Menu Plan Monday (13th Feb ~ 19th Feb)

As you have probably gathered by now, I LIVE for menu planning! By menu planning it ensures that we have a weeks worth of meals organised which is especially useful Monday through Friday when there is not much of the day left after finishing work, picking up the kids from school and having to deal with the tasks of homework, clothes washing, showers, etc., and to do without the hassle of worrying WHAT we are cooking for dinner each night. Honestly if I left deciding what’s for dinner until I go home we wouldn’t eat until midnight!!

So we have settled into somewhat of a routine and I must say I am definitely getting used to not working on Saturday mornings anymore.... have to admit didn't take me very long!! LOL!! This weekend we celebrate (in our fashion) both Valentines Day and Chinese New Year.

Planned on the menu this week are....

Saturday ~ Barbecue Prawns
Sunday ~ Mongolian Steamboat
Monday ~ Combination Stirfry with Vegetables
Tue ~ Beef Tacos with Salad
Wed ~ Twilight School Sports - picnic
Thu ~ Fish with Macadamia Crust
Fri ~ Spicy Beef Casserole with Crusty Bread

As Sunday was both Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year's Day we ensured that we had a nice brunch, Whipped Egg on Toast, and then we sat down for our Mongolian Steamboat, our favourite family feast.

I know that our week starts on a Saturday but that’s just for the ease of fitting in with my grocery shopping which is normally done on a Friday night or Saturday afternoon.As usual more great menu ideas can be found at Menu Plan Monday over at I’m An Organising Junkie, don’t be shy pop over and have a look at other’s menu plans. You never know you may just find something different to have for dinner.

Some recipes for things we cook can be found over at our cooking blog, A Dash Of Flavour, normally posted after they have been cooked or just click on the links for each meal when they appear.

Happy cooking,
