Weekly Meal Plan #220

Meal planning not only helps my sanity when I am tired at the end of a long day, but it saves us money and reduces food waste. Here’s our weekly meal plan for this week!

BENEFITS OF MEAL PLANNING

Each week I plan my meals for the following week. This is called meal or menu planning. It really is a simple task that takes 5-10 minutes. The money and time this saves me throughout my week makes it well worth the effort.

MONDAY

Grilled salmon with feta and mint pearl couscous salad – This salad takes only minutes to make. It is perfect to put together while the salmon is cooking.

TUESDAY

Pork Chops and vegetables – I cook the pork chops under the grill or get hubby to cook them on the BBQ.

wednesday

Eggs on toast – There is something about Wednesdays (hump day)… I usually like a simple easy meal on this day.

THURSDAY

Spaghetti and meatballs – I like to make my own meatballs. However, when I’m time poor, ready made ones in the meat section at the grocery store are just as good.

friday

LSA chicken with beetroot – This is a fast and healthy option for a Friday night!

SATURDAY

Homemade Fried Rice – Simple fried rice that is easy to make – mmm.  Depending on time, I may poach some chicken breast to add in with it along with extra vegetables in the fridge.  Not only does it help to stretch the dish further, but uses up food to clear out my fridge ready for my weekly grocery shop on a Sunday.

Roast pork with all the trimmings – Funny fact: the first time I made a roast I was 30 something.  I thought they were hard and time consuming, BUT they aren’t really and this recipe is actually super easy.

BAKING

White Chocolate and Macadamia Muffins – White Chocolate and Macadamia Muffins are a super quick and easy recipes and ooh so tasty!!
