Weekly Family Meal Plan #85

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

This 7 day family meal plan is the perfect companion to a busy week as it’s bursting with delicious fresh dinners that are full of flavour!

The last school term of the year kicked off in Queensland last week, and I wanted to make sure my kids had meals that kept their tummies full and their brains firing for the first week back. Hopefully, this meal plan will help you and your children hit the ground running in Term 4 too!

Curried Sausages with Rice – this is a great meal for getting lots of veggies into your family’s diet! In addition to being super yummy, this recipe also brings back fond memories of my childhood and my nan, who always added boiled eggs to her curried sausages too! I made extra boiled egg so I had them on hand for snacks throughout the week.

Creamy Garlic Prawns – My hubby originally made this meal for me on Mother’s Day about 6 years ago! It’s so delicious, and I have made it HEAPS of times since.

Orange and Honey Chicken Drumsticks – chicken drumsticks are a great meal for families with younger children (in my experience kids love the mess that eating drumsticks provides – LOL!). With summer just around the corner, this is also a nice meal to start injecting some of those fruity citrus flavours.

Beef Burritos – my family love these! So super quick to make, and a great dish for older kids to help prepare. My children loved when they got older enough to assemble their own burritos.
