Weekly Meal Plan – Aloha Rice

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Last week, this week and next week we have many birthday celebrations in our family, which saw us and will see us all again next week gathering together, eating out for dinner to celebrate these special days.  Last week we had my lovely Mother-in-laws birthday, my niece’s birthday and yesterday my dad and I had lunch together to celebrate the memory of my mum on her birthday.  Tomorrow is the twins 13th birthday, then on the weekend I am throwing a birthday party for Miss 11 with a handful of her school friends. The twins are having their 13th birthday parties the following weekend.

Please share!

Please share what you’re having this week for dinner in the comments below, I always love hearing from you. Or, if you enjoy taking picture of your food please tag me on instagram with ” #imgettingorganised [email protected] “.


This weeks meal plan

You can read through my previous weekly meal plans to inspire you further.


Chicken Breast Fingers with vegetables

As the twins were at camp I asked Miss 11 what she would like for dinner, her request was some frozen chicken breast fingers with vegetables.  I quite like these too, they are quick and easy to heat up in the oven, a great fast dinner option.


Latina Beef Ravioli and Pasta sauce and herb bread. I was away in Melbourne for the day, this is one of my hubby’s specialties.


Club Helensvale to celebrate MIL birthday, $10 chicken parmigiana


Southport Sharks to celebrate my nieces birthday – buffet – kids eat for $16 each


Aloha Rice, a tropical twist to fried rice, with pineapple, less soy sauce.

This is a fabulous light friday night meal. My kids loved this especially Mr going to be 13 tomorrow! he loves anything with pineapple in it or on it 🙂

Aloha Rice Recipe


Smoked Beef Sausages (from local butcher) with mashed potato and vegetables


BBQ Steak and salad


Bliss balls – I made some new bliss balls, which I will share the recipe with you soon.

Honey and Carrot muffins – these are a healthy muffin, great for kids lunchboxes. I froze half of the batch to place in lunches at the end of the week.

Great, thank you! I was looking for a quick rice dish for dinner on a busy night this week so will give the aloha rice a go – my kids love pineapple so it should be a winner 🙂

Hope you enjoy the wasabi meatballs Julie. The sticky chilli and lemongrass caramel chicken sounds really interesting, never had caramel chicken before.

Julia K February 10, 2016 - 6:37 AM

Loved the wasabi meatballs – I did as you recommended and made a double batch – freezing some for another night. I’m looking at going back to work so building a stockpile for the freezer for busy nights. The Sticky Caramel Chicken recipe comes from a Super Food Ideas magazine. I’ve made caramel chicken before but this is a new recipe for me.

Awesome, so glad you all enjoyed them! What else are you stockpiling in your freezer, it’s a great idea, will save you so much time in the busy evenings.

Just did a quick freezer inventory this morning and I have:
Greek Lamb Meatballs – full family serve
Wasabi Chicken Meatballs – full family serve
Beef Stroganoff – 1/2 family serve
Mango Chicken Curry – 1/2 family serve
Chicken & Mushroom Pasta – 1/2 family serve
Fried Rice X 2 family size servings

Last year my DH was working away from home and it’s hard to readjust the quantities with cooking so I sometimes end up with leftovers – but not always enough to feed the whole family. I now freeze these smaller portions anyhow and every now and then I’ll schedule “Freezer Finds” on the menu plan and I will defrost 2 or 3 or these smaller containers and we’ll have a buffet style dinner. I sometimes do this when my eldest son (25 yr old) and his fiancee come for dinner. It works out really well as everyone has a choice (which the younger children love), it avoids the wastage and best of all – a night off cooking for me. What’s not to like ?

Mango chicken sounds nice Julia! Is it just me or have you just added a photo to your profile, love seeing your face! You could also split a 1/2 family serve into individual sizes and have for lunch?

Julia K February 16, 2016 - 4:18 PM

LOL – no it’s not just you – I finally have a face 🙂

Yes – freezing individual serves is also a good idea.

The Aloha rice sounds lovely and the leftover would be great for the kids lunchboxes.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 18, 2016 - 9:59 AM
