Menu planning Thursday – 10 June 2010

New concept this week! 🙂  I’m just going to list the dishes we’ll be having and not get caught up in exactly which days we’re eating what because things are c.r.a.z.y right now with school and Scout end of term activities, DH working like the proverbial madman, various parties (yeehaw!) and me preparing for my (double yeehaw!) birthday 😉

So in no particular order here’s what we’ll be eating at Casa Copenhagen this week:

On the night DH is working late

Bacon and sweetcorn scrambled eggs (made by DS10) with homemade wholemeal toast. Brownies for dessert (made by DD8).

Thanks to Lesley and Emma for the inspiration for this one! xo

Toad in the Hole. A quaint English dish which I have never eaten.

On the night ‘Mum’ is out to a friend’s very girly birthday party, yeehaw!

Takeaway pizza. And no doubt some icecream from the freezer.

Pasta Beef Satay from the Saving Dinner: The Menus, Recipes, and Shopping Lists to Bring Your Family Back to the Table cookbook. Salad to go with it.

Tore this recipe out of a magazine while I was decluttering papers as part of my latest Scaredy Cat Challenge

Chicken curry with coriander. Basmati brown rice made in my ricecooker. Will cook extra rice so I have enough left over for the Cantonese Stir Fry. Veggie sticks on the side.

Yet another recipe to try from yet another magazine cutting…

Classic Cantonese Stir Fry (using leftover rice from the curry) with prawns and peas.

Last – but not least – Leftover Night 🙂

And because I seem to have whetted a few appetites (boom boom!) with yesterday’s youtube clip, here’s the next in the series. Because you can never have too much Millie, can you?! 😉

Hope you have a thoroughly thrilling Thursday! 🙂
