What's Cooking At The Madhouse ? menu plan week 5


We pretty much stayed on track last week, but Sophie forgot to grab some dairy-free cream in the big supermarket  (I think it was soya cream she got last time, as she's intolerant to the real stuff) so we still didn't make the courgette bake or spaghetti carbonara. Her front door key safely arrived back in England (phew) so she has now moved out of her flat, thanks to Nan and Grandad's help. She'll be here until after the summer now so has just bought a new bike, to head out for some socially-distanced exercise. This week, Juliette's on a "home" week, so I picked up lots of simple bits that the kids can eat for lunch while I'm at work. Here's the plan for the meals when we're all together.


lunch- pork chops, mash & veg

dinner - spaghetti bolognese


dinner- last week, I discovered that the kids all love steak, so this week, when I saw it in the yellow label section, I grabbed it again ! Steak, chips & peas


lunch- chicken burgers, ebly & ratatouille

dinner- pork with sauce (peppers, onions, tomatoes) & pasta


lunch - there will probably be leftovers to use up

dinner- chicken with cream & mushrooms, peas and carrots & rice


dinner - Chinese chicken with noodles


lunch- spaghetti carbonara

dinner- beef casserole with boiled potatoes


lunch- twice baked potatoes stuffed with bacon, mushrooms, cheese, onions

dinner- toast or sandwiches

  1. Great meals planned for the week, with us moving soon i'm trying not to buy to much shopping in but it makes planning harder. Have a great week x

    1. Agghhh good luck with the move, definitely time to wind things down !

  2. I am glad everything went well with Sophie moving out of her flat. I bet it will be nice to have her home for a good chunk of time.
    I don't think my two have ever tried steak, it's not something I'm keen on so it's never been offered.
    Fab meal plan. Have a great week x

    1. I don't normally buy it but they've had loads of it on yellow label offers lately - very strange !

  3. What a super week and enjoy the steak. Glad all went well with the move and lots of lovely meals.

  4. Omg steak ,yum. I haven’t had it in ages. May need to look out for some on offer

  5. Sounds like you're going to be eating well ! I hope you're keeping well too and thanks for linking up, have a great week.
