On the weekend over on facebook I mentioned that I was doing a quick meal plan and grocery list and a lovely reader Vanessa said she’d love to see the meal plan. So here you go. Usually I’d write it on the back of a used envelope (where the best things are written down of course) but the beauty of the blog is that I can share it with pictures and links to recipes.
Monday – Green pasta
We love our pasta here. This is gluten and dairy free but add some parmesan and regular pasta and you’re all good too
Tuesday – Cobb Salad
This is my favourite salad and the kids have some of the ingredients and love the chicken and bacon
Wednesday - zucchini and feta slice
Great with a side salad and some garlic bread or even buttered bread in a pinch.
Thursday – pasta fagiole in the thermomix
My kids love this recipe so much but hubby not so much. It uses basic ingredients like celery , tomato and chickpeas and we use a gluten free macaroni like san remo. Too easy.
Friday – quick quesadillas
We do spinach and feta as well as ham and pineapple. No surprises which ones the kids gobble up….yep ham and pineapple. Nice and easy for a friday night.
Saturday – vegetarian nachos
easy and fun. Say no more.
Sunday – a family roast
Who doesn’t love a roast on Sunday. I now need to do 2 chickens as we eat so much and then I get leftovers for the next day. Great to start the week with some delicious chicken and mayo sandwiches.
I hope that gives you a bit of dinner inspiration for the week. I usually add in a cookie and cake recipe too so that when I do the shopping I’m making sure I’ve got some snacks and baking covered. A few favourites are
