Menu plan nr.101 - Thursday 29 March 2012

Can I have a drumroll, please?  I'm proud to report - and quite staggered to discover - that this is my 101th menu plan.   Woo hoo!  Three cheers for Flylady!  I guess I've finally got that Flylady habit down pat?!  A celebration is most certainly in order but, as I try not to drink alcohol from Sunday to Thursday, I shall patiently wait until tomorrow night to have an extra glass of red wine! ;o)

Menu planning...it all started with a shiny sink and a purple Flylady rag! :D

Anyway, y'all know how this menu plan works - our grocery bill came to Danish kr. 1153 (roughly UK £129 or US $205.  Here's what we're eating at Casa Copenhagen this week:
*  Pea, garlic and parmesan bruschetta (Nigella Lawson recipe) and Chicken Nacho Grills with guacamole and a mixed green salad, Marcipan Cake (Nigella Lawson) - on a night that we had Danish family over for dinner :)

Pea bruschetta
*  Readymade pizza (from Ikea) or takeaway and icecream - on a night that DH is away and the kids and I are having a cosy night in with a Dr. Who marathon... :)

*  A Greek-inspired rice salad that I tossed together - prawn, red onion, olive, fresh basil, tomato, dried oregano and feta cheese


*  Leftover night (I always make sure to make too much of the Chicken Nacho Grills, so that there are leftovers...)

Pasta med kødsovs/spaghetti bolognese/pasta with meatsauce - because poor DS12 has just had a brace fitted and can't eat anything too hard! ;o)

*  Pork chops - will probably do them with Krista's Glazed Pork Chops recipe (children love them - me too!) and serve them with egg noodles and homemade raw carrot/red cabbage/coriander slaw

Bon appétit!

Have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday! :)
