Mid Week Meal Recipes

What to cook for dinner tonight? This collection of mid-week meal recipes will provide some ideas.

As tough as it can be at times to find variation, I do find that having set days to cook/eat certain types of food can help not only with budgeting and planning but takes the stress out of the eternal problem of what to cook for dinner. For example: Mondays we try to keep a meat-free night – allocating it as the day for pastas (lasagna, gnocchi, etc), Tuesdays is a rice bowl type dish night with lots of little sides, Wednesday we try to have a take out night or my husband cooks, Thursdays are market day so we’ll always have fresh salmon with a fresh salad or veggies, and on Friday’s we’ll often have a meat dish. On the weekends it’s more of a wild card situation, but our Sunday evenings are generally reserved for a chicken roast.

In terms of mid-week meals, I’ve only included meals that are simple to whip up, and included some recipes for side dishes which I find is often what creates the magic or variation to common dishes, especially if you’re having a piece of fish or meat.

Enjoy this round up of mid-week meals.

Tip: If you can, cook extra or double quantities so you have lunch sorted the next day or left overs for the next night that you can serve with a fresh salad.
