This Week’s Menu Plan

I have some major catching-up to do on recipe posts these school holidays.  There are many recipes photographed and ready to put up, but life has been super-crazy busy and family comes before blogging, so my recipes have taken a back seat to life in general.  Not to worry, I’ll get there.  So here is our menu for Week 38.  Can you believe it?  I have been menu planning for 38 consecutive weeks, totally amazing!  Amazing that is because when you are posting your menu plans and feel that everyone is watching to see if you keep it up (even when you don’t  really know if anyone is reading them) you feel obligated to get your act together.  It’s a way to keep me motivated.  So here’s what we’re eating this week, hope you find something you like.

Week 38

Monday 24th September – Sunday 30th September 2012

Monday – Home-made Sausage Rolls (recipe coming soon)

Tuesday – Chicken with Mushrooms and Zucchini served with Basmati Rice

Wednesday – Taco Salad Dippers

Thursday – Roast Beef with Mustard and Thyme with roast vegetables and yorkshire pudding

Friday – PW’s Chicken Parmigiana

Saturday – BBQ – totally winging it, but I plan to make the German Potato Salad I made Father’s Day

Sunday – Butter Chicken with Basmati Rice with Turmeric and Peas

Happy Cooking!

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.
