A Week of Dinner Ideas

After a long day, the last thing many of us feel like when we get home is wasting time worrying about what’s for dinner.  Who else has started making a family meal only to discover a vital ingredient is missing?  Wouldn’t it be great to already know what you are going to make for your family and even have some of the prep done beforehand?  We know as parents, time is precious so with this in mind, we have put together a week of meals your entire family will enjoy.  At the beginning of the week all you will need to do is check your pantry, fridge and freezer for ingredients you already have before heading to the supermarket to buy everything you need for your family meals for the upcoming week.

Many of us only use our barbecues on the weekend, why not put it to use and start the week right with these easy BBQ Coriander and Pepper Prawns.  These prawns taste great served with a simple garden salad that even the kids will love them!

She has a super sweet tooth and enjoying a slice of cake (or two) is one of her guilty indulgences. As a Mum of two little boys, when she isn't creating fun activities for the kids or breaking up arguments over toy trucks and cars, you will find her in the kitchen baking up a storm - or hiding in the pantry with the latest cooking magazine and a hot cup of coffee!
