Both were easy to make, incredibly tasty and most importantly very popular with all four children! I find looking at other family weekly menu plans great inspiration for new meals for the family.
You might not notice that with what has been chosen this week though! It is all very basic and child friendly food this week, still inspired from what vegetables are in season.
Monday: Fried Rice (Recipe Attached)
Baking: White Chocolate Chip Muffins (Recipe Attached)
Tuesday: Zucchini Slice
Wednesday: Sausage and Vegetables
Thursday: Spaghetti Bolognaise
Friday: Choose your own meal (Selecting from what is still lurking in the fridge.)
Saturday: Pumpkin Soup (Made and frozen last week as we ended up going out to dinner with visiting family.)
Sunday: Beef Chutney Casserole
I have included the shopping list for this week’s menu plan as an excel file. The below paragraphs explain what is in the attached excel file below.
It contains three separate spreadsheets. The first is named “Complete Grocery’ and it lists by supermarket aisle all the ingredients that are needed to cook the family meals for this week.
The second spreadsheet is named “Ingredient By Meal’ and it lists the ingredients that are required for the family by each individual meal this week. I have also left on the aisle and aisle subsection in this spreadsheet for reference.
The third spreadsheet is named “Menu Plan” and is a modified version of the menu plan that I print and place on the fridge. I have a notes section, that I like to populate with any activities that are likely to impact the evening meal routine.
