Zucchini Slice with Salad – this is a really lovely light and fresh meal for warmer evenings (it’s also great for freezing and popping in the kid’s school lunchboxes as a healthy alternative to sandwiches!).

Fish and Chips by the Beach – finishing off the weekend with my family on the beach eating dinner from our local fish and chip shop is the best! If you can’t make it to the beach, fish and chips at home is just as yummy – just a tad less scenic.
