A tasty 7 day meal plan – with a few twists – that comes courtesy of a member of The Organised Housewife online community.

I love to showcase meal plans that have been shared with me by my community! This weekly family meal plan comes courtesy of Kay, and includes a couple of interesting tweaks on some more traditional dishes. Enjoy!

Beef Ravioli – this is such an easy ready-made meal for busy families, that can be easily jazzed up with extra veggies, or even turned into a bake like in this recipe below.

Meatloaf – this one is a favourite for so many kids! Whilst it can be quite a fatty dish, a few simple tweaks like using lean mince, alternating white bread crumbs for whole wheat ones, and adding a serve of veggies can help fix that.

Hot Dogs – it’s nice to see I’m not the only mum who opts for this easy fuss-free dinner option! In a bid to share a different take on this common meal idea, I found this adorable recipe! Even the name is cute.

Chicken Pasta Bake – bakes are a definite go to dish in my home, and my Chicken Pumpkin Tortilla Bake is certainly up there as one of the family’s favourites! I like to serve my bakes with an easy salad, chips, or even a side of hot crunchy bread.

Lamb Steak and Veg – lamb is a delicious healthy dinner option, and I am loving the vegetable chips in this recipe for a playful approach on the meat and 3 veg idea.

Left Overs – I love to see that I am not the only mum that makes left overs a meal unto themselves! My advice is always to prepare more and freeze, so that you have a good little stockpile for easy nights like this.


Lasagna – When Kay shared her meal plan she hadn’t quite decided on Sunday night’s dinner, so I thought I’d throw in one of my favs! This lasagna recipe can be easily mixed up to suit many tastes. It’s even great for the vegetarians among us wanting a meat free alternative – simply try alternating the chicken in this recipe for veggie mince, beans, or more vegetables. It’s easy, delicious, and nutritious!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Muesli Bars – these homemade muesli bars are great to make on the weekend as they can be frozen and popped into school lunchboxes during the week. I must admit however, that these muesli bars barely last long enough in my house to freeze – the kids simply love them!
