A weekly family meal plan that will bring diversity to the dinner table by celebrating cultures from across the world.
Just because we live in Australia, doesn’t mean we always have to eat Australian food. As multiculturalism grows in Australia, so does the amount of cultures and wonderful cuisines that we’re exposed to. This week a lovely reader named Sharon shared with The Organised Housewife team some dishes that include British, Italian, Japanese and Mandarin cuisine – yum!

Toad In The Hole – this is a very traditional British dish that brings together sausages, pastry and an onion gravy. Toad in the Hole is an tasty and affordable meal that’s perfect for feeding a big family.

Fish and Stir Fry Veggies – spice up Tuesday night with this flavoursome fish stir fry. I love using up the veggies I have in the bottom of the fridge in recipes like this one. Sharon suggests this dish is best served with a side of steamed rice.
Wraps – there is so much versatility when you’re making wraps for dinner. Add chicken, fish or beef, or keep them vegetarian by opting for a healthy mix of beans and veggies. Sharon also packs these colourful and filling wraps into her kids’ lunchboxes.
Chicken Bake – this an easy, affordable and filling meal to dish up towards the end of the week. My kids love my Mexican take on the traditional chicken bake which packs a little more punch. The meat could also be switched out for more black beans if you’re wanting to make a vegetarian meal.
Spaghetti Bolognese – Sharon likes to end the week with a tasty spag bol dish. Paired with a little basil and you have yourself a refreshing and hearty dinner. I often make my spaghetti meatballs in the slow cooker so that I can prep them ahead of time and let them cook away.

Soboro Don – this tasty Japanese dish is perfect for a lazy Sunday. Soboro means ‘minced’ and don means ‘chicken’, and that basically sums it up – with the addition of egg and tasty veggies. It looks like a healthy and incredibly tasty dish to end the week on.

Pavlova – why not return home at the end of the week and create one of Australia’s iconic desserts? Pavlova is always a family-pleaser with dapples of whipped cream and plenty of different colourful fruits.
