Weekly Meal Plan – Warm Lamb and Cauliflower Salad

It has begun to get a little cold here, this week’s Winter Meal Plan will certainly keep you warm.  Remember to come back each Monday as I share our weekly meal plan and other recipes to help inspire you.  See my previous weekly meal plans here.

This weeks meal plan


Beef Curry with mashed potato.

The Beef Curry above is a Thermomix recipe, however for those without a Thermomix this slow cooker Moroccan Beef Curry is delicious.  I made the mash in a saucepan on the stove, I love my Thermomix but really don’t like potato mash made in it.

Grilled fish and salad


Chicken with Creamy Chive Sauce, with vegetables and sweet potato mash. Sweet potato mash: place sweet potato in a saucepan, add enough water to cover, bring to the boil, remove when tender, approximately 10-15 minutes.  Drain water from pan, add a dollop of butter, season with salt and pepper and mash.

This quick chicken recipe is low in calories thanks to a few healthy cooking techniques. A quick homemade pan sauce is rich and creamy with less saturated fat and sodium than canned-soup sauce. And fresh chives add a healthy burst of flavor.

Roast Pumpkin Soup

This is my go-to pumpkin soup recipe.  I make a double batch and freeze the remaining soup, check out how I freeze soup here.


Left overs of last nights soup


Curried Fish and Vegetable Pot Pie

This pot pie would make enough to feed 8 people, I used an extra-large rectangular casserole dish. Use the rest for left overs for following day, dinner or lunch or half the recipe for a serving of four.



Warm Lamb and Cauliflower Salad

This warm lamb & cauliflower salad is a quick, easy and low carb mid week meal that’s also really yummy.  Perfect for the cooler autumn nights don’t you think?



Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies


Salted Caramel and Easter Egg Muffins using the Jam and Cream Muffins recipe.

To use up some ‘left over’ Easter Eggs I followed the Jam and Cream Muffin recipe, but instead of using Jam I added a spoonful of some Salted Caramel Sauce I had in the pantry and an easter egg. The caramel sauce soaked into the batter, ooh so good.


Mexican Layer Dip, is a great dish to bring along to BBQ’s.  We had a games afternoon, so I made it to snack on!


What is your favourite meal to warm you up?

The warm lamb and cauliflower salad looks fantastic but the link to the full recipe doesn’t seem to work. Can you help as I’d love to try it out this weekend.

Jen Robinson May 3, 2015 - 10:05 PM

Love, love, love menu planning. It’s a fantastic opportunity for me to try out new recipes. I like to pick one new one each week to pop in amongst the old favourites. Keeps me sane and keeps things fresh. Keep up the great work.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife May 4, 2015 - 8:39 AM

I agree Jen! I love your idea of putting one new meal in a week, what a fantastic idea.:)

Hi Katrina

Thanks for sharing the warm lamb & cauliflower salad. I made it last night, it was very tasty and it was liked by most! It caught my eye as it was something that I would not normally cook. It will now be added to the menu plan.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife June 3, 2015 - 8:41 AM

Ooh that is awesome, Angela! So happy to hear you all enjoyed it.:) It is very yummy and we too have it as a side dish a fair now too.:)
