Well, it is *that* time of the week again and I have to admit, I'm enjoying menu planning weeky instead of monthly now. In fact, I seem to be enjoying it a lot more full stop. So I guess perhaps the "creative" touch is helping after all.
I have planned a very easy menu plan this week. It's shaping up to be quite a warm week which means DH will be rather busy with harvest.
Last night was quite an exciting night in our family. ALL of our vegetables (other than the mashed potato) were picked fresh from our garden. This is the first time we've had enough to make a whole meal with. The kids thought it was great. We tried steamed fresh beetroot for the first time but it wasn't all that nice really. At least we can say we tried.
Anyway, here's what I'm planning to serve this week:
Monday: Lightly crumbed portions of fish fillet served with oven baked french fries and a side serving of freshly prepared salad.
Tuesday: Mouthsize morsels of chicken breast meat, lightly crumbed and toasted to a golden brown served with crunchy oven baked potato wedges and lightly steamed fresh vegetables.
Wednesday: A mixture of ground beef steak in a rich brown gravy, encased in a light pastry shell. Served with crunchy homemade potato wedges and a selection of steamed vegetables.
Thursday: Tasty grains of brown rice gently stir fried with an assortment of vegetables, tiny morsels of bacon and lightly scrambled egg.
Friday: Beef patties served in a crisp golden bun with cheese, tomato, lettuce, cucumber and egg.
Saturday: Slow cooked lamb chops served in a rich french onion sauce with a side order of mashed potato and lightly steamed vegetables.
Sunday: Cafe style toasted sandwiches with the filling of your choice.
