What should we cook for dinner?
The one question that most mums find themselves asking every single day.
The easiest way I like to plan our family dinners is:
On a Sunday, I sit down with the calendar and plan the week ahead – which nights is everyone home, which nights are MC and/or I out (for business dinners, bookclub, date night etc) and which nights are we home late and we have less time to plan and cook etc.
My go to meal/dinner plan is:
Monday: Roast chicken, lamb or beef
Tuesday: Red meat (lamb chops or pork sausages)
Wednesday: Fish (hake, tuna or fish cakes) or pasta (spaghetti bolognaise, macaroni and cheese or prawn and chorizo pasta)
Thursday: Chicken (chicken pieces, chicken schnitzel, chicken wraps or chicken soup)
Friday: Fun family dinner (homemade pizza or burgers)
How do you plan your evening meals and what are your favourite go-to dinners?
