Menu Plan Monday 22nd May ~ 28th May

Another weekend end (and week for that matter) gone with a blink of an eye.... geez it's all happening at once.

This weekend saw Noel and I making a banner for Ollie's 50th football match on Sunday. So Saturday I spent running around organising the materials and equipment for the banner so Noel and I could put it together late afternoon. Noel decided that we would all go out for dinner Saturday night so we could all relax. We went to the Ling Wah Chinese Restaurant in Frankston and as usual the meal was wonderful.

Sunday we spent most of the day at the Football. Alex played Chelsea YCW and her team played away. So we drove to Bonbeach in the morning. It was very fresh but it turned into a glorious day. Oliver's match was at home. Last night we went up to the football club for the usual awards night and it was a good night especially as most teams won their games yesterday.

Needless to say it's Monday again - and this is what has been menu planned this week:

Saturday ~ Ling Wah Chinese Restaurant
Sunday ~ Homemade Pizza
Tue ~ Hawaiian Chicken, steamed vegetables
Wed ~ Macaroni Beef, salad and garlic bread
Thu ~ Pork Medallions with Apple Glaze, steamed vegetables
Fri ~ Herb and Spice Steamed Fish, asian greens

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,
