Weekly Family Meal Plan #86

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife
A reader inspired weekly meal plan that comes jam-packed with fresh, bright, colourful meals to help get you through 7 days of dinners.
I love to share what The Organised Housewife community are putting on their plates each week, which is why I like to share a reader’s meal plan every few weeks. This week’s family meal plan comes courtesy of Louise, who apparently has her meal plans sorted right up until Christmas (wow!).

Hamburgers (with the lot!) – I would recommend getting the kids in some old clothes for this dinner because it’s likely to be messy, LOL! The best thing about hamburgers with the lot, is the endless options for healthy tasty add-ons.

Sausages, Creamy Potato Bake and Veggies – this is such a hearty meal! The good thing about potato bake is that it makes a yummy side to most meats, whilst also being a fabulous stand-alone dish when spruced up with extra bacon or veggies.

Fish Cakes and Veggies – fish cakes are great for busy nights because they’re so quick and easy to make – they can even be made ahead of time and frozen. The recipe below includes salmon and sweet potatoes, and looks absolutely delicious!

Lemon Chicken Stir Fry – a stir-fry is a great dish for adding in heaps of yummy colourful veggies, and they come together pretty quickly too! I am loving the look of this fresh stir-fry with hints of honey, lemon, and ginger. Yum yum!

Chicken Pasties and Salad – if you’re wanting to make your pasties from scratch (you could always purchase pre-made ones for busy weeks), these ones look super yummy and are packed with veggies. Louise served her chicken pasties with a fresh green salad.

Steak and Chips – Louise served her steak up with green peppercorn sauce (yum!), veggies and a side of chips. This dinner is the perfect Saturday night meal in my mind.

Chicken Bake with Salad – I love a good chicken bake because in addition to being a hearty meal, it’s also an easy dish to switch up. My recipe below has tasty roast pumpkin in it, but Louise made her bake with Broccoli instead – yummy!

Hummingbird Cake – this delicious cake is a little bit naughty, so is definitely a sometimes food. The cream cheese icing really is so yummy – it the icing on the cake!
