Monday Menu Plan: Week Beginning 18 October

Spring seems to be the perfect time for enjoying the company of others.  If it's warm and sunny, you have a barbecue.  If it's cold and wintry, you have freshly made scones with jam and cream.  Or homemade wheat-free gingerbread....with cream, because otherwise you'd be missing out on all the yummy fun!  And you dream about whether now is the time to buy a KitchenAid stand mixer because the prices are going up in two weeks.  After all, you really do need to protect your family from beaters that are dinged and go rusty if left in water.  I'm pretty sure the deep cranberry coloured model would match that diamond flower tile above my cooktop perfectly.

Anyway, enough of dreaming for now.  We have lots of concrete things to look forward to.  Melbourne Cup weekend, with two days off school and the return of our US family members the week after that.  I think we need happy food!

Monday:  Char Kway Teow
Tuesday:  Quiche, vegies
Wednesday:  Lasagna from the freezer
Thursday:  Corn Chowder with cheesy tortilla chips
Friday:  Oven fried chicken, vegies
Saturday:  Out for dinner at one of the three engagements to pick from
Sunday:  Chicken wonton soup

Are you having happy food this week?

Wow. Char Kway Teow was a new one for me. Sounds great though! Please send all your leftovers this week to me. Thank you.

I got a Kitchen-Aid mixer for a wedding present--lucky me! It comes in very, very useful. One of these days I'm going to splurge for the pasta attachment.

Super lucky you, Frances. KitchenAid's are extraordinarily cheaper in the US...although still pricey.
