Monday Menu Plan: Week Beginning - Yesterday!
Despite the enormous amount of energy expended, I've returned to my kitchen. I'm just doing a little bit of reviewing at the moment to prepare for an exam, so I have time to cook meals again. I'd been looking forward to wanting to cook...and I've succeeded in the wanting. The girls will still get a look-in, but it will be easier on all of us for a number of weeks ahead.
I came home to a funny sight yesterday. We've had ant problems, so Miss Sunshine had been spraying with surface spray to get rid of the last invasion. Apparently that spray works really well ~ I found a Melbourne sized (read: miniature compared to the toprical sized ones I grew up with) cockroach, feet up and dead. It must surely be the third world, bug-infested upbringing, but I thought it was funny. And I am so glad for things like surface spray.
So. The real reason for the post ~ the menu....
Monday: Recurrant lamb chops, vegies
Tuesday: Spanish chicken, chorizo & potatoes (a Nigella recipe), vegies
Wednesday: Honey mustard chicken, vegies
Thursday: Creamy pasta
Friday: Ricotta fritters, vegies
Saturday: Soup (after a BBQ lunch with friends)
You know what...maybe the girls won't get a look-in this week ;o) And just in case you thought my Nigella obsession had cooled, you'd be wrong. I just hadn't had the time to indulge myself. But two episodes from the 'Express' series was all the inspiration I needed. Coffee cupcakes iced with mocha icing was the result.
