Monday's Menu Mayhem

I'm sitting here enjoying a cup of tea and a lemon muffin from the other day. Bliss. Pure, silent, tasty bliss. It wasn't intentional, but I think I'm going to enjoy quiet Monday's and a little sweet treat just makes it all that much nicer.

This morning my 'Maggie's Kitchen' cookbook joined me for breakfast, so I'm feeling a little more inspired with my meals than I have been. I've been so tired over the last couple weeks that meal inspiration has been pretty low on my radar.

Monday: Chicken Curry, brown rice
Tuesday: Herbed Flathead, potato, salad or vegies
Wednesday: Char-grilled Lamb Chops, potato, vegies
Thursday: Shepherds Pie
Friday: Pot Roasted Chicken with apples
Saturday: Pasta Bolognaise
Sunday: Gnocchi

Ugh. I've just shopped and only now realised I've forgotten some things. Oh well, better now than right when I needed the items!

That's a nice looking menu you've got there (and a very nice picture of chocolate cake!). I'm going to assume Flathead is fish, although other pictures are running through my brain ...

I'm forever forgetting some ingredient or another. I do my shopping Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, and then my second shop on Tuesday, for all the things I've forgotten!

Tracy, as always your menu looks really good. Here's one for you - how do you cook your brown rice? It's one of those skills I just don't appear capable of mastering. How long do you cook it? Absorbtion or boiling? Salted or unsalted. Need more info. I'd love the kids to have a go because they love white rice, but I'm not confident we wouldn't all be sitting there going "blurgh".

Envious - in the nicest possible way - or your lemon muffin moment.

Yes Frances. Flathead is a type of fish. A rather nice type of fish...not too fishy and not too bony.

Lisa I use the method from my 'Nourishing Traditions' book for brown rice cooking and I have to say I'm VERY happy with it. I'll post the recipe.
