Menu Planning Thursday – 18 February 2010

My Scottish brother and niece are leaving tomorrow morning and then we’ll be back to just the four of us. Meanwhile, the snow continues…

Chicken Parmesan (made with panko breadcrumbs) with tagliatelle. Spinach salad on the side. Hot dinner rolls. Didn’t have the chance to make pancakes on Shrove Tuesday (we were in Sweden), so we’re making a big batch tonight πŸ™‚

Beef tacos and veggie sticks.

Lamb steaks. Easy, tasty comfort food and DH’s fave meat. Gratin dauphinois on the side and steamed broccoli/cauliflower.

Impossible Cheeseburger Pie. I’ve seen this mentioned on several recipe websites and it seems to be a fairly well-known American dish. Let’s see what the family make of it! πŸ˜‰

I do a NEWO run on Mondays and then my WHB (weekly clean), so I l-o-v-e having something easy planned for dinner. Using my crockpot today to do pork chops in sauce and will serve with brown rice done in my ricecooker.

No need to cook today as the kids and I are at the Scout annual meeting where we’ll be fed and watered πŸ™‚

Hump day. Roast chicken legs, couscous with apricots, pinenuts and raisins. Have some salad to use up too because it’s Wednesday and ‘clean out the fridge’ day…

That’s the menu done for yet another week, hooray! Have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday! πŸ™‚
