Menu Plan Week Beginning 23/11/09

What a week!

The weather has been awful! So hot! I refused to cook on Friday night so we got a takeaway chicken with chips and salad from the new Chicken shop in Westfield and had the fish fingers on Saturday night. Tonight as well was too hot to cook; 42.5 at Sydney Airport and 42.1 at Penrith with NW winds. Yuck! So, after helping with some preparations for the Bush Dance at school next week, we went out to Ikea to get Amy a new desk chair and we had sushi sitting in the airconditioned shopping centre.

This week, we will continue the clean out of the freezer of the leftover portions of meals so it will be quite a simple and easy week food wise. We also have the Bush Dance at Amy's school on Saturday night where we will have Spit Roast lamb. Yum!

Happy eating!

Menu Plan Week Beginning Mon 16/11/09

Another busy week and Amy's ballet concert yesterday. We were all so proud. At her request, we went to Alice's, a Malaysian restaurant in Thornleigh. It's always a popular choice and one I will write about this week.

Last week's Beef Curry was a hit although I was told it could do with extra chilli. The Burritos turned into Enchiladas so it was less messy to eat and the chilli factor was increased to please those fussy little ones of mine!

It's going to be quite warm this week, so easy meals are on the agenda. It's just about time to start breaking out the salads, but not until I use up some meals in the freezer and items in the pantry. At this stage, I do not need to do a meat or fruit and vegetable order for this week. Yay!

For this week, we will be eating...

Menu Plan Week Beginning Mon 9/11/09

Back at last! With Greg at home (and he is still unemployed), the school holidays, sick children, sick parents, trips to Emergency with Sophie and catching up on some craft projects, I'm back to setting my routine. Although I have been writing my plans, we haven't always been able to follow them and I have missed being organised. A lot can be said for having a routine.

I have been doing some interesting recipes, been to a vegetarian seminar and eating out (far too often) at some great places so I will start posting about those soon. Hopefully, I will also work out how to add some photos.

So for this week, we are eating....
