I like these quick favourites. Now daylight savings is here and we go walking late afternoon too ... dinner is later most days .
So I’ve simplified my menu to easy things to cook (more comfort food
As my twin toddlers need a lot of my attention or they get up to all sorts of mayhem . Otherwise as I cook dinner each night, my twin 2-year-olds tear the house or garden apart.
On our menu this week:
Monday: Steak, oven fries and salad
Tuesday: Home crumbed Chicken schnitzel, 'fried' vegetable rice (steam rice in rice cooker and chuck in frozen vegies, sauted chopped onion,chopped ham or bacon, cooked egg)
Wednesday: Spaghetti (with 6 vegies - including hidden carrot/zucchini/spinach/mushroom) Bolognaise , side salad & garlic bread
Thursday: Something new from my recipe box ? or open to any suggestions ?
Friday: Chicken or Beef Tortillas/Burritos (whats the difference? )
Sunday: Roast Beef served with steamed beans/carrots /othervege and baked potatoBefore I click "publish " and head off to finish one of a thousand duties on my to do list, I'll share a few things with you.
My Assvice of the day - why do I menu plan?
- I always know what meat to take out of the freezer the night before. Helps me to avoid last minute unhealthy desperation meals or buying take away.
- To save time by planning quick and easy meals.Dinner is a little more organized and hopefully on the table around the same time every night.
- I always have the ingredients for whatever I’m cooking because I make up my menu plan before going grocery shopping. I save money by not buying food I don’t end up using or food getting wasted , left lurking in the bottom of the fridge.
