Weekly Family Meal Plan #115

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife
This weekly family meal plan is a hearty mix of wholesome and meaty dishes that comes courtesy of one of our lovely community members.
Every household is different – which means every meal plan is different. With every reader-influenced meal plan I blog about, I’m introduced to so many recipes with fabulous new flavours, food combinations and opportunities to bring them to The Organised Housewife family. One of our lovely community members, Maree, has inspired this week’s menu plan that is simply bursting with inspiration.

Steak and Salad – Incredibly tasty yet incredibly simple. This yummy steak and salad can be made with just about any salad toppings, making it adaptable to almost any family. With the kids’ help, Maree topped hers with avocado, beetroot and spinach.

Fettuccine Marinara – Maree made an incredible Italian dish that oozes delicious-ness and has the perfect combination  of savoury, saucy and delicious-ness. This weekly family meal dish is both aesthetically pleasing and super tasty.

Lamb Stir Fry – My Mongolian Lamb Stir Fry is an easy and yummy addition to a 7-day meal plan. Maree paired hers with rice and vegetables. This is a great meal for adding the veggies of your choice.

Fish and Soba Noodles – Maree’s delicate dish is the perfect way to get through the rest of the week. This is a yummy dish to pair with olives and a sprinkle of black sesame seeds.

Pork Ribs – Maree’s gorgeously glazed Pork Ribs are the perfect way to finish the school-week. You can buy pre-packaged pork ribs from your local butchery or supermarket. When making this with the kids, a few side dishes that I incorporate are a refreshing salad or homemade bread.

Chicken Parma – Maree is certainly not alone in plating up this Aussie classic! A parmi makes the perfect lazy Saturday meal. Pair it with a side salad or hot chips for a crowd pleasing feed the whole family will love!

Roast Pork Loin – I love a Sunday roast, and I can certainly second Maree’s choice to go with a flavoursome pork loin roast. The pork can slowly roast while the house is getting cleaned or whilst you’re playing with the kids.

Mango and Passionfruit Muffins– These muffins make for a a tasty sweet treat during the week, or pop them in the kids’ lunchboxes for a perfect addition to their school lunches.
