Menu Plan Monday (15th October - 21st October)

Cannot believe another week is nearly over and once again I am late posting our weekly menu.  We have been busy both on the work/school front as well as the personal side.  At the moment we are getting ready to go camping on the Melbourne Cup Long Weekend.... not only are we finding all of our camping bits and bobs but also trying to find a nice bush location to camp that is not full of motorbike riders, yobbo's or still recovering from the bush fires.

Saying this - here is what's on this week's menu:

Saturday ~ Kasturi Indian Restaurant Frankston
Sunday ~ Chargrilled T Bone Steaks with Coconut Chilli Sauce
Monday ~ Slow Cooked Cider and Herb Braised Beef Ribs
Tue ~ Oven bake fish and chips
Wed ~ Chicken with Prosciutto, Blue Cheese and Semi Dried Tomatoes
Thu ~ Pasta Milano
Fri ~ Mince Beef Curry with 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,

Jo xx
