Menu Plan Monday

It’s another birthday week in our house, Monday my only nephew turns 8, and Tuesday my oldest turns 16!, so it’s going to be a busy one.  My son has chosen his favourite Indian take-away for his birthday dinner which gives me the night off, and I’m making him a Chocolate Malteser cake for dessert.

Our two favourite meals last week were the Honey Dijon Chicken, which I think was the winner by  far, followed by the Mongolian Beef which makes a great mid-week meal.  I’m going to start stocking my freezer with meals to take on the beach holiday we are taking in a couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for my post on our Freezer Family Favourites.

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.
