Menu plan Thursday - 7 April 2011

I'm having a blog holiday next week, so here are more than 7 day's worth of dishes to keep you fed while I'm away! :)

Pasta med kødsovs/spaghetti bolognese/pasta with meatsauce.  And salad.

*  Leftover pasta (see above) jazzed up with frozen veggies (sweetcorn/baby peas), put in a greased oven dish, covered with cheddar cheese and baked.  Serve with hot rolls.

DD9 putting the finishing touches to the rolls :)

*  Roast chicken with brown rice made in my (beloved) rice cooker, 'salad' (diced cucumber, sweetcorn and red pepper with crushed tortilla chips mixed in)

*  Boiled eggs and homemade bread made in my breadmachine.  DH isn't home that night and the kids and I love boiled eggs! ;D

*  Big, fat, proper, meaty Danish sausages with (instant) mashed potato, chili/honey sauce and green beans

*  Enchiladas - which have become a new family favourite...yep, kidney beans n' all!


Enchiladas are an easy peasy dinner...especially if I hand the job over to DS11! :D
Madder (Danish open sandwiches = rye bread with different toppings)

Suppe (Danish meatball, dumpling and carrot soup), toasted rye bread

*  Pepperoni pizza - straight from the freezer.  With plenty of veggie sticks, to give some balance to the food pyramid and soothe my conscience.  Though I wouldn't exactly recommend this food pyramid mentioned on my favourite news network The Onion... ;D

*  Herb-crusted salmon (our version of 'fish fingers') with bulgur made in my (beloved) ricecooker.  And yummy stir-fried savoy cabbage - my favourite cabbage of all. Bet my Mum never thought I would ever say that! ;D
Salmon with a 'crust' added: breadcrumbs mixed with herbs (dill), salt and lots of lemon pepper, drizzled with oil.
Ready for the oven.

That's your lot - bon appétit!

Have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday! :)

Your posts make me hungry! Just to let you know, I ran across your blog following something down that had the word "fart" in it (no longer remember why). "Din fart er...." yes, I am childish too and laughed at your post. Nice blog. I will be back more often. Tak!

Hi Foxeni! Glad you found my blog - even though it was because of a "fart"! ;D

I've just had a two-week blog holiday but am now back with daily posts. Hope you find something you like! :D
