Menu planning Thursday - 17 June 2010

DH won't be home for dinner all next week. Add to that the fact that I'm throwing a birthday party for 14 Danish girlfriends (hooray!), DS10 has a sleepover at school (where I'm the DJ, tee-hee!), we'll be celebrating (yet another) quaint, Danish tradition Sankt Hans Aften (more on that in another blogpost) and - stone the crows, that came around fast - it's the last week of the school term! So we won't be cooking much food this week. What we do make will be very simple, use store cupboard ingredients, take minutes to put together and be child-friendly...


Toad in the hole (yes, our new favourite, you can see how we make it right here)
Crockpot lasagne.
Homemade chicken burgers on shop-bought wholemeal buns.
Pasta with Danish meatballs and spaghetti sauce.
Mexican Tortilla Triangles (that DD8 enjoy's making). Also known as Quesadillas.
 - And, bien sûr, lots of fresh salad or veggie sticks served alongside all of the above.




And what am I serving up for my girlfriends? Pink champers, oodles of sushi from the best place in town http://www.sushi.dk/ and a few homemade desserts. One of which will be Nigella Lawson's Chocolate Pavlova. Here's one I made earlier - complete with chocolate Lego men ;)




Hope you have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday! :)
