Monday Menu Plan: Week Beginning 6 December


What a week it has been!  Between a Graduation, an Excursion, a Breakfast and a Supper (after dinner/evening) it's been a busy few days.  I'm really looking forward to a 'regular' week ahead.  You know, one where I work only the days I'm meant to work.  Ahhh, bliss!  I may even find some time to do the last of my Christmas shopping without having to take the whole family with me.  Surely gifts for four adults can't be too hard to figure out.

Over the weekend we had some friends over for dinner.  Unexpectedly.  Wonton Soup is not really what I would consider guest-worthy from the point of view that it is a VERY light meal.  One we tend to have on days when we've been home and done very little or when we've had a big lunch.  Consequently some of my meals this week are ones that didn't happen...but they will!!!!

Monday:  Roast chicken, salad
Tuesday:  Chicken wonton soup, prawn crackers
Wednesday: Redcurrant lamb chops, vegies/salad (crockpot)
Thursday:  Oven Fried Chicken, vegies/salad (a la Miss Mischief)
Friday:  Lasagna, salad (freeze half of the lasagna)
Saturday:  Scotch fillet for adults, something else for kids
Sunday:  BBQ, salad

I've had a few little 'moments' lately, usually when I'm really tired, where I've felt overwhelmed by the magnitude of what next year is going to look like for me.  My academic semesters will be 13 weeks long ~ just over a normal school term.  My girls will be doing a little more cooking in each of those 13 week stretches, I think.  They're always keen, so some simple 'go-to' recipes will be my mission in the coming months.  I'm sure the novelty will wear off quicker than they expect.  I think we'll all look forward to the end of those 13-week semesters!

I know that feeling of overwhelming too, sometimes it's best not to think too far ahead! Love your menu, as always. xxx

Tina's right--one day at a time, no fair looking ahead!

And I love when I have a normal week after a busy one. This is a busy week for me, but next week is nothing special. Bliss!
