Growing up as a child in the 70s and 80s, traditional dinner fare consisted of meat and three veg. The only pasta we ate was spaghetti bolognaise and there was not a risotto or stir fry in sight.

This week’s menu plan could easily have been one from my own childhood. The children chose all the meals and these are definitely some of their favourites. As I reminisce with my friends about eating meat and three veg as a staple, I often think that my kids in the future will be saying the same of pasta and stir fries!

I would love to hear what was traditional fare in your house growing up!

Here is the family menu plan for the week:

Monday: Tuna Mornay

Tuesday: Chicken Schnitzel and Vegetables

Wednesday: Fried Rice

Thursday: Spaghetti Bolognaise

Friday: Left Overs

Saturday: Porcupine Meatballs

Sunday: Sausage and Vegetables
