Menu Plan


Tis the Season to …………. Get Busier and Busier and Busier!!!!!!!!!  I guess it’s only to be expected at this time of year, last term of school, cadets and youth groups etc. finishing up for the year, and not to mention Christmas is well and truly on it’s way, but how on earth do my kids manage to have so many friends born in November and December?  It’s Birthday Party Central here, and I don’t know whether I am buying birthday presents or Christmas presents, but it’s all good.  We set a budget and there are so many good bargains around at the moment, and of course the kids are having a blast, which is the main thing.  It’s like having a bunch of farewell parties, especially for kindy as the kids are all off to different schools next year for prep, and it’s nice to have a chance to catch up with all of the other mums. So here’s my menu for another busy week:

Monday – Bacon and Mushroom Chicken in a Garlic Cream Sauce (recipe coming)

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.
