Weekly Family Meal Plan #87

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

This family meal plan will help take the chaos out of your week, and breathe a little calmness into dinner time instead – plus it looks really delicious!

My weeks can get very busy, and I find that creating a meal plan – even if it’s just a guide – helps to take the stress and chaos out of my week. A 7 day meal plan allows me to organise my groceries around this plan too, which prevents last minute trips to the supermarket.

Slow Cooker Asian Chicken Salad – I love using my slow cooker because it really takes the hassle out of dinner times for me, but I don’t want to eat hot dishes in summer. This meal offers me the convenience of my slow cooker, but with the crisp freshness of a dish that suits the warmer weather perfectly.
