Menu Plan Monday (8th May - 14th May)

Another quick weekend but hey they do say that time flies when you are having fun. Saying that I just think the clock ticks faster when you are an adult!!

Sunday was Mother's Day here in Australia so that was busy in itself. The kids still played their football match and then we went for a Murray Family dinner at Noel's parent's. It was great to catch up with all the family again and relax before another big week with work and school.

This is what has been menu planned this week:
Sunday ~ Mother's Day dinner at Mam and Dad's
Monday ~ Chargrilled Rib Eye with Steamed Vegetables
Tue ~ Chicken Breast with Citrus Honey Sauce and Vegetables
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,
