MONDAY

Slow Cooked Mexican Beef Burritos – Mexican is one of my favourite cuisines, and this recipe is full of flavour and a great dinner to prep the night before. Place in the slow cooker in the morning and simply serve in the evening. I like to serve it with salad and cheese wrapped in a tortilla, although you could serve it on pasta too.

TUESDAY

Chicken Chips, Potato Wedges and Salad – a simple and easy dinner for those nights when time is limited (and my PJ’s and Netflix are calling me! LOL). I like these chicken chips because they only use Australian chickens, and there’s no added hormones either.

WEDNESDAY

Thai Fish and Pumpkin Soup – who doesn’t love a tasty soup in winter… and my goodness this one is tasty! My family like food with a bit of a kick, but if you’re not a fan I would suggest adding less chilli (or forgo it altogether).

THURSDAY

Winter Hash – a very hearty meal packed full of flavoursome spices, and gorgeous tasty sweet potatoes. We had this Winter Hash with pork (just like the recipe below), and it was delicious!

FRIDAY

Homemade Pizza – What better way to end the week than with homemade pizza? It’s super cheap, fun to make with the kids, and the topping options are almost never ending!

SATURDAY

Quick Shepherd’s Pie – my hubby made this for the first time probably about 6 years ago now! It’s still a regular visitor at our dinner table, especially in winter. Super yummy!

SUNDAY

Roast Lamb  – I love cooking a roast on a Sunday night because although they’re an easy meal to prepare, they do take a little bit of time to cook. I had it cooking away all afternoon and it smelled delicious. We had our roast with steamed greens and roast potatoes and carrots.

Cookies – These cookies are so easy to make! I used my Easter Cookies recipe, but just replaced the easter eggs with chocolate chips.
