This Week's Menu

We've enjoyed a wonderful weekend of fun and relaxation, thanks to a four-day weekend. Well...our school takes the Monday before Melbourne Cup Day. Very generous of them, isn't it. Mr Busy has already had a little cry because he misses all the fun we've had.

This week, when our wonderful weekend is but a distant memory, this is what we'll be having for dinner.

Monday: Sweet & Sour Pork, brown rice
Tuesday: Tuna & Pasta Casserole
Wednesday: Apricot Chicken, mashed potatoes, carrots, broccoli
Thursday: Herbed Ricotta Fritters, vegies
Friday: Pasta with Creamy Bacon & Mushroom Sauce
Saturday: Quiche, vegies
Sunday: Roast, vegies (whatever meat is economical)

My next food related project is to look into getting a new bread machine. Mine is sounding very unwell and the seal in the bottom around the paddle has deteriorated. I just can't do a three week holiday over summer with bread prices being what they are.

Let us know what kind of bread machine you get. I've been meaning to get one for ages and make Jack our official bread maker. Ultimately my goal is to get him to do all our cooking, but at nine he may not quite be up that task just yet!

I've only ever had Breville machines thus far and I really like them. My current model has a button to choose 750g or 1kg loaf cooking time which I love. I used to have to take the 750g loaf out 10 minutes early.

However, in 10 years I've had three, so at a 3-4 year lifespan I'm wondering if there is something more durable or if that's all I can expect.

My breadmaker died and I haven't replaced it bacause it took up too much room.
