Joining with I'm An Organising Junkie for Menu Plan Monday.
Time to get back to organised menu plans, after the bliss of the holidays and just winging it. It is taking me way too long to settle back into a routine!
This cartoon pretty much explains how menu planning has gone for the last six weeks (and first month of the new school year!).
This week I am using a number of free magazines that the supermarkets issue.
I am not collecting any more of these as I have always been reluctant to take them, due to the waste issue. But these are some that I already had, so I am trying some recipes and will cut those out to keep and recycle the rest. I have SO many cookbooks that I really don't need to collect any more.
Pork roast with roasted potatoes, honey carrots, minted peas and mashed sweet potato
Chicken and broccoli penne
Spaghetti and meatballs (make double to have some for the freezer)
Peach and Raspberry Cheesecake Slice
Passionfruit Ice-Cream Yoghurt
Lime Chicken Skewers
Garlic potato fries
Vegetable curry with naan bread
Salmon and mango salad
Chocolate and caramel poke cake
Poke cakes are a new favourite around here. So obvious - why didn't I ever think of it before?! We have also tried the lemon blueberry one - yum.
I am happy that I am able to start doing some more freezer cooking. The freezer is finally starting to have a little bit of space in it, after being full to the top with meat for so long. There is no butchering planned for at least a month so I can get some other goodies into the freezer at the moment.
Planning for this week:
Meatballs - making double on Wednesday
Various biscuit dough logs
Have a delicious week!
