What's for dinner? Meal Planning Monday

Our meals have a twist this week!
The heating element on our oven has died and we can't get it fixed (by the hubby) until at least Friday!
So this week all our meals are made on the stove top, bbq or slowcooker!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff with Rice Cooker - Rice and Steamed Greens.
Simply pop in the slow cooker at lunch time!  
Love getting my two bench top cookers going! Sooo easy.
For added veggies I just steam up the kids favourites Broccolini and Zucchini!

Lamb Chops with Fried Risotto balls.
My kids LOVE rice!
Whilst on holidays my mum whipped up these delicious risotto balls filled with cheese!
So I am hoping to attempt them!
I have all day Tuesday with only one child at home to get it right!!!

Slow Cooker Honey and Mustard Chicken with corn and zucchini 
This is a family favourite

Ham and Cheese Tortellini with
Cheese, Bacon and Chicken Sauce
This is a quick and easy dinner after a long day at work and also makes enough for leftovers the next day!
These are both Latina products from Woolworths that are on special this week!

BBQ Steak, sausages and grilled zucchini, eggplant, capsicum and potato 
The hubby is whipping up this one as I am at work and he has the day off!

Celebration Lasagne and Garlic Bread
By Saturday we will have the oven fixed!  This cold weather has me craving lasagne!

Left overs!

No meat free meals for us this week!
But if you wanted to you could make the tortellini with ricotta tortellini and a tomato based sauce
and the Lasagne could be a delicious vegetable lasagne!
What's for dinner at your place this week?


  1. Your meal plan sounds amazing this week! Would you mind sharing the recipes or providing a link to where I could find them on the net?
    - in particular the slow cooker honey mustard chicken, fried risotto balls and the slowcooker beef strog. That would be fantastic if you could.

    Thanks, I absolutely love your blog. :D

  2. Yummo!

    Need to know about those risotto balls!

  3. Looks great! We love those Latina Pastas. We buy them when they are on special too. We had one for a quick lunch today. It says serves two but feeds to adults and two hungry toddlers. The Honey mustard chicken in the slow cooker sounds yummy. Where did you get the recipe? I would love to try it.
