Weekly Meal Plan #11

It’s getting cooler here in Australia which means I like to make more winter-style meals and dishes. I enjoy mixing up my dishes during the week so that I’m not making a similar meal two or three nights in a row. Meal planning helps me ensure that I have variety during my week and I can make sure that my family isn’t chicken every night!

Here is Erin’s weekly plan, she is a lovely reader of mine. Erin is a mum of 3, a girl, 7, boy just turned 5 & a baby who has just turned 3. She works part time – busy lady! I hope you can find some meals in Erin’s plan.

MEAL PLANNING TIP

Family favourite meals – make a list of each family members favourite dinners. Ask them some questions like below to prompt you to have a good list of 20 or more dinner ideas:
