Monday's Menu Plan and other things...

Oh my word, it is HOT. Currently in the city it is 34C. I knew I should've left the cooling on throughout the day, even though we weren't home for much of it! In any case, it is pure bliss to come home and press just two little buttons and have cool air flowing through the house, pushing all that yucky hot stuff out!

My day at work was had its share of stresses, which had me a little hot under the collar at one point, adding to the heat. Suffice it to say the new student I work with will travel a very up-and-down kind of road and we've not yet figured out how we, as staff, do that with him. We will figure it out and it will get better. In the meantime, I've faxed my enrolment form off to TAFE to begin my Certificate 4 course. I'm looking forward to getting on with it and getting it done. This level is a pathway into University, so I wonder whether it will be more full-on than the Certificate 3. Time will tell....

Now because I must not be hot Ugh...I think I'll just melt myself now and be done with it! In case I decide to keep myself in one piece, here's the plan for this week:

Monday: Ricotta fritters, salad
Tuesday: Chicken Cacciatore (in the crockpot)
Wednesday: Pork with apple & celery, potatoes, salad
Thursday: Pasta with bacon & mushroom sauce....or a sausage sizzle at Girls Brigade!
Friday: Chicken wanton soup, prawn crackers
Saturday: Chicken & rice noodle stir fry, thanks to Miss Sunshine
Sunday: Brandied Bacon Chicken, roast spuds, vegies (recipe from 'Nigella Express')

Stay cool. Or warm, as the case may be where you are....

You are a good woman to cook in such heat! And I have to say Brandied Bacon Chicken sounds divine!

Good luck as you continue your studies. I'm really impressed by your determination and hard work!

LOL I only cook because we have cooling. Before that it would have been something bbq'd and overseen by Mr Busy...and a salad that required no fuss at all.
