Menu Plan Monday (6th March ~ 12th March)

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 is a very easy week's cooking for us as we were away for half of it! Halls Gap was magnificent, as was the food. The menu's were extensive and we have come away with many meals to try and replicate the recipes.

March and April are quite busy months for us with birthdays and Easter so our menu's over the next few weeks will be quite varied.

Planned on the menu this week are....

Saturday ~ The Kookaburra Restaurant, Halls Gap
Sunday ~ The Halls Gap Hotel Bistro
Monday ~ Mings Oriental at the National Hotel, Stawell
Tue ~ Lamb Backstrap with port and mustard sauce
Wed ~ Chicken Florentine Parcels
Thu ~ Pork Cutlets with Cranberry Wine Sauce
Fri ~ Spaghetti Bolognaise

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,
