Menu Plan Monday (19th May 2012 - 25th May 2012)

Ok so it's time for the House of Murray to get back into planning and being organised especially when it comes to healthy eating and menu planning.  I have decided it's also high time for me to get back onto my weight loss journey - yes the one that I started many moons ago.  One that means the whole house would benefit from such an action.....

So here is this week's menu plan for our house:

Saturday ~ Fish, Cauliflower and Broccoli Cheese and vegetables
Sunday ~  Roast lamb, potatoes and vegetables with gravy and mint sauce
Monday ~  Slow-cooked Sticky Pork with Steamed Asian Greens
Tue ~ Lamb Stew with Crusty Bread
Wed ~ Middle Eastern Beef Meatballs
Thu ~ Curried Lamb Pie
Fri ~ Fettucine Marinara

Baking ~ Bacon and Corn Polenta Muffins

Menu planning plays a major roll in our life! 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
