How do you handle the grocery shopping? I plan my visits with military precision. First I map out my week’s meals, then I write a detailed list before hitting the aisles. (Confession: I may also look forward to the quiet time and my weekly treat of a sugar-free Mother while I push the trolley a little/way too much …)
Between work and family, there’s no time to fuss over weeknight dinners, so quick and easy are my keywords. I also try to include to a mince dish (for economy) and a salmon dish (for health) each week.
I’m a little addicted to trying new things and my kids are getting better with age at eating them!
Here are five dinners I’m planning to cook this week:
Monday: Turkey meatballs with spaghetti
This dish includes wholemeal breadcrumbs and spaghetti so I feel a little more virtuous serving it, especially if there are steamed veggies on the side.
Tuesday: Honey nut chicken stir-fry
