What's Cooking at The Madhouse? menu plan 30/9

I sat down to this week's menu plan with a clean slate for once - no blogger cookery challenges to fit in, no Kitchen Trotter box that has just arrived with a new exotic foodie destination to discover (although there is one on the way - I'm keeping an eye out for the postie !) so it's a time for old family faves and a look through my extensive collection of bookmarked recipes to try. I think there will definitely be an autumnal theme going on though as the temperatures have plummeted lately and it starting to feel damp in the mornings.


lunch - probably McDonalds as it's a nice way of easing into the weekend and it's turned into a tradition :)

dinner - homemade soup and if I can be bothered to drag out the bread machine, homemade bread too


lunch - probably a roast dinner- chicken or pork are usually the go-to options

dinner - cheese on toast or leftover soup


dinner - a pie made with the leftover chicken (or pork), roast potatoes and any veggies, plus some chopped sausages if it needs padding out, and a side order of veg of some shape or form ... peas and carrots if I can't think of anything more exciting !


dinner - tartiflette - baked potato wedges topped with bacon, onions and a whole stinky reblochon cheese - French autumn comfort food at it's finest (and a special request from Sophie)


lunch -Salisbury steak with root veg mash, baked tomatoes and maybe pepper sauce

dinner - salmon with risotto and broccoli (and a curry sauce on the side)


dinner - cottage pie because it got bumped off the menu last week - made on my Wednesday afternoon off, if I'm organised so it's ready to throw in the oven when I get home from work


dinner - Day off ! I always end up having one day a week where the fridge is overflowing with leftovers and I don't need to cook, so I'll go for a dead easy spag bol if needed, but it'll probably be leftovers !
