Menu planning Thursday – 4 Februay 2010

I swapped around last week’s menu a bit – we had an impromptu visit by my sister and brother-in-law – but it all went well and, as I had plenty of food in the larder, we ate like kings! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s this week’s menu. We had a snow storm on Sunday and Tuesday – with no thaw in sight – so we’re still very much on ‘comfort’ food ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Easy peasy one tonight as I’m driving the kids and their friends to and from the children’s movie club. Spaghetti bolognese / pasta with meatsauce / pasta med kรธdsovs  Don’t care what you call it, always hits the spot! I always buy wholemeal pasta.


  • Oven-roasted lamb. Serving with Hasselbach potatoes (see my post One Potato, Two Potato, Three Potato, Four post for the recipe) and a spinach/feta/sundried tomato salad. No dessert tonight because the kids get their once-weekly ration of sweets.


  • DBIL (dear brother-in-law) is watching the kids. DH and I are going to a ‘parents only party’ with DS10’s class. Which starts at 7pm and finishes normally at around 4am… Food and drink are provided so no cooking for me today – just need to make sure I have plenty of Cactus tablets on hand ;D


  • Roast chicken legs. Will serve with chinese style noodles (will add chopped spring onions, soy sauce or ‘ketjap manis’, chopped cashew nuts) and ‘snack seaweed’.


  • Hearty beef goulash (will just dump it all in the crockpot) with mashed potatoes. And dumplings, just for ME! Because I’m worth it… ๐Ÿ˜‰


  • Scout night for the kids (who go at different times). So, at the risk of repeating myself…spelt burgers (from freezer to oven to plate) on wholemeal buns with homemade ‘healthy’ fat chips on the side and lots of veggie sticks and Goma dressing for dipping.


  • The jury is still out on this one. Going to have a look through my cookery books and favourite online sites (for example and try something new.

Bon appรฉtit and happy (thank goodness it’s almost Friday) Thursday! ๐Ÿ™‚
