I got back into my full menu planning as of today – breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and dinners all worked out ahead of time, but I won’t bore you with the whole lot. I’m not trying anything adventurous this week what with it being the first week back at school and re-establishing routines promising to take up quite enough mental energy as it is.
Crumbed fish, oven chips and peas – boring but easy.
BBQ steak, jacket baked potato and salad – I want to try and use the new BBQ a bit more often than we used the old one, which leads me to….
Honey soy chicken kebabs, rice and stir-fry veg – For this I need to buy myself a wok, no really, I do! See there’s this wok burner attached to the BBQ and I can cook the kebabs on the grill and it just makes so much sense to do the veggies in the same place and no, the deep fry-pan I usually use for stir-fry would NOT do just fine. Why are you looking at me like that?
Tacos – can I be bothered trying to buy a half-way decent avocado for this? I’m jinxed when it comes to avocados, completely incapable of picking a good one I tell you.
Eating out – the kids are staying overnight at my mum’s place and there’s this thing Adam and I did 16 years ago to celebrate.
Spaghetti bolognese and salad – sadly there’s no bolognese sauce left in the freezer so it’s time to cook up another huge batch.
Lamb cutlets, noodles and BBQ veg – mmmm char-grilled veggies yum!
