Menu plan - Thursday 26 January 2012

As you saw last week, I'm focusing 120% on the Flylady's Super Fling Boogie and am trying to use up all the items that are taking up space in my freezer and storecupboards.  Saving myself money and space! :)

I do my shopping 'on-line' once a week and buy everything we eat for breakfast and dinner, the kids packed lunches for school, and things like wine/washing up liquid/'bog roll'...  My grocery bill this week came to kr. 717 (about £80 or $125) - which is about 2/3 of my usual spend. Three cheers for that! :)

So here - in Super Fling Boogie style - is what's on the menu at Casa Copenhagen this week:

*  Leftover roast chicken (we had roast chicken at the weekend) in wholemeal pita pockets, with fresh 'peapod top' salad (my current fave type of salad) and veggie sticks.  DH's Danish Xmas donuts (there are a couple of bags left in the freezer) for dessert :)



*   Pork Chops Yum-Yum - a very easy and tasty recipe I found on food.com, will serve with broccoli and baby potatoes

*   Homemade (wholemeal) lasagne with a fresh, green salad (I'm making one lasagne to eat and one to put into the freezer for next month, how about that for being organised?!)

*  Danish meatball, dumpling and carrot soup with homemade bread (made in my breadmachine) - poor DD9 is home sick and this is her favourite comfort food :)

*   Homemade wholemeal pizza (will make the dough in my bread machine) with homemade raw carrot/red cabbage slaw

*  Some kind of beef + vegetable curry in my crockpot and will make coconut rice (in my beloved ricecooker) to go with it

Did you know you can, amongst other things, make scrambled eggs and omelets
in your ricecooker? See our instructions here!
*   And, as usual, one of the nights will be the (in)famous Leftover Night = will dive into the fridge and root out some veggies/leftover meat and make them into a pasta or fried rice dish ;D

Bon appétit!

Hope you have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday! :)
