This Week’s Menu Plan


I’m a lucky girl this week.  We are all so exhausted from weeks of illness that my husband is going to cook …..Twice!!  He used to cook all of the time and he is actually the one who taught me to make stir-fry and crumb chicken.  Basic I know, but I grew up in a meat and three veg. kind of household.  My mum is a great cook, she just doesn’t like spicy food.  Anyway, my husband doesn’t get to cook much anymore, he’s usually still working when I’m in the kitchen, but this week he’s making an effort to finish work before dinner.  Mind you, I still have to do the planning.  Can you believe it’s Week 26 already?  I’m already thinking about Christmas!

If you are looking for some new menu ideas, check out Menu Plan Monday where lots of creative ladies share their weekly menus.  It’s where I go when I feel my menu is getting a bit stale.  So, grab a cuppa, put your feet up and have a read.  See you next week.

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.
