What's Cooking At The Madhouse ? menu plan week 35

The summer holiday has drawn to an end *sniff*. This week we all go back to school - boo ! As I write this plan, I have no idea of who will have school when, who will have something at the canteen or come home for lunch, whether I will have an afternoon off (fingers crossed very very tightly !). Sophie leaves to go back to England on Thursday morning too. I'll make a rough plan but it will probably end up going completely out of the window !


lunch- I'm the only one at school today so Sophie is making lunch. I'll leave her some money to grab some shopping at Lidl if there aren't enough leftovers to keep them going.

dinner - I'm thinking a big bowl of spaghetti carbonara (or bacon/tomato sauce, if Sophie wants to avoid dairy) - oh, I mustn't forget, there's a melon that needs eating too


lunch- Pierre's back to school just for the morning ... so is Juliette but later going in and getting home - I think it will end up a free-for-all so I'll make sure there is pasta left over from last night

dinner- I'll dash to the shops after work if necessary so it depends what meat I picked up from there - I'm thinking chicken gyros for the girls as it's one of Sophie's faves (there's some in the freezer) and some other kind of chicken for me & Pierre (as he doesn't like chicken gyros) - with rice 


lunch- we'll all be at home for lunch, except Juliette, but I have no idea whether I'll be dashing home from work or on my morning off - beefburgers with mash & green beans is quick enough to throw together

dinner- Sophie's last meal at home so she can choose - if she doesn't know, I'll go for couscous (chicken, chipolatas, couscous, courgettes, peppers, tomatoes)


lunch- Sophie will have left this morning, heading off to the station at the same time as I go into work. I think Pierre will be home alone so he'll find something in the fridge.

dinner-  Sophie's not here so we can get back to eating fish - breaded dab or cod is usually what they have on offer, with ebly & ratatouille


lunch- Pierre will be home alone - he can make do with a sandwich or toast if there are no leftovers

dinner - pork paupiettes (sausage meat wrapped in a thin pork fillet) with mash & veg


lunch- quite possibly a trip to McDonald's

dinner- pizza


lunch-roast chicken, roast potatoes, veg & gravy

dinner- fridge grazing /garlic bread/cheese on toast
