Menu Plan Monday ~ 17th Sep - 23rd Sep 2011

WOW I cannot believe it's been so long since I put up our menu planner.  It's not that we haven't been menu planning because we have otherwise we just wouldn't be feeding the family as I have mentioned over the last few months we have just been so busy especially me with working away from home.

This week and the next coming weeks are no different to the usual kaos that seems to go hand in hand with the Murray family.  On Thursday the kids fly out to Brisbane for 2 weeks and next week I am away with work most of the week leaving Mr Murray to fend for himself!

So to make the most of menu planning this week this is what is on the House of Murray Menu Planner:
Saturday ~ Presentation Day at footy club
Sunday ~ Baxter Tavern, Baxter
Monday ~ Spaghetti Bolognaise
Tue ~ Mu Shu Pork
Wed ~ Spicy Asian Broth with Pork and Coriander Dumplings
Thu ~ Home Made Pizzas
Fri ~ Prawn Curry with Tomato and Herbs

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,

Jo xx
