A weekly family meal plan to help you take control of your busy schedule, save you money at the checkout, and take the chaos out of your evening dinnertime routine.
Meal planning is a must in my household. It gives me direction when I do the weekly grocery shop (and helps me avoid pesky midweek supermarket runs), it allows me to schedule meals around our busy lifestyle, and it stops the “what are we having for dinner?” remarks from the kids.
I hope that my weekly family meal plans help inspire you with your meal plan, and helps to breathe a little calm into the chaos.

Chow Mein – this is a great meal if you have kids. I have always found it a really easy way to add some veggies into their meals. Now that my kids are older we don’t eat it for that reason anymore, we just eat it now because it’s so yummy!

Butter Chicken – a good butter chicken is warm, creamy, and packed with delicious spices – the perfect comfort food! This recipe requires the chicken to be marinated for an hour, but you could prepare this in the morning and leave it to marinate throughout the day.

Mexican Chicken Salsa on Toast – after a busy day I decided to cook up some leftover Mexican Chicken Salsa I had in the freezer and serve it on toast. So super easy and delicious!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Bacon Casserole – I love how easy this meal is. I simply popped it in the slow cooker in the morning and come dinnertime it was ready. I’m not a big wine drinker, so I freeze wine cubes in silicon moulds and then add one in when cooking.

Chicken Noodle Stir Fry – who doesn’t love a yummy healthy meal that can be made in 15 minutes at the end of the working and school week?! The meat and veggies in this dish can easily be switched up to suit tastes, and you could even forgo the meat altogether if you’re wanting a vegetarian option.

Salmon and Spinach Quiche – this quiche is delicious, although I did need to allow a few hours to let the pastry rest and prepare the custard. Alternatively, you could make this recipe with a pre-made supermarket base to save a little time.

Silverside with Veggies – this is delicious and fuss free dinner to end the week on. I like to serve my silverside with mashed potato, steamed veggies and mustard parsley sauce. Yum yum!

Apricot Bliss Balls – school is back, and these delicious little treats are quick and easy to whip up, and make an affordable (and healthy!) addition to the kid’s lunchboxes.
