I’ve fallen off the menu plan wagon lately. I’ve become boring and predictable with our meals. It’s easy because I know what we’re going to eat without thinking about it. But it’s, well, boring and predictable. I’m over boring and predictable.
More than that, swimming training has started. Swimming, combined with dancing lessons (though not at the same time), means that three nights a week we’re out galavanting. No time to leave dinner to the last moment. The last moment is 3pm. I have other things to do then.
So I’m turning to my old friend the menu plan to add some excitement and sanity to my weeknights. I know menu planning isn’t generally thought of as exciting. However after eating the same things for nigh on 6 months (can it possibly be that long?) the prospect of digging through recipe books to find something new is exciting. My tastebuds are in a tizz.
This week we’re eating
- Corned beef (in slow cooker) and scalloped potatoes (in microwave)
- Chow Mein (double batch)
- Homemade pizza
- Sweet potato and sausage soup
- Roast chicken and veg
- Butter chicken (changed up a little for the slow cooker)
- Veal schnitzels and veg
- Muffins and baby quiches
