This week is a crazily busy week for me! Report Card writing, Kindy dress up day, an extra day of work at school, so I am taking the easy way out! This week I am using as many “box” meals as I can! My theory is….Sunday prepare all the fillings, cheese, carrot, lettuce, tomato, capsicum, onion, cucumber and salsa. Then each day just serve the dinner according to the instructions on the box! It is just so easy to vary these recipes for little ones as well! Most of these recipes require sour cream or yoghurt and by using similar recipes over the week none of these ingredients go to waste!
Monday – Lamb Wraps – ALDI Box. – $3.99
These are delicious and a family favourite. We serve the kids meal with rice on the side and some yummy carrot sticks to dip in tzatziki sauce! Of for something different use the boxes contents to create some yummy lamb skewers and serve them like the image above!
Tuesday – Beef Tacos – ALDI Box – $3.99
The kids love using the taco shells to scoop up the mince! This is a messy one so be prepared.
Wednesday – Chicken Burritos – ALDI Box – $3.99
I steam some broccoli and green beans and serve the chicken with rice and vegies for the kids!
Thursday – Beef Fajitas – Woolworths – $4.99
Using up the last of the sour cream for this one! This has aways been a family favourite!
Friday – Fast Food Friday!!! Taking this one from Mummy Smiles!!!
These meals are cheap, quick and easy. They all use similar ingredients which really helped our grocery budget as we weren’t buying a hundred different ingredients for each weekly meal. Most importantly they are all so easy to adapt to feed the kids, its all about simplicity at our place!
So do you eat meals “out of the box”?
