Weekly Family Meal Plan #68

A weekly meal plan packed with warm dinner recipes to get you through a cold and busy winter week.

Creating a weekly meal plan will not only save you time and money, it will also save you opening the fridge door at 5pm and wondering what to cook for dinner. I hope you enjoy this week’s recipes, and that they help you to breathe a little calm into an otherwise busy week.

Mexican Chicken Salsa on Pita Bread – I love my slow cooker! This incredibly yummy Mexican Chicken Salsa cooked for 8 hours in the slow cooker whilst I was at work, and then this meal was assembled in just 10 minutes! I popped the salsa on top of pita pockets and topped them with cheese and rocket. Presto.

Chicken and Pumpkin Coconut Curry – a super delicious and creamy curry that has the added bonus of being healthy too! I like to make this dish on a weekend as it does take a little time to prep and cook – but it’s definitely worth the extra effort.

Pumpkin, Bacon and Feta Frittata – a fuss-free way to end the week! This recipe takes very little effort to prepare, and tastes delicious when accompanied with most salad and veggie side options. I made two of these so I could freeze the second for a quick dinner option in the future.

Cheesy Bacon and Vegetable Muffins – I like to bake something on the weekend that I can freeze and have on hand to easily pop in the kid’s lunchboxes throughout the week. These muffins are a great alternative to boring Vegemite sandwiches, they freeze really well, and are super easy to make too! 

If you love these muffins, check out my Lunch Box Recipe Cookbook which has over 50 (including this one!) delicious nut-free freezable recipes.
