Menu Plan Monday - 23 April 2007

On Friday we have a public holiday here in SA. It is Freedom Day, the anniversary of when the whole country could vote for the first time.

Dion and I got married in 1995, 12 years ago this Sunday 29th April. Due to our good timing, we now always have a public holiday two days before our anniversary and we always make a holiday out of it by taking off the working days around the public holiday.

So this year we are flying down to Port Elizabeth (the Friendly City), where I was born, and where my entire family still lives. We will then drive 3 hours to Knysna, stay there for 3 days, drive back to PE, sleep over one night and fly back to Jhb. Lovely – we can’t wait.

I will be doing no blogging, lots of reading, shopping and taking photos. Can you guess what my Tackle will be when we get back? That’s right – photos! After I finish helping Laura judge the organising challenge, of course.

As I finish preparing, I will note down any new travel tips and post them.

Good news! We got chicken today so tomorrow night it’s chicken.
(you can download a free menu planner here)

Stirfried chicken, veggies and noodles

Baked potatoes with a bolognaise sauce – yes, it is a repeat from last week because I spontaneously decided to go see a movie (I know – me spontaneous!) so we got KFC.

Kidney bean soup and garlic rolls (South Africans – don’t you agree that Pick & Pay make the best garlic rolls?).

Mince curry, rice and pumpkin

We’re on holiday!!!
Supper at my mother’s house in PE

By the way, how are you guys doing on the Organising Challenge?
