Menu Plan Monday ~ 10th April to 16th April 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 week marks the return of some normality in the house with school resuming today. However it's also such a busy week for us also. I have a Committee Meeting Tuesday night and the kids have an extra training session on Tuesday also as we have two members from the St Kilda football club coming down to do some drills with the younger kids and also have a chat with the older players to give them some game play tips, encouragement etc. Not sure who the players are just yet - we are actually hoping to find out today. I have a few other things going on as well after work. As usual tonight is weigh-in night at Weight Watchers and as usual I don't want to go!! Then I have an appointment on Thursday night and before we know it the weekend will be upon us.

Having a lot of trouble sticking with our planned menu's lately - hoping we can do better this week as we have some delish meals on the menu:

Sunday ~ Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce
Monday ~ Braised Steak and Vegetables Pot Pies
Tue ~ Pork Apple and Thyme Meatballs with Pasta
Wed ~ Sweet and Spicy Chicken with Steamed Rice and Vegetables
Thu ~ Veal with Tomato and Spinach, Potatoes and Steamed Vegetables
Fri ~ Seafood and Vegetable Parcels

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,
