What's Cooking At The Madhouse ? menu plan week 29

We've made it to the holidays - woohoo ! It's been raining for several days so far, but at least that's got me inspired to start dealing with jobs around the house and having a good tidy up ! Sophie is off to the Netherlands this week, having a little trip to see a friend. I'm currently sat on the settee with a couple of cookery books, planning some summery recipes that we'd like to try. (Well, that I'd like to try anyway, and as I'm cooking, I get to choose - tee hee hee !) Fingers crossed the sun puts in an appearance next week !


lunch- chicken & veg stir fry (I have a lovely-looking recipe for a veggie stir fry but the kids will probably turn their noses up at that - I'll do two separate dishes I think, one with all the veggies and the other a straight chicken stir fry with just a few bits of veg in it (carrots, red pepper, mushrooms) then they can dig into mine if they want to

dinner - macaroni cheese (for Pierre) / cauliflower cheese (for me and Juliette) - that should keep everyone happy and I can use the same sauce for both


lunch- leftovers

dinner- lamb & apricot tagine with couscous


lunch- baked ham with pasta (or leftovers)

dinner- chicken pasanda (a new curry I've never tried before - looks simple enough and not too hot so the kids should like it) with rice


lunch - Ham, leek & red pepper tarts (that use roast ham as a base rather than pastry) with rice & salad

dinner- fish pie (haddock, prawns, salmon & cod inside - potato & butternut squash mash on top)


lunch- leftovers

dinner - chicken goulash with mash or rice


lunch- baked potatoes (with bacon, cheese, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes mixed in to the potato flesh then rebaked)

dinner- homemade veggie soup


lunch- Potato, onion and crispy bacon hotpot with a side salad

dinner- Spiced summer veg supper for me (onion, garlic, red pepper, courgette, tomatoes, mixed beans, mushrooms, baby spinach, cucumber, all mixed with natural yogurt and herbs and spices - sounds lovely and perfect for the summer) - the kids may want to try or they can have chicken nuggets and pasta instead (or there ay be leftovers lurking in the fridge)

  1. Hooray for the school holidays! We still have 9 more school days to go. Ugh!
    Your meals sound so good. I love the sound of the lamb and apricot tagine and the chicken pasanda. x

  2. I have a similar problem with Daisy and stir fries... TOO MANY VEGGIES for her!!

    Hope you have a great week and enjoy the holidays together xx
