Meal Planning with Mrs Organised …

Meal Planning with Mrs Organised 001

Meal planning is one of my favourite things for helping me get organised. It saves me time, saves me money, definitely saves my sanity and prevents the 5.00 o’clock “What’s for Dinner” panic! It’s been a couple of weeks since I shared a Meal Plan so here’s what’s on mine for the coming week:

Monday: San Choy Bow with Fried Rice

Tuesday: Roast Chicken with roast potato, sweet potato, onion, & capsicum with steamed carrot, broccoli & gravy

Wednesday: Mexican Beef Tacos with tomato, cheese, lettuce, avocado and sour cream

Thursday: Spaghetti and Meatballs with grated cheese and cherry tomatoes

Friday: Slow Cooked Lamb Korma with rice and steamed brocolli

Saturday: Corn and Bacon Soup with crusty bread

Sunday: Risotto with chicken, mushrooms and roasted pumpkin

Fruit: Strawberries, apples, oranges and bananas

Baking: Jam Drops and Sticky Date Muffins

To help you with your meal planning here is a free Meal Planner that I’ve created to get you started. Simply click on the “free to download” button under the image and print as often as you would like.

So tell me, do you think Meal Planning would help you get more organised and is this something you already do?


  1. Thank you for the free downloads ?
    Sometimes I try to meal plan but it rarely works out…….I tend to plan after I’ve shopped lol which for obvious reasons doesn’t work well. The other problem I have is that I often don’t feel like cooking what I have put on the planner.
    Any advice ?

    • Hi Dianne and welcome! I sometimes have a change of heart as well or occasionally my plans for the week change. When that happens I don’t fret too much or overthink it … I either cook something different (as long as I have all the ingredients) or better still, I give myself the night off and raid the freezer! I always plan for usually two nights of the week to cook something that’s suitable to freeze like a casserole or curry and then I have a supply of meals ready to go that I can use in any time. Add some rice, pasta and veggies and dinner’s good to go. Hope that helps!
