Menu plan Monday - 21 May 2007

Hello everyone
Can't believe it's just been a week since we had no water. Amazing.
A cold front has just arrived in Jhb and if you didn't know that random fact about me, I love, love, love cold weather. So am very excited to dress up in my winter woolies, with gloves, scarves, coats, the works! [Edited to add - The headline in today’s paper says Big Freeze in Jhb and my car’s thermometer read 3 degrees this morning.]
Anyway, because of the Weight Loss Challenge, I did some healthy cooking this afternoon, a la Weigh-Less. Can't be embarrassed in blog land on Tuesday!

Stirfried beef, veggies and rice in a satay sauce. I'll tell you a secret - I used choc-chip peanut butter last week and you couldn't even taste the difference! Yum.

Spaghetti bolognaise - carried over from last week

Baked potatoes with a spicy tomato lentil sauce

Chicken and mushroom casserole with rice

Beef lasagne (McCain - trying it out). After all, it's Friday!

For more Menu Plan Monday participants, go on over to Laura's blog.
And now, I'm off to jump into bed with my mug of tea and my book! Love this cold weather!

It's warm here... the kids just came in from swimming with their red noses...
Your menu looks yummy. I have mine typed out I just need to post it.
Have a great week Marcia!

Sounds like a good menu. I really have to write next week's with weight loss in mind.

Sandra said...

Looks great, thank you for sharing :)

I was just talking to my family yesterday and they were telling me that it's really cold in JHB. I can't wait to go back home, I hope we can get together when I do :)

Yum, the tomato sauce for the potatoes looks interesting! Enjoy your colder weather- we certainly get our share of it up here in North Dakota- *sigh*!

Oh my...I'ts over 100 degrees here in the southwest!! I would LOVE some of your cold temps! Great menu plan.

Looks like a yummy week for sure! I'm a little jealous of your cold weather. It just didn't get cold enough for me this winter - I sure would love to have some snow! And we're at 80 degree weather now. Maybe some winter soon I'll get some snow!

This is the best menu I have seen this week. Yum!

I like the cold, too; problem is, we only experience maybe a month or two of temperatures that call for the big coats, and hats, and gloves. I hope your weight loss is going good!!
