Menu Plan Monday (20th March - 26th March 2010)

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!!

This weekend was huge with a friend's 50th on Saturday night where we got home around 1.30am. The kids didn't come with us they actually stayed at Nana and Grandad's but we met up with them all for lunch on Sunday.

The week ahead is also busy. I have a committee meeting Tuesday night which seems it will be a long one and then it's Oliver's birthday on Friday. Oliver is turning 12 and Friday night all the family will come over for dinner. Saturday he is having a few friends over, they are going to the movies and then having a sleepover. So a house full of 12 year olds sounds inviting, right?

As for meals this week the menu looks like this:

Saturday ~ Flounder with Lemon and Thyme Sauce
Sunday ~ Teriyaki and Chilli Pork Ribs
Monday ~ Prawn Laska for adults, Macaroni Pots for kids
Tue ~ Beef Curry with Steamed Rice
Thu ~ Devilled Sausages with Crispy Potatoes
Fri ~ Lasagne, Salad, Garlic Bread, Birthday Cake

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,
