Weekly Meal Plan – Wasabi Chicken Meatballs with salad

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Last week I shared a post I’m real, not perfect, although I have replied to all the comments I just want to reach out again and tell you that your support and very kind words has really lifted me, I have slept so well the last few nights and feeling really positive about 2016, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.


I’ve had a few readers asking when the weekly meal planning posts will come back, which is great to read, as I was wondering if you enjoy them or not as I wasn’t getting many comments on the posts it was hard to gauge if you liked them or not.  But I’ll take that as a good hint you want them back!

By no means are our meal plans anything special, I try to keep it balanced and simple, no big gourmet meals here.

Get inspired with these past weekly meal plans and please share what you’re having this week for dinner in the comments below, I always love hearing from you.

This is our meal plan from last week, I share the week prior so I can add in the photos of what the meal looked like. Click on the pink text to view the recipe.


Sausages, mashed potato and vegetables – a quick and easy dinner as we flew back in from a family wedding in Sydney.


Cheats lasagna with vegetables – I love this recipe, it is so super easy to put together.



Wasabi Chicken Meatballs with salad – Homemade chicken meatballs with a hint of wasabi, I doubled the batch to have an easy meal the next day.

Salmon Mornay Pasta Bake – An easy pantry recipe,ingredients available from the fridge and pantry, macaroni, tinned salmon, mustard, milk, cheese etc, can be made ahead of time.



Very easy BBQ Steak, chips and a side of vegetables


Eggs on toast – only have 1 child at home the twins are off on school camp, so an easy night was very welcomed.


I did a big freezer bake up, so I had lunches and snacks ready for the kid’s school lunches. I made:

I place the frozen items directly into the kids school lunchboxes that morning, and they will defrost by lunchtime.

I’m so glad you’re doing these meal plans again! I love seeing what you make your family. I’ll check back before my next shop to help me write our menu for the month. I shop monthly for everything except fresh fruit and veg so I’m already sorted until the 16th of Feb 😉

OOh Miriam I love that idea of shopping monthly, now we have moved I don’t know the new supermarket and it’s doing my head in, it’s not set out like our previous store, everything is all over the place!

Kylie February 8, 2016 - 7:09 AM

Hi Kat, It’s Japanese panko crumbed pork (like a schnitzel). It’s served with this really yummy Japanese BBQ sauce you can get from Asian grocers.

I love panko crumbs, so crispy, thanks Kylie!!

I agree it’s hard to work it out, budget friendly, balanced and that all the family likes it. I have one now with braces which is making it that little bit harder.

Been meal planning for a few years now and love reading others for inspiration. We’re having:
Moroccan chicken salad (Michelle Bridges recipe)
Asparagus & feta quiche with vegies
Thai beef noodle salad
Bolognese ravioli (Latina fresh) with homemade tomato sauce (I make a big pot then grab from the freezer when needed)
Friday night takeaway
Roast lamb & vegies

My kids loved the Chicken Wasabi Meatball subs for their school lunches. I added Garlic Aoili and baby spinach leaves. They asked for them the next day as well!! Thank you!

LOVE IT!!! It would be a wonderful lunch idea for the kids!
