Menu Plan Monday (30th October - 4th November)

It's Melbourne Cup week here which was when we were meant to be going camping but unfortunately with the weather that was forecast and not finding the "perfect" campsite we chose not to go away and have delayed our plans until the Christmas/New Year period.

So with being home, Noel working and the kids at school this what's on this week's menu:

Saturday ~ Moroccan Lamb Shanks
Sunday ~ Homemade Hamburgers with the Lot, Caramelised Capsicum Relish, Mustard and Herb Roast Potato Bites
Monday ~ Roast Chicken with mashed potato, vegetables and gravy
Tue ~ Pork and Coriander Dumplings in Spicy Asian Broth
Wed ~ Lasagne, Salad and Garlic Brea
Thu ~ Baked Chicken and Mushroom Crepes
Fri ~ Spicy Pork Stir Fry

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
