Menu Plan Monday (1st May - 7th May)

Wow that weekend went really fast especially with James and Rhian here until Saturday morning, football all day Sunday and then out to dinner at the Chelsea Heights hotel with the whole Murray family last night!

This week seems all quiet on the Western Front as far as happenings go so here is how our menu is looking this week:

Saturday ~ Homemade Pizza
Sunday ~ Chelsea Heights Hotel
Monday ~ Lamb Stew with Crusty Bread Rolls
Tue ~ Pork Curry with Pineapple and Snow Peas
Wed ~ Devilled Sausages with Mashed Potatoes
Fri ~ Seafood Pie

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!!

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,

My Family from
