What's Cooking at The Madhouse? menu plan 2019 week #18

Imagine a week of cooking without water - no spaghetti, rice, boiled potatoes or vegetables ... Well, that was the situation on Friday and over the weekend, after an accident ruptured the central water mains (the whole town and surrounding area is concerned so we've been grabbing bottled water from the shops and/or picking up the free water bottles from the council) so the menu plan was abandoned and I did what I could. Results of the possible bacteria problems should be back on Monday (I'm writing this on Sunday) so fingers crossed it'll all be over then. I'll therefore be switching some things around with last week's menu, when I couldn't make them. I'll try to come up with some "water-free" dishes for the first few days, to be on the safe side too.


dinner - hash browns, burgers and beans


dinner - baked potatoes, pork chops and ratatouille


lunch - fajitas

dinner - smoked sausage casserole (with beans, red/green peppers, onions) with pasta


dinner - chilli con carne & rice


 dinner - probably loads of leftovers to use up by now


lunch - McDonald's or similar

dinner - sandwiches or fridge clearout


lunch - roast chicken, roast spuds & veg

dinner - sandwiches or leftovers

  1. Oh my! I couldn't imagine cooking without water some days. I've just cooked a roast dinner and have used so much for boiling the veg. I hope it's fixed soon.
    Great meal plan. I love the sound of the smoked sausage casserole x

    1. We've got clean water back again - woohoo ! :) So the kids requested pasta tonight - they've obviously been missing it ! lol

  2. how annoying about the water i bet you do not think about it till its not there for a few days. Your week sounds lovely and I do love chilli

  3. Even though it was a bit of a nightmare this eaml sounds delicious!
