An easy and tasty week’s worth of recipes that will help you create a family meal plan that saves you time, money, and a whole lot of unnecessary stress!
Life is busy and as parents our days are often incredibly full. Once you deduct the energy needed for school drop off/pick up, work, house chores, after school activities, and all the other things that seem to fall on our to-do list, there’s very little energy left to whip together a dinner. That’s where meal planning comes in! It helps make my weeks run smooth by removing that end of the day dinner chaos – not to mention the timely mid-week supermarket trips. Hopefully this week’s family meal plan helps inject a little calmness into your week.

Lemon and Coriander Lamb Skewers – these easy-to-make lamb skewers make a fresh and tasty addition to any BBQ! We had them with a simple garden side salad and some crunchy bread.

Quick Beef and Corn Pasta Bake – my family eat this meal every few months. It’s easy to make (and can even be made ahead of time), and is easily jazzed up with additional ingredients. A reader watched me cook this on Instagram a few months ago and suggested I add pineapple pieces and peas.

Chicken Stir-fry with Rice – this is a healthy fresh dinner that can be whipped up in just 25 minutes. I made extra of this meal and took it to work with me for lunch the next day – and it was just as delicious as the night before!
Frozen Fish Portions and Vegetables – fish is an easy meal that makes a regular appearance on the dinner table in my home. I tend to purchase whatever fish is on special at Woolworths and serve with veggies, a yummy salad or a few chips.

Homemade Pizza – nothing beats homemade pizza! I love to make mine from scratch with homemade pizza dough – it’s more affordable plus the kids and I have a great time making the dough together.

Pumpkin, Bacon and Feta Frittata – this is a really yummy and light dinner option that also makes for great lunchtime leftovers the next day. I served this frittata with a simple salad.
Roast Beef and Veg – I love a good roast on a Sunday night. I can have a lazy afternoon at home whilst it cooks away and fills my home with delicious aromatic flavours – by the time dinner rolls around, everyone is so excited to get stuck in!

Raspberry and Coconut Bread – this recipe is great for a few reasons. First and foremost it’s super tasty, but it can also be made with a simple mixing bowl and spoon (no need to pull out the heavy mixer) which makes clean up a breeze! It’s also great for freezing and popping in the kid’s school lunchboxes.
