Menu Planning Monday

February 11, 2008 at 8:20 am 3 comments

Is it just me or is 2008 going by too quickly. I’m still very much in summer mode and its a shock to be in the second week of February.

I’m so pleased I have started posting my meal plans each week – I’m not sure I would get around to it otherwise.

 This week’s menu at our place:

– Monday night: Mexican night with the extended whanau – refried beans, chicken quesadillas, quacamole – what could be better.

– Tuesday night: Fish night – hopefully Blue Cod if they have it at the fish counter again. I will do it stir fried with lots of broccolli, capcicums, carrots, sweet chilli sauce and limes, and serve it with rice.

– Wednesday night: Spaghetti bolognaise with salad

– Thursday night: Garlicky chicken – marinate chicken breast strips in a little olive oil, lots of garlic, parsley and chilli. Pan fry until golden and crunchy, and serve with steamed new potatoes, corn on the cob and salad. Munchkin’s chicken will be the same, but with less garlic and chilli!

– Friday night: Calzones: I’ll make a batch of bread dough in the breadmaker and use any leftover meat, veggies, cheese and tomato paste. Its a great way to turn leftovers into something scrummy.

 Have a great week everyone.

    I love the idea of homemade calzones. My kids would also love it as they could choose what they like to put in theirs.
