Weekly Family Meal Plan #70

A weekly meal plan that will cater to families craving a quick fix at dinner time, as well as those wanting to spend a little longer in the kitchen.

With a mix of super easy meals, and feeds that are a little more fancy, I am confident that this week’s Family Meal Plan will serve up dinner inspiration that will cater to the fussiest of tastes. Enjoy!

Quick Beef Curry – I love warm winter food on a cold night (this recipe is also in my Winter Dinner Ideas eBook), and curries are no exception! This meal only takes 30 minutes to cook, and is full of flavour and deliciously tender vegetables.

Taco Casserole – this dinner is so fun, and my kids absolutely love it! Ground beef, pinto beans, and tomatoes spiced with chilli powder bubble under a crunchy, gooey topping of tortilla chips and two cheeses in this quick and easy, kid-friendly casserole.

Chicken with Mushroom Sauce and Veggies – very rarely do I make a meal that I don’t rate, but this unfortunately would have to be one of them. I followed a recipe for this meal but won’t share it because frankly, I wasn’t overly impressed. Oh well, we can’t win them all.

Eggs on Toast – don’t be afraid to give yourself a break one night! Eggs on toast are a very underrated meal – teamed with multigrain toast, they become the ultimate poor man’s dish and will surely satisfy the hungriest of little vegemites.

Chicken Burgers – my family finished the school week off with burgers, which I made a little healthier than the traditional sloppy hamburger by using chicken and vegetable rissoles for the patties. They pack a punch in the veggie arena, and taste pretty good as leftover the following day too!

Fish Curry with Rice – I always try to get more fish into my family’s diets, as it’s not something we instinctively cook. This dish was really easy to put together and is filled with loads of vegetables, onion, zucchini, carrot and pumpkin. I served ours with brown rice.

Roast Pork – a tasty crispy roast pork to finish off the week. I served it with caramelised apples and onion, roast potatoes, and glazed carrots and spinach.  I also removed the rind from the roast and put it under the grill to crackle further… ooh it crackled up a treat!

Almond and Pumpkin Seed Bliss Balls – my daughter stumbled upon this very tasty recipe a week ago when pottering around in the kitchen. They’re really yummy, nutritious, and so easy to make! I decided to make a few extras as they are not lasting long in our house.
