Meal Planning Monday - 3 March 2014

Hello! It's been a few weeks since I have a done a meal plan and I have really noticed their absence. Not only have I started to freak out from the pressure of having to think of something to cook every day, but my grocery bill has been creeping up as well. This week's menu looks like this:

Peppered steak, spinach and veg
I'll have mine with quinoa but my husband hates it so he'll probably have potatoes of some sort.

Meatballs in homemade tomato sauce
Pasta and garlic bread with these for the kids. I daresay I'll have mine with some spinach becase I am a bit addicted at the moment
Roast chicken with all the trimmings
Crustless quiche, frittata, whatever you want to call it
Bacon, eggs, beans and toast
Freezer dinner - fish fingers, waffles, whatever for the kids. Soup for me.
I made a batch of sweet potato, butternut and lentil soup yesterday so that's my lunch sorted for the week. I will also bake some brownies and flapjacks.
I have found a few new recipe sites I will be investigating when I get a chance:
Australia and New Zealand has a great tradition of balls - apricot balls, chocolate balls, chicken balls, etc. I think it's time I introduced my kids to their heritage and tried something like this:
substituting rich tea for Arrowroot bickies and drinking chocolate for Milo.
Have a great week. Remember to check out more Meal Planning Monday posts at Mrs M's
