Back with another instalment of meal planning! I’m loving eating heavier dishes like curries and bakes as it gets a bit cooler here in Australia. Erin has kindly shared her weekly meal plan for this week. She says she feels lost if she doesn’t do her meal planning for the week (I know what you mean Erin!). She is a mum of 3 and works part time. I hope you enjoy Erin’s weekly meal plan and find some helpful recipes in there for yourself. Don’t forget to share your meal plan below I have really enjoyed sharing some of your plans with the community too!
MEAL PLANNING TIP
Each week I am going to share one meal planning/grocery budget tip to help you through this process.
Visit the shops only once a week – One of the top benefits of meal planning is that you only visit the grocery store once each week. This will save you at the checkout as I can guarantee you if you visit the grocery store for a few quick items, you will always get extras. If you run out of something you need, add it to your shopping list to get at your next weekly shop.

Honey, Soy & Garlic Chicken Sausage Rolls – Hubby is away so again something easy & pack some for the kids lunch boxes the next day.

Steakette Works Burgers with gems – “Hubby picked up some yummy steakettes at a country butcher the other week when they were there for footy so I just froze the other half. All 3 have swimming Fri afternoons to this is perfect & easy.”
RECIPE: ‘The Full Works’ Burger
Quick Beef Curry – Erin didn’t mention a meal for Sunday but I think curries are a great dish in this cooler weather.
RECIPE: Quick Beef Curry
Avocado on toast with a boiled egg chopped up & chia seeds sprinkled on top – I love how Erin used a breakfast dish and turned it into a dinner. You could add some bacon, feta and tomato chutney for more flavours.
Chocolate Banana Muffins – Erin didn’t include a baking option this week but I thought I would add in these Chocolate Banana muffins. They are absolutely delicious and are so moist and banana-ry! They can be frozen and used in the kids’ lunchboxes.
