Menu Plan Monday - Still Cold

Here in Melbourne we are knee-deep in one of the coldest winters in many years, and it is fair to say that salads and cold collations have no place on my family menus at the moment!

Monday - Red lentil dahl with vegetable curry (adults) and vegetable noodles (kids) (V)

Tuesday - Spanish frittata (potato & red onion) with steamed greens & carrots (V)

Hot and full of cheese, this frittata is very popular here.

Wednesday - Pasta with tomato-garlic sauce (V)
Standard gymnastics-night fare.

Thursday - Roast corned beef with orange mash & steamed broccoli
The great thing about this boiled roast is that it provides ample leftovers for sandwich fillings and our usual "tasting-plate" saturday lunch, wherein I spread out olives, cheeses, cut raw vegetables, cold meats, crackers, hard boiled eggs, bread for the others, and a cup of hot chocolate apiece.

Friday - Beef lasagne

I made a huge lasagne last Thursday and this is the second portion, frozen for just such an occasion.

Saturday - Stephanie Alexander's Chicken & leek pie
This is kind of fiddly and time consuming but the kids & I have an open day that day while husband has to work, and they want to help cook something a bit hard, so we'll give this a whirl.

Sunday - Breakfast for dinner - poached eggs, bacon, spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, hash browns, sausages, toast...
This may be my husband's favourite meal evah ;-)
