Menu Plan Monday - 16/2 - 22/2

God this week has dragged in. I was starting to think I'd missed a Monday and just fed the family exactly the same thing two weeks running.

Turns out I didn't.

I actually have blisters where my thumbs meet my hands at the minute. I have worked like a dog in that garden today. On the up side everything is now ready for planting and I'll do that in drips and drabs with Toots next week. I can't wait to have a garden filled with fresh vegetables. Toots has been looking forward to the fresh peas as well. If she goes missing in the summer I can pretty much guarantee I'll find her hiding in amongst the peas, eating away quite happily.

We stuck to the plan as written last week and I'm hoping we can stay on track with this. It's definitely helping each day be a little more organised.

Lunch: Toasted English muffins with cheese and fresh fruit. I did really well with my market haunting this week so the house is crammed full of fresh fruit and winter vegetables. My dad brought the muffins home from the bakery, although I'd like to have a go at making these myself.
Dinner: Our winter salad. The hubs has been craving this for weeks. Its basically just steamed baby potatoes (quartered), green beans, lettuce, tomatoes, tuna/chicken/prawns and salad dressing of your choice. I like Caesar the hubs likes Paul Newman's two thousand island dressing with an extra hit of chili.

Lunch: Garlic mushroom on toast (bread dough in the fridge to bake tomorrow) with any leftover salad.
Dinner: Cauliflower soup with tarragon and good bread.

Lunch: Crusty bread pizzas.
Dinner: Spaghetti with chorizo (still from Christmas), peas and cheese sauce and garlic bread.

Lunch: Soup or sandwiches. We have to be somewhere today so it'll be something quick.
Dinner: Black eyed bean and vegetable burgers with chips(fries).

Lunch: Tomato and spring onion noodles.
Dinner: I mentioned in passing to the husband that Annie has a snack night once a week and he jumped at the idea. Still not entirely sure what to make though. I've a mini goat's cheese in the freezer I might bake that with some baby potatoes and chicken goujons for a fakey fondue, maybe some onion rings or mini pizzas. I haven't decided yet.

Lunch: Back to ballet today so we'll just clean out the fridge of any leftovers, add bread or make some sandwiches.
Dinner: Irish Stew.

Lunch: Roast chicken with steamed vegetables and potatoes.
Dinner: I still have a lot of trout in the freezer and my brother will be catching again soon so I'll use some to make fishcakes with sweet chili and salsa for dipping.
