Menu Plan Monday (30th Jan - 5th 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!!

Oliver has started high school and Alex has started in a new primary school - which happens to be right next to the high school. I had a day off today to ensure all was good with them both this morning but tomorrow my job changes not only in the role but in the location. So as you can imagine this week is going to be huge with all the changes we need to stick to our menu.

Anyway so this is how our week is looking food wise....

Sat ~ Lobster with Blackbean and Chilli Sauce
Sun ~ Beans on toast with egg
Mon ~ Roast Beef, Yorkshire Puddings and vegetables
Tue ~ Creamy Chicken and Bacon Fettuccine
Wed ~ Sticky Honey Lamb, Noodles and Vegetables
Thu ~ Steak with Wasabi Butter
Fri ~ Satay Chicken Pizza

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,
