Menu Plan Monday 28 July - 3 days to go til the ADC!

Only 3 days to go until the August Declutter Challenge begins!!!

I can't wait - can you???

If you haven't read about it yet, please do ----->>> there are some great prizes to be won, but of course, the greatest prize is a decluttered space. I really believe that!

how do you deal with potential conflict?
Last week, Annie and I got talking behind the scenes (on email) about Mexican food. I was drooooling for some and suggested to D that we go to the Spur which we did on Thursday night. I had 2 starters - chicken and cheese quesadillas and some honey and mustard ribs. YUM.

Everything was lovely until the bill came and I saw that they charged me R20 more than they should have for the ribs because I'd ordered them as a side dish not a main dish. So I called the waiter over and asked to see the menu again. Yes, I was right - my eyes weren't deceiving me.

I simply made the changes to the bill and told the waitress, "this is what it says so I've changed it here. And here you go - my credit card"

Dion says he liked the way I just said what was what, and didn't ask if that was okay. :)

So how do you deal with potentially touchy situations?

Anywayyyy, back to the topic this week's menu looks like this:

M - out with a friend
D - spaghetti bolognaise

My standard stirfried chicken, veggies and rice

Potato bake with mince and kidney beans

D - out at a work function
M - the rest of Monday's spaghetti bolognaise :)

Hot dogs and chips

Now, bookmark this blog (Ctrl + D) and remember to come back on Friday to see what I'm decluttering first.

And I'll have a Mr Linky up so those who are playing along can all link up!

Happy decluttering!

Yes, Geelong is near Melbourne, about an hour's drive away.

I'd post a link to the Cheese & Broccoli Bake but it's out of a magazine, so I'll type out the recipe for Wednesday's post for you.

If you like the sound of that, perhaps you'd like the Broccoli and Bacon Pasta Bake I made earlier this year.

Thanks for the visit!

I like the way you handled that too!

The meal sounds so good!

Thanks for visiting me. I think you handled the situation with the restaurant very well.

We have been eating a lot of lettuce and I have been giving some to my neighbor at least once a week... I seriously went overboard when planting!
