Weekly Family Meal Plan #197

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

This week’s Family Meal Plan includes 7 delicious dinner recipes that are ideal for busy families.

Get organised with your meal planning this week! Enjoy these tasty recipes including 15 Minute Soy Sauce Butter Fried rice, Veggie Turkey Taco Wraps, Creamy Garlic Prawns and more.


Each week I plan my meals for the following week, this is called meal or menu planning. Some think it’s not worth it, but it really is a simple task that takes 5-10 minutes to plan one week of meals. The money and time that these five minutes save me throughout my week, makes it well worth the effort.


Pasta Carbonara – This is an easy meal to make and so delicious for a Monday night indulgence! I added some pasta water to make it a bit more saucy.


15 Minute Soy Sauce Butter Fried Rice – This one is so quick and yummy, it’s bound to become a regular addition to your meal planning. It’s a great vegetarian option with eggs for protein.


Chicken Quesadillas – Packed with flavour, these quick and easy quesadillas are perfect for a weeknight meal.


Easy Steak Salad – Keep it simple with thin steak slices over a salad and your favourite dressing.


Reuben Casserole – All the ingredients of the classic Reuben sandwich in a casserole! Different and delicious.


Chicken Kiev, Vegetables with Roasted Garlic Mash – Buy some ready-made Chicken Kievs at the supermarket and serve with vegetables and this yummy Roasted Garlic Mash.


Creamy Garlic Prawns – This is one of my all-time most popular recipes! A great way to include seafood in your meal plan.


Veggie Turkey Lettuce Wraps – Swap out traditional tacos for lettuce and enjoy a dinner high in nutrition and taste.


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread – This fluffy and moist bread is such a treat and I love that it’s main ingredient is pumpkin!
