Weekly Family Meal Plan #89

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

A weekly meal plan with hints of warm winter meals, fresh side salads and a whole lot of yumminess to help inspire your daily dinners.

The weather has turned it on this last week, with Australia’s Sunshine State becoming anything but. The rainy weather has helped breathe a little warmth into my weekly meals though, with the beginnings of warm winter dinners starting to weave their way into my meal planning.

MONDAY

Tikka Meatball Curry with Rice – I made this meal with pre-made beef meatballs (so it only took 5 minutes to prep!), but it would work well with chicken or lamb meatballs too. I like to add rice to this meal so that it goes even further.

TUESDAY

Pork Chops and Veggies – pork chops are such an easy mid-week meal. They can be cooked on the BBQ, stovetop, or in the oven with some roast veggies. We had our pork chops with steamed veggies – although this baked recipe below looks delicious!

WEDNESDAY

Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken – this recipe is so versatile! You can turn it into a casserole, burritos, enchiladas or even pizza! I made this salsa recipe into a bake and it was delicious – the perfect dinner for a rainy night (my goodness I’m loving this rainy weather!).

THURSDAY

Salsa Chicken Burritos – I told you last night’s dinner was versatile! I made these burritos with the left over Mexican Chicken Salsa from Wednesday night (and then still had some leftover to freeze for another day).

FRIDAY

Grilled Salmon and Salad – I love gilled salmon with a simple salad! It’s a quick, tasty and very healthy meal. In colder months I like to serve my salmon with creamy mashed potato and asparagus – yum yum!

SATURDAY

Beef Ragu – a week of rainy weather and all of a sudden I’m cooking warm comforting food like this delicious Beef Ragu! This was a really beautiful meal that was bursting with flavour.

SUNDAY

Simple Avocado Toast – sometimes Sunday night calls for a simple dinner like avocado toast – but don’t be fooled into thinking that a quick easy dinner like this needs to be boring. Jazz up your avo toast with egg, bacon, tomato and coriander, or even a sprinkle of feta.

BAKING

Banana Weetbix Muffins – these muffins are delicious, freeze really well, and make a great addition to the kid’s school lunchboxes. They’re very easy to make too, plus are a fabulous way to use up over-ripe bananas and the crumbs kicking around the bottom of the Weetbix box.

Hi Cat, Have you cooked the Beef Ragu recipe in your slow cooker? If so did you reduce the liquid and to how much? I’d be thinking probably half would work okay. Thank you.

Lindsey I didn’t use my slow cooker for this so am not too sure. If you give it a go please let us know though! Thanks, Kat x
