Weekly Family Meal Plan #97

A weekly meal plan fit for a family, with a yummy slow-cooker meal, an easy chicken stir fry, simple sausages, tasty Anzac Day biscuits and so much more!

I have really enjoyed having the kids home a bit more (for the most part), and definitely can’t complain in the dinner department. It seems all those years of mothering young kids has paid off, with three teenage children who now help out a lot at dinner time! One of my daughter’s even had a little fun in the kitchen this week playing with our new kitchen appliance (did you hear that The Organised Housewife Shop now stocks kitchen appliances?! It’s so very exciting!).

Salmon, Mash and Three Veg – one of the perks of having my kids home at the moment (and having older children) is that they are making dinner a lot. My son made salmon in the oven with a simple potato mash, and steamed broccoli, corn, and cauliflower. There are many different ways to jazz up salmon though – like this recipe below.

BBQ Slow Cooker Meatballs – this meal was made by one of my darling daughters, who was very excited to try out our brand new slow cooker (which I now stock in my shop – you can check it out here). The whole meal can be made in this slow cooker (it does everything!) which makes clean up an absolute breeze.

Potato Bake – who can’t resist a tasty potato bake?! This recipe (below) is called my No-Fail Creamy Potato Bake because it is just that! Super creamy, simple, and delivers up soft tasty potatoes every single time.

BBQ Sausages with Salad – sometimes a simple meal like sausages and salad is right on the money! It’s cheap, easy, and the whole family ends up with empty plates.

Chicken Stir-Fry – it’s an easy and quick dinner option that’s packed with veggies and can be switched up and served in different ways. I made a soy and honey chicken stir fry with rice, but if you follow the recipe below you can choose from 3 of my easy chicken stir fry recipes.

Struggling for weeknight dinner ideas? In our busy household I like our weeknight dinners to be quick and easy. Stir-fries can be made in 15 minutes or less, are super easy and taste good. It's also a great dish to use up any vegetables you have in the fridge that are about to spoil.


Savoury Mince on Toast – my freezer died this week (nooooo!) so we quickly set about using up the leftovers from the freezer. My family love my savoury mince recipe because it can be eaten so many different ways. On this night we opted for an easy (but delicious!) option and served it on toast.

Roast Lamb – I love cooking up a roast dinner, especially at the end of the week. It’s a chance for the whole family to come together and enjoy a good hearty meal before the week keeps off again on Monday. We opted for a traditional roast lamb with veggies – yum yum!

I absolutely love cooking up a roast dinner and there is something so satisfying about eating a delicious roast meal after waiting for it to cook to perfection. Whether you appreciate a good roast chicken or prefer silverside, I have collated a few roast dinner ideas including sides for you in this post.


Anzac Biscuits – it’s a tradition in my home to make a batch of my Nan’s Anzac Biscuits every year for Anzac Day. They always remind me of her, and the whole family adore the biscuits.

My Nan's Anzac Biscuit Recipe which she handed down to me, adjust your cooking time depending on how you like your biscuit, hard or chewy!
