Monday's Menu Plan

Here we are again. A whole week flashed by and I missed most of it! Not only that but I also didn't cook for a few days. Hard to do when you're asleep! So I'm almost back to normal, apart from having a not so nice reaction to some cough syrup I took at 3am. I got up feeling icky, sweaty & lightheaded ~ but not coughing. That stuff was evil!

I have Mr Busy back at school, albeit with a cough. Today I have Miss Mischief home instead. She told me as we were walking out the door that she has an upset tummy. I dunno...I'm not seeing much evidence of that! She'll be at school tomorrow. I think she took advantage of my still not-quite-working-right brain. Anyway, an extra day to have a nap at 9.30am didn't do me any harm either. How pathetic is that. I get up and have to have a nap almost immediately LOL.

This week's menu goes something like this:

Monday: Sweet & Sour Chicken, Rice
Tuesday: Herbed Ricotta Fritters, vegies
Wednesday: Chicken Parmigana, hassleback potatoes, vegies
Thursday: Creamy Bacon & Mushroom Pasta
Friday: Lamb & Tzatziki Burgers (cross b/n burger & souvlaki I think)
Saturday: Roast Chicken or Cranberry Pork, potatoes, vegies
Sunday: Lasagna ~ will freeze half in preparation for a weekend away ;)

Actually, since I missed the chicken pie the other night I might do the pie filling over pasta instead of sweet & sour chicken. I'm still not feeling that much like eating. I think the sweet & sour would tip me over the edge. I hope by Wednesday I'm feeling gung ho again. I'm looking forward to that meal LOL.

Right, I quit. Your menu plan seems way more appealing than mine. I can offer house keeping in return for dinner!! :)

Great menu--very inspiring (maybe it will inspired me to go ahead and post mine!).

The upset tummy is a hard one to defend against. A couple of years ago Jack used it quite a bit, which is when I implemented the "stay home from school, no computer" rule. That seemed to do the trick.

Hope you are all feeling better soon Tracy, menu looks great, I'm still not too good at the menu making. Just don't seem to have time. But when I do it it does make my week easier. I think I need to make time.

Have a good day.

Aww no Felicity, don't quit! Here, just copy mine LOL.

Frances, I used to have a rule with her: no evidence, no dice. We ALL went to school today!
