Weekly Family Meal Plan #116

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

This 7-day weekly meal plan is packed with crowd-pleasing dinner dishes that range from healthy and wholesome to traditional and tasty.

After doing more than one hundred weekly family meal plans, I feel I’ve grown as a mother, a cook, and as a businesswoman. Every time I create a new meal plan for my kids, I’m learning something new about food and excited to get into the kitchen to try out the new recipe. From Mexican to Chinese, this week’s family meal plan is packed full with quick and easy recipes that are savoury, filling, and most importantly affordable.

Lamb Rissoles with Veggies– The perfect, hearty meal to start the week. This is an original recipe of mine and I love when the gravy is oozing off the lamb with super tasty sides of mash and broccoli.

Beef Chow Mein – Slowly introduce your kids’ to spicy dishes with this Beef Chow Mein recipe. The curry flavour can be easily controlled with this recipe, so that as the kids get older the curry powder content can slowly increase too.

Salmon Fillet and Steamed Veg – A tasty salmon dish that’s quick to whip up! This meal is packed with flavour and aesthetically pleasing to the eye – I love this dish mid-week.

Spaghetti Bolognese – This is a fabulously simple dish to serve up at the end of the week, and is an easy way to increase the veggie intake for fussy children. I love to pair it with garlic bread.

Pork Roast – On a Sunday we often have an early dinner (or late lunch depending on how you look at it), and a pork roast makes the perfect lazy Sunday meal. I cook my pork with caramelised apples and onions – it’s delicious!

I absolutely love cooking up a roast dinner and there is something so satisfying about eating a delicious roast meal after waiting for it to cook to perfection. Whether you appreciate a good roast chicken or prefer silverside, I have collated a few roast dinner ideas including sides for you in this post.


Pumpkin, Feta and Spinach Muffins – These muffins make a fabulous school or afternoon snack for the kids. I like to make a double batch and freeze them so I have a quick and easy school lunchbox option on hand. If you want to make them a little more gourmet, top them with some extra feta.
