You won’t find processed food in your family meals this week if you follow my family meal plan. Even the tomato sauce is homemade and you pay for real whole fish coated in fresh breadcrumbs not mashed up from any number of fishes. Why not join the growing club of meal planners who are reclaiming control of their kitchens and loving every minute.
Monday – Bolognese, Spinach and Pasta
This is a good stable meal with all the right ingredients to provide a wholesome meal. A yoghurt or custard and fruit dessert would make the meal perfect.
Tuesday – Turkey, Bean & vegetable stew
Don’t keep turkey just for Christmas.
Wednesday – Chicken Fajita Wraps
A quick and easy meal, loved by every member in my family and I’m sure in yours. Always let the children get involved, whether its coating the fish or filling their own wrap. There’s a job for everyone.
Thursday – Breaded Fillet Fish Fingers with Champ, fresh or frozen vegetable of your choice and Homemade Tomato Sauce
Homemade fish fingers are a whole lot nicer than bought, start the children right with fresh fish. Serve with your own homemade tomato sauce and champ, a potato dish spiked with finely diced spring onions. To balance the meal, don’t forget the veggies.
Friday – Spicy Veggie Burger with Salad – Dip In Dip Out
Handy little start to the weekend. These spicy veggie burgers are wholesome and filling. I sometimes add a little mince beef if I feel we need a little more energy in our systems.
