A delicious 7-day weekly meal plan that’s perfect for the family in need of easy dinner ideas to get through a busy week of school and work.
I have to be honest. I didn’t make all the recipes in this week’s family meal plan, but I promise I have a good excuse. I was using my family as guinea pigs to trial recipes for some secret squirrel business I’m working on. Okay, I’ll give you a little more information… I’m releasing a new cookbook soon (*squeal*) and can barely contain my excitement! I will tell you more about this very soon, but until then please enjoy the delicious meals in this week’s family meal plan.

Sausages and Veggies – I’m a big fan of keeping it simple, and you don’t get much more simple than meat and three veg. My family loves to have sausages, mash potato and a side of beans and carrots. Easy peasy.
Chicken Stir-Fry – a stir fry can be thrown together pretty quickly and is a great way to up your daily dose of veggies. I often chop up the veggies and chicken in the morning so they are ready to be cooked up when I get home from work.

Vegetarian Fritters – I like to have the occasional night off eating meat and these quinoa and frittata fritters are super yummy! We team them with some avocado, salad, tomatoes and a little smoked salmon (not vegetarian I know, but so tasty with these fritters!).
BBQ Chicken and Chips – a hot BBQ chicken from the supermarket, some fresh bread rolls and a few home-cooked chips might not be the healthiest meal but it’s certainly a nice treat every now and again. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous you could even try your hand at the homemade roast chicken recipe below.

Noodles with Veggies – 2-minute noodles are so versatile (and easy!). Sometimes we make noodles and mix veggies in for an easy dinner, but this night we had a few of my lunch box bites (made with noodles and perfect for dinners as well as lunches!) which we teamed with a simple side salad.
Thai Beef Salad – I try to eat salad at least once a week so am always on the hunt for yummy easy salads that I can give a whirl. This one looks delicious and I can’t wait to give it a try soon.

Chicken Roast with Veggies – this meal is so simple and needs only one dish (yay for limited washing up!). I love to fill my home with the smells of something tasty cooking on a Sunday afternoon – it means the whole family is busting for dinner by the time I plate it up.
White Chocolate and Raspberry Muffins – my family all go a little crazy for these muffins! They are delicious and soft, plus they freeze really well – perfect for making an extra batch to pop in the kids’ school lunchboxes.
