What's Cooking at The Madhouse? menu plan 8/5/15

Back to work - boo ! But we're into May so the school year is drawing to a close ! I've made great progress in clearing out my kitchen cupboards for the #KitchenClearout linkie so I'm going to have a look at using up some of the half empty jars in my spice rack now, as well as working out what to do with the new spice blends I recently received from Spice Kitchen.


lunch - Chakchouka - a fabulous one-pot Moroccan stew of spicy sausage, tomato, peppers and eggs (using ras el hanout spices)

dinner - homemade soup


lunch - roast dinner or bbq

dinner - leftover soup


dinner - I found this recipe for Panch Phoron Roasted Potatoes (that's another one of my spice blends) which sounds like it should go nicely  with grilled salmon, topped with lime juice and garlic salt


dinner - Sri Lankan curry with rice


lunch -  Spanish omelette

dinner - chicken & veg casserole with mash 


dinner - pork and broccoli stir fry (with Chinese 5 Spice) & noodles


dinner - Jamaican Jerk chicken breasts with root veg mash & mango salsa

  1. Lovely meal plan. I love the sound of Chakchouka. Although, I'm not sure Boyo would approve.

    Have a lovely week.

  2. This all sounds so tasty! I like the look of that Chakchouka but I'm not sure my kitchen skills would stretch to it to be honest. xx

    1. It sounds complicated but it's dead easy - chakchouka actually means " a mess" because it's a throw in what you've got meal. Give it a go !! :)
