Menu Plan July 11 - 16

What gorgeous weather we have had here! We have been taking in the wading pools, having picnics and loving the parks. The only meal we did not get to this week was the Quiche, as it turned out to be hot and sunny that day and I could not bring myself to turn the oven on! Instead we had yummy omelets cooked on the stove top.

I am loving the website TasteSpotting, it has gorgeous photography and leads you to many delicious looking recipes. You can search anything and come up with lots of recipes and ideas!

Here is the plan for this week:

Monday: Testing out a Spaghetti Bolognese for a potluck Tuesday night
Tuesday: Hopefully the Spaghetti Bolognese for a Mama's night out potluck!
(I'll pick up some yummy meat for Tim to bbq for himself!)
Wednesday: Lentil Brown Rice Casserole with homemade coleslaw on the side
Thursday: Homemade pizza and garlic fingers using this dough
Friday: BBQ chicken with cold Italian pasta salad
Saturday: new potatoes baked haddock and peas

I will also be trying this Bean Salad for lunch with a friend!

  1. Yum! These recipes sound delicious. It is a challenge to think of creative, tasty and healthy meals during these hot days (and have motivation to do it). Tonight I made lentil tostadas; they were delicious, super easy and required only a little stove-top cooking. I've been doing a lot of pasta dishes, too, since they require a little less cooking and cook time, so the house isn't so hot either.

  2. Mmmm, glad to see you found a recipe to use up the scapes in ( i think ill try it) and that you like that TasteSpotting site :D

    Hope you had a great weekend! xo
