Monday Menu Plan: Week Beginning 23 August

Oh my goodness....Blogger has changed the way my little post screen looks.  There a whole lot of new little buttons to figure out!  What a surprise!

We watched 'Better Homes and Gardens' the other night (actually, the next morning!) and decided we needed to try Karen's recipe for roast pork belly.  I have a pork shoulder....but still, it's boneless with the 'crackling' on so we'll see how it works.  It's in the process of cooking now.  If it turns out the way it's meant to I'll share it with you!  Well, not the meal...the recipe!

I feel like I've won something today.  I haven't really, it just feels like that.  The Prep-Yr 2's used my chicken wonton soup recipe for their cooking lesson today.  I typed it up and found pictures of how to fold the wontons and passed it on to the teachers.  They shared some leftovers from their cooking lesson with me after school, and I have to say they've done a very fine job.  It was delicious.  I've also just realised that I've not posted the recipe and shall remedy that some point this week.  It's a great recipe for getting your kids involved.  Mine do all the folding once I've laid out the wrappers and placed the meat mixture on it, in appropriate portions.

The rest of the week at our table looks like this:

Monday:  Roast pork with spiced honey glaze, vegies
Tuesday:  Meatloaf, vegies
Wednesday:  Honey mustard chicken, vegies
Thursday:  Crockpot beef & red wine casserole, rice (or mashed potatoes)
Friday:  Homemade pizza (a carryover from last week)
Saturday:  Gnocchi with roasted tomato sauce
Sunday:  Chicken & dumplings

What's on your table this week?

We had grilled pork loin last night--very tasty! This week is going to be old favorites--ravioli, hamburgers, sausage and cheese casserole. It's back to school week, and while there will be celebrating, there will also be the need for comfort food!

That sounds like a big warm hug Frances. YUM!
