What's Cooking at The Madhouse? menu plan 23/6

All those things that have had me running around like a headless chicken for the last few weeks are now behind me - three school trips, after-school meetings, end of term and end of year reports, the visit from the Norwegian teacher exchange group, ... That means that I can start winding down into holiday mood and start working through my bookmarked recipes again ! I've got lots of dessert and sweet treat recipes to make from old Kitchen Trotter boxes so I'm going to add a list at the end of my menu plan so that I have inspiration when I want to make something. That's more of an ongoing project over the coming months though, so I won't make them all this week !


lunch - it's that time of week again ... McDonald's ! Actually we've defected to Burger King lately and went to KFC last week but it's the same idea.

dinner - lentil & bacon stew


lunch - probably BBQ, if not, it'll be roast dinner.

dinner - leftovers from lunch


dinner - Bokkeumbap, a Korean stir fry


dinner - rice filled spinach rolls, a Serbian recipe


lunch - veggie pakoras, meatballs (for the kids who probably won't eat the pakoras !), raita and rice

dinner - I have a recipe for homemade deep pan pizza, cooked in a frying pan (not sure it will work but I'll give it a try !)


dinner - homemade gravlax, with fresh bread (time to dig out the bread machine !)


dinner - I think there will be a fridge full of leftovers, but if not pasta with a bacon/tomato sauce

Baking projects :

tiricche - Sardinian pastry, filled with fig jam and rolled into horseshoes
formagelle, small Sardinian cheese tarts sweetened with honey, candied orange and raisins
papassini - moist raisin-dotted cookies, from Sardinia again
on to Spain - turron nougat cream dessert
oblande - Serbian wafer dessert
Pan Masala Paneer
Piparkakku - gingerbread type biscuits from Finland - and a cream dessert to go with them
