Struggling to think of meals to add to my meal planner this month and wondered if you could share the meals you make your family on a regular basis to hopefully provide some inspiration....!

We are eating a lot of frittata at the moment. Good way to use up cooked potatoes and odd bits of veg, quick, healthy and DD loves it!

Usually always make...
Sweet n tangy curry
Tuna pasta bake
Something with noodles (stir fry, Thai spiced mince etc)
Something with potato (chips, mash, croquettes etc)

Always try to make sure I have at least one meal with rice, pasta and potato so it's not all the same.
