Family Meal Plan 8th October 2018

Sharing is caring!

A weekly meal plan filled with easy to make, delicious family dinner recipes – the slow cooker is doing lots of the cooking this week – during the autumn and winter this is definitely my favourite way to make dinner. 

Monday – Creamy Chicken & Chips

I’ll be throwing chicken thigh fillets, wine, garlic, mushrooms and shallots in the slow cooker – then stirring through cream at the end.

I’ll be serving with Gastro Chips and green veggies. 

weekly meal plan - Monday - creamy chicken and chips, Tuesday - spicy garlic prawns, Wednesday - slow cooker sausage casserole, Thursday - Swedish meatballs, Friday - pizza express, Saturday - picky bits, Sunday - beef and ale stew

Tuesday – Spicy Garlic Prawns

I’ll be frying up king prawns with fresh chillies and lemon and serving with french fries, garlic mayo dip and a bistro salad….. the kids are having fish fingers and mash! 

Wednesday – Slow Cooker Sausage Casserole

Another slow cooker dinner – I’ll cook sausages, onions, celery and carrots with beef stock, cider and herbs.

I’ll serve spooned into baked potatoes. 

Thursday – Swedish Meatballs 

I’m thinking…

Swedish meatballs with tomato sauce and pasta OR I might make cheesy mashed potatoes, braised red cabbage and probably sticky onion gravy.
