One reader has shared her weekly family meal plan packed with simple yet delicious dinners that helped get her family through a busy week.
This week’s reader meal plan comes courtesy of Emma, who had a busy week planned so opted for simple foods that everyone loves. Emma writes their meal plan up on a Sunday, which is a good reminder to create your meal plan on the day that best suits you! Don’t feel like your weekly plan must run from Monday to Sunday – pick the day that best works with your payday and grocery shopping day.

Apricot Chicken – this recipe can be thrown together in under half an hour. It sounds very fresh and flavoursome too – I love apricot chicken!

Tuna Bake – tuna bake is a quick and simple meal that can be easily jazzed up with additional veggies or a side salad. If you have a little more time to spare consider trying out my Curried Tuna Rice Pie (it’s delicious!) and can also be made as a salmon pie if you prefer.

Chicken Wings – I love the tip from the below recipe: ‘chill the wings in the fridge for 2 hours so the skin dries out and the chicken wings get insanely crispy in the oven’. Crispy chicken wings are so tasty! I like to serve my chicken wings with rice to make them go even further.

Zucchini Slice – this is a quick meal to prep (can prep in under 15 minutes!) and it freezes well too, so it pays to make a double batch and save one for another night. I like to add bacon to my slice but this could easily be left out for a vegetarian alternative.
Fish and Salad – fish cakes are a nice way to add variety to your seafood meals. You can create your fish cakes from scratch, or if you’re needing a quicker option purchase them from the frozen section at the supermarket. Team with a fresh salad and a yoghurt and dill sauce and you’ve got yourself a pretty tasty dinner.
BBQ – family BBQs are the best! We cook a lot of our food on the barbecue in the warmer months – kebabs, burgers, sausages, salmon, the list goes on. Combine with a nice salad, some baked veggies or crunchy bread and you have yourself a pretty delicious dinner packed with variety.

Eggs – scrambled, fried, poached or boiled eggs… it doesn’t matter how your family likes to eat their eggs, each option is quick and fuss-free! Eggs make for a perfect easy Sunday night dinner option.

Banana Chocolate Energy Balls – when Emma shared her meal plan she didn’t mention any baking so I thought I’d share my baking. With school back I am baking mainly snacks that the kids can pop into their lunchboxes. These energy ball are perfect for that as they’re nut-free, plus they keep my kid’s minds charged throughout the school day.
