Menu planning Thursday - 17 December 2009

Can you believe it's only 7 days to Christmas - eek! And hooray! :)

THURSDAY
  • Egg fried rice with some leftover ham from the freezer and lots of veggies from the fridge.

FRIDAY
  • Pasta med kodsovs. Spaghetti bolognese. Pasta with meatsauce. Whatever you want to call it. Simple to make and always hits the spot! DH and I are out to Eddie Izzard tonight :)

SATURDAY
  • Going to buy the Christmas tree today :) Beef steaks (have some in freezer that I need to use up) with béarnaise sauce, baby potatoes, tomato salad

SUNDAY
  • Homemade pepperoni pizza.

MONDAY
  • No school yay! Homemade burgers on buns, handful of crisps or tortilla chips, dip and veggie sticks.

TUESDAY
  • Family arrive from Scotland - yippee! Chicken Parmesan (chicken fillets dipped in egg and breadcrumbs, fried, put on bed of tomato sauce, serve with tagliatelle/noodles) from the Saving Dinner book. Salad to go with it.
WEDNESDAY ("LITTLE CHRISTMAS" EVE)
  • We'll be having DH's æbleskiver (Danish Christmas donuts) with gløgg (mulled wine) tonight. So I think we'll probably have lots of 'nibbles': smoked salmon (we've ordered a whole side of it from a fishmonger in Skagen), honey/mustard dressing, freshly baked bread, celery, radishes, grapes and various cheeses.
Bon appétit and have a thoroughy thrillingThursday! :)

This is such a nice blog and such a great service you offer. Are you aware of the Cook'n recipe software
? I thought of it as I've been reading your posts--it's a tool that might really make your blogging and work super simple. In a nutshell, this product is a recipe program that manages your recipes and has: a menu planner to help prepare meals in minutes, a family cookbook maker for creating personal gifts, over 60 famous cookbooks included, a grocery shopping tool to simplify shopping, and a nutrition analyzer to help you deal with specific dietary needs. I've tried several recipe softwares, but I like this the best not only because of the features but because of the amazing after-sale tech-support. Just wanted to share a good tip...

I normally use http://recipezaar.com (a great free site and you can store your recipes online) and cookbooks by Nigella Lawson and Leanne Ely (the Dinner Diva).
