MPM – Back To School

Healthy and Simple Recipes

Image by

After a very quick two weeks, we are back to school on Monday. Personally I could do with another week away from the school and after school running around!

The family meals for the next few weeks are going to be very easy to cook and quick to prepare. This term we have after school activities four out of the five nights. This is really not desirable, but with the three children at school all doing swimming and then one other activity, that is just the way it falls. 🙁

You might also notice that for the next couple of weeks pumpkin soup will be on the menu. When we went away for Easter in the country, my dad gave me a very large sack of pumpkins. Pumpkin soup is a favourite with my kids, so we will be using up the pumpkins that way.

Our Family Menu Plan for this week.

Baking: Anzac Biscuits – ANZAC day is this Saturday!

Monday: Pumpkin Soup

Tuesday: Fried Rice

If you like the look of this family menu plan, then you might like to use The Planning With Kids Free Menu Planner. With the menu planner you can select your meals for the week and print our your own shopping list.
