Menu Planner Monday

   Yesterdays Sunday dinner was cancelled! Hubby said he’d be home by 6pm, so I planned the whole day around that time. I got everything done around the house that needed to be done, tidied up, school uniforms ready, laundry washed, dried and folded, even the children had their baths early, I prepped the vegetables, turned on the oven for the roast beef, went to the fridge for the defrosted joint….wrong meat was defrosted!
  Hubs had got me a lovely joint of beef last week along with 2lb of diced beef which I planned to use later. I’d brought the wrong bag out of the freezer….

 Anyway, I’m having an easy time of it in the kitchen this week. I need to defrost the freezer and use up the food that’s been there for a few weeks. I also have a full tray of large eggs (20) to use up! So, apologies for any repetition!


Potato waffles, ham & cheese omelette

Stir-fry beef and noodles for us!


Quarterpounders with curly fries, peas and gravy


Eggs, bacon and beans



(Cleaning the fridge)


Scrambled eggs on toast


Pancakes for breakfast


All subject to change!

    I like using what I have in the cupboard and fridge but some how it seem so repetitive do you have this problem or do you have a better culinary imagination?

    I have a chef husband who gives me ideas on what to cook or ways to use up items in the fridge!

    Ham and cheese omelets sound better than anything right now! LOL I think I will have an egg beater omelet for breakfast this morning! Yum!

    And do you buy or make curly fries? I”m guessing frozen, but I’d love to know how to make my own curly fries!


    ~You’re right, frozen!

  6. Breakfast foods a lot this week. I need to do that sometime! Good menu.

    I decided to take my own advice and start taking off Mondays again. Even though I work from home I do suffer from burn out. And I was really feeling it today.
    I love breakfast for dinner. Yummy.
    Happy Library Lover’s Month.

    I’m using what we have this week as well. We love to have breakfast for supper (that’s on our plan one night this week). Looks like a good menu to me!

    Lucky you to have a Chef husband! Must be intimidating cooking for a chef though! 😉 Your menu sounds yummy! I’m curious what you had for dinner Sunday…or did I miss it!!! 🙂 Have a great week!

    ~We had monkfish with lemon sauce and rice. That was actually the first time I’d eaten monkfish, I loved it. So all was not lost! I’ll be posting pics of Hubby filleting it at the weekend. I’m a bit squeamish with raw fish!
