Menu Plan Monday - Cold Weather Week

Winter is well and truly here now!

Monday - Red lentil dahl with potato dumpling curry (adults); noodles with vegetables & egg (kids) (V)
Meatless Monday rides again. We often have dahl on Mondays as a base because it is very nutritious and lentils are a great source of fibre and nutrients for a Coeliac such as myself who doesn't get as many wholegrains in my diet as the less gluten-challenged among us.

Tuesday - Oven-baked pumpkin & sweet corn risotto with not-bacon (V)
This makes the house smell soooo good while cooking.

Wednesday - Pasta with tomato, zucchini & carrot sauce. (V)
Quick cooking is always the order of the day on Wednesdays.

Thursday - Lamb & vegetable stew with rice
The leftovers of last week's tasty batch.

Friday - Chicken, ginger & shallot stir-fry with rice (adults); polenta-crumbed chicken strips with mash & greens (kids)
The kids don't go for ginger but oh boy, we do.

Saturday - Fish & chips
Mum's night off!

Sunday - Roast corned beef with orange mash & steamed broccoli
The Sunday roast, what could be better?
