What's Cooking at The Madhouse? menu plan 17/2

Into the second week of the school holidays (still a not-so-distant dream at the time of writing !) and after a week of #KitchenClearout last week, using up packets and jars from the cupboards, this week will be more about cooking from scratch, to clear out some of my bookmarked recipes.


lunch - time for our traditional Saturday morning trip to McDonald's to ease into the weekend

dinner - warm spicy lime prawn salad with rice


lunch - roast dinner or raclette, depending on what everyone fancies

dinner - smorging with whatever's in the fridge


lunch - I think some version of gumbo may be a great way of using up the leftovers from the Sunday roast

dinner - Khmer meat pancakes


lunch - Cape Town tarts (think savoury omelette-like muffins) with ... not sure what they'll go with ! ..spaghetti or rice or maybe baked beans ! I'll see how they come out

dinner -  chicken biryani from my Indian Kitchen Trotter box, with raita


lunch - When I saw a mention of a Peruvian dish called Lomo saltado, I went to investigate because I loved the Peruvian recipes that I tried from the Kitchen Trotter box. It sounds crazy on wikipedia but I like the sound of without the rice ! - "a popular, traditional Peruvian dish, a stir fry that typically combines marinated strips of sirloin with onions, tomatoes, french fries, and other ingredients, and is typically served with rice". I shall investigate further !

dinner - tomato pie with cheese crust, salad & veggie pakoras


lunch - Slow cooker creamy taco ranch chicken with Mexican rice

dinner - Bunny Chow (South African curry that has nothing to do with rabbits !)


lunch - I'm thinking there will be a fridge full of leftovers but if not, spaghetti carbonara

dinner - focaccia tart

    1. We do have longer schooldays though so I think it's swings and roundabouts ! :)

  3. I'm a lover of leftovers, I can always use it up! Baked potatoes with the previous days leftovers is a big hit for me x

    1. Ours often end up with a jar of curry sauce or made into a pie !

  4. The Bunny Chow sounds really interesting, I am off to Google. Have a great week x

  5. love the whatever is in the fridge approach, we tend to do that every now and then when we have lots of random things left here and there!
