Menu planning

This is a concept that I have been using for quite a number of years, on and off. Dinner time is so much easier and yummier when I make the effort to meal plan, and I spend so much less on groceries. I have been a bit slack of late, but a recent post on the Simple Mom blog has inspired me to make more of an effort, and perhaps share my weekly meal plan with you every now and again. I love getting ideas from other people, and you might like something I do!

I grocery-shopped this morning, which means I’m doing things a bit topsy-turvy… AND I get my fruit and vegie delivery on a Friday arvo which means I know what I have to work with for the week ahead…

Monday: sirloin steak (on special this week) with homemade potato wedges and vegies
Tuesday: zucchini slice and vegies
Wednesday: chicken, spinach and roast pumpkin risotto
Thursday: spaghetti bolognaise
Friday: bangers and mash and vegies (ewww, that’s for the boys’ benefit)
Saturday: I’m out at a party so the boys can have leftovers
Sunday: soup and toasties or something else easy!

Bit of a boring week this week because I left it a bit late. And lots of vegies this week cos we have a huge backlog of carrots from our Aussie Farmers deliveries, even after making carrot cake last week!  I’ll have to make up for it next week with some more interesting dinners!

  1. I had to laugh at your backlog of carrots. We have an Aussie Farmers veggie delivery and we ALWAYS have way too many carrots.

    You have to get a bit creative with your carrots huh?

    Love your blog!
