Back to School Menu

Good Food, Good Life Art Print

I am so glad I started this menu already. I started it on the 14th of January, not the actual menu plan but a few things. I so don't want to do a menu lol. I have a few further ideas though, and Mum has given me some food magazines, and my favourite one Good Food from November, I don't think the recipes are included on the Taste site, so they will be extra recipes and they are nice ones. I find I can't see as well these past week/s. Hard to read normal sized print.

We had a dish with bocconchini that we had to find because I accidently used the cream and couldn't make what we were planning to make. I figured bocconcini recipes are budget and our local shop over the road has it, which is good as they don't have lots of different meats. So will include some more recipes for bocconcini.

Bacon Macaroni Bake

Tuesday ~ Spinach & Feta Bolognaise (this recipe was a big success last September)
Wednesday ~ Thai sausages
Thursday ~ Tuna salad with bocconcini Rice & Tuna Salad (from magazine)
Friday ~ Salmon & Pea Quiche
Saturday ~ Stir-fried Noodles with Pork & Bok Choy
Sunday ~ Ham, Leek & Rocket Frittata
Monday ~ Lemon Chicken Paella
Tuesday ~ Spaghetti Bolognaise
Wednesday ~ Mince

thien I am going to the dentist with my son, will know how much money I have left over and will do the second part of the menu, and may be able to get some meat from Coles. I found in the magazine a recipe for Broad Bean, Bacon & Mint Risotto. Was wondering if it was different to one we made recently and it was. Broad Bean and Chorizo Risotto

I'll put these in and see how I go:

From the magazine:

Thursday ~ Mexican eggs with Chorizo & Kumara
Friday ~ Balsalmic-roasted Sausages & Vegetables (uses chipolatas)
Saturday ~ Broad Bean, Bacon & Mint Risotto
Sunday ~ Frypan Pizza
Monday ~ Sausage Casserole

Success from last week:

Sweet Potato & Thyme Frittata

I have been having lots of luck with the fritatta recipes on Taste. All of them are listed here. I have noticed the ones that turn out really nice have sweet potato or kumara in them.

Interesting recipes:

Ham & Pumpkin Frittata
Sausage Frittata (uses chipolatas)
Snowy Mountains Cake
Sticky Sausage and Fennel Coleslaw Lavash Wraps (uses chipolatas)

School Holiday Menu

Two children will be away for a week, which I guess means I bought too much bread! Anyway, there will be four adults left in the house to eat what I have ordered online for one week, and four adults and two kids for the other week. Which I guess averages out to an average week when ds is at uni. Which means still I will be 5 loaves over for the fortnight.

Friday ~ Meatball Subs (uses pork and veal mince)
Saturday ~ Warm Cottage Salad (pork sausages)
Sunday ~ Chicken Paella (uses chicken mince) low-fat
Monday ~ Chili Beans (uses beef mince)
Tuesday ~ Five Spice Meatballs with Plum Sauce
Wednesday ~ Sausage & Leek Tart (uses pork sausages)
Thursday ~ Zucchini, Sweet Potato & Thyme Frittata
Friday ~ Baked Beans with Cheese Cornbread
Saturday ~ Noodle Cakes with Bacon & Egg
Sunday ~ Vegetarian Japanese Pancakes
Monday ~ Spaghetti with Chilli & Sun-dried Tomatoes
