Our menu for the evening was very simple but all the more delicious with the company that shared it ~
Barbecued sausages and marinated chicken wings
Barbecued corn on the cob
Lemon Meringue Pie
As for the week ahead? More of last week's adventures I suspect. A lot of reading and reviewing. A lot more cleaning. More visitors popping in as well as a birthday to celebrate for Miss Mischief.
Of course, there are many more meals ahead of me too!
Monday: Oven Fried chicken, vegies
Tuesday: Homemade Pizza
Wednesday: Honey Mustard Pork Scallopine, vegies
Thursday: Bacon Wrapped Chicken
Friday: Finger food, after a big lunch
Saturday: Lasagna (double batch for freezing)
Sunday: Whatever Miss Mischief wants
If you're thinking this seems awfully repetitive, you're right. My meals have been planned and then quite muddled up. Whatever I have planned this week that was there last week and the week before are meals I didn't end up making for some reason or another. Most likely, life got in the way and we were too busy to stop and heed the plan.
I was thinking about the way my plans have been unheeded and the meals that have resulted from things like arriving home at 6.30pm. I think it's time to consider an SOS Storecupboard plan so that my stand-by meal is something I know we will all enjoy. Frozen pies or quiches from the supermarket do not inspire my tastebuds one little bit.
What is your standby meal to counter unexpected busyness?
