer cooking time meal, but it’s well worth it.
