Healthy Family Weekly Dinner Menu – Feb Fortnight 2

Don’t worry about menu plans this week, I’ve got it sorted. And just a heads-up – I have already made the Penne and I substituted the herbs with Asian greens just because I didn’t find any herbs in the market (I was late *face palm*) and I also used dried shiitake mushrooms from an Asian grocer…HOWEVER, it was a big hit in my family. The kids devoured it, hubby had seconds and everyone had it for lunch the next day. I’ll have to make it again and share my variations here on the blog. How’s that for a vegetarian meal? Mmmm!

What I love about what’s for dinner

  • Delicious vegetarian dishes that even kids would love features twice this week
  • Get in spirit of the Chinese New Year Celebrations with the Longevity Noodles Dish
  • Get adventurous with Okra in the Okra Stir Fry topped with a delicious pan fried salmon
  • Red meat features once this week in a warming soup

Menu Plan

 

I use one menu per fortnight as this allows me to shop and cook in bulk – this means I can serve leftovers most nights of the second week and we also schedule take-away pizza on one night and a light dinner (noodles, sandwiches or beans on toast) on another night. I find this helps me cope as a busy working mom with three kids as I take it easy the second week, put my feet up a bit and only shop for top-up on milk and fruit. I use the free time to garden, take the kids to the library, sleep in and play board games with the kids.
