What's Cooking at The Madhouse next week? menu plan 18/10/13

Hooray, hooray, it's a holi-holiday. (Well, it will be as of tomorrow anyway !) So I'll need to come up with a double-whammy of a menu plan, thinking up lunches as well as evening meals. Luckily I have a brand new recipe book for inspiration - the DK Family Kitchen Cookbook which has over 700 recipes (and which I'll be reviewing very soon.) Most of this week's recipes (all the ones highlighted in pink) come from here so it'll be great to try them all out.


lunch - Traditional Dunkerque dish Potjevleesch, salad & chips for the grown-ups, Cheese Croquettes, cherry tomatoes & chips for the kids (Time to drag out the Actifry - I haven't used it for ages !)

dinner -  homemade vegetable soup with freshly made ciabatta (I'll do the bread, Madhouse Daddy can do the soup). Or I might try to tempt him to try a new soup recipe from the book.


lunch - traditional Sunday roast with all the trimmings

dinner - a sandwich, cheese on toast or a bowl of porridge


lunch - something involving wraps - we're on a Lunch Less Ordinary mission with Mission Deli Wraps !

dinner - Homemade Mac and Cheese


lunch - Saigon Summer Rolls - I still have enough ingredients left over from my Vietnam Kitchen Nomad box and the kids had great fun making (and eating) these last time

dinner - Cheesy Potato-Topped Tuna Pie


lunch -  Parmesan Crusted Chicken with Spaghetti

dinner - Spicy Lamb & Feta Meatballs with Couscous & Ratatouille


lunch - Pork Schnitzel with Creamy Mustard Sauce, Root Mash & Peas

dinner -  Huevos Rancheros (Mexican Ranch Style Eggs)


lunch - Pastitsio (Greek Pasta Bake)

dinner - Easy General Tso's Chicken with Rice & Broccoli
