Menu Plan Monday (19th June ~ 25th June)

It's becoming a regular thing to be posting my Menu Plan Monday on Wednesday when I really did the planning nearly a week earlier... ggggrrrr I have to stop being so busy.

Friday is a strange day for us. Oliver has a night match for his football this week and it's also Noel's mam's birthday and they have planned to go to The Waltzing Matilda to celebrate. I am taking Ollie to his game and we will grab a Lamb Souvlaki after the game and Noel will take Alex to the birthday dinner. This is the first time we have even done this ... normally it would be one or the other and we all go together but junior football is normally on a Sunday and there isn't always the chance to play under lights on a Friday night so he wants to play.... and so he should!!

This is what has been menu planned this week:

Saturday ~ Pork Tenderloin with Pistashio, Apple and Fennel Stuffing
Sunday ~ Butter Chicken with Steamed Rice
Monday ~ Tandoori Mushrooms, Balti Prawns
Tue ~ Chelsea Heights Hotel
Wed ~ Home Made Pizza
Thu ~ Beef Paprikish and mashed potatoes
Fri ~ Waltzing Matilda for Noel and Alex, Lamb Souvlaki for Jo and Oliver

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
