Weekly Family Meal Plan #77

A 7 day weekly family meal plan to help you and your family get through a busy week of dinners and meal preparation.

The weather will warm up before we know it, so I am making the most of warm soups, hearty bakes, and other equally delicious warm winter meals in this week’s family meal plan.

Chicken Schnitzel and Veggies – an easy and delicious way to kick the week off! You can make your chicken schnitzel from scratch as per this recipe, or opt for a quicker option by choosing pre-made schnitzels from the supermarket.

Mince and Vegetable Potato Pie – this is a great recipe to make ahead of time, I made this on Monday as I knew we were going to be out till late on Tuesday, so as soon as I got home I popped some foil over the top and heated through for 30 minutes, removed foil and browned up the cheese for a further 20 minutes. We had this pie with a side of crunchy salad.

Fish and Chips – this is such an easy meal to get through a mid-week hump. Simply pop in the oven and presto! The herb tartare in this recipe is a really yummy touch too.

Roast Pumpkin Soup – the weather is going to heat up before we know it, so I am making the most of these cooler ‘perfect for soup’ nights whilst I can. This recipe is the easiest pumpkin soup I have ever made… and it’s delicious too!

Apricot Chicken – this recipe comes together in under an hour, and adds an interesting flavoursome twist to more traditional chicken meals. If you don’t have fresh apricots on hand, you can alternate them with dried pitted apricots and apricot jam.

Chicken and Roast Pumpkin Pasta Bake – this is a good weekend meal because it does take a bit of time to prepare, but I assure you it’s worth the extra effort. If you’re wanting a short cut I would suggest alternating the chicken breast for a ready made BBQ chicken instead.

Left Overs – it’s nights like these that make me realise why I always cook more and freeze it. The family had an easy dinner night eating left overs and heating up meals that I had on hand in the freezer.


Homemade Donuts – a decadent little treat to finish the week off with.
