OK – I’ve planned – and shopped. Now it’s time to cook this months food (take a big breath).
Having had a good look at what I did last time I’m going to make a few changes this time
– two weeks meals and then repeat
– more complete meals this time.
– a few lunches
– some cakes / biscuits (something to look forward to after a long day cooking!)
Two Week Menu Plan
|Day||WEEK 1||WEEK 2|
|Monday||Creamy Chicken and Tomato Pasta||Meatballs with tomato sauce**|
|Tuesday||Smoked mackerel with warm potato salad||Chicken in sweet curry sauce**|
|Wednesday||Bacon and Tomato Pasta with creme fraiche**||Lamb with lemon, rosemary and garlic**|
|Thursday||Lamb Burgers**||Salmon and Brocooli pasta|
|Friday||Oven-baked Red pepper risotto||Chicken, courgette and feta crustless quiche|
|Sunday||Chicken with black pepper**||Mediterranean Chicken**|
So ‘all’ I have to do on Cooking Day is (-wish me luck!):
Chicken in Black Pepper x2
Bacon and Tomato Sauce x4
Lamb Burgers x2
Lemon, garlic and rosemary marinade for lamb x2
Mediterranean Chicken x2
Chicken in sweet curry sauce x3 (extra for when friends come to supper) – a simplified version of this. Just freeze the cooked sauce. Add the mayonnaise and cooked chicken when defrosted.
Have I been too ambitious? I’ll let you know!
It won’t hurt as our kitchen needs decorating and I’ll be cooking under dust sheets for a couple of weeks.
Have a good week!
As usual I’m linking up to Mrs M’s Meal Planning Monday where you can find lots of great ideas for meals.
