Weekly Family Meal Plan #38

The weather is getting a little colder which means that winter dinner dishes are making a regular appearance in our families weekly dinner meal plans.  My kids love lasagna, sometimes I make it from scratch but on a busy weeknight, I like to make my cheats version and this week I made a double batch so I didn’t have to cook the following night and we could have left overs!

Please don’t forget to share your weekly plan in the comments below, I’d love some winter dinner inspiration too!!

THE ORGANISED HOUSEWIFE WINTER DINNER IDEAS EBOOK - This eBook is full of winter recipe ideas that will keep you warm and nourished in the colder seasons.

Keep your temperature high and your tummy full with this awesome collection of winter dinner ideas.


Super easy cheats beef lasagna with steamed vegetables – sometimes I just don’t have the energy or desire to be slaving over a hot stove making tomato and bechamel sauces. This recipe is so super simple and uses pre-made sauces from the supermarket – perfect for those nights you feel like some comfort foot but don’t want to spend too much time cooking!

Homemade Fried Rice – This is a very quick and easy meal to prepare, make as per the recipe or simply search through your fridge to see what vegetables you have on hand. Really, any vegetable can be added to this dish.

Brazilian fish stew with rice – an exotic and flavoursome dinner for a Sunday night.  This recipe asks for annatto seeds, which I didn’t have nor wanted to buy so I used a few cracks of pepper at the end of the cooking process instead.

Apricot Yoghurt Muffins – Fruit muffins are always a great addition to the kids lunch box.
