15-Minute Thai Chicken Burger – burgers always go down well in my house, and the additional of Thai salad in this recipe is really tasty – plus they are super quick to make!

Mexican Pasta Bake – I made a double batch of my Mexican Pasta Bake to cover me for two nights! It’s so easy and delicious, and I love having a spare meal on hand for nights when life is a bit crazy.

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!).
Find my Zucchini and Vegetable Slice recipe on page 103 of my Lunch Box Recipe Cookbook.
Steak and 3 Veg – can you go wrong with meat and three veg? It’s such a simple wholesome dinner idea that ticks so many boxes! I made steak with steamed veggies and mash and it left the troops very happy and full – winning!

Potato Wedges with Sweet Chilli and Sour Cream – the perfect Friday night dinner – particularly if you’re planning a movie night with the family! You can even take your wedges to the next level by loading them up with avocado, bacon and shallots.

Grilled Vegetable and Haloumi Wraps – I love all the colours in this meal, and the addition of garlic yoghurt and toasty warm pita breads really makes for a tasty, delicious, and healthy dinner idea.

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.

Banana Yoghurt Loaf Cake – an avid follower of The Organised Housewife shared this recipe with me a few weeks ago and it’s simply delicious – thanks Les!
