While we’ve had our hands full since our son Noah arrived, one thing we’ve been pretty disciplined on is creating weekly meal plans.

It’s helped ensure that we’ve eaten well, despite having to juggle a lot more. I’ve decided it’s high time I share them with you guys, so here is the first of my weekly meal plans- 5 recipes for dinners throughout the week! If you want to get the accompanying shopping list make sure to subscribe for free to my newsletter.
I posted about this on instagram and it was great to hear the interest you guys have in meal planning and the struggles so many people go through getting a decent dinner to the table! This week’s meal plan is made up of some of my favourite recipes and hopefully some new family favourites for you and yours! Have a great week and happy cooking!

1. MONDAY: Flavour Bomb Salad

The days of soggy, uninspiring salads are long gone and if you ever needed proof, it’s this little beauty – my flavour bomb salad. It’s packed with the punchy heat from the chorizo and salty squidginess from the halloumi, making it delicious and satisfying enough for a midweek meal.

2.  TUESDAY: Piri Piri Chicken

Thanks to Nandos, Piri Piri Chicken is now seriously popular although I’ve loved this Portuguese marinade for a long time! Don’t limit yourself to just using it on chicken though – it’s great on meat, fish and veg. In fact, I highly recommend you make extra because if you’re anything like me, you’ll want to smother everything in it!

3. WEDNESDAY: Fish Tacos

Fish tacos are a Californian classic, taking inspiration from wonderful Mexican heat and spice. They make a truly different feast to serve to friends – just put everything on the table and let everyone invent their ultimate taco! If you don’t want to fire up the barbecue, the fish can easily be cooked on the griddle pan.

4. THURSDAY: Green Bean, Potato & Pesto Lasagne

Lasagne is one of those classic Italian dishes which has made a name for itself across the world. With a rich meat sauce, layers of creamy bechamel, pasta and cheese, it’s hard to resist. That said, I was really excited to come across this lighter version made with green beans and potatoes. Shortcut ingredients like fresh pasta and pesto make this a super speedy dinner to rustle up on a weekday.

5. FRIDAY: Buffalo Chicken with Homemade Fries

What better way to celebrate the beginning of the weekend than with this beast of a meal? We’re talking smokey, spicy, sticky marinade, rosemary-scented chips and slaw for added crunch. Using the whole chicken here makes this super easy and economical. Plus, whether it’s breast, thigh or leg, everyone gets their favourite bit. Winner winner chicken dinner!
