Menu Planning Monday

March 31, 2008 at 7:54 am Leave a comment

Don’t the weeks roll around quickly! We have had a lovely weekend here, eeking out the very last of the New Zealand summer with a few last barbeques. Its starting to feel distinctly Autumnal though … and to be honest I’m starting to hanker over a good old roast potato.

 So on the menu this week:

Monday night: Green Thai Curry. I used the Asian Home Gourmet spice mix, about 1/4 of the packet for 300g of diced, free-range chicken breast. I just mix the spice mix, and the chicken breast in the pan, and then add a jar of coconut milk, with some green beans, and simmer for about 15 minutes. Its so easy and so delicious. Serve with rice and a few steamed veggies.

Tuesday: Home made hamburgers. I’ve already posted the recipe for hamburgers and we have them with caramelised onions, lettuce, tomato, tomatoe sauce and mayo. Munchkin likes bits of hamburger with her steamed veggies (hands up whose child eats much healthier than mum and dad!)

Wednesday – fish night tonight. I’ll egg and breadcrumb it and make some home made chips and salad.

 Thursday – spaghetti bolognaise

Friday – eggs, tinned spaghetti and toast. Very gourmet.

 Have a great week everyone.
