What's Cooking at The Madhouse? menu plan 2018 week #26


Last week, I ended up going slightly off plan because, after Sunday lunch, the kids headed to the freezer for an ice cream and ran back to tell me the red light was on and it was defrosting. After an emergency defrost and stock-take, I was relieved to see that most of it had survived and remained frozen. I ended up throwing out two bags of mushy veg and had a chicken and some sausages that were defrosting, so they ended up being added to last week's meals to use them up. It could have been much worse though. I've also changed the way I menu plan. Up to now, I've always sat down and decided what I want to cook then written out the shopping list while menu planning. Since changing our weekly shop to a Saturday afternoon at Lidl, I've discovered that, purely by chance, I always hit the time when they reduce the prices on all of their short-dated meat and refrigerated items, so I'm now stocking up the fridge and freezer with bargains and seeing what I can make with them once I get home.
