Weekly Family Meal Plan #118

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

This 7-day meal plan is packed with tasty family recipes that include salmon, beef, chicken and tuna – there’s even a lunchbox snack for the kids!

I love to get as much variety into my family meal plans as possible and this week is no different. I often get sick of cooking with the same type of meat, so in this week’s meal plan I’ve tried to mix in a variety of different meat from salmon and beef, to chicken and tuna, with most of the recipes lending themselves to be easily adapted into vegetarian dishes too. All these wonderful recipes are simple, quick and most importantly suitable for the whole family.

Salmon and Root Vegetable Salad – this salad looks incredibly simple to make (and super tasty too!). Combine it wth a nice piece of grilled salmon and you have yourself a delicious and healthy dinner to kick off the school week.

Quick Beef Curry – I love a nice and quick curry recipe for a weeknight meal. This curry only takes half an hour to cook and is packed with flavour – plus a whole bunch of healthy veggies too! A great one for those growing bodies.

Chilli Con Carne and Wedges – this delicious chill con carne and wedges dish is to die for. You can adjust the spiciness to your family’s threshold and add some sour cream to the wedges for a little relief. The chilli con carne tastes pretty delicious on toast too!

Chilli Con Carne is a fabulous winter dish that can easily be adjusted to suit children's taste. Make a double batch to make a different meal the following night with the left overs.


Butter Chicken and Steamed Rice – I like to pop my chicken in a marinade in the morning (you could make this from scratch or use a store bought one) so that it’s ready to be whipped up when I get home from work. This recipe only takes 20 minutes to cook, and tastes delicious when paired with naan bread and coriander leaves.

Tuna Mornay – this recipe always makes me think of my mum. It’s probably not the healthiest dinner, but I occasionally serve it at the end of a long week because the whole family love it! I serve the tuna mornay on toast with crushed potato chips – it’s the perfect meal for a cozy Friday night in with and a movie!

Chicken Schnitzel and Salad – teamed with cucumber and pear, this Austrian-inspired dish is the perfect light recipe to start the weekend. Your family will love the crispy-ness of the chicken with the refreshing summer salad.
