What's Cooking at The Madhouse? menu plan 2018 week #48

Woohoo I'm back ! Well, I hadn't actually gone anywhere but I've been totally offline with no internet (and no phone) for the past two weeks, which was sending the kids totally screwy and keeping me away from the blog. Things finally got fixed today and it was a problem their end - pfffff ! So, what are we eating this week? Well, the fridge is full and I have a rough idea of what will be cooked but I couldn't get online to see the last menu plan that I posted so I'll be looking at that too !


dinner -  I picked up some veal in the local supermarket as it was on offer, so that sounds perfect for making a classic French dish, blanquette de veau or veal blanquette. Along with veal, there are carrots, leeks and onions in there and I'll throw in a few potatoes too, in a rich and creamy sauce. Perfect !


dinner - spaghetti bolognese


lunch - chicken nuggets with rice and veggies

dinner - there's some battered fish fillets in the freezer, along with chips and beans - should have happy faces all round !


dinner - pork chops with ... well, whatever's cluttering up the fridge ! Maybe pasta, rice ... and if there's nothing, some Ebly and a sachet of frozen veggies. Some sort of a sauce - probably made with crème fraîche or I might go tomatoey, for a change :)


 dinner - chicken fajitas or enchiladas, with rice, tomatoes, salsa and guacamole


lunch - kids' choice of restaurant/fast food - probably the old favourite, McDonald's !

dinner - leftovers/snack food (quiche, salads, bread, dips, crisps, fruit, yogurts, etc)


lunch -  roast chicken probably, with all the trimmings

dinner - sandwiches and leftovers

  1. Yay! You're back! I was worried about the absence of any new posts from you, and though that maybe you were not feeling well.

    1. I'm so glad that's over - the kids were starting to get a bit fed-up !! lol

  2. We're going to have fish, chips & beans one night too. Can't beat it for ease and pleasing the family! Have a great week and thanks for linking up x

    1. Sounds like the perfect comfort food to me ! :)

  3. Hooray for your internet being fixed. Being offline, especially with older kids is my worst nightmare!
    Great meal plan! Fish, chips and beans is one of our favourite meals x

    1. They kept saying it would only take a couple of days to fix - grrr ! Mind you, with hindsight, it was probably better that way, to be honest ! ;)

  4. love a freezer meal and your french dish sounds amazing x

  5. Great meals
