Menu Plan Monday


I have made it to Week 10, and I don’t mind admitting that even I am amazed.  I won’t lie and tell you that it has been easy finding the time to plan and post each week’s menu, but I will say it has made life much easier.  This week I am sticking mainly to recipes I know and make regularly with only one exception, the Lasagne (or lasagna) which I found over at Mel’s Kitchen Cafe.  I have changed the recipe a little and will post my version very soon, but Mel’s is a great recipe and my husband and kids rave about it.  One of my daughters has even tried to eat the left-overs for afternoon tea.  I, on the other hand, prefer my usual, much richer lasagne recipe, but it’s nice to try something new every now and then.

About Rebekah

Hi, I'm Rebekah, a happily married mum of six who also happens to be a cooking and baking addict and new accidental blogger. I live in Rural Sout-East Queensland, about an hour and a half from Brisbane . I have a 16 year old son who is itching to learn to drive, a 9 year old daughter with Type 1 Diabetes who loves to play her violin and dance her way from one end of the house to the other, 7 year old twins, a son who loves cars, trucks and bike riding with his dad and his twin sister who loves to paint and draw her life and hang it on mummy's fridge. Then there is Little Miss 5, the happiest child I have ever met, very independent, and she dances and sings everywhere she goes, followed closely by her almost 3 year old sister who thinks she is the boss of everything and is a mixture of all of her siblings put together. To say life can be exhausting is an understatement, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Plate4Eight came about through my need to get organized in the kitchen. I no longer have time to go searching through cookbooks and folders for "that recipe we liked last week", and the more organized I am, the more time I have to spend with my family and experiment in the kitchen, which is my form of relaxation. So, if you're looking for something to have for dinner tonight, or just want to try something new, have a look around. I hope you find something you like.
