What's for dinner, Mum? Menu Plans for the School Holidays
Monday: Potato & leek soup, bread rolls
Tuesday: Meatloaf, veggies (I use 1/2 kg mince & add a grated carrot to this meatloaf recipe - the best!)
Wednesday: Jacket potatoes with coleslaw
Friday: Mediterranean vegetables (this is a tray of things like, potato cubes, zucchini, mushrooms, green beans and red capsicum cut into large cubes and baked in lemon juice, olive oil and Italian herbs)
Saturday & Sunday: We have a couple of events so we'll be hither and yon.
For the record, I am a very lazy risotto maker and all the Italians of the entire world be horrified. When I have followed all the "correct" steps, my rice never feels cooked, but still a bit hard. I don't like it like that. So I follow the steps up until you're adding stock a little at a time. When that starts happening, I dump in all the stock and put the lid on. I stir every now and then and 10 minutes or so later the rice is usually cooked perfectly. Then I finish off with butter and parmesan. I usually cook the other ingredients separately and add them at the end too.
There you have it. A school term recovery menu. What does your family like to eat during school holidays?
