Monday Menu Plan: Week Beginning 13 June

Here we are.  A beautiful sunny Monday where we get to hang out at home and potter about doing....whatever!  It's nice to see the sun, although it contains very little in the way of warmth.  It's still cheerier than dull gray clouds and drizzly rain.  I have managed to spend some time baking in spits and spurts over the weekend.  Much of it has travelled out the door with us to my brother's house, and to another friend's home.  Still.  It's nice to have the time and inclination to do it.

Miss Sunshine is all set to head off to Costco as a means of entertainment.  I'm thinking that might be a school holiday activity.  Our stocks of our favourite Costco items are gone, so it won't be a cheap trip.  I think some time for a couple of salary cycles to work their way through might be a good plan.

Speaking of Costco, the one thing they don't sell that I would love to buy is American baking powder.  The Aussie equivalent just doesn't work as well, but you'd only know that if you'd seen the other in action.  A problem to solve at some point.  Before my last container of Rumfords is empty!

So the menu plan this week ~ a short week ~ looks like this:

Monday:  Roast beef, vegies
Tuesday:  Ricotta fritters, vegies
Wednesday:  Chicken & mushroom risotto
Thursday:  Tomato & bacon pasta
Friday:  Hamburgers
Saturday:  Chicken parmigana
Sunday:  not sure yet...but we'll be eating something!

Hmmmm...I wonder what book is next on the pile of things to read?
