Menu plan - Thursday 19 May 2011

If you saw yesterday's post Big Buns for Big Prayer Day, you'll know that it's a public holiday tomorrow and therefore a long weekend - hooray! :D  So we've got our fingers crossed for good weather and will be taking things nice and easy...

'The prom' - at the bottom of our road.
The huts out on the water to the left are for 'winter bathers',
there's also a beach, a fort, a moat, cannons and a tiny campsite!
Here's the menu for the week:

*  big, meaty sausages with honey/chili/ketchup sauce, flash-fried savoy cabbage and mashed potatoes

*  homemade lasagne with green salad

I've made two large batches - one to eat, one to freeze
suppe - Danish meatball, dumpling and carrot soup (as a treat for DD9 when she gets back from school camp)
*  lamb steaks - which have been on the menu plan (but are still in the freezer) for weeks! ;D

*  homemade beef burgers on wholewheat buns, veggie sticks and a handful of crips on the side

DD9 tucking into some freshly made naan bread/flatbread - easy peasy to make and yummy!
*  chef's surprise = wholewheat pasta with whatever veggies and meat I find lurking at the back of the fridge ;D

That's it - no post tomorrow from me due to the holiday.  Have a lovely Little Friday and a wonderful weekend! :)

I admire your organisation skills, i never really plan what we are eating and i always end up having to through strange combinations together.

Hi Sam! I can't say that I always *enjoy* menu planning - but I never ever want to go back to the old stress of "5 o'clock - what's for dinner - help!" ;D
