This is another busy week (quel surprise) and the menu plan is all about simple, familiar and tasty. (For example, although I do intend to try to make the Snow Egg guava dessert from the Masterchef finale last night at some point, it won't be this week!)
Monday - Red lentil dahl & steamed greens (adults); Vegetarian egg noodles (kids) (V)
Tuesday - Roast corned beef with orange mash & broccoli
This is held over from last week - due to a range of factors I didn't cook it then, but it'll do nicely for this week instead.
Wednesday - Pasta with tomato-basil sauce (V)
It is predictable, yes!
Thursday - Lamb & vegetable stew with rice
I haven't made stew for a few weeks and it's such a warming winter meal.
Friday - Family dinner out
Very sadly, my elderly grandmother died last week and her funeral takes place on Friday afternoon. Along with my parents, aunts & uncles and cousins (26 of us altogether), we are going out for a meal to remember and celebrate my grandma's 87 years of life.
Saturday - Sausages, roasted veggies and green beans
G is cooking tonight, and he has a way with sausages.
Sunday - Oven-baked pumpkin risotto with not-bacon (V)
