Plan your weeknight meals with ideas and recipes, that are fresh from the kitchen made with fresh and local ingredients.  I hope you find this dinner meal plan useful and let us know how you managed your week. Most of these recipes serve 4 to 5 people — we are a family of 2 adults, 2 pre teen boys and a house help. And with all the cooking, we very rarely have leftovers. If you have a larger family, you might want to consider making a larger quantity or if you have a smaller family then you can reduce it to half.
