Monday Menu Plan: Week Beginning 7 February

I know this sweet little bumblebee has nothing whatsoever to do with food.  But I needed something cute to make me smile.  It's just been 'one of those days'.  It seemed to be one long battle after another.  Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

On days like today it seems somehow incomprehensible that a daily activity, like cooking dinner, should remain on the list of things to do.  I'd really rather stick my head in the sand.  Where it is silent.  And there is no unwanted child-related behaviour to deal with.  Trouble is, even I will want something to eat at some point, and so on days like today the menu plan is just what I need.  A very quick glance rescues me from having to make another decision.  No thought is necessary.  Just do.

Monday:  Rissoles, vegies
Tuesday:  Bacon-wrapped chicken, vegies (chicken already prepared)
Wednesday:  Tomato sausages, polenta
Thursday:  Chinese corn soup, prawn crackers
Friday:  Tacos
Saturday: Fish & Chips
Sunday: Tuna and rice

I'm off to defrost some meat and bake some biscuits (cookies) or muffins for tomorrow's morning tea.  The kids will be unimpressed when I hand them rice crackers otherwise!

I hope Tuesday is a better day for you! It's good to have a pre-set menu to fall back on in times of trouble, for sure!

Tuesday was. Wednesday has been iffy. Working with some kids is just like that I guess.
