This weeks meal plan


Chicken and Bacon Casserole in the Slow Cooker

This truly is an easy slow cooker dinner, you can’t get much simpler.  It’s a matter of adding some diced chicken, bacon and onion to the slow cooker along with a can of soup and pour in some wine to taste.  I serve this with pasta, but if you really want to you could add some diced potato into the slow cooker then you will have an instant meal when finished.



Pork chops with mashed sweet potato and steamed vegetables


Baked Fish with Coconut Rice and salad

Infuse a simple fish fillet with the taste of Thailand. Our lime and ginger marinade tastes perfect teamed with sweet coconut rice



Lamb rissoles, cauliflower puree, steamed carrot and broccoli.

We often have mashed potato, the kids love it and it’s a great side to any meat and 3 vegetable style dinner.  However lately I have been trying to come up with alternatives. This cauliflower puree was delicious and is going to remain one of my go-to side dish recipes as the kids really enjoyed it!


Homemade Fried Rice



Dinner out with family


Roast vegetable and fetta salad with BBQ chook

This is the perfect meal to make when you need to do a clean out of your vegetable crisper or you are short on time.

Bliss balls for kids lunchbox (their school does not have a nut restriction)


Milo and Coconut Cookies

I love finding recipes that can be made straight from the pantry.  By that I mean no need to buy something special for the grocery store.  This simple and tasty milo and coconut cookie recipe is just that.  I quickly made a batch of these so the kids had something to snack on before an afternoon at karate.  It was really hard to stop at one, they were that good.
