What's Cooking at The Madhouse? menu plan 26/8/16


Well, our traditional mammoth summer travelling has drawn to an end, after a week visiting family in the UK, two weeks in Lanzarote and a week in Brittany at the in laws', so it's time to get back into menu planning. After four weeks without cooking, I've got a big backlog of bookmarked recipes to get through, as well as my Italian-themed Kitchen Trotter box to play with, but after stuffing our faces for a month, we're all looking forward to some lighter meals too !

Saturday 

lunch - probably McDonalds if the kids have their way, otherwise beefburgers, rice and ratatouille

dinner - big mixed salad with something unusual like grilled peaches and goats cheese to make it more exciting

Sunday

lunch - roast dinner or BBQ depending on the weather

dinner - soup of some description - possibly chilled cucumber & avocado soup (which sounds weird but I'll try anything once and Madhouse Daddy ate lots of gazpacho in Lanzarote so he should be a fan !) & courgette involtini bruschetta

Monday 

lunch - sesame chicken with broccoli & noodles

dinner - zuppa d'orzo, an Italian barley soup

Tuesday 

lunch - Veal (or chicken) Milanese with sage and sweet and sour onions and rice

dinner - a Cuban dish, Ropa Vieja

Wednesday 

lunch - spaghetti carbonara

dinner - Macau African chicken with rice or buckwheat

Thursday 

lunch - back to work for me so the kids will be fending for themselves !

dinner - tomato & lentil soup (we grabbed some half-price New Covent Garden soups and shoved them in the freezer so the first day back at work sounds like the prefect day to eat one of those !)

Friday 

lunch - back to school so possibly the school canteen or a sandwich at home, depending on when they finish (might only be a half day to start with) - not sure if I'm home or not yet, depends on my timetable that I'll get on Thursday

dinner - coconut shrimp curry

Desserts/baking

Bara brith
semi freddo with Sicilian pistachio cream
