At Home With Mrs M for Meal Planning Monday
and Darling Downs Diaries for Good Morning Mondays.
With a lot of illness in the house recently, I have spent time browsing the internet for recipes I could make using what was already on hand in the pantry, fridge and freezer. I did not want to take poor sick little ones traipsing around the supermarket! This bout of illness has also reminded me of just how important it is to me to have good stores in place so that we can eat from home for an extended period if necessary.
So my menu plan this week consists of some old favourites, plus internet recipes that I tried out during our couple of weeks of illness and that everyone liked. It is always a bonus when EVERYONE likes the same meal!
Roast lamb, roast potatoes and carrot, steamed broccoli, gravy and mint jelly
Little Bacon and Egg Pies - these are super easy and yummy - with green salad and potato wedges
Jelly for the kids
Lemon and Honey Chicken Stir Fry
Lemon delicious pudding
Moosewood's Red Lentil Soup with Parmesan toast
Applesauce cake (but using pear butter, as that is what is in the store cupboard)
Grilled salmon salad, potato wedges, steamed green beans, honey carrots
Roast chicken, roasted root veggies, corn on the cob, peas
Sticky date puddings
Blueberry and raspberry muffins
Choc chip cookies
Chewy chocolate coconut slice
Jam drop biscuits
Monkey face biscuits
I will also be making a batch of pizza bases to add to the freezer as I used my last four last week.
