Weekly Family Meal Plan #99

A 7-day family meal plan packed with hearty, wholesome, home-cooked dinners that are perfect for cold nights at home with loved ones.

Life has suddenly become busier! School has started back for my two eldest and I’m no longer working from home, which has meant my days have become a lot more hectic. Meal planning is so important for me when I have busy weeks like this! It helps take the guess-work and stress out of dinner-time and makes doing my weekly grocery shop a lot easier. If you’re wanting more yummy, wholesome meals similar to these ones, be sure to check out my (just released!!) Hearty Dinners Recipe Cookbook.

Chicken and Roast Pumpkin Pasta Bake – this bake is great for a busy week. I make it ahead of time so that it’s ready to go when I get home from work. To save time this week I used a BBQ chicken instead of poaching it myself.

Steak, Mashed Potato and Veggies – this is the ultimate comfort meal for cold nights! Steak and mash takes only moments to whip up, and my whole family devours this dinner.

Slow Cooker Spaghetti and Meatballs – slow cooker recipes are fabulous for busy days, because they’re normally pretty quick to prep and can then just bubble away whilst you do other things. I actually started this first thing in the morning and it was done by the time I left for work. When I got home all I needed to do was heat it up and we were good to go!

Salmon and Cream Pasta – creamy pastas are so easy to quickly throw together. This salmon and cream pasta is fresh and tasty, and takes less than 30 minutes to plate up.

Chicken Noodle Soup – when the weather starts to cool down (it’s been chilly here on the Gold Coast!) I like to get more veggies into my family to make sure their immune system is strong. This soup certainly packs a punch in the immune-boosting department!

Frittata – I try to serve up a meat-free dish occasionally (my family eats a lot of meat), and a frittata is such an easy option. It’s also a good way to use up any veggies that are kicking around in the bottom of the fridge.

Savoury Mince on Toast – a versatile and super easy dinner that’s perfect for a lazy Sunday night. I served our savoury mince on toast, but it could just as easily be served with mashed potatoes and veggies.

Cinnamon Scrolls – my family love when I make these scrolls! They are especially delicious to have for morning tea on a cold day with a hot cuppa – yum yum!
