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!

Not only does it make sense to cook the veggies in the same place as the kebabs, they’ll taste better for it as well, BBQ-ing makes everything taste better 😀
I applaud your commitment. I’m too embarrassed to blog my menus. I am going to get into the whole planning thing real soon!!!I have the problem of UBER fussy hubby to contend with. Am going to sit down with pen and paper tonight tho and try figure things out.THEN shopping on the way home from work tomorrow.Maybe I’ll be brave enough to post on my blog. =0P
Ah, but you see planning is the easy part, it’s following through on the plan that’s the real challenge, I’ll have to report back at the end of the week and ‘fess up about how we did.I have an uber fussy small girl but I reckon hubby would be harder. Mind you there were lots of foods Adam had never tried till he met me so it’s not an impossible task 🙂
oh, what sort of bbq did you get? shall be exploring for one very soon…
It was this: Beefmaster BMH4CS (the link leads to the Choice test in which it was the top best buy, but I think you need online membership to read it)
OMG, I am such a wiz with avocados. No, really@ I think it’s my one talent! I’ve never picked a bad one!! Shame we don’t live closer as I could pick all your avos for you. LOL
Hmm. it’s very late! that should have read– No, really!One day I’ll learn to preview my comments!
