Menu Plan Monday (16th October ~ 22nd October)

Our menu this week started off with a feast to mark Pam and Dennis last night with us. Starting with some fresh seafood and then some Kangaroo Fillets followed by a huge cheese platter, their first time trying it which Dennis enjoyed but Pam wasn't that fussed. It is a stronger taste than beef etc but it was good that they were both happy to give it a go.

With it only being a few weeks until Christmas I need to pull my finger out with some baking and also stick to our menu plan which is based on low fat cooking. God knows I need to combat all our upcoming social events.

On the House of Murray Menu Planner this week is:


Saturday ~ Family Feast (oysters, prawns, kangaroo fillets, etc - for full menu read previous post or click here)
Sunday ~ dinner at a Thai Restaurant
Monday ~ Roasted Lamb Chops, Mashed Potatoes, Steamed Vegetables, Gravy and Mint Jelly
Tue ~ Slow Cooked Pork and Sweet Potato Casserole
Wed ~ Spaghetti Bolognaise, Garlic and Cheese Bread
Thu ~ Chicken and Macadamia Stirfry with Steamed Rice
Fri ~ Curried Lamb and Couscous Filo Rolls with salad

Mixed Chocolate Chip Muffins

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,
