Menu Plan Monday (17th July - 23rd July)

Once again I am behind the 8 ball with posting up our weekly eating plan. And to be perfectly honest we are facing a few huge weeks in the Murray household.

Last Friday night we had our friends Nazz and Steve over for dinner. We had a Mongolian Steamboat and it was enjoyed by all. There was left over meat and vegetables so we had another one on Saturday night.

My mam arrives today and then all the family/social events will start up for the next 3 or so weeks.

Anyway this is what I have planned for our menu this week:

Saturday ~ Mongolian Steamboat
Sunday ~ Spaghetti Bolognaise and Fettucine Carbonara (dinner at the footy club presentations sponsored by Frankston Pizza House)
Monday ~ Fish and Chips
Tue ~ Mooloolaba Chicken, Roasted Cherry Tomatoes, Steamed Vegetables
Wed ~ Lasagne, Garden Salad and Garlic Bread
Thu ~ Chilli Prawns with Steamed Rice
Fri ~ Chargrilled Pork Cutlet on Rosti with Steamed Vegetables

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,
