Weekly Meal Plan 17th February 2020

Sharing is caring!

A weekly family meal plan filled with delicious, easy to make family dinner recipes and meal ideas. New meal plan published every week.

I just find meal planning helps me to be more organised and it saves me time and money.

Family life is often hectic so meal planning just makes my life so much easier.

WEEKLY MEAL PLAN 

Monday – Pasta with tomato & basil sauce

Roast Tomato & Basil Pasta is perfect for meat free Monday – it’s super easy to make and a recipe we all love.

Baby tomatoes are roasted in the oven with olive oil, garlic and herbs until squishy, soft and sweet.

I usually serve this with fresh spaghetti and half a ball of mozzarella per person with a drizzle of olive oil.

Tuesday – Roast Vegetables with Halloumi and Flatbreads

roasted Mediterranean style vegetables, five ways to eat roasted veg, roast veg traybake, easy family food from daisies and pie

Roast Mediterranean vegetables are one of my favourite things – once you’ve roasted a tray of vegetables there loads of ways you can use them.

Or like I’m cooking this week – Roast Mediterranean Vegetables with Harissa marinated halloumi tucked into warmed flatbreads with salad. Delicious!

Wednesday – Pork & Cider Casserole

Pork and Cider Casserole is a great recipe for cooking in the slow cooker and slow cooker recipes always work well.

They’re especially handy on busy days when you really want dinner to just take care of itself.

The Pork & Cider Slow Cooker Casserole is flavoured with thyme and packed with fresh vegetables.

It’s delicious served with creamy mashed potatoes.

Thursday – Slow Cooker Peri Peri Chicken Stew

Slow Cooker Peri Peri Chicken Stew is a total hit here.

A spicy chicken stew that the kids just loved served with wedges, mash or rice and a side of homemade Nando’s style peas.

Friday – Tapas

Friday is great for tapas – I’ll cook up a selection of little dishes – prawns, chorizo in red wine, aubergine and tomato stew, patatas bravas and grab some great sourdough bread for mopping up the juices.

Saturday – Sea Bass Tray Bake

Fish tray bakes are really easy to make and taste amazing – think of it as a healthy twist on fish & chips.

I thinly slice potatoes and layer them into a roasting tin, scatter over lots of halved baby plum tomatoes and black olives.

I add in garlic and lemon zest and juice and season well with salt and ground black pepper.

Once the potatoes have cooked through and are tender – add the sea bass fillets on top of the potatoes and cook them through – scatter with chopped flat leaf parsley and serve.

DELICIOUS!

Sunday – Shawarma Chicken

slow cooker shawarma chicken shredded and served with salad and yogurt dressing on a warmed flatbread.

I’ll be using the slow cooker again this week to make this DELICIOUS shawarma chicken.

Marinate the chicken and then cook in the slow cooker – once it’s done just pull the chicken with two forks and load onto flatbreads with salad and sauces.
