Menu Plan Monday 16th April 2011 - 22nd April 2011

LOL I find it funny that I am motivated to menu plan this week considering we are going away on Friday to Sydney for the Easter weekend. But I really wanted to get back into some normality and somehow menu planning does make me feel there is an air of normal around the house.

Noel and I are home alone at the moment as the kids are away with school holidays... so the quietness is somewhat strange and our eating habits have been also out of whack.

So on the House of Murray Menu Planner this week is:

Saturday ~ Pesto Prawn and Spinach Pizza
Sunday ~ Chilli and Thyme Kangaroo Fillets
Monday ~ Baked Potatoes with the Lot (coleslaw, bacon, cheese and sour cream)
Tue ~ Pork with Cider Cream Sauce
Wed ~ Chicken Mushroom and Corn Parcels
Thu ~ Chilli Beef with Water Chestnuts Stir Fry
Fri ~ Travelling to Sydney

Anzac Biscuits

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.
