What's Cooking at The Madhouse? menu plan 6/6/14

I'm a day late with my menu planning because I was off on a school trip all day yesterday. We took the kids to Rochester and Chatham which was fun but tiring ! So, what's on the menu for next week? I have lots of exotic things planned but I'm sure a couple will be bumped over to next week because there are bound to be leftovers from at least a couple of the meals. Looking at the list, I actually have absolutely no idea as to how several of these recipes should or will turn out !!


lunch - I'm tired out after yesterday so a trip to McDonalds where the kids can run off some steam in the soft play sounds perfect !

dinner - I have an interesting Brazilian recipe to attempt to recreate - Vatapa, which is a fishy sort of stew - I saw another recipe using tinned tuna though so I'm not sure which version I'll be trying !


lunch -  BBQ hopefully, otherwise roast dinner

dinner -  homemade soup or falafel wraps


lunch -  pan fried chicken with Mediterranean vegetables and boiled potatoes

dinner - pasta bake


dinner - spring rolls with salad


lunch - lemongrass chicken with rice

dinner - Sha Shogok, which is basically just Tibetan beef and potato stew - I think I might make this in the slow cooker


dinner -  Galinhada - Brazilian chicken & rice


dinner - I have two ready-meals (mac & cheese and veggie lasagne) in the freezer that need reviewing - or leftovers

  1. Pasta bake is one of my all time favourites and Vatapa sounds really nice.

    1. I'm making the Vatapa today so fingers crossed !

  2. I like the sound of the Tibetan stew, very adventurous! x

    1. That's what I thought, but it actually looks quite "normal" !
