Planning my weekly meals is one of my least favourite things to do. I spend ages trolling the internet looking for inspiration for child-friendly recipes. However, I do find that planning our weekly meals saves us time, money, waste and ensures we eat a little better.
I recently asked a rather large group of local mums for some inspiration for meal ideas. If I’m honest, I was rather humbled by the things they’re cooking their kids and it put my efforts to shame. Below, I have compiled a list of their favourite meal ideas with suggested recipes.
Homemade chicken and apple burgers with sweet potato mash
Spanish Chicken tonight and rice
Rice with chicken in cinnamon and Bechamel sauce
Surprise chicken (tomato, courgette, pepper, chicken stew) with rice
Lemon marinated chicken grilled with sweet potato mash/chips and veg
Chicken with a korma curry sauce and noodles
Toad in the hole gravy and a dollop of cheesy mash with broccoli or peas
Teriyaki salmon and new pots
Simple pasta with peas, butter and grated parmesan
Jamie Oliver’s ‘Hungover Noodles’
Thank you to all the SAMS for your suggestions. If you have any other meal ideas you would like to share please do add them in the comments.
