Weekly Meal Plan

You may have noticed that I like to cook.
My latest goal has been to try out new recipes, hoping to add some to the pile of family favourites.

I thought I'd share our weekly meal plan for this week with you.
This week I am trying to empty out some of the food we have in our freezer.
Since we moved we couldn't bring our lovely big freezer with us so we are back to the tiny one with our fridge.
This can create problems since I like to buy meat when it is marked down and freeze it and my dear husband likes to buy tubs of ice cream :)
So this week our meals look like this:

SUNDAY: Vegetarian Boscaiola (Use meat free "bacon")

Savoury "Mince" (Using my vegetarian nut meat, very healthy stuff) with rice.

Honey, Sesame & Garlic Chicken Drumsticks (marked down to $2.60 for 6) With Rice and Veges.

Burgers With The Lot (Baking fresh bread rolls for these)

Fish Fillets With Roast Veges

Chicken/Vege Laksa

Salmon Steaks With Rice and Steamed Veges

Of course I also like to do a little snack food cooking with Eve, it helps keep her busy, gives her something new to try and keeps the hubby happy too!
Last week I made these:

The recipe is for a slice but I wanted single serves to avoid the massive pieces my hubby dishes up.
The recipe is HERE and if you are confused at what wheat breakfast biscuits are they are an Australian cereal but you can substitute corn flakes in instead and it is still super yummy.

Not everything is sweet though, I also made this to use up some ham:
Zucchini, Carrot and Ham Slice.
I added some cheese to give it a little more flavour.

I also like to make breakfast a little more tasty than just toast or cereal so this week I'll be making these Pear, Banana & Cinnamon Pikelets.
Though I do alter the recipe a little by using regular flour and adding an egg or two to help the batter hold and cook better.

Do you have any favourite recipes you'd like to share?
I'm looking for cheap and easy ones!
