What's Cooking at The Madhouse? menu plan 1/4

Woohoo we've made it to the holidays ! As usual, the next two weeks will be a chance to sort through the cupboards and have a good clearout, as well as work through some of my bookmarked recipes, including #readcookeat and globecooking dishes that I've yet to make. I'll plan lunches and evening meals but the lunchtimes are likely to change as they often end up being leftovers from the day before or even picnic type meals if we head out on an impromptu adventure. I also have a few things relisted that have been bumped over from previous weeks because I had leftovers to use up instead of making what was planned. 


lunch - I think a trip to McDonald's and their softplay will be on the cards

dinner - cheese & broccoli soup - which got bumped off the menu in favour of chicken and vegetable soup last week, to use up the chicken carcasses


lunch - roast dinner with all the trimmings

dinner - "bits and crisps" as the kids call our version of smorging ! (cucumber, cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks, apple slices, cheese, cured meats, olives, crackers, crisps, ...) & leftover soup for us


lunch - beefburgers & creamy pasta with mushrooms, onions and peas

dinner - Kung Pao chicken with rice or noodles & prawn crackers (I got a box to make yourself in a past Kitchen Trotter box so the kids will love seeing them puff up when they hit the oil !)


lunch - I have visions of a shepherd's pie type dish with spicy chicken, topped with mash and/or cranberry stuffing - not sure how it will pan out yet !

dinner - samosas with couscous & tomato salad


lunch - spicy sesame beef with noodles & stir-fried veg

dinner -  Dublin Coddle


lunch - Diet Coke BBQ chicken with rice & salad

dinner - smothered pork chops with wedges & whisky marmalade glazed carrots


lunch - fakeaway KFC, Actifry chips & coleslaw or bbq beans

dinner - spicy chicken & salad pitta pockets
